We grocery shop all the time and end up throwing out a lot of food.

What it does

It keeps track of what is in your fridge with expiry dates. It helps you meal plan with recipes for soon to be expired food

How we built it

Using a JS alexa skill and integrating DynamoDB for persistant storage. We use Cognito to feed data into our native iOS front-end We utilize spoonacular for recipes Send large amounts of data to the Alexa Companion app that is too much for Alexa to say

Challenges we ran into

Integration issues with spoonacular. Ramp up on AWS components including IAM functionality

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We got it all working with integration into multiple aspects of AWS

What we learned

All about Alexa and the issues that arise with a Voice User Interface

What's next for My Fridge

More features! Better recipe integration and auto-ordering from Amazon.
