While doing homework before the hackathon started, it was easy to become distracted for extended periods of time. We came up with the idea as a solution for our procrastination.

What it does

Let Me Finish This Alarm is a Chrome extension that allows a user to enter a desired amount of break time from their current activity, and Smart Break will notify them at a convenient moment of their break time activity (such as when a Youtube video ends).

How I built it

This was built using javascript, the Google Chrome API, and html!

Challenges I ran into

Some challenges that were run into were making use of github as a group, trying to update it with eclipse getting the commits working.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

We were able to start from scratch and learn how to create an entire Chrome Web Extension by the end of the hackathon in languages that we had never used before.

What I learned

How to use .json files and implementing APIs into the code! Also, we learned how to program in html and javascript. Sal Hernandez taught us a lot about branching and other aspects of github.

What's next for LMFT Alarm

Ability to work with page changes, Other applications other than chrome (May need to bring it out of a chrome extension!)
