Griffin was created because of the effect Covid-19 had on our communities and neighborhoods. Social distancing was one of the many things implemented during the pandemic. Griffin was created to reunite the community together and have one place to have all the community information circulating. It was also made to easily announce events and ask for help.
What it does
Griffin allows members of a community to discuss current events through blogs and allows neighborhoods to come together and be able to communicate on their daily activities and inform others of different occurrences that are happening. It can keep everyone informed and safe of harsh weather to just fun activities people might wanna share with others! It also helps communities get together considering the recent outbreak, Covid-19. The core of it is a map where you can pin things down to alert someone of something. It also has a blog like the part where people can post things like a missing poster or just a nice post about the weather.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
What we learned
We learned to React for the first time and learned to make components, how to import, how to render and much more. Before we learned to React we learned ES6 so we could code React. We also learned Firebase to use for the website to store and retrieve data.
What’s next for Griffin
What we envision next for Griffin is a fully finished map with more categories and a more robust map that is from google. We also plan on adding a role system where there can be presidents of a neighborhood. We would also like to track more user data such as time in the neighborhood, the
number of posts, and last day active.
