We have developed a cloud-based mobile web application to match users who request similar trips and would like to share a cab. The application is hosted on Amazon’s EC2 service and combines several open-source frameworks (Django, PostgresQL, Redis, Node.js) with social networking (Facebook), mapping, and location-awareness (Google) APIs. The modularity of our design allows the service to easily scale in the cloud as the user base grows.
(The application is now offline, sorry.)
The code is provided with no documentation or support.
