Unit 7 Proposal for External Data

  • Public
By Kelsey in the group COMP 266 May 22, 2020 - 11:27am


I would like to use the Youtube API to allow the user to search for a video tutorial about Unity. This will be helpful for users so they won't need to open multiple tabs in order to find what they need. I would also like to upload a JSON file to the landing and use that to add data about fictional people have made. On idnex.html I will add a small image slider that will show 3 different projects at a time and will cycle through 5 or 6 scrolling one to the left after x seconds. I would like to do this because I am having trouble finding API's to use, in this blog post Jon says that it is okay to use a local file for data as long as it is external to the HTML, CSS, and JavaScript of the site. This will be helpful because it would allow the users to view projects that others have made after going through the site tutorials. Also if I have time I would like to make it so the users can send a request that their project is added to the slide show.
