Working at a company with a lot of sensitive data like IBM made me realise the danger of uploading stuff to places you don't trust;
And as a person who makes gifs for my friends regularly, I got concerned! What if some shady conversion website is laughing at my friend's grimace face?
The natural course of action as a programmer was to make the tool myself, this way I can rest assured that no data is going anywhere.
The dream was alive, making gifs without sending anything to any server, but how the f#@% would I do it?
The next question was: “how can I run C with FFMPEG in the browser?”, and searching it on google was helpful. It turns out I can very easily run C with something called Web Assembly.
My luck wasn't even close to stopping; At this point I found a Github repository that did exactly what I wanted to do; And as a good programmer, I Yoinked it!
After some bug fixing and updates, including remaking the state management and creating a UI from scratch, I was set.
I finally have a gif-making tool that my friends and I can trust without a doubt.
