COVID-19 Hungary

So, I built an app for the COVID-19 ‘pandemic’ - it’s hosted at by Glitch - check it out!

Tech info:

  • It’s a Node.js/Express app
  • It fetches data the site, and parses it to read out key data points
  • It saves that to an NEDB database with a time stamp
  • If there’s a database entry within the past 30 mins, then the app will read that, rather than refetching the data
