We were inspired by analyzing sentiment in Instagram posts.

What it does

We built a view that allows a user to type in a hashtag, and look at various posts and the sentiment of them. It also grabs the user's information, location, and other information pertaining to the post.

How I built it

We used Javascript to interact with the Instagram api and IBM's Alchemy API in order to analyze the sentiment of the captions of each instagram post.

Challenges I ran into

We had originally wanted to make this in NodeJS, but ran into many complications interacting between server side and client side.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

That we finished.

What I learned

I learned about sentiment analysis and interacting with the Instagram API.

What's next for insightful

I plan to use D3.js in order to show visuals from the data that we pulled.
