Our inspiration came from a need for some laughs in unprecedented times like these. Memes have always been there to make us smile, and so just like how wikipedia organizes the history of more formal items, memopedia does the same for memes! Our product is for families to learn and to laugh at the same time!
What it does
When you click our link (https://meme-o-pedia.glitch.me/), you are immediately shown the timeline of memes, dating all the way back to 1920! The 12 most iconic memes are shown through images and gifs. We even created a web app to go with the last one, called the fairy comment generator, but more on that later. The fun part of our page is the memeify button, which essentially transforms our page into its own meme, equipped with fun fonts, colors, and backgrounds! The fairy generator page is based off of a popular tiktok trend, and is sure to make anyone laugh with its sarcastic, but still lighthearted remarks! Finally, the playlist page features a personalized quiz to gauge what era of “meme-music” each user would enjoy the most!
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are very proud of the end result, because we believe we focused a lot on design and ensuring the user has a great experience! Designed for laughs and positivity, we are elated that all the buttons, generators, and quizzes worked out as planned!
What we learned
Throughout this entire project, our team has not only learned the history behind each iconic image/video, but also have pushed ourselves in regards to our coding skills. The fairy comment generator was one of the more challenging aspects of the website which required a sophisticated back-end framework. And building this framework taught us about how dynamic websites can transform with substantial JS.
