This project serves as the group Consultancy Project for Module 3 of Turing School of Software & Design's Back-End program.

Our challenge was to create a student-led web application from idea to inception. Project requirements included: authentication with a third-party service, consuming an API, and solving a real-world problem.

This repo holds the front end portion of the Recipes On Rails application. The HTML, CSS, and JavaScript(front_end) lives on this repository and allows users to interact with the backend and microservice portions of the application. A user can make a meal plan and find recipes with the same ingredients with the ability to share them with their friends and family.

Objective for this project:

You are a back-end developer working on a team that is building an application to plan road trips. This app will allow users to see the current weather as well as the forecasted weather at the destination.

Your team is working in a service-oriented architecture. The front-end will communicate with your back-end through an API. Your job is to expose that API that satisfies the front-end team’s requirements.
