Keeping track of an event such has McHacks on multiple social media can a hassle so we decided to combine all the major social media website into a single page for a better overview of the event. We are meme lords.
What it does
The user send a search term and the server fetches posts from Facebook, Instagram and Twitter
How we built it
We build our application using Node.js and Express.
Challenges we ran into
One of our goal was to retrieve public post from Facebook. Unfortunately, Facebook's API does not allow searches to their public feed API due to privacy reasons. This forced us to use other search criteria for Facebook so we decided to go with Pages.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We barely have any experience with Node.js but we still managed to complete our project.
What we learned
Node.js, API calls, Github command line, Bootstrap
What's next for Triforce
Better result displays and loading screen while the results are loading.
