I didn't have a specific inspiration but I did want to make something just fun and not too serious to share with other people.
What it does
This is a fun holiday themed greeting app powered by A.I. This application uses A.I to generate a unique greeting card based on the starting sentence you choose.
Once you have a unique greeting record yourself reading the card for your significant other/parent/arch nemesis using the loom integration in the app. This video can then be shared with your aforementioned ~arch nemesis~ friend/work colleague!
How we built it
I built this application with python and flask for the web application, Htmx for creating a SPA-like application. I integrated deep.ai for the text generation of the greeting cards and Loom's recording and embed sdk for screen recording.
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
I am proud of getting the flask app running with the loom sdk imported from node modules and the integration of deep ai.
What we learned
I learned a couple of things building this website:
- Adding css animations to a flask app
- Using npm packages and webpack with flask
- Working with Loom's embed and record sdk
What's next for NonHumanFun
- Additional holiday greetings
- Additional greetings for other occasions
- Saving the loom videos to share both the video and greeting
- Using a library like itty.bitty to share the greeting card in a url
