I like vampire stories. The good ones, anyway.
What it does
Tracks vampire sightings around the UK via Google Maps API, while providing commentary about when/where reports came about.
How I built it
Built from the ground up using Bootstrap. None of that 'drag and drop' for me. I don't exactly have the budget for Squarespace anyway.
Challenges I ran into
APIs and domains are very... demanding of you. It feels like you have to jump through a lot of hoops just to get something to work, and you're often waiting around for things to start working, which is quite problematic when you're doing a race against the hackathon clock.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I made the thing.
What I learned
Bootstrap is sexy and I should use it more often.
What's next for VampireTracker.tech
Someone remind me to disable the API key in case someone pinches it.
