  1. Capsule Hotkeys and Background Queue

    It’s been very gratifying to see people continuing to discover Capsule this week, and seeing it resonate with them. This was typed into the demo earlier today: This software is an example of a thing that everyone wants but doesn’t exist until a great idea suddenly comes and voila! it appears! There are a couple…

  2. GameTonight for Status Board

    Game Tonight: Yes

    GameTonight now creates a module for Panic’s excellent Status Board iPad app. The URL is simple, add ‘/statusboard’ to any metro URL or, while on your iPad, click the link at the bottom of each GameTonight page to install the current metro in Status Board. Example: http://gametonight.in/denver/statusboard Here’s what you get: It currently looks best…

  3. Capsule Reaction and My Usage

    Quite simply, the reaction to Capsule has far exceeded my hopes. I’m thrilled. As Capsule is a product in a nascent category, my biggest concern was that people wouldn’t immediately see the benefits it could provide. That clearly has not been the case. Capsule appears to be a solution to a problem people (at least…

  4. Capsule, The Developer’s Code Journal

    Capsule

    I’m very pleased today to announce the release of Capsule, the developer’s code journal. Capsule replaces the scratch document you have open when you’re coding. Instead of throwing away those notes, code snippets, API responses, ad-hoc todo lists, and outlines, Capsule creates an archive of your development artifacts. Capsule is a free, Open Source (GPL)…

  5. GameTonight Now Understands MLB Preseason

    If you rely on GameTonight, you’ll be happy to know that it now understands the MLB pre-season schedule. The Grapefruit and Cactus league games should no longer be causing a “Yes” response when you check to see if there is a game tonight in your metro. Example: Denver This post is part of the project:…

  6. Announcing Threads

    threads-timeline

    I’ve just released an initial beta of Threads, a WordPress plugin I’ve been working on for about a year. The idea is simple: show posts that comprise a single overall story/topic in a timeline. Then link to that timeline from the posts so that your readers have a chance to get more historical context about…

  7. Social 2.8

    Social 2.8 (courtesy of MailChimp) was released today. This release was primarily to change over to using version 1.1 of Twitter’s API. Why should you care? Well, for one thing – the 1.0 API was starting to break and not get repaired in places. For example, you might have noticed that Social was no longer…

  8. jQuery Delayed Change Event Plugin

    A little while back I created a small jQuery library for a project I was working on. This was mainly an exercise for me to refresh my knowledge of jQuery plugins, but it was also a feature I needed. The feature is a “delayed change” event trigger for a field (useful when implementing background auto-save).…

  9. Fullscreen Editor Preview Button for WordPress

    Fullscreen Editor Preview Button Screenshot

    I updated my fullscreen editor preview button plugin for WordPress 3.5 and decided to release it as a plugin on WordPress.org. Mainly, this meant writing a README (and creating a proper repo for it on GitHub). This is a simple one-trick-pony plugin – it adds a Preview button to the fullscreen editor toolbar. Nothing more,…

  10. Reminder: Upgrade to Social 2.7

    If you’re using Social and haven’t yet upgraded to 2.7, make sure to do so before January 15th. The URL endpoint that Social talks to has changed and the old endpoint (used on versions prior to 2.7) will be going away on January 15th. This post is part of the project: Social. View the project…

  11. Using Social and Disqus at the Same Time

    I’ve had a few people ask about how best to use Social and Disqus at the same time. I’ve added an FAQ to the README for the next release: Can I use Social and Disqus at the same time? Both Social and Disqus try to replace the default WordPress comment experience by default. If you…

  12. What image gets passed to Facebook in Social broadcasts?

    Anyone who has developed against Facebook’s API knows that the only constant is change – Facebook is an ever-evolving platform. In Social we’ve made changes a few different times to the way we broadcast links. Our original posting approach was working fine, but as Facebook started rolling out their “Share” feature, it wasn’t available on…

  13. Social 2.7

    Just in time for the holidays I am very pleased to report we have a new version of Social for you (compliments of our good friends at MailChimp and my team at Crowd Favorite). This release as a few changes of note: Points to a new Social proxy URL. The old one will stop working…
