The tech story behind the app and tools
So what am i trying to accomplish is building a online price book you can use for your grocery shopping If you don't know what a Price Book is I suggest you read Wikipedia Definition and Melanie Pinola's blog article on How to Save the Most Money on Your Grocery Budget with a Price Book
Below I have a flow-chart (built with draw.io) that shows you what a grocery price booker has to do.
The Yellow blocks are what all shoppers have to do while the Red blocks show what price bookers do in addition. These very Red blocks make keeping a price book a serious discipline. So basically the goal of the WIP my-grocery-price-book is to make keeping a price book less labour intensive and hopefully using crowd sourcing to make it ever easier to maintain and start a grocery price book.
Hopefully this has set the stage…
