We thought it would be fun to access tinder from the command line

What it does

this port allows the user to view profiles and swipe on tinder

How I built it

we utilized python, with requests, and queried tinder's endpoint which had sparse documentation by people on github

Challenges I ran into

since it wasn't well documented, we had to find out through trial and error what worked and what didn't when requesting the endpoints. We were going to input similarity scores for bios but were unable to since bios are rarely filled. We were also going to add messaging capabilities but were unable to due to the fact that its hard to find the IDs of people you have matched

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Learning to use requests (maxim, victor), dealing with state machines in python(nikola), making a complete app by the end of a hackathon (all of us)

What I learned

What's next for Terminalder

We can add more functionality in way of displaying images or messaging if the API is better documented or we find other endpoints
