The Frugal Flyer is a little side project that I have been working on the past few weeks, specifically to gain a better understanding of Parabola and, hopefully, find myself some great flight deals for future vacations. I started with a great tutorial from Parabola that found one good flight deal to a given city - https://medium.com/parabola-labs/building-a-weekly-travel-newsletter-in-parabola-525d2530ce67 I spent some time tweaking this Parabola flow until it got to it's current iteration, which scans flights departing my hometown to 60 different countries over the upcoming 3 months. It returns all of the quotes, sorts out the best 3 international flights (non-Canada/US) and the best 4 USA deals. The flow then pings a Pexels API for a quality photo of each destination, before sending it out as a newsletter to a list of subscribers in an Airtable base.

Remix this project

What is a remix? When you remix a project on Makerpad, you’re submitting a project that relates to an existing project. You're trying to use the same Tools, copy and edit the functionality in new ways and/or show off what you can do with a similar system. So for example, the community submits a number of projects that are examples of doing specific things without code that you can remix to get started with your own projects. Currently there's no functionality for cloning the existing projects.
