Front End Build, Responsive, Instagram API
This was a really fun one. My incredibly talented friend Piper has been doing a project where she sketches one drawing a day, and instagramming them… she wanted a quick site to show off her progression.
I whipped together a quick static site with an instagram pull of just her photos using her hashtag, and it was a no brainer to use her incredible artwork for the header and footer.
One fun technical detail is to lazy load the next batch of photos when you reach a scroll point on the page… creating the illusion of an infinite screen of art without the heavy load costs.
I think the site has come down thanks to an unupdated instagram API key, but it’s still a good memory.
