I complied ofxCv with ofxNotifications to create an OF application that detects smile and sends notifications. Every time the user smiles, the smilingUser sends notifications on the sidebar with encouraging comments.

Unexperienced with C++ and openFrameworks, my goal was to compile two addons to create a simple and digestible application for myself. After browsing through numerous addons, I found ofxCv to be comprehensible and flexible enough for me to experiment with. I was able to compile ofxCv with several wild addons but had difficulty combining the two to produce a holistic yet interesting application. I discovered ofxNotifications and implemented it to create an interactive application with a very slight spice of delightfulness.
