Last week I followed a conversation between two of my friends on twitter. It went something like this…
- Greg: Hey, I like those Instaparks twitter feeds you made. Is there any way to look at the photos without all the annoying clicking?
- Henry: Nope. Want to help me make one?
- Greg: eh… You should see if Rustin can make one.
- Henry: Will do.
(So I changed it a bit… but the idea is the same. The actual tweets are here.)
I chatted with Henry a few days later and it sounded fun, so that night I made this: Instaparks.com
The whole thing took about an hour to make. I actually spent more time setting up a server to deploy it than I did building the app itself. That speedy turn around is completely thanks to the great work Henry did setting up the feeds. He’s doing all the hard work pulling the pics that get posted to Instagram from inside the Disney parks. I just made a little app that finds the image links out of those tweets and arranges them on a page that you can zooooomify.
I hope you dig it.
