Wanted to keep track of all the anime shows I was currently watching and wanted to be able to see and share those anime with friends in Discord
What it does
It is a bot in discord that stores anime data in 2 categories, watching and watch list, for each user so users can keep trach of the shows they are currently watching and what shows they would like to watch in the future. It also returns the information from MyAnimeList for anime in watch list and the latest episode for anime in watching.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We ran into issues in storing data as the web scrapers were in promise and we had to figure out how to return and store data from promises.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Getting the bot to be functional and interactive and being able to get around the web scraper problem. We were also proud at making the bot somewhat user friendly.
What we learned
We learned mostly about promises and how they function.
What's next for Media Assistant
We want to incorporate a functionality where the bot will notify users when a new episode of a saved anime is out.
