Inspiration

Shared wanderlust and a penchant for saving money (aka being a student).

What it does

Inspires users to pursue traveling even when tied down to a limiting budget. Our product lets the user FLEYE by the seat of their pants.

How we built it

The backend was built using Express.js (a NODE framework), the handlebars templating engine, and the Amadeus API. The front end was built using Google Maps, HTML, CSS, and Javascript.

Challenges we ran into

We had a difficult time getting the backend and front end talking to one another. We also had issues, on the user end, balancing constraints with freedom. While we wanted to give the user agency, we also wanted to constrain the search for query purposes.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Learning how to use Node! Learning how to utilize the skill set of every team member.

What we learned

Having a good team makes everything better.

What's next for FLEYE

  • Deploy the site on heroku
  • Multi-city roundtrip options
  • Extra information like purchasing power
  • Possibly utilizing YapQ to furhter inspire travel
  • Efficiency
