For all the self-taught geeks out there, here is our content library with most of the learning materials we have produced throughout the years.
It makes sense to start learning by reading and watching videos about fundamentals and how things work.

We are going to be building a minimalist version of the Star Wars Databank with a "Read Later" or "Favorites" list functionality.
Do not clone this repository because we are going to be using a different template.
This is the repository you need to open or clone:
👉 Please follow these steps on how to start a coding project.
💡 Important: Remember to save and upload your code to GitHub by creating a new repository, updating the remote (
git remote set-url origin <your new url>), and uploading the code to your new repository using the
push commands from the git terminal.
favoritesarray in your central store and allow the user to add or remove favorites.
Important: The SWAPI doesn't provide the images, you can use https://starwars-visualguide.com/assets/img/ to get the images easily. The focus of this exercise is to practice fetch, router and context; you can focus on the color theme and simple layout to make it look good.
Important 2: Don't worry if the data you get from the SWAPI doesn't match the data you see in starwars.com.
Use all the information provided by the SWAPI (check the docs and/or the json responses).
Implement a "Read Later" functionality, i.e, a button that allows the user to "save" the item (character, vehicle or planet) into a special list. This list will be shown at the bottom of the home page, it resembles the main list but only shows the "saved" elements.
To ensure that the user can "save" the item, you must implement an action that can be accessible from anywhere within the app.
The following features are not needed for the final solution, but you can develop them if you feel confident enough:
+1Prevent the website from fetching the Startwars API again if refreshed (you can use the localstorage to save the store on the local browser).
+3Implement a search bar with autocomplete for Characters and Planets. When the autocomplete is clicked it should take you to the Character or Planet page.
This and many other projects are built by students as part of the 4Geeks Academy Coding Bootcamp by Alejandro Sanchez and many other contributors. Find out more about our Full Stack Developer Course, and Data Science Bootcamp.
