I used Burt Reynolds just because I thought it was least likely to offend anyone.
Have you looked at something like Sails if you want pure JS?
Once you have this front-end worked out very well it’ll be a lot easier to then do the work of making each page and action actually do something. You’ll then expand expressjs for each page and make it do what you want until you’re done.
So I was talking to some people I work with, developers much better with stuff than myself, and apparently all the data is in JSON, and so now I just have to get the JSON objects to populate the image and text fields, then have them update as people click through them. If there is more than one in a category it’ll show the left and right arrows under the image, and it not it won’t. Not 100% confident I got it, but between that, and the above suggestions, I at least have a place to start.
That’d be easiest if they are doing it in JSON already. You can do your prototype a little easier then by getting a few samples of the JSON data, and setting it as a variable in your HTML prototypes. I’d make a file called “samples.js” or “tests.js”, and load that in the html. That file sets a variable and then you just pretend you are already working with the JSON API live, but prototype your UI.
