Inspiration

This project was inspired by our love of cooking but limited budget. One time Zoee wanted to make curry, and ended up buying a lot more ingredients and spending a lot more money than she had hoped. Let's Git This Bread helps prevent the curry problem!

What it does

It's a webapp that allows a user to enter three ingredients and a budget, and then selects a recommended recipe based on those criteria.

How I built it

We used HTML/CSS for the front end, and then used Python on the backend using flask.

Challenges I ran into

We ran into a few challenges with building this app. We had a bit of trouble setting up the architecture to be access publicly, and using HTML forms within Flask.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

I am proud of the way the architecture is set up and of course how beautiful the website looks.

What I learned

I learned a little bit of PHP! I also learned a lot about setting up a Flask app and how to set up the architecture and integrate different pieces of code together.

What's next for Let's Git This Bread

If we had more time, we would add a fully functioning database to our app. Instead of hard-coding the values into our python, we would build a database that would be able to scrape the web to look for lots of different types of recipes and ingredients.
