Do you want to take your memes to the next level?

Do you want to impress your friends with picture editing skills you currently do not possess?

Are your tired of all of those cute pictures of you being ruined by your ex's face?

Are you too lazy to open up Snapchat, and yet, you're willing to go through the hassle of downloading it on your computer?


What it does

Enhances your pictures with cute and "searchable" emojis, and sizes them perfectly to Insta specifications.

How we built it

Tools Include:

  • blood
  • sweat
  • tears
  • coffee
  • Redbull(tm)
  • Awful, awful Javascript
  • Flask
  • ...a flask
  • friendship
  • a willingness to succeed by all means necessary
  • the love and support of our mothers
  • SQL

Challenges we ran into

The biggest design challenge we faced was trying to figure out a solution to display emojis. A long, long time ago Gabby wrote a web scraper that scraped 2300+ emojis, and then never touched them again. Obviously, displaying all 2300+ emojis would put a strain on one's browser, thus necessitating the need to search for emojis in some capacity. Our solution is far from perfect, but it works.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Accomplishments Include:

  • not crying (a lot)
  • seeing an idea come to fruition (#AshleyDemos2k17)
  • creating a product that "works"
  • creating a web app that captures the spirit of The Millennials(tm)

What we learned

Gabby: I learned a fair bit of (basic) SQL, and I (re)learned that I really, really do not like web development.

Ashley: I learned that I do not like Soylent.
