refridge

Refridge is a simple Shopping List webapp with one huge feature: it knows when your food is going to expire!

Original Idea

Click here to checkout the blog post

How?

When you add food to your shopping list, you will be able to specify the category and type of food (along with normal shopping-list notes). When you check off items in shopping mode, they are considered 'purchased' at that date (approximately). A database will be developed that contains expiration times if the food is frozen, refrigerated, left out, or cooked.

So what?

Well now you can get features such as:

  • Notifications for certain food types when they are going to expire
  • Recipe suggestions using soon-to-expire ingredients (integration with 3rd party?)
  • Start a new shopping list with already-expired items
  • Shared family shopping lists
  • Know what you need to pick up from the store without having to check the fridge

Setup

  1. $ bower install
  2. Setup Firebase authentication keys for 'Github' or whatever
  3. $ python -m SimpleHTTPServer or whatever way you wish to host
  4. Visit localhost:8000 or whatever in the browser

Roadmap

  • Integration with online DB of food expiration times
  • New custom DB of food expiration times
  • Password-locked lists
  • Shareable lists
  • All features in the so what? section
