Announcing Procatindex

Replacements

If you're even a little bit like me, you think Procatinator is one of the Internet's greatest achievements. (If you don't know Procatinator, pop on over there for a minute or two and you'll know whether the rest of this post is for you or not.)

If, like me, you have favorite cat GIF/music mashups but can't recall their exact URLs when you're trying to wow your friends, then my latest silly website project is for you.

Behold: the Procatindex!!

Procatindex.com keeps a list of all the Procatinator cats, with titles pulled from the music videos used. The list is automatically refreshed when there's a new cat, and you can subscribe to the RSS feed to make sure you never miss the latest additions.

The site and the script that refreshes it were built in a couple of hours with Requests and Flask, which made short work of the task. (If you aren't familiar with these, you should check them out. Though I have mixed feelings about Flask, it's a wonderful go-to for quick web apps like this. And Requests has become something I can no longer live without.)

Hopefully this improves the effectiveness of your procatination. Enjoy!
