As soon as Dom announced the “Plant Nanny” title, I started thinking about this book: The plant sitter : Zion, Gene : Free Download, Borrow, and Streaming : Internet Archive , which I loved in my childhood. A boy gets all his neighbors’ plants to take care of while they’re on holiday, and they sort of take over the house.

Not sure I’m doing anything with it, but that’s where my inspiration is, today.

That’s what’s so amazing about this community - thank you all for being so supportive and encouraging (to everyone, not just me!)

I’m pretty excited about my idea for this challenge…it might take a little longer than a weekend to complete though!

And thank you too for all the great help!

No, no, I wasn’t asking you to submit it. The longer you take, the better the output(or so I believe). Take your time with it- I’d love to see it when you’re done!

What I made today:
(You can drag the plants around - please do! Other than that, there’s no current function.)

UPDATED (5/28) - there’s some function but not quite a full game yet. Updated link below.

This is great! The best part is that there are lots of flat surfaces(tables/shelves) to put the plants on. I know you’re still working on it, but an idea: You could try allowing the users to adjust the size of the plants. I added the ‘other’ plant thinking it would look good on the bookshelf, but it turned out too huge and I had to put it beside the sofa. Other than that, it’s great fun moving them around!

@domhnallohanlon I have so many ideas for this WDC! Is more than one submission allowed?

I am so contrary… for the WDC I submit a game, and for the WGC I’m making an app! Is that alright, or should I switch to game mode?
Thanks

Absolutely @codeswept - glad to hear this prompt has given you plenty of inspiration!

Yeah, no problem at all. The prompt is just there so that we’re all working on something similar at the same time. After that, the design, implementation, functionality etc is all up to the individual Thunker

Cool, thanks!
Working on 2 apps right now. Trying to implement some gamification into them.

here’s my (simple) entry to WDC #14
Stretch MARKS - an app for tracking stretching exercises

my physical therapist put together this set of stretching exercises for me to relieve me of the pain i’ve been feeling in the back of my legs apparently caused by sitting in front of the computer for so long because i’ve been working from home, watching netflix, and sometimes working on thunkable apps! (whew!)

I wanted it to be simple so i had already planned on using DVL’s because they handle lists very well in a “nocode” manner. i settled on a running one week’s worth of history (using the day of the week as index) for simplicity and i knew i had to use google sheets because it could handle many of the automatic calculations, including building the URL for making the charts appear in the weekly progress DVL.

here are my screens

you can watch a short movie showing how the app is used.

make a copy of the google sheet i’m using and upload it to your google drive as stretch_db

finally, here’s a link to my project (new link)
https://x.thunkable.com/copy/a266f8eb4449b7f0381a89199e16b00c

unfortunately when a thunkable project using google sheets is shared, the datasources are converted automatically to local storage so it cannot be truly tested. these are the steps that i’ve used to make it workable.

  1. make a copy of my stretch_db sheet and upload to your google drive under the same name.
  2. open the project and while in design mode, edit every screen with a DVL, note down the datasource and table, then clear out the values.
  3. delete the old datasource - then add the new datasource (from google drive)
  4. in design mode, provide the correct values for datasource and table for each screen that uses a DVL
  5. in blocks mode, revisit each screen and redo all datasources-related blocks (purple?) with error indicators until no more errors (ie. by redo, i mean, drag a new version from the templates and replace the old one after copying the required parameters)
  6. good luck

Wonderful entry! I love the weekly progress graphs.

yeah, nice job!

thanks for the kind words!
what i wish to point out is that i’m using a plain Data View List to show that weekly progress - it means all the elements in each row are fields in the data and even the chart itself is encoded as a simple URL.

you can extrapolate … it is possible to show your company’s year-to-date sales and expenses, BY department(!) as long as all the data you need to build the chart can be found in one row!

Sorry I didn’t tell you earlier, but I can’t participate in this WDC because Thunkable shows a white screen on my device. :sob: :sob: :sob: :sob:
