MLH Prime had no wifi for about half the event but that wasnt going to stop us from making something.
What it does
How we built it
With computers using Nodejs, ElasticSearch, and Chrome Extension
Challenges we ran into
Wifi is apparently the rarest meme of all, racking up data plans on our phones while caching data.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Caching offline when you can't get online. Also figuring out ElasticSearch since that was the hardest challange in this project. But ElasticSearch has some amazing capabilities that made it worth using in our project.
What we learned
Tethering to a phone hotspot is expensive af O_O. ElasticSearch and how its works in terms of connecting with a database and returning data through it.
What's next for StackCache
Download the entire internet for offline use by the next MLH Prime event next summer, and add more developer friendly websites to be cached regulary.
