I’m a huge Parks and Rec fan, it’s one of my favourite tv shows and is the creator of one of the most inspiring, funny and amazing friendships to ever be developed on screen. Leslie Knope and Ann Perkins.
Leslie’s poetic and weird ways to celebrate her friendship with Ann are some of the funniest lines in the show. I mean who doesn’t want a best friend to remind them that they are a beautiful, talented, brilliant, powerful musk ox?
I’m also one of those people who use Pinterest to collect pins of quotes, and pictures and other random crap from tv shows and movies. And if you started to think that I have a Parks and Rec board…you would be wrong — I do however have a Leslie Knope Board ?.
After gathering up a few quotes which I thought were inspiring (read: funny) I got the idea to create a compliment generator based on the compliments thrown at Ann Perkins during the show.
I had a couple of hours to spare so I got to work on it. It was fairly simple to create, all I needed to do was create a JSON file with compliments and use AngularJS to randomly output a new quote every time the page is refreshed. Easy Peasy!
