    Hi Guys,

    As an attempt learn more about ruby bots (and gain a reputation around here) I have put together a tumblr image scraper.

    It's really basic at the moment and currently only supports the downloading of upto 100 images. To get started simply put in the name of the tumblr blog that you wish to scrape, click the button and away you go.

    I just wanted to put out v0.0.1 to see what people thought and if it's worth developing to eventually feature options to post to pinterest/instagram etc?

    As I am too new around here to post the link - if you are interested in checking it out, my kik is trainbynumbers.

    Update - the heroku link is in the tags at the bottom.

    Just as an update this now supports selecting the number of results you wish to scrape.

    Sorry I actually got "File Not Found" but the font colour changed to black for some reason.

    hmm that's pretty odd - could you run a test on another users tumblr and see if it is working - all my tests are showing it as up.

    Ah I think this is because you are trying to use it to search rather than putting in the address of a tumblr account. I have updated my original post for clarity
