All the members in our group write to-do lists everyday to keep track of all the nuances of everyday life. These to-do lists often make us feel unaccomplished at the end of the day because we don't finish all the tasks we listed out. Our to do lists makes you think about the high importance tasks that you need to get done. Making you more focused and satisfied after each task is complete.
What it does
Our to-do list has a drop down menu to categorize tasks based on what they are for (school, work, etc). The main difference between our to-do lists and traditional lists is the limited spaces for tasks. Before you begin to write out the tasks, you need to evaluate what the top priorities for the day are and create the number of tabs necessary. When you add a tab, the previous information deletes itself, so you must evaluate your goals for the day before adding information to the list.
How we built it
We used Chrome extension to create the to-do list so it could be visible when you're on the web browser.
Challenges we ran into
One of the main challenges we ran into was determining the syntax that Chrome extension uses since none of us had previous experience with Java, css or HTML.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We were proud that we were able to create a project on a language we were completely new to. We were also proud that we were able to add new tabs for more tasks.
What we learned
- We learned the basics of Java, css and HTML.
- We also learned how to create a project from scratch with no guidelines or clear instructions
What's next for To-do List
- Create interactive experience with checkmark, x's and custom symbols
- Make custom backgrounds and designs for users to personalize their to-do list
