Apps to find the latest cat and dog pictures.
How are they different?
Anyone can find the same old cat/dog pictures on Google, social media or whatever. Sometimes it's cool to be the first to find a new picture, maybe for a meme or something you want to go viral.
Behind both of these apps is a semantic crawler, which looks at publicly available content to pull into the app.
It is a bit hit a miss - without image analysis technology, sometimes the results will be a little bit off, but nonetheless - it's a fun little app!
The backend crawler was written in Java using the Spring framework, the frontend was in pure Vanilla JS.
