We have chosen the assignment Master Facility List.

The final product will be a React-based DHIS2 app for browsing facilities. The main feature of the app will be a list of all facilities including the option to filter and search to get specific results in the list. There will also be a map feature where the user can see where the facilities are. The map will have the ability to show one, all or a subset of facilities.

Timeline for Development

Week 42

  • Created our first React app.
  • Created an organization and repository on GitHub.
  • Fetched our first data from the api using fetch().
  • Created a simple layout for the Master Facility List (MFL) with a navigation bar, search option boxes and a result page.
  • Added some styling with css and React Bootstrap.

Week 43

  • Improved navigation bar style
  • Improved overall layout style
  • Added support for string matching of user-input for organizatons to get relevant organizations.
  • Added toggle button for advanced search user inputs.
  • Added routing of navigation bar buttons.

Plans for week 44 and onwards

  • Link search boxes to their respective functions to fetch and print the correct data.
  • Integrate google maps or a similar map function to display the organizations using their coordinates.
  • Evaluate the best method for filtering data, either during fetch()-call, or afterwards using JS (a mix might be required for more advanced searches).
  • Figure out the best way to do paging when there are many results.
  • Add functionality for feedback and user suggestions.
  • Continue development of dynamically updating search fields.
  • Continue adding functionality and link everything together.


The application is primarily based on the React framework. The different visual elements in the app is created as React components, with the help of HTML and CSS.

Additional libraries we use:

  • React Bootstrap
  • Google Maps API
