Yumr web (discontinued)

What was this?

Yumr was an app for foodies; that is, people who love food. Use Yumr to find what to eat wherever you are, whenever. Like what you're eating? Snap a photo and upload it with the Yumr app to share with other food lovers.

Yumr was a start-up from Waterloo, Ontario. I joined the team in February 2016, and specifically worked on the (now discontinued) web platform.

When it existed, the web platform mirrored much of the functionality of the mobile apps, allowing one to browse dishes in a beautiful, multicolumn, card-flow format. Much love and work was put into it, however all my contributions disappeared randomly one day, as Yumr silently sunk into non-existence. Suffice it to say, I was a little annoyed when they destroyed my work and quietly died without alerting me.


Though the majority of Yumr's codebase was proprietary, Yumr used open source tools. Specifically, the web app made use of Materialize CSS, JQuery, and Parse, each under their respective licenses. Yumr also used Google Maps' location API to serve intelligent, location-based content.

All other HTML, CSS, and JavaScript code was written by myself and Geoff Camp, but I have since lost access to it.
