posted by admin in Code, CSS, design, HTML, JavaScript, jQuery, jQuery

After just sitting there collecting dust for a while, Slideshowify is back and better than ever.

New updates include CSS3 support (provided via @rstacruz‘s excellent jquery.transit.js plugin), animation as well as zooming in both directions and better browser support – it works and looks great on tablets and other touch devices.

In addition, the project now has a legitimate project homepage which provides documentation and a couple of live demos.

iStockutils.com – Built with Flask and Now Live

I recently set out to learn Python, specifically on the Flask (+Werkzeug/Jinja2) microframework, and did so through developing a tool for iStocphoto.com contributors. The result is iStockutils.com, and the code is available for viewing/forking on GitHub.

I still have much more to learn, but though this exercise I’ve become a big fan of Python and, after working with lots of different templating engines over the years, really like the format and flexibility of Jinja2. Kudos to Armin Ronacher for his fantastic work on all of this.

No kudos though to the iStockphoto folks who haven’t even responded to my request for access to their API. This means that all of the data is currently scraped from the HTML. Nasty.

Processing XML with jQuery – An IBM devWorks Tutorial

posted by admin in Code, JavaScript, jQuery, jQuery, PHP, XML

My tutorial on processing XML with jQuery in the browser is now live on IBM’s developerWorks website. Check it out at:

Most JavaScript and jQuery ninjas needn’t read past the title for the gist, but hopefully there’s something new for everyone. Either way, your comments are welcome.
