Reviews

  • Pros: 

    Nice design

    Cons: 

    It didn't give me any recommendations. The films to rate is too narrow a selection.

    I am still looking for that great film recommendation app. One that goes beyond the usual mainstream/blockbuster suggestions as well as a good listmaking capability

Nice idea. But library is small. An integration with Trakt.tv would be a great plus.

@charlesbonneau Integration sounds good. I will look into it. Thanks! :D

Can you add a down arrow on the landing page. I had no idea what I should be doing when it loaded. After reading about the product it looks interesting. Dope🚬🚬

There are SO many services like this already. How is yours different?
Yomesh GuptaMaker@yomeshgupta · Software Engineer, AdPushup
@idahole_dot_com I am sure there might be many services out there already like this. However, in many domains, similar services coexist. My aim here was not to commercialize but to create a underlying agnostic recommendation engine which can work on variety of things. It is built ground up without using libraries like Scikit or likes. I would say Re is different in terms of a more ease-of-use approach, dead straight UX and underlying machine learning algorithm. Try it out! More people use it, better would be the results! :D

Why did you create the backend with Node, instead of writing the whole thing with Python?
Yomesh GuptaMaker@yomeshgupta · Software Engineer, AdPushup
@nderkach Node/JavaScript is my go to language. I find it comparatively easy to write and maintain code in Node. Especially when it comes to APIs. I did shift the ML heavy lifting to Python. However, all Re's usecases Node was more than sufficient. Hence, Node.
