What it does
It helps the rural artists, craftsmen to connect with the not only the urban India but the entire world. It will prove to be a great platform for the artists to gain recognition so that the rural art never dies out. We have the unique feature of bidding system which helps to get the best price for their work. Users can even vote for their best artist's work so that he will get more recognition.
How I built it
We used HTML, PHP, CSS ,BootStrap and the Exotel API so that the information provided is not misused, along with providing ease of ordering to the rural people.Just a "Buy "text message places your order. How easy is that!
Challenges I ran into
To implement and integrate Exotel API.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Giving the rural people of buying by just a message along with even helping them to reach their art to every doorstep.
What I learned
We completely learnt to implement the Exotel API from scratch.
