We were inspired by one of our family members who recently got food poisoning from a contaminated food product.
What it does
FoodProbe is a search engine for food products/companies that have been issued an official recall. It also has a forum for anyone to make a post about possible food contamination before the official reports are made. Users can choose to receive emails alerting them about recent foods that have been recalled.
How we built it
We built it using vue.js and firebase.
Challenges we ran into
We had to learn Vue.js and firebase for the first time.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of our emailing system, comment system and the search engine. We are proud that we did not give up.
What we learned
We learnt how to use Vue.js and connect firebase to it.
What's next for FoodProbe
We plan to process twitter data for even faster updates on food contamination.
