We wanted a way to promote a healthy diet and lifestyle during these trying times and we thought a great way to start that was to cook your own food instead of having take out.
What it does
It's tinder but for recipes; you either like a recipe and we save it for you or you pass on it and we will remember to exclude it next time
How we built it
We used Googles Firebase to hold our user data such as the recipes they've liked and the ones they've passed on, as well as a recipe API to obtain recipes from, and we used Java on Android Studio for the front end
Challenges we ran into
Learning development on Android using Java for the first time for the majority of our group members along with implementing best practices for android such as MVVM and using the most optimal method for the problem was difficult to digest at the start.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Having a working project, learning and implementing MVVM architectural pattern, trying out best.
What we learned
We learned how to use information from an API and present it on an application for consumers. It was a good learning experience working with firebase and experimenting with what android studio has to offer.
What's next for Chef Swipe
Since the API we use limits the number of calls we may perform, we hope to invest in a plan that would allow for more usage. We were not able to create tags that would filter through what recipes would appear on the application for each specific profile and we hope to implement that in the future.
