Representational State Transfer

WP Commentable Block

April 19th, 2007 by sigurd (14) PHP, JavaScript, CSS
After Ext 1.0 has been released I decided to port comment system to it. Also for easier installation I make a plugin for Wordpress, so no comment system can be installed in several clicks :)

CSS + Javascript Bar Charts

March 26th, 2007 by sigurd (2) JavaScript, CSS
Recently I was working on CSS + JavaScript Bar Charts. SVG is good, but it’s not cross browser so I decided to write simple chart by myself. This is only alpha and there are a lot of work to do.
CSS design was taken form Eric A. Meyer CSS charts, and color generation was taken form Antone Roundy Color wheel.
Javasctipt is written using YUI and YUI-Ext libraries. You can see demo here
In future I plan move charts to Ext library by Jack to support several JS frameworks, add normal docs, tests etc. This release is for overview in spite I use it in some of my projects. If you have some ideas – just post them in comments. Now I’m working on TODO and BUGs list :)

WordPress Comments System YUI + YUI-EXT (tribute to Jack Slocum)

January 18th, 2007 by sigurd (5) PHP, AJAX
First of all I’d like to say that all you see here is idea and implementation of Jack Slocum. I just make some fixes into design and add some hacks into WP. Thank you Jack for developing YUIEXT and for your contribution to open source.
The idea of comment system is quite easy. Every wordpress post consists of blocks. Why people should leave comments below post, when each block can be comment separately. In addition simple dialogs can be used for leaving comments whis is more users friendly. After publishing his work Jack got over 2000 comments to his post. People just want to see – how it works :) But it was not available for community so I decided to change this :) (more…)
