Yes this looks great. And indeed this could really use the MSX 2+ screens Tongue

That´s pretty cool. How do you decompress the images? oO

Yes, i was wondering this as well.. and what about https encryption? As MSX basic would way to slow for this. Are you using a proxy or something like this? If you use a proxy, i really like to know how.. maybe it would be something useful for symzilla.

He is using a proxy, see: https://github.com/glufke/instagr8 although the source for the server side isn't added yet.

I would say its impossible to decompress the images that fast, right?

edit:
Ah, yes, now I see, the server is doing the hard work Smile

Nice! I wonder if it works only for instagr8 or for every website.. It seem he is making a screenshot and convert it to display on the MSX.. very need!

I think ericb (fusion-c author) has done something that works for any image in the internet. :) And for sure glufke's server code probably can do it as well, if it already doesn't, with minimal changes. B-)

Exactly... It's impossible for MSX to deal with:
* HTTPS (for Instagram API)
* JSON parsing (huge files)
* Huge images, conversion to 256x192, conversion to 16 color, conversion to MSX pattern.

All of it it's made in the "middle" layer. (in AWS :-D)
Well, I will update the github in the next days, but if you have a GR8NET, you can download the INSTAGR8.BAS and run in your MSX.

Thanks guys !

The server side could be used to different tasks, for example:
* It would be very easy to adapt it and have a TWITTER with pictures in the MSX.
(Same principle, MSX makes a request to the "simplification layer", this server makes all the heavy-duty work and prepare the info to be downloaded by MSX).
