Thanks a lot!
Indeed, Dan. I will be open-sourcing the project later.
Thank you, Dshaw!
As a parent you'll probably appreciate the features we want to add - things like accounts for parents and private charts for each child you add. Parents will have public threaded conversations and private notes on child charts. If you need, you'll be able to invite other members to share your child chart - useful for working with educators and therapists and other family members. We plan to encourage therapists and professional providers to join as well, and they'll be able to create public threaded conversations called "therapies" or "exercises" that a parent can do to help a child achieve a new skill. Parents will be able to copy these to the private chart as well.
We're not using much Node at this stage, that is true. But we definitely need it's power moving forward with this project. Working out the visualization and testing it (we did testing sessions with about a dozen parents during the competition) took most of our time. We definitely need some UI improvements still, and we're excited to start adding new features.
Again, thank you for your feedback. I appreciate it very much!
I definitely agree! We realized that once we started playing the game a lot more but by then, coding was over.
Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for playing!!
Amusingly, the absolute last thing that we did was the actual "real" processing of the CSS. The bookmarklet, the interface, and the results pages were complete well before it "worked."
The next step for this is actually to turn the entire codebase into something that runs client-side in the browser, in the bookmarklet. :)
