Inspiration

To make messaging easier for the average person, and for professions that include a substantial amount of acronyms such as Doctors and Pilots to communicate with co-workers faster especially when time is crucial.

What it does

It allows anyone to create their own custom acronyms so they can save time while messaging others. You can add, search, delete, and overwrite acronyms. Our application has common acronyms out of the box such as "ikr" or "btw", but users can also add additional presets. Currently, there are three presets that can be imported: everyday, medical, and piloting. We also created some fancy features such as text to speech, download, email, and SMS.

How we built it

With Golang as the server-side language and HTML/CSS/JS on the frontend. This was done by creating an API on the server.

Challenges we ran into

Some git issues and plenty of bugs.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

The additional features and pulling off the creation of two frontends, a modern and retro version.

What we learned

Daniel and I learned each other's workflow which boosted efficiency.

What's next for Custom Acronyms Retro

We hope to deploy it just for fun on a basic home server.
