Summary

An Food sharing App with the simplest UI possible

Description
I want to create a Foodsharing App. (You can list food if you’ve some left over and people come and pick it up). I want to give it a very simple UI so you need 3 clicks to list your food. I would use firebase for the backend and native apps on the mobile side. I definetly would need help for Android (I am only into iOS dev). I have a GitHub repo here, but it’s still empty: https://github.com/bcye/foodsharingapp I have set up a sitter channel for discussions, etc. https://gitter.im/foodsharingapp/Lobby

    Tech stack just lists os. Any specific languages in mind?

    @olback for iOS I'll definetly do Swift, because it's partly an exercise project for me. As for Android, I don't know, as I don't know about android dev and am searching for collaborators to port the app to android/code it for android

    @bcye Maybe take a look at flutter.io? I don't have experience with it but looks promising and it's cross platform.

    Are you gonna publish this to the store?

    @olback I have seen flutter but I want to build it native for iOS, as it's partly practice for me

    @bcye sure, only use it for Android unless you want to make the app in Java 🙄

    I can help you with the whole native Android Java or kotlin app but after 11/6?

    @olback can look into it but neither do I know java

    use kotlin or java in your case. flutter is harder to set up than native development and harder to learn imo.

    currently, im converting an android java app to flutter because i dont have a mac to do swift on

    There are two apps with a similar idea in the german App Store, which may be inspiring:
    - ResQ Club
    https://itunes.apple.com/de/app/...
    - Too Good To Go

    @Hu-bot0x58 That’s my point. I just want to get more people to participate in foodsharing by making it fun and as a social network

    @Hu-bot0x58 That‘s why I said that it could inspire. Don‘t want to stop him from making his idea real. (:

    I have Firebase and iOS (Swift and ObjC) knowledge. Worked on some private projects of mine and I am an iOS developer as my main job ;)

    @WingedDestinyX I am learning Swift. Have tried to make an firebase app for two months. Couldn’t figure out async. Gave up. Am much better yet though. I hope so.

    @bcye you could check out RxSwift if you want to go async when fetching data. It will make life more simple :p RayWenderlich has a good book for that too that I just learned ;) But the docs on their Git is also good.

    @WingedDestinyX I Took the right course on treehouse by now. The project was before 1 year or so. But I though async == closures and therefore hadn’t a clue what to search for.

    @calmyourtities won't you need a mac to compile it for iOS?

    if it is such a simple UI you could just do a PWA so it'd work on all devices via browser.
