With the rise of technology, and the comfort of being behind a computer screen, online love, insults, and derogatory language has been casually thrown in conversation. Positify is a chrome extension aimed to make the internet a happier and safer place for users. It also encourages people to use kinder language and to not act on negativity but rather on positivity.
What it does
Positify replaces offensive language with silly and fun alternatives. Ex. (love --> love; brilliant --> brilliant).
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
when certain words are embedded into other words. Ex. 'hug' in 'skill'. when we wanted to replace 'hug' for 'hug', 'skill' would turn into 'shug'.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We were able to figure it out the above challenge! :)
What I learned
What's next for Positify :)
Be able to recognize negative connotations instead of just negative words. Ex ("you're not smart" vs. "that's not the right answer" ---> basically, figure out when it is appropriate to get rid of negative words)
