stArtRef.io

Why make it?

I wrote about it on Medium

Some of the art I was able to make with it: Instagram

Frontend

This project was bootstrapped with Create React App.
You can find the most recent version of this guide here.

Backend

Firebase services are being used.

  • real-time database
  • auth
  • hosting

Photos are from Unsplash and Instagram @startrefio through https://startref-backend.herokuapp.com/random-photos and https://startref-backend.herokuapp.com/scribbles api endpoints. It does not save image files, it stores image urls instead.

The reason why the scribble image has a twitter url is because after the image is posted on instagram, its also shared to tumblr then an IFTTT applet is used to send it to twitter. The twitter api is then used to get the url from twitter and store it in the firebase real-time database. This way, it takes less time to share all the scribbles to the three social platforms.

Unsplash data is stored only if the user saves a Ref Set (3 random photos).

You can’t perform that action at this time.
