Over the last nine or ten months of the pandemic, I have been gathering places to eat at Gotta Eat Here. So with not going out to eat or even having the means to do so. Such as a car or using the bus or metro (commuter train) that I do not want to use either right now.
New Food Resources
I have found many food-related shows. Been reading articles or found new people on Twitter with great food recommendations. The list of places they all are suggesting is adding up.
Adding My Backlog or Making Updates to the Application
So I have been adding them to my backlog in GitHub of places to add to my web-based application when I have time. The application lists all the places I have been or want to go to when I travel or even go to in the DC area.
Each day I make an effort to either add at least one place to the JSON files that power the application. Or add a new restaurant to the backlog.
I have found many new places to make it worth adding a new location (city or state) to the application. So that’s work that needs to be done too.
A feature I need to add to the website is the ability to link to a page with a dynamic map of places near the person. Or at least put the restaurants for that location all on one page. A more useful option is the ability to store the page contents with service workers. It’s for when there is no internet in some big cities or out in the middle of nowhere. So you can at least show the pages you brought up before.
Finding the Time
So here’s to making more time to work on these items.
I’m thinking a good time will be over the upcoming five-day long weekend. I figured since I already have MLK day off and the Inauguration off, I would take Tuesday the 19th off.
P.S. You can find my list of places to eat the website “Gotta Eat Here“.
