HonestTown was a project that I completed in one weekend for Comedy Hack Day's Hackathon.
It was built in collaboration with a comedian, the goal was to make a funny, entertaining way to leave satirical yet helpful comments to friends.
I was the full stack developer on this project. I built the entire site front-end and backend in just 48 hours.
Launching on Product hunt, the site got 40 up-votes. Within two days of launching over 500 profiles had been claimed and 2,000 cards of "honesty" were left.
I was able to hack around facebook's restrictive API and integrate a full public facebook search by "scraping" the facebook search functionality that's found on their public site.
As well, I integrated the ability to anonymously tweet feedback to others from "@honest_town".
- Ruby on Rails
- Hacked though facebook's restrictive API for a public search
- Used twitter's API to be able to send anonymous tweets.
