I wanted to find a cool way to use the Clarifai API! Building a chrome extension seemed to be a good, unique take on this idea.

What it does

You upload an image; Clarifai then analyzes, and returns some key features. These features are then populated in an Amazon search.

How I built it

I used a combination of jQuery and AngularJS to make a POST request on the Clarifai API. Then, the app parses the image url, gets the tags, and puts them in an Amazon search.

Challenges I ran into

Everything breaking in the end

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

I didn't have much JavaScript experience coming into Swamphacks. Now, I feel a lot more comfortable using it.

What I learned

Anything is possible if you work hard enough! Also, never get frustrated. The error is usually painfully obvious.

What's next for smartImage

Make it look nicer!
