My Clothes Tracking System
Melissa McEwen Feb 22, 2019
A couple of years ago I decided to do a spreadsheet inventory of my clothing because my closet had become totally unmanagable. I used Google Sheets originally. Once I made that inventory I decided to start using it to track wears. This helped me get rid of clothing I didn't like. I wrote a post on Reddit and then a Billfold article about it.
I was using Google Sheet's charting and then later Excel for data visualizations but when my coworker Lyzi Diamond created a helpful Chart.js starter/challenge I decided to try it out. I plan to add more charts in the future. In the meantime feel free to click the 🎏Glitch fish up in the top right corner and then click "remix" to make your own. The instructions for making your own and info on how I use Airtable to track clothing to it are in the README.md. The project uses a few different methods for getting and processing data, which hopefully will help you learn some ways to do this.
- Express endpoint that formats data directly from the API- see server.js
- Implementation of Fetch to grab that data on the front end- see public/script.js
- Other charts are just built by objects in script.js
