Cactus Study

Desert-themed flashcard webapp -- HackBeanpot Top 10




Cactus Study is a standard flashcard studying webapp, supporting card and deck creation. While studying, you grow a cactus that you can theoretically collect into a cacti garden.

This project was built for HackBeanpot 2023, where we achieved Top 10. I took part in this hackathon with Henry, Ezgi, Nathaniel, and Lizzo. Here are the relevant links:

I was primarily involved in writing the frontend functionality with React and Chakra UI, responsible for the distinguishing feature of growing the cactus. I also implemented pages such as card creation. We used Python and FastAPI for the backend.
