Ravenous Part 1: Creating Project & Components

Congratulations on completing your project!

Compare your project to our solution code and share your project below! Your solution might not look exactly like ours, and that’s okay! The most important thing right now is to get your code working as it should (you can always refactor more later). There are multiple ways to complete these projects and you should exercise your creative abilities in doing so.

This is a safe space for you to ask questions about any sample solution code and share your work with others! Simply reply to this thread to get the conversation started. Feedback is a vital component in getting better with coding and all ability levels are welcome here, so don’t be shy!

About community guidelines: This is a supportive and kind community of people learning and developing their skills. All comments here are expected to keep to our community guidelines

How do I share my own solutions?

  • If you completed the project off-platform, you can upload your project to your own GitHub and share the public link on the relevant project topic.
  • If you completed the project in the Codecademy learning environment, click on “Tools” and use the create a gist button, and then share that link here.

Do I really need to get set up on GitHub?
Yes! Both of these sharing methods require you to get set up on GitHub, and trust us, it’s worth your time. Here’s why:

  1. Once you have your project in GitHub, you’ll be able to share proof of your work with potential employers, and link out to it on your CV.
  2. It’s a great opportunity to get your feet wet using a development tool that tech workers use on the job, every day.

Not sure how to get started? We’ve got you covered - read this article for the easiest way to get set up on GitHub .

Best practices for asking questions about the sample solution

  • Be specific! Reference exact line numbers and syntax so others are able to identify the area of the code you have questions about.

Here is my code: https://github.com/AnnieMcMahon/ravenous

My SearchBar code doesn’t look anything like the solution. I don’t see the need for creating an object, then iterating through each key. Why not just hard-code the list items since there are only three of them and they always going to stay the same?

I feel like this class has not taught me all I need to know yet to do it the same way as the solution does, or to even understand the solution. Did I miss something?

I love that this project was done from scratch instead of having starting code like some other Codecademy projects. It gives me valuable experience in creating apps and I can use the latest technology. Enjoying the project so far.

I agree, can someone explain the iteration through object keys?
