Inspired by VSinder, we combined elements of LumiNUS and Tinder to create this dating application.
What it does
LuminDER is a dating app for NUS students that takes on the familiar interface of LumiNUS and is a wordplay on Tinder.
How we built it
We used the MERN stack (Mongo, Express, React, Node), Bootstrap for styling and Firebase for authentication.
Challenges we ran into
Team was inexperienced with web development, unfamiliar with Firebase and React context, file uploading and missed out on some design issues.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Setting up the entire project base from scratch, learning/re-learning React Bootstrap, setting up a chat page, solve the card matching problem, solving authentication issues
What we learned
Project setup and structuring, web development, system design, database management
What's next for LuminDER
Make the chat real-time using web sockets and fix login issues.
