At my college (Gonville and Caius) we have to book meals in advance if we would like to dine at the college. The old meal booking website looks as if was made quite a while ago and I noticed that a lot of students (myself included) felt that it could be greatly improved. So I created an improved version (which can be seen here) over the long vacation that is more fitting of our esteemed college.
However, it seems uncertain whether the college will actually use it, so in the meantime I converted it into Salt: a browser extension that everyone can benefit from immediately, for free! It works on Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge.
We all know Caius' current meal booking website leaves a lot to be desired.
Well, fear not!
No longer shall booking a meal be such a tasteless experience.
Salt drastically improves the UI, making information more readable, accessible and mobile-friendly.
It also adds several quality-of-life features (many student-requested) such as:
Note: if you're logged into a Google Account or Chrome Profile with your @cam.ac.uk email address, the university doesn't let you use extensions. To use Salt you'll have to sign out of both your Google Account and Chrome Profile to install it, then you can sign back into your Google Account.
Note: Salt was designed with students' experience in mind so it may be a little off for staff (they are very welcome to give feedback so I can improve it for them!)
