Inspiration

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

Everything really!

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
