Development of Utopian Reviews

New Projects

  • What is the project about?

This project was made to make Utopian reviews easy by providing a questionnaire and to maintain the transparency of the review it generates a result of the questionnaire for the contributors to check out.

One of the interesting parts was to not use a database for storing the answers to the questionnaire and allow users to know the answers to it without it.

For it, I made a route which can generate a reviews answer page based on the URL.

router.get('/result/:cat/:num', function (req, res, next) {
  let category =;
  let ans = req.params.num;
  if(category < 0 || category > 11)
  cat = questionnaire[category];
  let object= [];
  for (var i = 0; i < cat.length; i++) {
    obj = {};
    obj.question = cat[i].question;
    obj.answer = cat[i].answers[ans.charAt(i)]
  res.render('result', {object: object})

This route handles the URL and makes a result object and passes to template.

That result object is server side rendered and sent to browser.

Some screenshots of the webapp are attached below -

Yes I know commit messages and comments are really part of development.

But in the heat of the moment I just flew away with my keyboard and didnt took care of commit messages and code comments.

Thanks for the remark I will surely try to follow the best practices as much as I can from now onwards.
