Due to the shelter in place, there have been many people that have to stay at home by themselves. I wanted to make a website for those people feeling down letting them know that we will get through this. People that live by themselves might feel lonely and alone. This website shows them that they are others doing the same thing as them. I wanted to make a place that can spread positivity for those who are going through a rough time.
What it does
This website contains a slideshow of messages from people stuck at home bringing positivity into this pandemic. It also includes a link so others can put their messages on the website.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
One challenge I ran into was working on Repl.it. In the beginning, I was confused because I did not know how to start making this website on Repl.it. Another challenge I went through was choosing a topic for this hackathon. I could not think of anything for a while until I was talking to the people around me asking them how they are and how they are feeling.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I am proud to have made a website on Repl.it. I am also proud that I made a slideshow that works the second you go on the website.
What I learned
I learned how to make a slideshow that works right away instead of having to click something to start it. I also learned how to make a website on Repl.it.
What's next for Feeling Down?
I hope that this website can help cheer others up and bring them the positivity that they need.
