We were inspired by the Interac API, because of how simple it made money requests. We all realized that one thing we struggle with sometimes is splitting the bill, as sometimes restaurants don't accommodate for larger parties.
What it does
Our simple web app allows for you to upload your receipt, and digitally invoice your friends for their meals.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
It's the first hackathon for two of our team members, and it was a fresh experience for us to work on a project in 24 hours. We had little to no experience with full stack development and Google Cloud Platform tools. However, we figured out our way step by step, with help from the mentors and online resources. We managed to integrate a few APIs into this project and tied together the front end and back end designs into a functional web app.
What we learned
How to call Google Cloud APIs How to host a website on Google Cloud Platform How to set up an HTTP request in various languages How to make dynamically interactive web page How to handle front end and back end requests
What's next for shareceipt
We hope to take shareceipt to the next level by filling in all the places in which we did not have enough time to fully explore due to the nature of a hackathon. In the future, we could add mobile support, Facebook & other social media integration to expand our user-base and allow many more users to enjoy a simple way to dine out with friends.
