Need inspiration for my project


After chemistry class yesterday I decided to create a program that can search for elements in the periodic system, and I got it working with the first 20 elements (getting a bit tricky from element 21+, but they will be added) and I can search by atomicnumber, chemical symbol and name, get a full list and get a list only containing the noble gases.

Now I'm wondering if I might be missing some values (properties) in the elements that would be nice/fun to have? or missing a way to search for elements?

Any ideas for improvements? :-)

What a great idea for a project! And nice job coding up a solution.

I noticed that you're loading your data from JSON. What about implementing a feature that allows you to write the results of an inquiry to a JSON file?

Thanks ~James
