The Binary Challenge Project is a solo project that consisted of creating a React application using any API of my choosing. I chose to use an API that contains over 500 Chuck Norris jokes.

The site is able to do the following:

  • Fetch jokes from an external API
  • Add to a list of "liked" jokes when on the Main page
  • Render a thumbs down button on each div when navigated to the "Likes" page and use said button to remove a joke from the "Likes" list *Utilize React Router to go to different pages, application goes to homepage when undefined routes are attempted.
