The hassle of finding devices and gadgets to buy during daily life.

What it does

Looks through databases of multiple large retailers and compares prices, products, and if the products are in stock.

How we built it

We took the APIs from the retailers like Amazon, Bestbuy, eBay, and Walmart, we used the UPC codes to find the matching product from other stores. We then used a javascript/html interface paired with a Python server to run a GUI and algorithm.

Challenges I ran into

Could not do IO in Javascript, or integrate the Python algorithm with the GUI.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

We were able to finish the algorithm which was the most complicated part, also the coolest in our opinion.

What I learned

That you can transpile, but it is very difficult, also all-nighters do not work.

What's next for Cheapify

Expand to more APIs, revamp interface, and make the entire experience more seamless.
