Timeout! Time for News Dribble!!!
I am a big fan of NBA and personally I have been looking for platforms where I can get updates about the upcoming matches. Adding to my Crypto craze, I wanted to make a project that brings both of my passions together!
What it does
Keeping pace with the increasing number of matches has become very hard. So here we have News Dribble , making following NBA easier, more exciting and engaging. From News Updates, Standing Tables, Upcoming Games to Minting NFTs for your favorite teams and player! Even more, we can place bets on upcoming games and win Crypto!
How we built it
- Espn News API and NBA(https://data.nba.net) API for the standings, upcoming games and players & team data
- NFT minting has been implemented using DeSo Blockchain
- Also DeSo has been used to place bets and publish them on the DeSo Platform for others to see
- Twilio has been used to send updates through SMS
- GitHub and Vercel have been used for Deployment of the website, management of the project using Pull Requests, different branches and commits.
- Domain.com has been used to get a custom Domain
Usage of GitHub
- Created different branches for different features - parallel development
- Used Pull Requests to merge the branches
- Tested features before merging
- Continuous commits to keep track of the progress
- Deployment using GitHub Pages & Vercel
- Domain.com has been used to get a custom domain - news-dribble.tech
