Creating an app to write and categorize texts with a privacy-first approach is a great project idea for someone studying computer science and aiming to build applications using Python and SQL. Here's a high-level overview of how you could approach this project:

  1. Database Design with SQL:

    • Begin by designing the database schema using SQL. You'll need tables for users, texts, categories, groups, and contacts. Define the relationships between these tables.
  2. User Authentication:

    • Implement user authentication to ensure that only authorized users can access and use the app. You can use Python frameworks like Flask or Django for this purpose.
  3. Text Writing and Categorization:

    • Create a feature that allows users to write and categorize texts. Each text should have a category associated with it.
  4. Contact Management:

    • Implement a contact management system where users can create contact categories (family, friends, school, etc.) and add contacts to these categories.
  5. Group Creation:

    • Allow users to create groups and add contacts to these groups. Users should be able to categorize their groups for better organization.
  6. Privacy Controls:

    • Ensure that the app follows privacy-first principles. Implement robust privacy controls, such as end-to-end encryption for texts, permission settings for groups, and user consent for sharing.
  7. Text Sharing:

    • Implement a feature that allows users to share texts within groups or with individual contacts. Make sure that sharing respects the privacy settings and permissions.
  8. User Interface (UI):

    • Design an intuitive and user-friendly interface for the app. You can use Python libraries like Tkinter for desktop applications or web frameworks if you prefer a web-based app.
  9. Testing and Debugging:

    • Thoroughly test the app to ensure that it works correctly, and address any bugs or issues that arise during testing.
  10. Deployment:

    • Deploy your app to a web server or distribute it as a desktop application, depending on your chosen platform.
  11. Documentation and User Support:

    • Provide clear documentation on how to use the app and offer user support for any questions or issues that users may encounter.
  12. Continuous Improvement:

    • Continuously gather user feedback and consider adding new features or improving existing ones to enhance the app's usability and privacy features.

As you work on this project, you'll have the opportunity to apply your Python and SQL skills to real-world application development, which aligns with your goals as a computer science student.
