A cross-platform mobile application that allows readers to read and follow the news while responding their views in favor or against. The App is built with an enhanced backend where admin can control the content written by authors that it is publishable or not.
There are news, which set trends or impact policies in political, foreign affairs, defense, finance, entertainment, etc and many other areas. But there are always right and left wings associated with news what authors publish in mass media, some in favor and some in disagreement. People often go through news but don’t take time out of their busy schedule to know expert views for news.
This is where an idea arrived to a US-based customer to publish news associated with right and left views, that readers can follow & respond either in agreement or disagreement through their mobile.
In discussion with the customer, it was required to implement a cross-platform mobile application that can allow readers to read news or articles. The articles can be in agreement or disagreement with the news and you can respond over the app accordingly. A web backend also supposed to be provided, using authors can write their views for news. Backend Admin can control the content written by authors that it is publishable or not. Following are identified as tasks of highest importance what users can do:
We captured requirements, performed analysis and presented the customer with wireframes/static screenshots for the complete process. The functional specification defines complete process flow as well as underneath workflow under process flow, wherever required. A high level and detailed designed scalable, secure and performance-oriented architecture presented to the customer providing tech stack details to be used in this application.
The application development started in an agile mode and product/spring backlog managed on GitLab. The users’ stories progress tracked over the Kanban chart. The technology stack used was a complete JS-based stack for mobile and web application development. The server-side hosting was on AWS while the app built in React Native was deployed to Google pay and Apple store via Microsoft App Center. The project infrastructure managed by DevOps in CI/CD fashion.
