So i found this contest on the internet. A collaboration between Microsoft and An Event Apart to create an accessible website in under 10k. Called 10k apart. So i setup a Jekyll setup and started coding. The basic template is far beyond 10k so i got rid of it all.
Html is not compressed in Jekyll so i found a compress template to use. Sass can be compressed in the _config.yml. And all together i got it to some 9.someting k.
You can find my entry on the 10k apart gallery. And find the source on github. And a preview here.
I finally got around on creating pages on GitHub. I never got around on installing Jekyll because my Ubuntu server used ruby 1.x and i did not want to upgrade. But earlier this week and had no luck on using all the php, node and other static site generators i just forced myself to install the latest ruby version using rvm.
So i installed Jekyll and started playing around and setup a site with “jekyll serve” and liked it. I started looking for how to setup a static site using Jekyll and setting it up for the GitHub pages. I found out it is just stupid simple. Just push your Jekyll project to gh-pages. That’s it. GitHub fixed the pages automatically.
It`s just stupid simple
So i like grunt, people tell me there are lots and lots of builders in the world but i started a “Let’s create symfony with grunt” repository on git.
The first time i created the project i just forked an existing grunt edition of symfony and added the things i liked. Sounds great but now i wanted more. Symfony released a 3.0 version some time ago and i wanted to check my repository. And maybe update some things to the “real” version i wanted.
Anyway, not to make a post longer than it should, and i cannot create short posts. Check out the gruntfile on this. I used it on a symfony project, but you can use it on anything. It’s built for ease of use. Use it.
My repository: symfony-grunt-sass
Next time a how to es6 for n00bs with typescript or just something else.
Updated the google maps plugin to 0.3.1. I have changed the code to nice classes, so it looks great now and i can update the code easily. Not quite done yet, but the code works as is like the current plugin.
Next to do are:
- Add some icons for the markers.
- Load (all) the data dynamically, when moving the map.
- Add some custom field for use in other plugins in the admin for auto filling the address.
- Dynamically add more icons for the markers, maybe add a add button in the admin.
So i had a domain for my plugins on dev.dimme.nl, but i never used my main domain. So i moved the messages to the main domain dimme.nl.
I was also messing around with a website for a customer, so i just installed WordPress and started typing for a new theme. It worked, a mobile first theme which also can be used on a desktop and was quite surprised by the result. So i am trying to get it on the WordPress theme page. Made a base page for display to showcase the usages, you can see this on jour.dimme.nl.
Jour is a template based on bootstrap-3, but i am going to create some themes on bootstrap-4, and support all my plugins on that framework. Just because i like it and like to use it. I would like to host them and create some auto update functionality, but i havent figured out how to do that.
Just released, updated version of my googlemap plugin.
New in this release is the upgraded version of usage for the maps. You can now easilly use post, pages or other custom post types as the base of the maps. Autoloading maps on item pages. Directionservices added. And a cool banner on the wordpress page.
You can see usage on my demo page.
Release a teaser for a video clip for a band. Also added the song on it
Adding a menu for your site. WordPress uses a great menus option in your theme. And sincce i want to enable great features i started on this one.
We now made a style.css with the correct definitions. Now we want to create the basics for styling. Like i said, i would like to use the kube css framework. So in my functions.php i will start to make a action to load my styles. I already uploaded the kube.min.css to a css folder in my theme.
