I also set up a gallery, so if you've got nice scrollbars that aren't here yet, send' em right away!
Remember my first and only WordPress plugin? Well it just got better.
Tired of having to copy paste nasty HTML code from sites such as YouTube, Vimeo and so on? Looking for a way to insert recurrent content in your posts without having to type it every time? Would like to be able to inject parameters in these snippets? Well, now you can.
Just install Snips and use the bundled shortcodes or create/edit your own!
Each Snip is a combination of a name, a model and optional parameters. The name defines the shortcode tag you will be able to use, the model is the content that will replace your shortcode calls and the parameters (that look like #the-parameter# in the model) are portions of the model that can change from a call to an other. Those parameters can have default values or can be left empty and then become mandatory.
All of this can be edited via a simple UI, found under Settings > Snips... Here's screenshot:
For those that used Snips' first version: (0.2) everything should be OK, the previous syntax will work ; but I recommend using the new one and the corresponding updated model files (ex: yt becomes yt2). Also, the #up# parameter (used in mp3 and swf snips) has to be set manually to your blog's upload path.
If you use it and find bugs, please let me know! This is the first time I use jQuery behavior (for the parameters' detection in the Settings page) so it could act a little weird.
I recently released FFFFOUND Desktop, this AIR app uses a home-made API that I'm open sourcing today. The code is hosted on Google Code and is available via SVN, I also uploaded a zip archive if you prefer.
You'll find the (asdocs) docs in the repository and in the archive.
By the way, I love feedback. If you use it: please share!
Also, if you need examples on how to use it, ask. I think the sources are self-explanatory but I might be wrong.
A few important things (also posted on the project's page):
- For now, this API will only work in AIR projects because ffffound.com's crossdomain.xml is too restrictive. I've contacted them but at this time they don't want to change it.
- The API relies on FFFFOUND's RSS feeds but also on the site's pages' HTML, so some functionalities might break at any time without warning. Use with caution.
Watch the comments for any update or news!
Here is Shrink O'Matic, my new AIR application!
Simply drag and drop images on it and they'll be resized as you wish.
More info on the project page...
I've also set up a new projects' page listing AIR apps and more.
Concerning the source code, it's not available but you can find parts of it in a brand new Google Code project where I've added (and I'll keep on adding) classes I use.
