Hoya Hacks, Spring 2021
We were inspired to develop a goal-tracker in the wake of the hectic lifestyle that is the current, stay-at-home affair. Being able to feel productive and complete tasks is important both for one's mental health and one's work ethic, and having one on hand that is personalized for you, by you, gives the user the tools they need to feel in control of their life.
What It Does
Goal Stack keeps track of your to-do list by accepting and categorizing tasks by their deadline and duration. Additionally, it stores daily completed tasks for the user, and showcases how well or how infrequently the user's resolutions are completed via percentage on a statistical line graph.
How We Built It
We built Goal Stack using Django Rest API and React.JS for the application. Following that, we used HTML, CSS, and Bootstrap to host the website through the Google Cloud. The tasks are kept in a database using Cockroach DB.
Challenges We Ran Into
Some challenges we ran into involved combining the different aspects of the front-end and back-end into a cohesive whole. Some of the team did not have access to the Google Cloud, and a majority of the group used Django and React.JS for the first time. Nevertheless, we researched the materials and powered through the difficulties and confusion to create the Goal Stack hack.
