Smash GIF

I'm a pretty big fan of the Super Smash Bros series. I love watching gameplay videos and mostly enjoy the most exciting moments. Fortunately, most of them get posted on Reddit which is why I combined them into a website.

I wrote a concurrent scraper using Go's native concurrency features to pull the data from Reddit. Hosted on Google App Engine, I then stored all the data into GAE's Datastore. I then serve requests through go-martini, a lightweight web framework.

The GIFs are served by gfycat.com and tend to have some latency that I had trouble fixing so I left it as is. UI is lightly inspired by Twitch.tv
