I can't wait for an open Crumbles api. Need legit Slack plugin stat.

this is awesome! how did you guys pull this off technically? is there an API you're using that has video subtitle data?

@thatguybg Hey Brett – we manually cut the videos and matched them to words and phrases. We're using a trie data structure that then matches phrases to videos that are stored on S3 and cached using cloudflare.

@samejr got it - that must be why there are only a handful of clips available. I would love to see this done programmatically - let me know if you guys ever go down this route.

@thatguybg It's definitely one of the keys to scaling this type of app. We'll keep you posted.

Crumbles is fun as a website, but the app version is even more useful (read: distracting)
