We wanted to make people more socially conscious about the brands they support, and wanted to make it easy and convenient to track
What it does
Our extension make users life easier, to determine if the companies they support are fair in terms of gender. Our extension will ultimately promote social conciseness on what brands to boycott and what brands to support.
How we built it
First, we uploaded all our data found from a data set, about the top 100 companies with their gender equality score, then we exported all our data to a firebase cloud, from there we wrote a code to connect our firebase straight to our extension.
Challenges we ran into
We had a few issues at first getting the firebase cloud to connect.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Everything, proud of successfully getting everything to work and run properly in little time with no errors.
What we learned
We learned how to connect firebase cloud to a chrome extension effectively and efficiently.
What's next for Company Gender Equality Tracker
We hope we can turn our extension into an app, to expand our user range.
