BBC World News used to show cool "breakfillers" in-between programmes. These consisted of news bites, global weather forecasts, world time checks and so on.

What it does

It does the news bit... Started work on implementing the weather but didn't have time.

How I built it

Blood, sweat and tears. Mostly blood.

Challenges I ran into

  • I started this on my own after half of my original team left overnight.
  • JavaScript is hard when you've only slept for a couple of hours the whole weekend

What I learned

Ajax API requests

What's next for News break-filler

  • Everything else the BBC World News breakfillers did.
