How we built it

This project has been built with a lot of love, consideration to help others with their mental health using:

  • Flask
  • Bootstrap Component
  • Calendar JS
  • Weather API
  • Python
  • HTML/CSS
  • SQLite Database

Challenges we ran into

In our team, there's only one member that knows how to use flask and one other that knows how to use figma. It takes us a while to learn both of those to comprehensively create the website.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We were able to create a functional website with the visual we intended. We are very proud of our product at the end.

What we learned

We learned new technology like flask and figma. We also learned how to implement weather api into our website. By working closely at a team, we can achieve new goals in a short amount of time.
