I always find interesting the way most of Speakeasy bars are: you need a password, or you have to know a secret door, or you have to open a door in a random place.
What it does
Is a directory of speakeasy bars in NYC, but to access the information of them, you have to solve a riddle.
How I built it
I built it with Fuse, a framework to make native mobile apps. I use Loopback to access the API for the list and the visual recognition API of Watson for the riddle.
Challenges I ran into
Learning Loopback and making the whole app in such short amount of time without being a full time developer. I couldn't get Watson recognition image service to work, because I can't send a raw image to the service.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
What I learned
How to make an API with Loopback and improve my proficiency with Fuse
What's next for Speakeasy Finder
Maybe I publish it, but it's mainly just for fun
