Inspiration for this project is to provide a visual learning platform that provides information related to various ages and to help people generate interest in ancient history.
What it does
Timage provides information about far-reaching ages in form of timelines related to and also about Mesozoic Era.
How we built it
We built this project with the most widely used framework ReactJS and integrated it with the help of MongoDB ,Nodejs , Twillio API.
Challenges we ran into
Initially, we were having trouble finding data for various ages. Later we were able to solve it by web scraping using python's most used library for scraping namely Beautiful Soup.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
- Able to complete the project in such a short time.
- Faced many problems in the initial stage but were able to see through them which resulted in the completion of project. -We were able to deploy frontend and backed succesfully
- We have create some API's which can be used to get dinoIfo,send twillio what'sapp messages, and prehistoric timeline information
What we learned
- We learned the art of data scraping.
- For most of the team members this was the first hackathon, so we learned to do projects in the group by overcoming all the challenges.
- This hackathon helped us think out of the box.
- Learnt teamwork qualities by coordinating with people to accomplish a task.
What's next for Timage
- To implement functionality that allows users to add data to the website.
- To add animations about pre-historic ages.
- To add some games related to the theme for fun activities.
- To implement a random facts page.
