I am still working out the actual page ;)
I was hoping for the final outcome to be something like an online GWEN designer.
Probably never going to get there, since all my fun was had working on this frame.
It uses the GWEN skin template: http://apush.comoj.com/img/DefaultSkin.png
You can move window around by dragging the titlebar.
Dragging the borrom right corner lets you change the window size.
Mind if I offer a bit of feedback though?
- The title on hover gets in the way of the actual text when I go to expand and read it. I think the main problem is the title is on the li element instead of just for the span.
- The way the text judders when it toggles is not very pleasing to the eye. I'd suggest using a different animation.
For those familiar with ruby/rails do you think that splitting up a controller into modules is a good idea even if it is not meant to be re-used in other controllers?
Let's say we have an action that maps to X trough GET, and on there is a form that does a POST action to XY.
Only I have a few actions that work in a similar way and the controller file is getting quite big, and I want to clean it up. So I ask before doing something that might be a bad habit.
90% of your controllers should only have 'new', 'create', 'show', 'edit', 'update', 'delete' and/or 'index'
post some code and i will critique it
I guess the correct way is to have the resource's own controller and use the parent's id to identify it?
every resource should have its own controller
For anyone interested in webGWEN, I made a github a while back.
I'm not going to have time to work on it a lot between work, but if anyone wants to expand on the project, you can just git clone it and make a branch.
I honestly don't know where to continue off with webGWEN. I tried making buttons but I don't know if I want it to have a defined X and Y or to have it positioned by HTML.
Got a wiki site that's still in the early days that's hitting 300 uniques and 3.7k pageviews p/d. Looking to migrate from shared host to a VPS, anyone have recommendations?
I'm trying to make forum avatars that update but I'm stuck. You guys know how a character's page on the wow armory has a picture generated from a 3d model? I've been trying to figure out if I can query blizard's server to give me back one of those pictures with a set of item id's I give it. I tried dissecting the source of the page but couldn't find anything useful. Anyone perhaps have any insight?
I think it is about time we did a equipment and software audit.
My setup is as follows:
A Mac mini
An Acer aspire ethos
An iPad (yep I do work on an iPad)
Windows 8 (which is surprisingly stable)
Github for windows
WebMatrix (only used for running local WordPress installations, not development) - I can setup a new WordPress install in seconds using WebMatrix which is great for development.
Coffee Script compiler (Command line version - someone really ought to make an automated GUI similiar to Simpless)
Chrome (obviously I have every browser but chrome is browser of choice)
Google drive (used for pictures, and documents but not code - that is all on github)
Google App Engine Launcher
I only really use OSX for app development using xcode (which i don't really do very often), however I have a pretty reasonable collection of osx apps like coda etc.
My PC is a little overkill and you could get a much better value machine easily but one thing which I do think is really useful is 3 monitors - it is one of those things that once you have got used to it you hate using any less. Also my keyboard is lovely (mechanical). I'm not a really big fan of the Logitech G9Xs but until I find something much better (especially software wise) I will stick with it. I hate the scroll wheel clicking on the g9x but love the free scroll wheel. I also love the ability to be able to independently set the x and y sensitivity (useful in jets in BF3).
I think I'm finally able to put out my super secret secret out there on the web, seeing as my website will go online soon for a testing phase.
Based on Magento Layover
Please feel free to critique anything.
Left click on the picture if they are blurry.
The reason I linked the original template was to make clear that it was never completely made by me.
Magento makes me value convention over configuration more and more every day I work with it. I shouldn't need to make a fucking xml file for the express purpose of telling an application that another file exists.
Thank you google!
Magento is configuration over convention and it's pretty annoying.
If I want to make a new module with one helper that I use to, for exmaple, generate image urls in a view. I need to make at the very least, three folders, two xml files (which do nothing but tell magento that the helper exists), and a php file.
