Soap & Glory: Do A Doodle
Social Engagement App
Sole developer, front & back
Note: Designs by another agency.
Users were asked to upload themselves saying 'Do A Doodle' as many times as they can, for a chance to win prizes.
This app made combined all of the major social networks, with Facebook, Twitter and Instagram being used. On Facebook, I created a gallery to show the videos that were scraped from Twitter and Instagram.
Every time a user uploaded a video with the hashtag '#DoADoodle', it could be grabbed and linked to the gallery for viewing.
Using the standard tools such as SASS, jQuery and VideoJS the front-end was built, but the backend was where the real work was. I created a script to search each Twitter and Instagram API for the hashtag. Each element that was found was stored in an AWS RDS instance for quick retrieval on the front end.
