Rock – N – Roll

Be a Drummer! Wanna be a rock drummer god?  Well check out this fun little app I made for a javaScript class.  It won’t really turn you into Neil Peart, but it’s fun to tinker with and you can turn down your speakers when people complain.  For those technically inclined this one was made with vanilla javascript, CSS and HTML5. Go bang a drum!  ...

Sliding Text Buttons

Just a fun little example of a unique, yet tasteful, animation applied to buttons.  This one uses CSS only, no JavaScript and no jQuery of any kind.  To me though, the impressive part is the “unique, yet tasteful” portion. View Example

Don’t be Alarmed

404 pages can be fun! A “404” page is a page that displays error 404 in a web browser.  Error 404 is triggered when the user requests a page that doesn’t exist.  Typically they are a short sentence or two with black text on a white background.  They don’t have to be though.   This one is a showoff project just to display some skills and creativity.  It’s made entirely with CSS.  Look Ma!  No JavaScript.  It’s animated so view it by clicking the button below: View...

Animated Color Boxes

This is an experiment for some UI elements.  Personally I don’t like the colors chosen for this little experiment but I think the effect is nice and that’s what the experiment was all about. This one is all CSS and HTML, no JavaScript needed which is great because it speeds up websites, makes them more compatible  with more browsers and makes it run better on phones and tablets.   Check it out!

WordPress Plugin – KillJi

This one is for WordPress Developers mostly.  While it’s simple and useful for anyone that manages a WordPress website, it’s value will only be apparent to those who work with code and website speed improvement etc. A while back WordPress added an “improvement” to the way it handles emojis in it’s comment forms.  while this may be a little better than how it was in the past, it makes a mess of the code of every page, page template, post type etc that WordPress generates.  It also slows the entire website down a...
