Hi Friends, I'm pricing out a POC build of a social app using video, messaging, and a few extra features.
Short version: TicTok-like video feed, profiles, uploading, following, messaging, likes, and abuse blocking.
Platform: Web, Responsive design with React, will try to use native React for apps if we move to the next stage.
Backend: Node or Django. Clean API documentation and planning for scale.
Scope for this project: MVP with 2k users; uploading videos, likes, following other users, messaging users, viewing feed (manually curated, not algo driven), SSO w/ major social platforms. Blocking and reporting bad content or users, and blocking functionality to remove users and content.
Out of scope: No filters, no editing videos, no adding music, no native app.
