Memes are mainstream. Making them is hard. We wanted to make it easy for anyone to turn themselves, their friends, or any random pictures into memes.
What it does
Using Facebook Messenger, you send a picture. Then you send the meme caption you would like. BOOM! The bot spits out your dank meme.
How we built it
We used the Messenger API, Node.js, Express, and ran it on Heroku. We modified images using Node.js and ImageMagick.
Challenges we ran into
Debugging a deployed product in Messenger is hard. Also, modifying images using Node is tricky and hacky, but we got around it ;).
Accomplishments that we're proud of
What we learned
We love hackathons and Node is really powerful.
What's next for The Dank Memeifier
Making it more aesthetic.
