Inspiration

We wanted to create a page that presented all of your school information on one page.

What it does

Our webpage shows your student ID, GPA, meal swipes, munch money, campus cash.

How we built it

We scraped the MyCUinfo, Buff OneCard, and MyCUHub webpages for personal student information via the BeautifulSoup module from Python.

Challenges we ran into

  1. We had to trick the websites into thinking we're a web browser, which was a challenge because we had emulate javascript in python.
  2. The MyCUInfo website went down for maintenance a few hours before we our project was due, so we weren't able to use the information we scraped to present the user their class schedule.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We successfully scraped all of those websites.

What we learned

Scraping is very hard and how to get data from other websites.

What's next for MyCUEverything

We're planning on implementing class schedules, GPA trends, and anything we can find on the three websites listed above.
