First live facebook app

I’ve been helping out local agency Super Top Secret for the past few weeks, and yesterday finished up a Facebook app for Street League, a company that puts on skateboarding tournaments all over the country. They wanted fans to be able to view the tournaments live through a Facebook app.

It’s a pretty simple app that just displays a video feed and provides a venue for discussion. Due to some annoyances with the Facebook API we had to employ some trickery to balance between capturing user “likes” and providing easy access to the video stream. There’s a basic CMS to update the status of the current feed. Everything was done with Python/Django (along with the Facebook Javascript API of course).
