Inspiration

A simple tool was needed to track my WatCard usage, and the one provided by the school is both a hassle to access and does not provide much easily interpreted data.

What it does

It is a Chrome extension where you log in with you UW ID and WatCard pin. You can then see your current balance and view how you've been spending your money recently.

How I built it

Coding!

Challenges I ran into

  • Was new to regex parsing
  • Date formatting for high charts
  • Figuring out how to get the data from the school

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

The project!

What I learned
