CrueltyFree4Me is a community listing of cruelty-free and non-cruelty free brands, as well as a location tracker and vegetarian restaurant finder with user authentication, geolocation and Google Maps.

It employs the Google places API to find the restaurants and displays them on a Google static map with the option of viewing the same locations on the Google Maps page.


This is a full CRUD petfinder application for magical (and non-magical) animals using postgreSQL, Node.js/Express, and ReactJS with user authentication. It uses the Yelp API to display a real local animal shelter from each borough in New York City. It then allows the user to view and put a new animal up for adoption, as well as edit or "adopt" (aka delete) the animal. KITTY HEALTH TRACKER

This is a full CRUD health tracker app, which tracks daily health stats and displays averages of the stats. It is built using Node.js/Express, postgreSQL, and EJS. It displays several different health stats and allows users to have a daily entry into the database. Users can then view their averages on top of the tracker, as well as edit or delete previous entries. It employs the GIPHY API to display funny cat GIFs throughout the site as an added fun touch.
