All of the team members are part of the science research program at our school. Because of this, we deal with a lot of citations from the scholarly articles we read. There are other citations generators out there, but they are unreliable because they use a process called scraping to obtain the information. Incorrect citations are a real threat.
What it does
Squeeze generates citations for you based on the information you input into the interface. The site then organizes the data into the proper citation. This leads for less errors caused by the generator itself.
How I built it
We used repl.it and the language html.
Challenges I ran into
Our team was not well versed in html before we started and we are also beginner coders.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We were able to code a website using a language we just learned.
What I learned
We learned how to code in html and how citation generators actually function. We also learned about scraping.
What's next for Squeeze: A Citation Generator
We plan to add more formats, such as MLA 8.
