Inspiration

So we are aiming to start a positive news and media company for kids. Just imagine how does a 10-year-old kid would look at the world if he is seeing news tv channels 24x7 with his family every day. There are riots, pandemic, encounters, suicides and youtube is filled with objectionable content so a question arises do our kids really need to see all this? Yes, they do need to understand the concept of poverty, depression and pandemic but we don't need to bombard them with all the negative news and parents also don't have an option these channels, newspapers and twitter are the only sources for their updates and news.

What it does

So we want to solve this problem, in simple words: We want to build a positive platform for kids to learn new things and see that this world is not bad at all, good things happen every day here. Most kids can hardly read so we have also attached listen to news feature with each article and speed of the audio can also be changed.

How I built it

I built it using web development technologies like : Mongodb, Mongoose, Express.js, Ejs, Node.js, JavaScript, HTML/CSS

Challenges I ran into

Most difficult part was to add listen news feature, it is still compatible only with chrome browser we are trying our best to expand it to other browsers too.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

I am proud of making this website completely mobile compatible and listen news feature, publish and delete article feature.

What I learned

I learnt many things while making this website from MongoDb to speech-synthesis, this project has also helped me in clearing my web dev basics

What's next for Gleetimes

I don't want gleetimes to be just another blogs site so I want to convert it into an application and platform providing positive and knowledgeable content to kids.
