We wanted to make an app to track eating habits and encourage ourselves to eat healthier

What it does

Users can add fruits from a database to their "Fruit Basket" and then find cool recipes that use these fruits!

How we built it

We use a flask server to run the back-end and have a front-end built with MDL and Flask templating. Edamam provides the food and recipe info APIs

Challenges we ran into

We had to pivot about halfway through from a barcode scanning fridge inventory app to an app for specifically fruit. We solved this challenge fairly well though and managed to finish on time.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Two of our team members were very inexperienced with front-end and learned various front-end web technologies throughout this hackathon

What we learned

Front-end web-dev Flask & Templating

What's next for FruitBasket

FruitBasket stories! Tell your friends exactly what you're eating!
