During quarantine, it is easy feel like there is lots of time use, and waste a lot on youtube

What it does

Tracks time spent on youtube to raise awareness about the time people waste every day

How I built it

Used TypeScript and Javascript, and integrated it with the Chrome API to turn it into a simple chrome extension

Challenges I ran into

Working with ChromeAPI and a new testing environment was confusing, and we ran into lots of trouble regarding chrome extension permissions

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Adapted to the new development environment and learned to use TypeScript

What I learned

A lot about Javascript, TypeScript and chrome extensions

What's next for Youtube Tracker

Add functionalities and server side code to truly optimize tracking non-work-related videos
