With emo, your webpage can now express its feelings to you.
Browsing internet is what we now do everyday. Living in the 21st century, we are highly influenced by online information. To have a better image in mind, emo is born.
What it does
emo is a Firefox extension that provides an judgment on each webpage and returns a lively emoji as feedback. emo returns smiling face when the contents of a webpage is very positive, for example. It would also presents a depressed expression if the webpage is sad :( More expressions are corresponded to different webpages. Users can click on the icon of the expression in order to see a larger, clearer webpage's emotion.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud to see our functioning add-on. This small functionality can help people to better see what is coming up. It also adds a bit of fun for users when browsing internet.
What we learned
Firefox, or Chrome, add-ons are supposed to be only a small functionality added to the browser, so it is not intended to have many permissions regarding read/write local files. When developing add-ons or extensions, developers should only consider simple functionality rather than a fully functional program. Also, time management and work division are very important in team projects in order to have projects done on time and with good quality. Oh, also, passion ;)
