Website Basics

This page lists the milestone requirements for Milestone 10 of the CC 410 Restaurant Project. Read the requirements carefully and discuss any questions with the instructors or TAs.


The CC 410 Restaurant Project project for this semester is centered around building a point of sale (POS) system for a fictional restaurant named Game Grub, offering food of all kinds to celebrate our love of games of all kinds.

The tenth milestone involves moving into the web by creating a data-driven website to display the menu and some other information about the restaurant.

General Requirements

  • All code must be object-oriented.
    • All executable code must be within a class
      • Python package files such as and are exempt.
    • Classes must be organized into packages based on common usage.
  • All projects must include automation for testing, style checking, and documentation generation.
    • Java: Use Gradle with the application, jacoco, and checkstyle plugins.
    • Python: Use tox configured to use Python 3.10 and a requirements file to install libraries.
  • All code must properly compile and be executable.
    • Java: It must compile and execute using Gradle.
    • Python: It must execute using Python 3.10. Where specified, type hints should be included in the code, and all code should pass a strict Mypy type check.
  • All code submitted must be free of style errors. We will be using the Google Style Guide for each language.
    • Java: Use Checkstyle 10.6.0+ and the Google Style Configuration.
      • You may modify the configuration to allow 4 space indentations instead of 2 space indentations.
    • Python: Use Flake8 with the flake8-docstrings and pep8-naming plugins. Code should conform to PEP 8 style with Google style docstrings.
  • Where specified, code should contain appropriate unit tests that achieve the specified level of code coverage.
    • Java: Use JUnit 5. You may choose to use Hamcrest for assertions.
    • Python: Use pytest. You may choose to use Hamcrest for assertions.
  • Where specified, code should contain appropriate documentation comments following the language’s style guide.
    • In any class that should be documented, every method in that class should have complete documentation comments.
    • Java: Use javadoc to generate documentation.
    • Python: Use pdoc3 to generate documentation.
  • Submissions to Canvas should be tagged GitHub releases that are numbered according to Semantic Versioning.

Assignment Requirements

Web Framework

Add a Web Framework to the existing project.

  • Java - Install the Spring framework using the Spring Initializr. It should include the Spring Boot DevTools, Spring Web, and Thymeleaf Template Engine as dependencies.
  • Python - Install the Flask framework and the Flask-Classful extension. You may also wish to install python-dotenv to use a .flaskenv file.

Java Users - You will need to remove the 'org.junit.jupiter:junit-jupiter-api:5.6.2' entry from the testImplementation section of the dependencies. It conflicts with the version provided by Spring.

Python Users - You may ignore any type errors from flask_classful by adding #type: ignore after the import line.

Web Code
  • Create a new gamegrub.web package.
  • Create a gamegrub.web.MenuController class to act as the controller. It should include the following routes:
    • / - a home page for the application.
    • /about - an about page with the text given at the bottom of the page. You may add additional text and items as desired
    • /menu - a page that includes the entire menu (all predefined combos, entrees, sides, and drinks).
      • It should use the existing Menu class to collect these items.
      • You may add additional methods (with requisite unit tests) to the Menu class as desired to make this work.
  • Update the required files to launch the web application properly as shown in the example video.

Create a base layout file including the following:

  • Valid HTML5 structure
  • A <title> element including the page name, followed by - Game Grub
  • A <body> containing:
    • <nav> that contains links to all pages in the application
    • <main> containing all the content in the page
    • <footer> containing the following copyright notice: “© 2024 Game Grub”
  • It is recommended (but not required) to build upon an existing template. You may wish to review the Bootstrap 4.6 Examples.

Create the following template files to match the routes listed above:

  • index.html contains an <h1> tag with the title “Homepage” and the following text in a paragraph (you may add additional text as desired):

Welcome to Game Grub! Our motto: play fair, eat well!

  • about.html contains an <h1> tag with the title “About Game Grub” and the following text in a paragraph (you may add additional text as desired):

Game Grub was developed as part of the CC 410 course at Kansas State University by <your name here>.

  • menu.html contains the following content:
    • an <h1> containing “Menu”
    • an <h2> for each of the four categories of menu items (entree, side, drink, combo)
    • Each menu item should be placed in a <div> with the class menu-item. It should include:
      • The name of the item
      • The price of the item
      • The calories of the item
      • If the item comes in multiple sizes, the price and calories for each size should be listed somehow!
      • If the item is a combo, you may also include the contents of the combo!
    • You may use additional HTML elements & CSS style to improve the readability of this page as you see fit! As with the GUI project, this is your chance to explore a bit.
      • The model solution uses the Card component and Row Columns in Bootstrap 4.6.
    • Under the “Combo” heading, add a note that any entree, sides, and drink may be combined for a combo discount, and print the current combo discount value as well. (Hint: you’ll have to send this through the controller to the template somehow…)

You can format currency values directly in your templates! See Formatting Currencies in Spring using Thymeleaf for Java or using the familiar Python String.format() function as demonstrated in this StackOverflow comment.

Documentation & Testing
  • All new classes and methods must include full documentation comments.
  • HTML templates do not require documentation, but inline comments are recommended if they are useful.
  • No new unit tests are required.

Time Requirements

Completing this project is estimated to require 2 - 5 hours.


A rough estimate for this milestone would be around 500 lines of new or updated code, the majority of which is HTML. -Russ

Grading Rubric

This assignment will be graded based on the rubric below:

  • Web Framework Installation: 10%
  • Web Code: 30%
    • Index & About Routes: 10%
    • Menu Route: 20%
  • Templates: 60%
    • Layout Template: 20%
    • Index & About Templates: 10%
    • Menu Template: 30%

The following deductions apply:

  • Any portion of the project which will not compile (Java), pass a strict type check (Python), or execute properly will be given a grade of 0.
  • Any portion of the project which does not meet the general requirements listed above will have a commensurate amount of points deducted.
  • Points will be deducted if pages do not contain valid HTML5 with all tags properly closed.

This is not an exhaustive list of possible deductions. The instructors will strive to provide reasonable and fair grading, but we can’t predict all possible defects. It is up to the student to ensure that the project is complete and correct before submission.

Code Review

As part of the grading of all assignments in this course, I will be doing a deep dive into a few classes in your code. This will include leaving detailed comments on code style and format in GitHub. I will usually choose various classes to review at random, and any issues found in that class will be verified in other classes of the same type. For any GUI and Web portions, I’ll also be testing the functionality of the UI for each class under review. - Russ


Submit this assignment by creating a release on GitHub and uploading the release URL to the assignment on Canvas. You should not submit this Codio project or mark it as complete in Codio, in case you need to come back to it and make changes later.
