The internet is a crude place and sometimes you just want to know what you're getting into. Originally I wanted to censor all the political nonsense that I see on Facebook, but instead I decided to gear it towards the Hack Harassment category and have it warn the user about curse words on a page.

What it does

It is a chrome extension that looks at the script of a page and produces an alert as a warning if there is any inappropriate language on the page when you click the button under the extension icon.

How I built it

I built it using basic JavaScript and HTML.

Challenges I ran into

I had a really hard time figuring out how to actually get the extension to read the contents of the page that is intended to be analyzed.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

I powered through and came up with ~something~ in the end.

What I learned

JavaScript and how it works. I have never really worked with it in such detail before.

What's next for Is it Clean?

I think I would like to actually get it to censor the inappropriate language opposed to just giving a warning about it. That would definitely be a fun project to tackle!
