When we were thinking of what to create, my teammates and I noticed something common between us - as students who are often stressed in our engineering/computer science programs, sometimes, it feels nice to take a small break and procrastinate a little. But there are so many social media platforms out there, that we get too distracted and waste more time switching between platforms than actually enjoying the content. This is why we created WAYT ( Waste All Your Time ), so all our social media is displayed on one page and we can decide which content we feel like clicking.
What it does
WAYT is a website that essentially allows you to connect your social media accounts to it - instagram, youtube, and tiktok - and on the next page, you can see all three feeds at once and decide which one appeals to you most at the moment, or just watch all three at once!
How we built it
We built the website using vs code and react. We designed it on figma, and then edited the code to tailor it to our liking.
Challenges we ran into
A challenge we ran into was that the Figma code was not transferring the correct dimensions on VS. To fix this, we tried altering the dimensions on figma itself, and later on vs code to try and fix it, and we worked together as a team to make the website look how we wanted it to.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of the fact that our website works, and is useful for us and other students.
What we learned
We learned overall that patience is key to make sure everything gets done to our liking.
What's next for WAYT
The next for WAYT is to add more social media to it.
