Inspiration

We couldn't think of an idea. Then we thought about how that's the most important part of any project, coming up with an idea. So, we came up with a way to help people come up with ideas.

What it does

It pulls a bunch of random words and their definitions off Dictionary.com, then concatenates the words and their definitions such that it creates a syntactically correct new definition that the user can pull inspiration from.

How I built it

Python has fast and powerful word processing, and beautiful-soup allowed us to web crawl through Dictionary.com

Challenges I ran into

Webcrawling, figuring out the logic to concatenate definitions.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Concatenating definitions

What I learned

Python word processing, web crawling, linguistic tricks and rules

What's next for InspirationGenerator

Utilizing advance databases and machine learning to create data structures specific to linguistic choices, giving a user more power. Porting to mobile development for inspiration on the go.
