Database-driven User-based Application
Sign up and visualize your accomplishments in life by entering sentences about yourself.
This app was an idea for a long time before it finally came to fruition. It is written in PHP using the Laravel Framework. Data is represented using the arborjs visualization library.
On the client side, I made AJAX requests to the server to add nodes and request users’ graphs. Reading graph data required PHP objects to be converted to JSON so that arborjs could display them. I also used the Google Charts API to compile statistics on users’ graphs.
Single Page Applications
Search for a movie and visualize its similar movies.
I got my first taste of an API (Rotten Tomatoes) while developing this app. I also had more exposure to arborjs.
Log in with Facebook, select one of your friends, and visualize the connections between all of the friends you share.
Visualize your Facebook friends’ location or hometown using Google Maps.
I’ve always loved maps, so I wanted to create something that utilized the Google Maps API. I combined that back with Facebook’s API and created something that might actually be helpful to people!
