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
