This was a pleasing app to develop. I wanted to make a mapping application that showed what birds are being observed in what locations. Ebird helpfully has that data. However, Ebird’s own site does not make it easy to find the information I want. So, I made this app.
Tech used in this app:
- A React front end and Bootstrap 5
- A serverless backend, hosted on Netlify
- Typescript on both front and back end
- A Redis caching layer
- I used Parcel to bundle it up
