The Rise (again) of the Tamagotchi
This project will build a front-end for an existing API. See the
The Rise of the Tamagotchi assignment for the details of your API.
Your front end's functionality will include the four parts of a web app: create, read, update, and delete.
- Deploy your API.
- Create a front-end that implements CRUD features against your existing API.
- Practice React:
useEffect, maybe 'React Query', and
Before you get started on any of the following, you must deploy your API assignment.
To do so:
- Navigate to your old assignment.
- Open the file
STUDENT.mdand follow the instructions for
To SETUP deployment to Heroku
- Once you have successfully deployed your application: Use the Insomnia app to work with your API. At a minimum, use your API endpoints to create and list your Pets
NOTE: You may run into problems deploying your application for the first time. You may have database migration issues or other code issues. If you receive errors: STOP and seek the help of your instructor or teaching assistants.

Design a front end application that has multiple features and pages:
- Have fun with the styling. Make your CSS neat and presentable, but apply your creativity!
- The home page should show a list of all the pets in your API. The listing should include their name, birthday, hunger level, and happiness level.
- Add a form to your home page to input a new pet's name and use your "CREATE" API to make a new pet. The list of pets should refresh.
- Make each pet on the home page a
<Link>to a page showing the pet's detail. The detail page should show the name, birthday, hunger level, and happiness level.
- On the detail page, add buttons to:
- Play with the pet
- Feed the pet
- Scold the pet
- After each of the above actions, reload the data for the pet (use React to do this, NOT a force page reload)
- Add a button to delete a pet. After deletion, redirect the user to the home page
- Add a link on the detail page to navigate to the home page.
DEPLOY your front end and test it on your
SHARE it with friends and brag about how you created the entire code for this.
- Add some new fields to your pet. Perhaps a string-based URL of an image of the pet to display beside its name.
- Add a "search" field on the home page. When the user types in that field, dynamically update the pet list only to include pets whose name includes the input text.
- Ensure the pets on the home page are sorted by their NAMES. You could implement this in the FRONT END or the BACK END.
Add a user interface on the home page to sort your pets by their name, hunger level, or happiness level.
