April 22nd is Earth day an annual worldwide celebration to raise awareness around environmental concerns. Many cleanup events are organized around the world in many local communities.
What it does
This app helps you find easily events around you and connect with your local community.
How I built it
Extracted and cleaned data from map available on https://cleanup.earthday.org/
Used Dfinity Internet Computer to store the events.
Motoko functions to run the search
Vue.js and Buefy for the frontend framework
Challenges I ran into
Getting familiar with Motoko.
Being able to seed data beforehand
Write in Motoko a function to search by distance
Data is not consistent, I would need to spend some time to clean dates and information + provide an image for each event
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Using once again Vue.js :D
Disovering dfinity and Motoko
What I learned
Running and deploying a website on the Internet Computer
What's next for Earthday cleanup
Add a function to search by distance
Add a way to login and identify users
