This is a simple AirBnB clone that is mainly made of these components:

  • A command interpreter to manipulate data without a visual interface, like in a Shell (perfect for development and debugging)
  • A website (the front-end) that shows the final product to everybody: static and dynamic
  • A database or files that store data (data = objects)
  • An API that provides a communication interface between the front-end and your data (retrieve, create, delete, update them).

Tech Stack

  • HTML, CSS, JS
  • Python, Flask
  • MySQL
  • Bootstrap
