Hungry Tiger


A class project and an exercise in client-side programming and DOM manipulation on the technical side. A way to tell, at a glance, which on-campus eateries are open on the user side. Meet Hungry Tiger. The app uses Javascript (including jQuery), along with the Google-derived API that RIT provides via its mapping service, http://maps.rit.edu/. The API returns information about RIT dining establishments, along with their opening and closing times…in a single string, such as “Mon-Thur: 9AM-10PM” or similar. This means that we had to write some Javascript to parse the strings and put the opening and closing times in an object, which could be compared against the user’s time. From there, we have whether the location is open in a Boolean variable. The app also features responsive styles, so it is usable on mobile devices.
