Pinterest has gained lots of attention lately and became popular in the photographer’s and designers community from the very beginning. And once something is popular, people copy (and sometime with improvement) their beautiful user interface ideas into their own project. Last week i’ve seen quite a traction when friendsheet was released. They allow you to browse photos from your Facebook news feed in a nice and organized way.
When we saw friendsheet last week – me and Rifat were discussing that it could be a nice demonstration if we develop a image gallery with our revolutionary project LightBulb (seriously, someday something’s gonna change the world – so keep dreaming big).
LightBulb is an extensive wrapper of Facebook Open Graph objects sitting on top of their JS SDK. You can interact unbelievably easily with graph objects using a wrapper like LightBulb without worrying too much about underlying technology and the core API itself. LightBulb is stable, easy to use, there are already lots of examples within it. Hasn’t been officially released yet but we are planning to do so in a week or two. Stay in touch.
So back to the point, our main intention was to show LightBulb’s capability of pulling FB graph objects and show them in a nice way like FriendSheet. The final output looks similar to that of Pinterest/Friendsheet and guess what, for only 10-15 lines of JS :) with another couple of lines added in the stylesheet block.
Demo: http://demo.projectlightbulb.net – For download link of source code, keep reading :) . If you dont see the gallery (or sometime see a little overlapping sometime) please refresh and it will work like a charm. It’s fully compatible and responsive with your mobile device.
If you want to outsource your Facebook application development to us, feel free to contact us here. Why? Because we know Facebook app development and their open graph objects inside out :)
