I noticed that I spend a lot of time mindlessly scrolling through social medias and other content such as Youtube videos and Twitch streams. In order to add a little bit of spice into everyone's lives, I created this tool in order to generate an idea for someone to occupy themselves with.

What it does

The site is very simple with only a bit of text and a single button labeled "Get Activity". Clicking this button will generate a random task and display it at the bottom of the box.

How we built it

This site was built using React js and is hosted on There are also css files in order to make the site look nice and sleek.

Challenges we ran into

Being very new to React js, I ran into many challenges with using React. I also had difficult with positioning the elements on the screen using css, and hiding the output box until the first press of the button.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

I am proud of successfully using fetch to retrieve the output from the Bored api. I am also proud of the styling of the site.

What we learned

I learned a lot about React and javascript in general, as well as some css skills.

What's next for Bored?

I want to make make use of all of the information provided by the Bored api such as the number of participants and price in order to give the user more information about the activity.
