Duolingo is an app for superficial language learning in the form of small, gamified lessons. For completing lessons, the user receives XP (experience points), which can be used to track the intensity of use.
Furthermore, the consistency of learning is recorded on the basis of a streak, meaning the days of use in succession.
Duolingo's API is not officially supported for third party use, which makes it critical to prevent accidental or intentional exceedance of the API's limits to ensure account safety. This project allows easily setting up a proxy that will cache fresh data from the API every few minutes. It will also hold the user credentials on the server to minimize the risk of leaking critical information or getting banned for spamming requests.
