Development of an Online Social Networking Service

industry: Education & Human Resources

Have you ever got into a situation when you urgently required assistance, but couldn't find the right service? What did you do? Hope you repaired that crane or removed the fallen tree. To avoid such unpleasant events, one of our american customers came up with the idea of developing an online social networking service that helps neighbors make friends and help one another. As our team has great experience in web development, with pleasure we cooperated with the empathic businessman on this very useful community project.

Friendly and sympathetic neighbors

The main goal of this project was to make people’s lives more convenient and help them build friendships. So, we developed a great service which allows neighbors to get acquainted with each other, become closer, and ask for help in performing various household affairs on a mutually beneficial basis. Moreover, users are able to group according to common interests, spheres or intentions, and provide services on behalf of the leader of the group.

  • making money transactions for the paying of services through the Stripe API;
  • assessing the quality of the performed work;
  • evaluating the users who provide services;
  • viewing the information about new work on the main page;

Dynamic data configuration

Our customer paid particular attention to such development issues as:

  • installation of Sails.js framework, using modern APIs;
  • simultaneous downloading of several files to the server.

To meet the customer’s requirements, our team decided to create a new Sails environments for the dynamic management of the configuration data. In addition, we also used the Node.js Skipper module to implement the service for downloading several files on the server side, and formData() on the frontend side to transfer the images to server.
