It was a strangely warm Chicago day when one of our team members was staring at water, he was struck by an idea for a project, and the the water wanted him to call it memeMe. MemeMe is a chrome extension with one goal, to meme-ify the internet.
What it does
MemeMe has multiple features, including:
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
A major challenge was the utilization of the Chrome extension platform, which was new to all of us. We had to do extensive research prior, as well as during, the Hack-a-Thon to create the project. Chrome extensions also proved difficult as we could not set a cursor URL to a resource specified within an extension, which we determined to be a bug on the platform as confirmed by many online reports.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are extremely proud that our extension runs, as it is our first extension and it has so many components. Additionally, the coordiation between the team members was exceptional, everyone worked hard on their tasks to contribute to the final project.
What we learned
What's next for memeMe
It will be available on the Chrome Web Store.
