The People’s Table

Open-source Sinatra app for Man Bartlett’s The People’s Table. Go here for a blog post about it by the Brooklyn Museum.

Operation

  • Clockwork-based job checks Twitter and Instagram for new images using a specific hashtag/tag, putting those into a MongoDB database.
  • A jQuery front-end builds a pile of images based on all found so far, then checks once per minute for any new images to add to the table.
