A tool which allows to add multiple links and a message board to Instagram biography.
My friend runs an Instagram business profile, Amigo Writing. She often shares hand-drawn pictures with motivating quotes or books on Facebook, Medium, and Instagram. However, Instagram only allows one external link in the biography, so my friend asked me to design and develop a page with multiple links.
I think we need to differ from existing services such as Linktree, Shorby, etc., so I proposed adding a public message board where her fans can leave messages and recommend books or quotes they enjoyed.

In a traditional web application when users click on a button, the whole page will refresh on request, which may cause users to wait for the page to reload. However, in a single page application (SPA) when users click on a button, only the affected part of the page will refresh.
I use Node.js as the back-end to handle the user requests and retrieve data from servers, and I use Firebase as the database for data storage. Moreover, I deploy it to Heroku service, which is free. I have applied what I have learned in the NTU Information System Training Program, and it’s my first time accomplishing full-stack work. I felt a sense of pride in achieving this work!
In coordination with Amigo Writing’s profile picture, I use red, pink, and purple to design this web-page.
