Get your necessary tasks done with our website, Paw-ductivity! Increase your productivity and minimize procrastination in order to take care of your virtual pet's mood! Try out our prototype today: https://nancycao.github.io/pawductivity.github.io/!

We aim to solve a problem plaguing many students and adults alike: procrastination. Procrastination delays the completion of important and urgent tasks, wasting valuable time in a person’s life. However, current productivity apps do not motivate the user to actually complete their necessary task.

In order to reduce stress by maximizing productivity while minimizing procrastination, we have created a fun website, Paw-ductivity. With cute graphics and simple interface, the user must complete the tasks they would usually procrastinate in order to take care of their pet’s mood. Using HTML/CSS and Javascript, we implemented a To-Do list where the user will input their tasks with the option to time themselves. Based on whether the users finishes their tasks, the mood of their virtual pet will increase or decrease. In order to make their virtual pet happy, they must successfully check off the tasks they put on the To-Do list, otherwise the pet’s mood will be unhappy and sad.

A technical problem we faced was learning how to integrate open-source code from other websites into our code. We had to learn how the foreign code worked, line by line, in order to incorporate our own features with the foreign code.
