Helping other students save up
What it does
Takes a picture, runs it through google's vision api to determine what it is, then runs through google's custom search engine api for deals online, then displays it to users in an instant
How we built it
Built with react-native as the client side that renders the ui, which would invoke api calls when triggered to our backend server, which is built with node.js and express.
Challenges we ran into
Not enough time to ensure accuracy of data displayed to users, which resulted in a few hard coded components we wished we had more time to work on. Not knowing React native and node.js certainly hindered the progress, spent a majority of the time just trying to connect the client side to the server side
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We built something
What we learned
node.js, React native
What's next for YHunt
Expanding the variety or range of products YHunt will be able to provide their price compare service to, and also have the ability to share their biggest 'steal' of the day to other people for gloating purposes.
