Many times I've been cooking and I've messed up somewhere, I couldn't find help instantly, so thats what inspired me for creating this webapp where people can share their experiences and find help instantly. We also added a gamification so that the users dont get bored.
What it does
You can Instantly find help via a video call you will be connected to professional chefs all over the world, with the forum functionality you can contribute to the website by sharing your experiences for which you may earn coins, every week the top contributors may get cool goodies :) , you can also search for various recipes, for each detailed description like calories, weight along with instructions and ingredients will be also displayed so the detailed insight is provided. And if you are bored or stuck on what to prepare, we randomly suggest a dish for you.
How I built it
(Assuming for Mom's Sphagetti) the tech and libraries we used are:
- Random Dish API
- Recipes API
- VidyoConnector API
- Font Awesome Icons
Challenges I ran into
Implementing the leaderboard and the gamification aspects of the website and also the video chat was a bit tricky.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I've never implemented Gamification in any of my projects, this is the most proudest thing and developer can get i.e. making user experience hell lot of fun.
What I learned
How to increase the UserExperience, Important tricks to retain users. How to implement gamification aspects.
