CSS 3D transforms are cool! I just stumbled upon them recently and came to know that they've been there for almost an year now. Few browsers support the 3D transforms, Chrome does it and that makes me happy :). So I started playing with it and made a 'star wars opening crawl'. Check it out...I'm looking forward to dive deeper into it and hopefully will come up with something good. Here is the 'Star Wars Crawl'
Wishing everyone a very happy and prosperous holi! For those not playing outside this year, check out this (even those playing can check out 😉 Uses jQuery and RaphaelJS. More on that coming soon.
For the past couple of days I've been trying to finish what I had started off a while back but had abandoned midway - a logo turtle interpreter. For those who dont know what logo turtle is: Turtle graphics is a term in computer graphics for a method of programming vector graphics using a relative cursor (the "turtle") upon a Cartesian plane It was basically used in schools to familiarize 7-8 year old kids to computers. And I was always interested in making one because it was small little logo turtle that introduced me to the world of computers. Yeah
Well so after almost a fortnight of writing and rewriting code...i present the alpha of GCMS - The blogging system that lets you write(only!). Its still under development...so don't expect anything fancy because this the first working version, is just skeletal and there are no additional features. There has been hardly any testing and the code is premature. BTW, the name, GCMS, is just a code name during the alpha version...actually i couldnt come up with any clever name, hence code name : GCMS :P, which stands for Ganesh's Content Management System. I shall come up with a better name...hopefully
Over the past few days(almost a week) I resumed working on a content management system that I had abandoned a few months ago. It is coming up quite all right, and has some primitive functionality. I don't see it replacing wordpress for my site but it may come handy for smaller sites. Anyways, the main challenge I faced while resuming was the lack of documentation/commenting(duh! the books never lied about comments). I have made it a point to comment on whatever new code I write. And also, kudos to the online tutorials which have made life easier. Pagination is easy
