I always get stuck trying to come up with ideas at hackathons. I needed something to help me come up with new ideas

What it does

Is Meta scrapes Devpost and returns a random submission. After combining a number of different ideas, or after hearing a few other ideas, it is much easier to come up with a good idea.

How I built it

I used python and BeautifulSoup4 to scrape Devpost. This runs on AWS Lambda.

Challenges I ran into

There is no publicly available API for Devpost, thus I had to scrape the site

What's next for Is Meta

Adding more sources of ideas
