Trends analyser

Analyse how hashtags on twitter change over time.

#About the Project

The project uses twitter api to fetch realtime trends data and save it into MongoDB for later analysis.


In today's world its very hard to keep up with everything thats happening around us. Twitter is one of the first places where things gets reported so my motive was to build an application through which one can see all trends at one place, and also why something is trending.(trying to solve this one now)

#Why MongoDB?

I used MongoDB because of its Document nature, I can directly save my JSON objects without breaking down into tables, and also because its easy to design schemas and their relationships using MongoDB

#How It Works

Its works by repeatedly invoking 8 serverless functions on ibmcloud at 15 minutes interval, these functions call twitter apis get the data, and do little transformation before saving the data to Mongodb.

The backend then serves the data to the react frontend.
