Hi, I'm Mark.
I like to build internet things.



Covid-19 Chloropleth Map
by Texas County

This app displays a chloropleth map of Covid-19 cases by Texas county. The backend uses Cheerio to scrape the Texas Dept. State Health Services' website for statistics that are then served up by an Express API. The front-end is built with Gatsby.js to display those stats on the chloropleth map generated using D3.js.

Texas Covid-19 cases by county were initially scraped from Texas Dept. State Health Services. On March 22, 2020, DSHS released their own map of Covid-19 cases and stopped displaying the chart my info was being scraped from. As a result, Cheerio now scrapes the Web Archive version to demonstrate how the app initially functioned. The information is out of date and won't be updated beyond March 22.

SwatchTones

SwatchTones is a MEAN full-stack application that allows users to search for and upload cosmetics samples that represent a diversity of skin tones, allowing for more informed online purchasing decisions. The app integrates with several NPM modules that extract prominant colors from uploaded images, attempts to discern makeup from skin tone, and displays that array of colors.

Disaster
App

This application was designed for mobile use, allowing users in a disaster zone to either offer assistance or request assistance from neighbors and community members in the event emergency services are overextended. The Ruby application is built on a Rails backend that serves a JSON API with all CRUD operations available across models and CORS configuration. The front-end uses Angular and features the Google Maps API for geolocation.

HTML, CSS, Ruby on Rails, AngularJS, PostgreSQL

This full-stack application adheres to the MVC file structure and uses Node.js, MongoDB, Mongoose, Express and EJS. There are three models (employers, jobs, users), complete RESTful routes, user authentication with password encryption, and Google Maps integration (particularly challenging using only EJS).
