With 2020 in the behind us and the lockdown restrictions finally lifting we got inspired to create something that helps people easily find amazing places to visit near them.
What it does
The "Popular" page lists some of the best places to visit near the user's location. The "Explore" page allows the user to search for a place or a location.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
It was our first time using Radar.io but we are happy with the outcome. Also, the SDK function for Radar's search places API wasn't working so we had to use XMLHttpRequest to make a GET request to the API and then parse the response into JSON and use that.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are really proud that we managed to make a web-application that fetches the user's location and gives the user some amazing places to visit.
What we learned
We learned that there are always multiple ways to do the same thing and that Radar.io is a pretty sturdy API for looking up places and getting the user's location.
