We were inspired by the events in Texas, where the government struggled to hand out essential supplies to residents.
What it does
It connects people who need stuff with people who have it, in real time. Giving out food? list yourself and let people nearby know!
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
For most of the people on the team, it was our first hackathon and we are happy with what we have built and learnt in 2 days. Playing with databases, models, views and routing is not easy but we built a functional app at the end of the day!
What we learned
What's next for LocalRelief
Many things can be improved from the way to site looks to adding more features such as a timer for your event (say you are only selling something for an hour), a better filter system, tags for all your events and much more. We also plan to deploy it to heroku to have it accessible online.
