As a group of college students, we were inspired to create this project based on our own desire to cut down delivery fees from apps such as Postmates and Uber Eats. Often, we are unwilling to order food because we are driven away by these high prices, and we believe that Meal Plan would help save us a significant amount of money.
What it does
Meal Plan is a website that matches the user to people nearby who are also planning on ordering food from the same restaurant within a given timespan so the delivery fee can be split among the greatest number of people.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We ran into a few challenges while connecting the frontend to the backend, especially with the use of the Google App Engine. We were also constrained a bit by the features given to us in WixCode. We wanted to directly deal with JSON outputs to integrate with the Wix dataset functionality, but this was not possible due to WixCode limitations.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We made the website so that different users can access the same data and interact with each other. We are also proud of the overall idea for the project, as this is something that we would love to have in our lives.
What we learned
What's next for Meal Plan
Next, we want to make Meal Plan a mobile app s it can be more accessible for all of our users.
