Project approach

We utilized Google Meet for communication, enabling team members to share updates and address concerns. Daily team meetings facilitated synchronization of efforts, goal discussions, and resolution of roadblocks. This iterative approach fostered transparency and prompt decision-making to remain on track and align with project objectives.

Technical solution highlights

The backend of the app is built using Python, Django, and Django Rest Framework, with PostgreSQL and Redis for data storage and caching. Various tools and libraries are used to enhance functionality, and the app is hosted on AWS infrastructure.

The iOS client of the app uses GCD for concurrent task execution, Alamofire for network communication, SnapKit for AutoLayout management, R.swift for testing instances generation, Kingfisher for image downloading and caching, and iOS-Charts for creating charts. Additionally, the app uses Firebase for analytics and crash reporting, Firebase DynamicLinks for deep linking, User Notifications for managing notifications, Sign in with Apple for Apple ID authentication, and In-App Purchase for subscription services.

The Android client of the app uses Kotlin and Java as programming languages, MVVM architecture for structuring the app, and libraries like Retrofit for handling API communication, ViewBinding for easier interaction with views, and Coil for image loading. Other tools used include Timber for logging, RxJava for asynchronous programming, Room for database management, Cicerone for navigation, and MPCharts for creating charts. Additionally, the app incorporates Huawei AGConnect tools for crash analytics, deep linking, user authentication, and in-app purchases.

Collectively, these technologies contribute to a smooth and convenient app experience, enabling users to engage in meditation and breathing practices effortlessly.
