On a day to day basis, we never really see as many gifs as we do memes. To help the gif cause, we decided to create GIFerty Mutual, a web application built to not only let the user feel safe and secure, but also to bask in the glory of gifs.
What it does
Utilizing the Liberty Mutual Shine API, we designed, implemented, and deployed a web application that takes in an input of user's address and returns the relative safety score of that address with a meme indicating the level of safety and security.
How we built it
We built the app using flask and python, and a little bit of html, css, blood, sweat, and tears.
Challenges we ran into
At first, we decided to do a mobile app, but to communicate with the various API, we had to use an apache HTTPclient that none of us really had exposure to. We decided gifs deserved better so we opted more towards a web application, since most of us were comfortable with python as a backend.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of creating our first flask app with API integration.
What we learned
Communicating between two different APIs.
