I’m looking for a bit of direction here.
I’m creating a webapp that is very simple in design and I want to know if JS is the best approach.
To simplify what I am looking for this is what I want to accomplish:
Four buttons (there will be more eventually). You click on them to select from a variety of pictures (100+).
Each button will have check boxes associate with them to ‘flag’ them as primary, secondary or tertiary.
And the most important part… generate a link you can share to others with the choices you have selected.
I have some background with web design and programming but I’m wondering what is the simplest (and quickest) way to go about this.September 10, 2015 at 6:13 am #207925SenffParticipant

Simplest and quickest: hire someone else to do it for you.
Probably better: doing it yourself, using JS indeed. I’m not entirely sure what you want to do, so perhaps you should start out with creating something in Codepen.io and show it to us, so we can help you out with that.September 10, 2015 at 6:57 am #207931nkriscParticipant
I think the real question is does this app live entirely in the browser or do you need a backend for it?September 10, 2015 at 8:15 am #207957GidiolfParticipant
Thanks for the replies! Here is a very simple representation of what I want to accomplish.
@Senff Have been considering hiring someone but… #startup life. I’m working on staging the site and coding what I can for additional help.
@Paulie_D I made the image above, let me know if you have any thoughts.
@nkrisc There will be a database for the URLs, but other then that it should be entirely browser based.September 11, 2015 at 7:26 am #208045nkriscParticipant
There’s a lot of things you could go with, but something like Meteor http://www.meteor.com might help you get something prototyped and working quickly. It’s not the right solution for everything (in terms of a production app) but it’s very easy to get a working prototype app up and running. Meteor works well for single-page apps.
