Inspiration

More and more people buy products from ecommerce website, especially during this pandemic. But not every site is safe and trustworthy, we may get faulty products from a site we purchase and never get our refunds back. This web application is built to help users make better decision every time they want to buy products from an ecommerce site.

What it does

This web application gets URL from user and display important information including ip address, location of server, location of ip address, and more importantly, the reviews from other users regarding this merchant website. It also comes with a simple extension for users to quickly look at some of these information.

How we built it

We use React to build front-end; express js and other node js packages are used to power the application. Data are stored on MongoDB Atlas

Challenges we ran into

Some websites have their WhoIs record hidden, so we came up with the idea of showing all hidden elements of those websites.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We're proud of everything we'd done for the last 24 hours, the application was able to run successfully.

What we learned

We all learned a lot, problems kept appearing and we were able to learned from fixing all problems. Team collaboration is probably the best thing we learnt from this virtual hackathon.
