Too Long; Didn't Read

Recreating The Instagram Double-Tap with JavaScript. We will bind a double-click handler to our image show the heart animation plus the counter below the post. We only need 12 lines of JavaScript to recreate the famous Instagram double-tap to like effect. We make use of Flex to center the post, we make the icon (heart) absolute and give it an opacity of 0, so it's not visible on load. Then we say if this icon also has the class like add the animation like-heart-animation. And last we have our number of likes.
