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
