With everyone looking for a new simple way to track calories, using your purchases and Capital One's API and Wolfram Alpha's API one can see how many calories a month on average you are consuming.
What it does
Taking purchases and looking at the descriptions based on Merchant and Purchase data from Capital one, it finds the food item and asks the amount of calories in Wolfram. After this, it sums up all of the food items in that month and will output the average over 30 days.
How I built it
I used jQuery and used my other coding knowledge to attempt to piece the program together with help from online.
Challenges I ran into
Capital One's API went down for awhile so I had to code around that until it was back up. I also had issues with trying to graph the data to make it more user friendly
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
What I learned
What's next for Calorie Tracker
Hopefully I can get the graph to accurately depict the data.
