Most of us, at least once, have used tools like WolframAlpha, integral-calculator.com, derivative-calculator.net, etc. What our team tried to do is to combine and simplify those tools, in a way that anyone could access them anywhere and from any device.
What it does
Newtonify computes mathematical calculation such as integration, factoring, expanding etc. We make use of our own API as the backend to do all the calculation on the server and we've developed several applications to demonstrate it.
How we built it
Backend - Python Django Framework with REST Web app - Angular Mobile app - Ionic
Challenges we ran into
Creating secure REST API responses Rendering the LaTeX to the view
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We've created an easy to use API for all the people who are willing to develop these types of mathematical operations.
Creating web and mobile applications that use the API to prove its ease of use
What we learned
Learned Ionic framework, Django-REST, LaTeX renderring, and Teamwork
What's next for Newtonify
Making the API public by creating API key and registration page.
