Jeff McGee's Blog of Messages Worth Passing


Posted on Thu 21 March 2013 in Projects

VineMap is a quick project I did a few days after Vine launched. I use Twitter's streaming API to listen for links to Vines. I then geocode the location field from the Twitter's user profile. (I'm throwing away vines posted by users without understandable locations.) I put the tweets in a Mongo capped collection, which I share via a simple REST API. A javascript program pulls the new tweets every 15 seconds.
