What it does

Guess the Tags is a web-based guessing game developed for Cal Poly's Hackpoly 2016. It implements both Clarifai and Imgur's APIs in a simple yet amusing way that has players thinking on their feet!

How we built it

We used python with Flask to build all of out backend, and we used html, css, and bootstrap for out frontend.

Challenges we ran into

We ran into some beginner problems with how to setup a specific API and getting the database correctly setup, and how we can some of the frontend design like manipulating an image to only display part of it.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We are very proud of our ability to make a web app of this level because we all are still very new to web development and dealing with API's.

What we learned

We learned so much, for example dealing with API's, dynamically updating information on a website, and creating a backend for the rest of the application to get information from.

What's next for Guess The Tag

We plan on polishing it up so it is more playable, implementing a high score system in the frontend, and maybe multiplayer in the future!
