A hub for all the gifs, searchable by keyword. I know...

Origins

Ethan (@beep) Marcotte's bukk.it is great, but it's hard to search and sometimes a bit slow. And I've always wanted a good tool to search high quality GIFs out there.

Features

  • Search for GIFs by emotion, or any keyword
  • Display animated thumbnails
  • Provide a filtered search
  • Display link to original source (bukk.it, etc)
  • Cache GIFs on S3/CloudFront for speedy display

Societal Benefits

  • Help people spend less time searching for or making animated GIFs.
  • Give people with poor emotional skills the ability to express themselves exclusively with pop culture references.

Flow

  1. Enter GIF URL
  2. Origin URL is saved
  3. Entry can be tagged by emotion or keyword

Models

  1. Gif
  2. Tag (assoc. with Gif via Join table 'gifs_tags')
