A Covid-19 Aware WebApp. Basically, the user subscribe on the website with phone number and they receive Covid-19 daily stats. This Webapp helps user to be aware of total cases in Mozambique.
I've build an API that use data extracted from the Mozambique Health Institute website (https://covid19.ins.gov.mz) using web scraping technique.
Using Twilio Programmable SMS API, it sends the daily updates to the users via SMS (Mozambique Only) and using Twilio API for WhatsApp + Twilio Autopilot API it send statistics and FAQ's via WhatsApp (Worldwide)
Here is a github repo of the project.
- Backend: Node.js web server using Express + web scrapping using cheerio + Persistance with Parse
- Integration: Programmable SMS Twilio API + Twilio API for WhatsApp + Twilio Autopilot API + Back4app Parse Server
- Deployed with Heroku. You can check out the live application here or the live API here
The project is not complete yet but you can check it out. It's been a great experience participating in this hackathon and building a project from an idea to the application. Hope you like it.
