We wanted to help animals find a loving home.
What it does
Gets your location and shows adoptable animals near you! Or create an account and upload a photo and description of your pet to find a pet play date.
How we built it
We built this app using Java Spring Boot along with a React frontend and a Postgres database.
Challenges we ran into
We struggled with how to get started, as well as with how to get the swiping feature to work. We also found figuring out the photo upload to be a challenge.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of the design of the website and the cool features it has, such as the dark mode and swiping.
What we learned
We learned how to use an API, JWT authentication, and Spring Boot. We also learned how to make React components and connect the frontend and backend.
What's next for Pet Date App
We hope to add features to allow you to save animals that you swipe right on and make updates to our pet play date matching.
