We have gotten inspired from an experience that Bret had when he was working at a grocery store previously, where the inventory was very disorganized and thus he thought at first for an idea of creating an app that stocks all the food from the store and organizes it. We had then altered that idea that he had given up on before and made it where the concept of taking inventory would be the same, however the goal was to make it so that the a user would input whatever food they had on them during the time and return to them recipes with the ingredients that they need to use from those they currently have and what they are missing.
What it does
How I built it
We built our project by dividing two major parts, front end and back end. The front end dealt with Vue.js. For the backend, we used Node.js, express, T-SQL, Postgresql, and Ngrok for port forwarding.
Challenges I ran into
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
What I learned
Every single technology used for this app was a brand new experience. None of us knew how to use a majority of the technologies for this hackathon project. For example, Vue.js was a major thing as none of us really had any experience when it came to frontend work and we had to go into overdrive to understand how to code in the frontend. Other things such as express and axiom were also brand new concepts for us as we didnt know how to make that work/had no grasp of the concept behind those API techniques. Upon the project's completion, we were able to get a grasp of all the technologies and can reference back on this project/app code to improve upon ourselves.
What's next for Krab
We are attempting ways to integrate new technologies that would allow the user to take a photograph of the item that they have in their current possession at that time. That way we can allow the user to have the choice of both photos and inputting the product's name manually.
