We have designed Green Eggs to be used by everyone, but we anticipate that the app will be mostly used by non-technical users, including parents and grandparents. We have accommodated this market by creating a simple, friendly user interface and have included simple English instructions where appropriate.
Yes, it does! The user manual can be found here.
The name Green Eggs is inspired by the title of the infamous Dr Seuss book, Green Eggs and Ham. We chose this name as it evokes positive feelings, and informs users that our app is simple, friendly and non-threatening, just like the book.
Unlike other apps, Green Eggs is available on iOS and Android, making the platform open to more people. Green Eggs also places a larger emphasis on empowering the user. We let users filter out recipes based on their allergies and dietary requirements. No more searching for hours to find the right recipe for you!
Green Eggs is developed in TypeScript. It has a React Native frontend and NodeJS backend. We use GraphQL as a query language for our API and PostgreSQL for our database. The API is hosted with Heroku and we use an S3 bucket for cloud file storage.
