YRDSB Teach Assist Server

YRDSB Teach Assist Server

Server for YRDSB Teach Assist's app and website.


Fetch TA Data

One of the three programs in the project. Other two: YRDSB Teach Assist Mobile, YRDSB Teach Assist Web.

Made by a grade 11 student in MCI.

This is a tool for fetching data from Official Teach Assist and rearranging it to a machine-friendly JSON format. It is also a server of the unofficial mobile APP and the website. The TA Public API is provided by it.

When used as a server, it acts as a "compatibility layer" which allows me to update TA-fetching-algorithm without upgrading my app or website. Also, it allows me to fetch data from official TA periodically and send notifications (Using FCM).
