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.

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
What I learned
- CHROME EXTENSIONS!
What's next for WatCard Balance
