Within a week, we developed a dashboard application in React (Grommet) that receives real-time data from a node.js backend (hapi.js). Since Sumup does not provide an API to retrieve a daily balance, we synchronized the successful individual transactions of merchants against a MongoDB Atlas cluster and calculated the current donation status live. Deploying on now.sh and Netlify was a breeze thanks to the API-centric backend and the static dashboard SPA.
In one afternoon, the initiative managed to raise more than 15,000 euros. We are happy to be able to make a small contribution to making the lives of people who haven’t had as much luck as we have a little bit better.
