Technical Details

Backend

The server and the client functionality is based on aiohttp. We provide an interface for the frontend to query different vacation destinations based on an origin destination. The weather information that is needed to rate and select destinations is queried from the IBM Bluemix Weather Company API. The Skyscanner API provides us with flight information.

Frontend and Design

The Frontend design is based on Materialize and jQuery as a JavaScript library is used. In order to represent the map view, we relied on the Leaflet.

We put a lot of emphasis on our own design: The TravelFrog builds an emotional bridge to our customer and we used TravelFrog throughout the product. With the usage of our own assets, TravelFrog shows the traveler the activities and the weather conditions at specific destinations.

Hosting

In order to automatically scale the frontend, as well as the backend, we hosted TravelFrog on IBM Bluemix. You can try it here.
