Coded prototype on Github: Design Prototype, MarvelApp:


To solve students' problems around –

  1. Not knowing what to cook
  2. Not knowing what groceries to buy at a store
  3. Not discovering new meals to eat
  4. Not having the time to manually create grocery lists based on online recipes
  5. Sharing meals and recipes amongst friends.

What it does

  1. Helps discover meals that can be cooked within a specified budget (eg: $20).
  2. Curates recipes from online sources into a database.
  3. Create a 'meal list' by adding recipes you want to cook.
  4. Each meal list shows approximate prices for the entire meal.
  5. Auto-generate a grocery list that compiles saved recipes and their ingredients.
  6. Allows one-click sharing of recipes with friends.

How we built it

We used a Python Bottle API that communicates with a Firebase distributed database service that returns data to our front-end Ionic interface. End result was a mobile application.

Challenges we ran into

– Scaling down features for the application.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

– Finishing on time – Building an application over 24 hours!! – Fun experience

What's next for Foodie
