Melbourne Fringe Festival – Unofficial Offline Guide

Melbourne Fringe Festival Unofficial Offline Guide
http://thewheatfield.org/mff/

A couple of weeks back it was time for the Melbourne Fringe Festival again and I was keen to see some shows and there was a heck of a lot of events to go to that it was pretty overwhelming to search through and I had issues with actually looking for events. Thought it would be a good time to learn some Python and use Zurb Foundation.

Problems I faced when using the Melbourne Fringe Festival website

  • A lot of data 300+ events and with max items per page, there was still 9 pages
  • Searching relied too much of going to the event detail page, and having over 300 events, this would be very time consuming
  • Had to go to event detail page to view:
    • description of event (had to view page in order to find what the event is about: title and subtitle was not enough information)
    • dates
    • prices
    • venue
  • Couldn’t search by budget

Features of the Unofficial Offline Guide

  • Viewing all events on 1 page
  • Show all necessary info on list page (event description, dates, prices, venue)
  • Search by date, category, venue, cost
  • Offline access
  • Should work with lower end phones (pauses between searches)Image
