It doesn’t have to be on your phone

After completing the django girls workshop — I still want to do the part with authentication — I’ve been looking for a ‘minor’ project to code as a web app. (That’s in quotes, because I think they all grow.)

I’d thought about a beer calculator — for brewing, how much grain to how much water, that sort of thing — but there are plenty of good ones out there.

And then I realized, in my lifetime (not that long!) we’ve gone from assuming things will be websites (“Ha, you could call it ‘’!“) to assuming they’ll be apps (“That’d be a great app!“) But that’s probably because we read more about apps.

I’d had the idea for the Fantasy Pilgrimage for a while. Of course I imagined it as an app — after all, I think like many other people — but there was nothing to say that it would have to be.

Here’s the idea (of course, read the page on Fantasy Pilgrimage). But, it seems like a rough draft of the site would be a success if it could do a few basic things:

  1. Use the Google authentication service
  2. Connect to Google Fit to get fitness data.
  3. Calculate total distance traveled since a given date, towards a total.
  4. Display that as a percentage.

Of course, with time, I’d like to use Google Maps and display the progress. But, hey, first thiings first.
