I thought I'd mess around with WordPress and create a plugin or two. I ended up creating SEOBudd, a SEO stats plugin for WordPress. It retrieves stats about your website, such as average load time, social media mentions and incoming search words. It' has been approved and is now available for purchase on CodeCanyon.
The last week, I've been tinkering with Google's Analytics API. What I wanted to do was have daily reports on my website which then tweets the difference from yesterday to today. The ideal situation was I would have it SMS me the results. The problem is that my phone carrier (Rogers) complicates things. For most carriers, you can email a carrier-supplied address (firstname.lastname@example.org for example) which in turn would send an SMS to that address. But, what Rogers does is once you receive a text, you have to respond back with REPLY to view it. Stupid huh.
I made this little tool the other week: it's a simple URL to QR code generator that uses AJAX so it's even zippier. Check it out here: http://qrer-snacsnoc.dotcloud.com
It uses the PHP QR Code library to generate the QR codes. I set it up so it caches URLs that have already been generated which make it faster to deliver the image.
After playing around with WorkSimple 1.3.5 (and apparently not doing much testing), login.php doesn't redirect on login and cp.php strips HTML. Download the attachments below and replace cp.php and login.php with the new versions. Save the new versions as cp.php and login.php respectively and upload them to your WorkSimple install directory.
I've been making lots of new changes to WorkSimple, paving the way for WorkSimple 2.0. I'll be going over old code and re-implementing some things. I used Twig for templating instead of a custom made method since it seemed easier and more convenient. Templates now are much more customizable and flexible. Check out the screenshot for what it may look like (the colours suck, I know).
Worked some more on Pasteros, cloud based text storage lately and added some more features. Now you can download a paste or view it raw. Also, it displays how long ago the paste was submitted. The design colours still suck of course. There's an API (of some sort) so feel free to check it out.
I just had to create [another] text storage project, just for shits. Pasteros (temporary domain) is a text storage storage (think Pastebin, Pastie, etc) running on DotCloud. It uses Twig for templating and I just converted the MySQL innerworkings to PostgreSQL (juste pour le fun). I also made an API for public use as well. I'll be releasing the source code shortly. Any feedback is appreciated.
