Projects

GiftBack - Winner at Holiday Hacks 2020

GiftBack is a Chrome extension that makes giving back easier. You can set a preferred donation percentage or flat upmark and GiftBack will modify all prices on supported online retailers to match your post-donation price. Give back with GiftBack.

The GiftBack Chrome extension was built in JavaScript with CSS injections to modify price. Upon purchasing, your Firebase balance is automatically updated. To donate or change your preferred charity, visit your personalized dashboard, built in Bootstrap, JavaScript, and SASS, to view your donation history. Learn more at our DevPost and landing page.

Redeem

Redeem is a multi-platform tool to help you account for your shipping donations. It upmarks prices on supported retailers based on a formula that calculates the dollar cost of the product's emissions.

The Redeem Chrome extension was built in JavaScript and calculates upmarks behind the scenes, updating them with CSS injections. The mobile application scans pictures of tags and uses the information available to create an emissions best estimate, built in Dash using ML Kit. The dashboard connects them both, allowing you to donate your balance to a charity of choice and track your donations. One account connects all these platforms through Firebase.

Photomosaic Generator

This Python-based web application generates a photomosaic from a user-inputted image using the PIL image processing library. The user is offered choice in the granualarity of the photomosaic and the image database that the smaller images come from.

Full stack integration was made in Flask with a front-end created in HTML/CSS and JavaScript. A Heroku-deployed version (with Heroku's run-time limitations) is available at Photmosaic Generator
