Giphy is a pretty fun app with a huge amount of content. Lot's of big companies like Slack integrate with Giphy to add some fun to their product, but you might not realize that the Giphy API is free to use for developers as well.

Giphy API demo

In this video I'll show you how to use one of their newer API features, automatically generating animated text with a bunch of interesting styles.

There's also a bunch of other cool API endpoints available for you to use that I cover towards the end of the video like:

  • Search by keyword
  • Pre-Built React Components provided by Giphy
  • Trending Gifs
  • Random and Weirdness sorted Gifs
