After using sites like Craiglist and the facebook page UT buy sell trade we were annoyed on how they were set up. The UT buy sell trade was difficult to search since there was no overarching organization. Craglist also seemed a bit sketchy since anyone could sign up and make posting.
What it does
It provides a site similar to Craiglist in the fact that you post things that you want to sell and make a meeting with a person. However you are required to sign up with a valid college email.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We original planed to use angular but we couldn't figure out set up directives how we wanted to. We also ran into issues setting up the sever connection and deleteing items that took up space.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We have a useable site and got the database working.
What we learned
What's next for buymyjunk
We want to change up the ui to make it look nicer and add more search functionality
