Team no. 70
There has been a rise of fake news that is also haring the society. Fake news was also one of the reasons that caused people to outrage and attack on the Capitol, this month. There was a simliar outrage by alleged farmers in India, who started to protest violently because of fake news. These are just 2 of the unfortunate events that have occured in a span of time. To create awareness amongst the youth and other age groups, it is important for everyone to be aware of what is fake and what is authentic, and this is a reason why I created it
What it does
So basically, it is similar to any other news platform, but the UI is very different. UI seems to be like a Chat Application and is very attractive. But in addition to these things, there will be a credibility %, which will give users an idea of how true this news is. The credibility will be based on different criteria, that one will have to fullfill. Right now anyone can write an article using google login, so that everyone from this hackathon can take part on it.
How we built it
We built it using ReactJS, Redux, Google Authentication, Firebase and Material UI.
Challenges we ran into
The biggest challenge was that I was working on a Virtual Machine and the time wasn't synced with my laptop. As a result, when I commited, it showed that I had started working on it 6 days back. Anyways, we were able to sort out with MLH, and they said that it should not affect your submission criteria.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We tried pair programming for the first time Virtually, using VSCode Live Share
