Since COVID-19 has started, the virtual environment and quarantine made people numb to the lack of social interaction within the community. In-person interactions diminished and connections in neighborhoods are lost. People got distant and are more used to online socialization. They rarely meet new people. With our app, we hope to bring the community together and encourage positive social interactions.
What it does
Love Thy Neighbourhood is a social media platform with the goal of connecting people in neighbourhoods and the overall betterment of the community.
How we built it
We built the frontend with Typescript, React, and Auth0, and we used Node + Express, MongoDB, and Amazon S3 buckets for the backend, deployed to an EC2 instance.
Challenges we ran into
A major issue we faced was the time constraint. We struggled to implement all of the features that we envisioned, such as the user profile creation and viewing.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We made working user authentication.
What we learned
We learned how to do a full-stack project with various features (user profile, posts, uploading files, and user account)
What's next for Love Thy Neighbourhood
Add ability to edit profile and view other profiles.
