Re: Noops Week One: Hex Codes Everywhere discussion

I've been meaning to learn Go, so I wrote a program that does the following:

  • Spawns X number of goroutines
  • Each goroutines will call the HexBot api, deserialize the result, and pass it back to the controlling thread on a channel.
  • API requests are rate-limited through another channel. Only 20 requests per second allowed. Otherwise HexBot gets mad and gives you a 403 :)
  • Main thread spawns an OpenGL window and plots the returned hex codes randomly on the screen, creating a colorful TV static look.

Made this Xbox Live avatar re-generator: https://github.com/dend/hexbot/tree/master/src

 

It takes the most frequent colors from the image, and replaces them with random colors from the Noop API.

Re: Noops Week One: Hex Codes Everywhere discussion

Hey Guys, what's up?

I am new to programming and need some help with the NoopsChallenge?

 

How do I start using an API like Hexbot?

I would like to make some projects of my own using the Hexbot API and Python, but I don't know how to start.

Could someone help me? All suggestions are welcome.

Re: Noops Week One: Hex Codes Everywhere discussion

I wrote a little gist that demonstrates the basic usage of the hexbot api. I added some comments so that you should be able to understand whats happening. You may have to install the requests module.

Just a simple little application with random number of squares changing colors every 1 second to create a disco floor!

I'm not sure if this qualifies. But I found a good use for the code hexbot uses to generate random hexes. Generates 1000 random css linear gradients.
