One of our teammates, Rome, was cluttered with notebooks for studying, so she wanted one single space where everything she needed was available.
What it does
Brain Clutter has three options for you to try: a calendar (unfinished), a note-taking page, and an ambient meditation app with two different settings.
How we built it
We used Django for the backend development, and Svelte for most of the front-end development. For the meditation page, we made a simple application in Godot which we then embedded into the site.
Challenges we ran into
Most of us had to do a lot of learning new technologies, so that slowed us down. We also needed a way to share our code, so we utilized Git + GitHub to collaborate.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Most of us started with limited knowledge about html and python and through the hackathon learned and used Django and Svelte. Most of us had no idea how to use svelte, so we're proud of learning svelte for front-end development.
What we learned
We learned how to use Svelte for front-end, Django + DRF for backend, how to deploy a website and backend to AWS, and how to embed a Godot application into a website.
What's next for Brain Clutter
- Add tagging system for notes
- Add full calendar page
- Add drawing page
- Add GPT3 integration for auto summarization/detail extraction from notes
- Search feature for notes, drawings, etc...
- Add page which combines drawings, notes, and calendar
