On Valentine's day, the MathWorks linkedIn channel posted this animated gif
and immeditaely everyone wanted the code! It turns out that this is the result of my remix of @Zhaoxu Liu / slandarer's entry on the MATLAB Flipbook Mini Hack.
I pointed people to the Flipbook entry but, of course, that just gave the code to render a single frame and people wanted the full code to render the animated gif. That way, they could make personalised versions
I just published a blog post that gives the code used by the team behind the Mini Hack to produce the animated .gifs
Thanks again to @Zhaoxu Liu / slandarer for a great entry that seems like it will live for a long time :)

So, people actually think this is better than my Low-budget Valentine for MATLAB Nerds from 2011? I can't imagine why.

It's better in the way that you can add names. Haha

lol! I love low-budget Valentine's. Just ask my fiancee ;)
Of course what's even nicer these days is that you can open it in MATLAB Online direct from file exchange with just one click. I did this from GitHub recently and LinkedIn loved it

I saw a comment that people want to customize names on the GIF. I like that idea a lot. Hope to see a File Exchange submission like that.
