I love Instagram from the day I joined in 2014 and as I was working towards myself of becoming a full stack developer, Facebook and Instagram has been my ideal app to build.
What it does
I tried to build a clone of Instagram with profile photo features, one can be able to change their profile, look at other people's posts and like, comment.
How I built it
I used the Django framework for business logic and Html templates for UI. I created models to store DB then used psql to store the DB tables, views to help in UI display settings.py to store DB credentials, medial files configured URLs for both project and app folder then created forms for users to be able to post their posts.
Challenges I ran into
I didn't manage to implement the user's followers ad following button. LIke and comments button display but ain't working.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
My UI looks like Instagram and one can easily tell its social media for posting pictures and one can be able to see other people's posts.
What I learned
I need to do more research and read on how to implement all featured to accomplish the exact project
What's next for Instagram clone App
I will make sure I fix the missing features before end of April
