After getting lost in a city while being part of a larger group, we thought that it would be convenient to be able to track everyone's location even after we split up. This would better facilitate meeting back together, especially when a meeting place is ill-defined or nonexistent.
What it does
Members of a group can join a virtual room on the server. The room keeps track of the locations of the members and relays this information to each user. Users are labeled by display names.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
SQL is hard Posting to the server via ajax is hard Configuring flask to run on https instead of http is a little complex
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Everything we've set out to do so far has worked (after being debugged) We have a finished product (as opposed to last year)
What we learned
What's next for Rendezvous
There are many possible functionalities that can be added to this project, such as room security. Some of the code can be made more efficient as well.
