Cafe Finder

A group project done during my time at General Assembly made with Rails and Google Maps. Users can upload photos, addresses and descriptions of their favourite cafes, as well as search for, review and rate cafes in a given area.

I was in charge of implementing Google Maps API as well as the models and controllers. We used Devise, Omniauth for authentification, along with CarrierWave and AWS for uploading images. To create the layout, we used HAML and CSS frameworks (Bourbon and Foundation).

There are a few changes I would like to implement but will not for the time being as I would prefer to work on other projects.

  • Change in colour scheme and overall design layout
  • Include a spinner while waiting for Geolocation to load
  • A more efficient SQL command for sorting the cafes based on facilities (The current one becomes less efficient as the database gets larger)
