A main driving part of the inspiration was to create a History reading app which would display history in the form of a tree to make it easy for a person to understand his browser history. Apart from this we thought that it would be very convenient if we can create a one stop shop for all my accounts be it Google, Facebook, Twitter or any other, it should be linked to a central point from where I can access all of it easily.
What it does
The application is a Google chrome extrension. It basically displays the chrome history in the form of a tree. Apart from this it helps you access various accounts you have from point itself - gmail, facebook, LinkedIn etc.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We ran into problems of creating a tree structure out of the history api of gooogle chrome.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We were able to successfully divide the work and then create separate UI and a backend modules as small teams within the team.
What we learned
As this was our first Hackathon we learnt a lot including - Generation of practical ideas, Team dynamics, time management.
What's next for Personal Dash for Chrome
Syncing the extension with other APIs like Twitter etc. to get personal notifications. Interfacing the tree UI with the Tree creation algorithm.
