Inspiration

Lack of motivation before final exams. After two quarters of college, nothing much was done because of the lack of a plan.

What it does

It's a mid-term/long-term planner. It has a very interactive user interface. One of the key ideas is that this application allows users to refer to other people's plans with a similar idea so that people can learn from other people's prior experiences with minimal effort.

How I built it

Front-end We used vanilla JavaScript, HTML, and CSS to build the front end of the application. The front-end communicates with the back end through REST API. Back-end The back end was built using express.js, with a database cluster hosted on MongoDB Atlas. The API server was hosted on google cloud platform app engine.

Challenges I ran into

_ Staying awake _ We were relatively inexperienced to web development, and thus we ran into many troubles and expected bugs. Luckily, we were able to solve most of them. Our goal was a little too ambitious, so our app was not fully finished. However, we'll definitely keep working on it, as we still think this idea is great.

What's next for DreamLine

  1. Finish the originally designed features
  2. Utilizing GCP's NLP API to optimize our searching algorithm.
  3. Improve the UI/UX
