My Capstone Project: Food For Thought

Full Stack Web Application that takes a spin on Pinterest for foodies, users can create and share recipes.The project was completed in a team capacity consisting of four developers, during which I led the front-end development, storyboarding, and project planning. Dishes are organized on individual cards with a comment section populated by user comments on the dish. Registered users can create their own dishes with unique recipes, edit dishes belonging to their profile, or delete their uploaded dishes. Recipes for the site are generated using the Spoonacular API via Ajax requests for Json objects provided by the API.
