Shortcuts for GIFs

I love GIFs. I use them all the time. On my laptop, I have a LaunchBar custom bookmarks index that lists them all so that they're searchable and I can access them easily, but that's more difficult in iOS. I decided to see if I could use iOS' Shortcuts app to give me some sort of search UI for them, and it turns out I can!

First step was to change the script I use to sync my GIFs folder with my website and include a JSON file that Shortcuts can read. Once I had that, there was a lot of trial and error to get Shortcuts pulling the JSON file down and searching it, but it works really well. I added it to my homescreen so I can trigger it easily, and now I can be abusive to people via the medium of GIFs conveniently using my phone!
