Heya everyone!

So against better judgement, I went ahead and tried to build a web application with Framer for a class project. If you're a Steam/PC-Gaming enthusiast, I hope you enjoy this little proof-of-concept for a Library-Curating Interface (something similar to Steam Queue).

Framer runs things on the front-end and communicates with a ParseJS DB that a teammate helped put together. You can look into the Parse API we built if you're curious via the Apiary linked in the GitHub. That Parse back-end then connects to the public Steam Web-API that passes along pretty much all Steam user and game data - from profile names to game tags to games in your library.

The final product ended up not having all the features we wanted (multiple Criteria selection, multiple follow-up Questions, and a LOT more polish) but we were happy with how it came out. I also cringe at how there's *no* Modules used in this project, but it was a hectic semester so this project turned out pretty hack-y.

For those out there who are trying to get Parse working with your Framer Project and have any questions, feel free to reach out and I'll be more than happy to try and help!

Any feedback is always appreciated! Thanks :D

Love the concept, and it's incredible to see an idea articulated regardless of good judgement. Don't know if you have a web link for the project, but I'll have to check it out when I'm at a machine. I'd definitely suggest writing a post mortem on the project and how it was working with these three tools together, I'd love to hear about it!
