I am trying to make a plugin that will:
- add sounds to a gif
- present a gif as a ‘movie’ starting and stopping on a click.
I do not really know what I am doing. I have seen a few plugins that ‘freeze’ a gif until clicked, they seem to generate a jpg from the the gif. The approach here is different:
- A shortcode [gifmovie gif=’gif-url’ mp3=’mp3-url’]eg:
[gifmovie gif='http://38.media.tumblr.com/5704f412385f040cb6c7e232519867c7/tumblr_npstce4Hpp1rggurro1_500.gif' mp3='http://freesound.org/data/previews/157/157873_2836235-lq.mp3']
- The short code adds the gif with a class of gifmovie and an attribute of mp3

This is a experiment with mixing a couple of APIs the Giphy one and the freesound api. I used neocities to host the page for free to try that site out.

The offshoot of ds106 that is #giffight has given me a lot of fun. Every so often the giffight tumble posts an image with the invite for anyone to use it to create an animated gif from.
After much testing and playing around I’ve managed to get to a place where I’ve got a webpage that makes Don Zen Gifs that you can add an image as a background, or generate some random stuff as a background and get a gif. The interface is a bit rough at the moment. Don’s Gif Zen
Social Media is this is a wee bit of fun using Google autocomplete to explain different social media applications.

pechaGif Clicking Start will start a slideshow of 20 gifs, that will last 20 seconds(or your selection) each. The gifs will be a random selection from the ‘DS106 Random Gif API’, the challenge would be to improvise a
incoherent presentation from gifs you have never seen. Escape will get you out of fullscreen, reloading the page will give a new set of gifs.
pechaGif is inspired by the pechaflickr by Alan Levine @cogdog.
pechaGif has a lot less under the hood than pechaflickr, there are
no options only 2 options!
I cannot imagine that anyone would be crazy enough to use this, but some folk have. The main purpose is to give an example for the equally useless DS106 Random Gif API.
DS106 Gif TV is a weird way of looking at gifs created by some of the DS106 participants while listening to DS106 Radio.
It used the DS106 Gif API a bit of silliness that I am playing with: Gif Scraping and a DS106 Gif API
