It is much easier to understand and absorb information in one's native language. This platform will give people an opportunity to learn about what is trending on Twitter around the world, in their preferred language.
What it does
Let's users select a Country and a Trend and view trending tweets in a selected language.
How we built it
We used tweepy library, google cloud translation API and flask for the backend and ReactJS for the frontend. The application is deployed on GCP. Figuring out the frontend design was also a challenge.
Challenges we ran into
Deploying the application on GCP and making the google cloud translation work took some time.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Having developed and deployed an end to end application.
What we learned
To come up with a use case that will be impactful takes a good amount of end to end research. Designing the application properly will reduce development time.
What's next for Language Friendly Twitter
Definitely a better design. The application requires a good amount of testing for various testing. Adding more languages and content.
