Brady vs. World

Completed in record time and launched three hours prior to Super Bowl LII, this site takes a serious look at displaying data in card-like format with the CSS Grid Layout Module. The intent is to consolidate relevant data into an easily consumed format that can late be used for a gateway into extended data displays, comparisons and other visualizations not restricted by a tabular format.

The site was built using Node.js and Express.js. It includes an authentication-based back-end UI for data entry and a simplified, publicly available front-end version. Tom Brady has probably not seen this website.

A small experiment using Next.js to query the Coindesk API and retrieve real-time cryptocurrency price quotes. There isn't much to it, but a roadmap would include displaying historical data for both Bitcoin and other currencies using my soon-to-be perfected data card format.

Gitriculum

A somewhat* useful single-serving app to retrieve relevant data from a particular GitHub user's account. It's not very smart and it requires to know the user's name in advance, but it's simple and quick, avoiding all the cruft you'd get from GitHub. I have some great ideas for this app. Built using Next.js and the GitHub API.

* That's in the eye of the beholder.

Regurgimatator

Originally conceived as a bot responder, the Regurgimatator will take your original text and translate it sequentially into five different languages before returning it to you in the orginal language. It can be fun, it can frustrating.

Purposely designed with very little in the way of beauty, this beast in written in vanilla Javascript making use of the Google Translate API. Needless to say I got a lot of spaghetti sauce on my code and maybe I'll rewrite it or something. Some day.
