In this project you will take advantage of a search engine application interface created by a third party developer and create a useful recipe search engine web page that you can either use on your own computer or host it on the web to show to friends. By the end of the project, you will understand the principles of REST, API and write code in JavaScript to interface with other systems in web pages. *** Important Update! Please Read Before You Proceed *** After the 31st of January, one of the third-party servers that the course reply on ceased to function. As a result, I have created my own replacement server. You will need to follow the following changes to the course content: 1. Where https://cors-anywhere.herokuapp.com/ is mentioned, substitute https://skycors.skyroute66.com/?target= 2. The only place it is used in the code should be in the file kitchenblue.js. The after-class contents that will be emailed to you has been updated to reflect this change so you will not need to make any changes to it. Thank you for your attention and for taking my class!
