Sales Reciepts

In the First DB App you were able to learn the basics of how to use the IndexedDB database that's built into the browser. In Sales Reciepts you'll take this a step further by creating an app that records point of sales receipts, presumably for subsequent balancing against cash in the stores cash register.

The objective of Sales Receipts is to implement point-of-sale functionality for a merchant and to make a record of all sales in a database.

Requirements & Constraints

  • Developer should implement this app as a frontend application that uses the IndexedDB database in the browser to record all sales receipts.

  • Developer may implement the inventory of items available for sale as an array of objects in the application source. Each item should be defined with the following attributes: - Item number (unique) - Description - Unit price

  • Developer should use her UI/UX skills to create a pleasant and efficient window layout that makes it easy for the user to purchase items and display purchase history.

  • The primary use case for a browser based database is to maintain state or status information that needs to persist across sessions, or as a work area for temporary data. For example, data retrieved from a server that must be reformatted or cleansed before it's presented to the user.

  • It is important to keep in mind that since the client-side browser environment cannot be secured you should not maintain any confidential or personal identifying information (PII) in a browser based database.
