We wanted to do something that was equal parts risk-taking and creative with the Wegman's API, and out of this motive came the idea for a combination fitness and shopping application. As lifelong fans of Wegman's we were excited to take on this challenge.
What it does
WWWOWWW will plot your path through Wegman's on Sheridan in Amherst in one of two ways:
- Plot the shortest path to take through the store to retrieve all of your items as quickly as possible
- Plot the least optimal path through the store connecting all of your items so that you can burn off the calories before you've even purchased them.
How we built it
WWWOWWW is principally built using Node.js, Express, and Python 3. The pathfinding system is built entirely in Python, while the frontend is all HTML/CSS/JS.
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Building a graph reduction system to guide our pathfinding algorithm.
What we learned
Agile development processes, full-stack development, professional team communication, and NodeJS
What's next for Wegman's Wild Workout on the World Wide Web
Adding more supported stores, a feature to incorporate lunges to your workout, and displaying the meals that can be made with the ingredients on the list which have a caloric intake less than you burned purchasing them.
