Every GIF is a gift.

How it works


  • write tests
  • port to Go modules
  • allow text message-passed parameters like number of frames, delay, and number of faces to detect
  • put it on an AWS Lambda to make it more scalable, then release the twilio number into the wild
  • add the possibility of rate limiting by using redis to store which gifs were made by which phone numbers, whitelist my own number
  • clean up this code, it was my first Go project so the code is pretty sloppy
  • less manual deployment and check in nginx + supervisor conf in this repo
You can’t perform that action at this time.
