Thesaurize bot on Reddit.
What it does
It's an addictive quiz game that aims to frustrate. think flappy bird, but quiz game
How we built it
VueJS on the frontend, REST API implemented in flask on the backend. We ran word definitions through the thesaurus multiple times to obfuscate it's original meaning.
Challenges we ran into
Long definition generation time due to requiring many API requests. We mitigated the issue by prefetching the results beforehand to create an offline thesaurus.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We have a working prototype.
What we learned
Prefetch data using an external VPS instead of onsite WiFi.
What's next for HUH?
Multiplayer using websockets. Time limit for responses.
