Ashish Mehra May 12 Updated on May 13, 2018
What I built
This is a simple live photo polling application which updates the chart in real time and also the count of votes in homepage. This application has admin panel which allows admin to start and stop the competition.
Admin Login :
email : email@example.com
password : 123456789
I'm using 3 channels in my application :
Home Channel for updating the homepage vote counts.
Admin Channel for updating the poll chart of the admin page.
User Channel for informing the owner of a photo when the competition starts or ends.

How I built it
I used :
Express JS for creating the backend of this application.
mLab for for hosting Mongo Database.
Cloudinary for hosting image files.
Pusher API for notifications and live updates.
Heroku for app deployment.

Special thanks to Dev.to team for this contest, Zan Markan for clearing my doubts and Traversy Media for short and simple pusher tutorial intro series.
