About the project:

This is a hobby project made using django as the framework, and next.js as the frontend. The project is hosted on a Vercel. The project is made to learn about OCR and how it works with API from OCR space. @saagarbhujel has done all the work on the next.js frontend. His code is on the OCR-front branch. the backend code is on the main branch(django templtes frontend is also there). I didnt originally intend to make API. When I was making the project, I thought it would be cool to make an API for the project(and also the frontend required it). So I made it. I have made the API using django rest framework. The API is hosted on vercel.
