New York Tweets
'New York Tweets' is a single-page app I built that visualises data on tweets in New York in real-time.
Instructions: If the link above is now showing the data being updated live, please, follow these steps:
1. Open the page in Chrome.
2. Install CORS extension for Chrome: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/allow-cors-access-control/lhobafahddgcelffkeicbaginigeejlf?hl=en .
Project summary: To optimize performance, for the back-end, I used a Digital Ocean remote server which first, collects data using Twitter Developer API, and second, listens to HTTP requests and provides data I ask for through API gateways.
Interestingly, given that Twitter feeds hierarchical data through its API, I use a noSQL MongoDB database to manage data.
Front-end of my application relies on React, Mapbox and Bootstrap. For visual effects, I also use React-Rellax library.
