We wanted to create an interesting visual project to learn as much as we could about web app and API development.

What it does

The user can enter cities or regions where they've lived throughout their lives. Tanglepath then takes this data and generates a vector graphic representing the path of your life. These graphics are unique to you, and only you know the meaning.

How we built it

HTML and CSS frontend with a JavaScript backend. We used the Google geocoding API to retrieve coordinates for locations.

Challenges we ran into

We were both learning Javascript from scratch and had also never worked with integrating APIs. Every step of the road was a huge challenge.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We completed the project, and it works as described. We're also super happy about how much we learned from this experience.

What we learned

We can do so much if we just put in the time and find the right resources.

What's next for tanglepath

Deploying to the web.
