People often want to eat at food trucks. However, since the food trucks often move around, their only way of updating their location was through twitter or Facebook. This is not only inconvenient to the food trucker but also a hassle to the clients. Thus we came up with the idea of creating a website that food truckers could submit their location to so that clients can easily find them.
What it does
It uses geolocation to allow foodtrucks to share their locations with customers.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We struggled to save information to and access information from the database.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We successfully implemented Google Map's API and a SQLAlchemy database.
What we learned
We learned the start to finish process of creating a webpage and creating a database that interacts with a website.
What's next for Find my Foodtruck
We would like to add secure logins for foodtrucks, online hosting of our webpage, a search function, and ultimately turning it into an app to allow easy access to multiple food trucks' locations.
