Marks App

A hybrid app offering students a more streamlined experience viewing their grades.

Published on January 2, 2018

In grade 11 I wrote a simple hybrid app that allowed students to view their grades and related information from their mobile devices. The student information system used by our school was poorly optimized for mobile. I thought it would be handy to write a tool that scraped the information on behalf of the student and package it into something more appropriate.

The app was well received by my close friends but certainly had a few drawbacks. Due to the nature of hybrid apps (UI composed of HTML and CSS), it did not look natural on the device. Thankfully all the core logic was still in .NET rather than JavaScript. If I were to rewrite this again years later I would take a similar approach to what I did with the Beaverbrook app with a native implementation on each platform.
