Story behind

I am an introverted person and like to spend most of my time inside the house. Because of this reason I like to find solutions to my problems from home i.e online. Normally I can buy things, and find/hire freelancing remote work online. What if I need to repair something in my house? If a light bulb breaks or if I need to paint the house then I just need to roam around and find suitable workers which are really boring.

This is where physicalli comes to save the day of people like me and others. It is a platform dedicated to posting and finding physical jobs. You can post the job and find a suitable professional from your local neighborhood. You can search for the jobs available in your neighborhood.

Introduction to physicalli


Physicalli is a platform to post physically presence demanding jobs like painting, plumbing, electric repairing, etc. You can post your job and get contacted by a technician from your city. You can also search for workers according to your location. Users can just create accounts and find suitable work available near them or post their works. It is just a beautiful platform to make your physical labor easier by connecting workers and works available near them.

Technologies used

I have made this app with the help of AWS amplify and reactjs. Here is the list of tech stacks that are used to build this platform.

  • Reactjs - For frontend
  • tailwindcss - For designing the user interface
  • AWS Amplify - For backend and hosting
  • AWS S3 - For image storage
  • Google maps API - For location autocomplete while posting and searching job
  • Graphql with help of amplify - For querying database

How does it work?

To use physicalli you need to signup for an account. You can create an account to email and verify it. After that, you can navigate to your respective places and do your work.

Schema for graphql I used amplify to create the schema. Visual editor of amplify made it easier to define schema for physicalli.

type Jobpost @model
@auth(rules: [
    { allow: owner },
    { allow: public, operations: [read] },
    { allow: private, operations: [read] }

  • Click on Post job to post your work on the app

Challenges faced during development

I was completely new to aws amplify. I had to learn a great deal about what it is and how to use it. I found so many errors during development and couldn't find reliable resources.


Amplify is used to host applications. After completing I ran the command amplify publish which hosted my application and provided live URL. If we made changes to our project code on the local machine then we can enter the same command (amplify publish) on the terminal at the root directory of the project which will reflect changes to the live URL.

Future improvements

I have some future improvement plans which I was unable to complete due to lack of time. Here are some of the features which I will add soon.

  • Fetch the location with help of a map.
  • Feature of saving jobs for future reference
  • Search for freelancers according to location
  • Using machine learning to suggest jobs
  • Real-time chat between client and worker

My final thoughts

This hackathon has been a great learning opportunity. I was able to create a platform that could solve a problem that many people might be facing regarding physical or local job postings and searching. I learned various AWS services such as S3, Amplify, Cognito, and Dynamodb, Google maps. Thank you Hashnode and amplify for organizing such an amazon hackathon.
