you can upload a file in order to find information about the food
restaurants information according to image file that you have uploaded
you can also search by name
We wanted to help people to find food information (restaurant, nutrition, news, recipes) with name or photo of food
What it does
Basically, people can search food information with name, photo of food and location. The information includes nutrition, restaurants, news, recipes, videos.
How we built it
We use many apis to get food information. We used yelp api to get restaurant information and youtube api to get video information. Also, we used food2fork api to get recipes. To allow people to search with image file, we used IBM watson's visual recognition.
Challenges we ran into
request and get api data. get file from user and request to watson api <- didnt work. we wanted to use mobile camera for recognition of the food image but react.js doesn't provide the function. UI design. Since we have no designers it was hard to come up with "good" design.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
efficient use of various api calls fully responsive design (support mobile devices, tablets and browsers) intuitive design
What we learned
What's next for Food Wikipedia
We'd like to add mobile camera recognition as well as nutrition section that gives you numerous information about the food.
