As students attending colleges far from home, we didn't just want to hear about our hometowns through national news – we felt that we lost touch with our local (think city or county-level) news while away at school. The idea for recap was thus born: recap allows you to aggregate local news articles by topic and read about the daily happenings that won't hit national headlines.

What it does

Input the city and topic you want to see local news for, and recap will show you the top articles from that locale!

How we built it

React/Bootstrap front end with Google Maps API integration, big brain back end stuff

Challenges we ran into

setting up/using Google Maps API, Javascript async issues

Accomplishments that we're proud of

What we learned

What's next for recap
