Description

Backend code for a Chrome extension that would allow users to rate Google search results.

Developed at HackIllinois.

For a hackathon project, I and my teammates decided on building a Chrome extension that would allow users to rate the relevancy of search results. I set up the RESTful API that would allow clients to communicate with a server in order to retrieve ratings for links, as well as submit votes. The postgreSQL server would store whether a given user has already voted for a link to ensure that a user cannot vote for something more than once.
