According to the Pew Research Center, many Americans see religious discrimination. As a religious minority myself, I have personally dealt with acts of religious discrimination. Religious discrimination typically stems from a lack of understanding, however, it is imperative that we make it clear that it should not be tolerated. I want future generations to be able to practice their religion freely, so I created SARD.
What it does
This app includes several multidimensional features, with a news and petitions utility, viewing reports, creating a report, learning about other religions, heat maps, and a forum.
How I built it
It is built with React Native , Firebase, and Wolfram Alpha.
Challenges I ran into
I had many issues making sure that all the native components were linked properly after ejecting from Expo. Also, I had a lot of confusion with fetch requests and processing them.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I am proud of being able to make such an app in 24 hours.
What I learned
I learned how to use the Wolfram Alpha API, I learned how to use the Firebase Realtime Database Rest API (I usually use Firestore), and I also learned a lot about React Native, as this is the second app I created with it and the first one I made solo.
What's next for SARD (Stop all Religious Discrimination)
I look forward to releasing this to the public as I think it is very important.
