Personal project: Bird Hotspot

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
  • Mapbox
  • A serverless backend, hosted on Netlify
  • Typescript on both front and back end
  • A Redis caching layer
  • I used Parcel to bundle it up
