Covid-19 Tracker

I’ve used real data from the World Health organization and then chose which stats to put together, added text and of course, it’s got to look better than a list of numbers. The data below may be repetitive but it just an opportunity to show some of the different ways to present the information and some of the different sets of information I could combine. Technical Details: I’ve used an API to receive data from the WHO (World Health Organization), using JavaScript to communicate with the API and output CSS and HTML with a...

Health Care App Interface

Here’s a little UI kit I was playing with. It’s CSS only. While it isn’t hooked up to any data it shows a nice way to design an interface.  The squares reveal sections of a background image.  The first one is a dark moonlit photos and the second one is brightly lit dandelion close up. You could tie some kind of conditions to them from within your own backend, be it PHP, JavaScript, or whatev, and use the imagery as a way to visual inform, at a glance, which of the items on the screen had been tested during this session....

Local Browser Storage Example

HTML5 adds a new feature that can be very handy in certain circumstances.  Local Storage lets us to store data (in key / value pairs) on the clients machine via the browser.   It soes this with a new JavaScript API.  Its better than cookies because: It can store more data The data isn’t cleared when all cookies are deleted Only when data from that specific website is deleted in the browsers setting or via a plugin. No expiration date on the data It has two draw backs: Some people don’t allow any websites to store local data. It...

Getting a Gravatar with PHP

Getting a Gravatar with PHP

Getting a Gravatar icon for a specific person is actually harder than it seems.  Even if you know their account name, which is simply the e-mail address they signed up with.  Typically a developer doesn’t know that because he’s making an app to be used by anyone, not just one person.  This uncertainty is  typical.  What is unusual is to need to take that information and then encrypt in with a MD5 hash and then use it. There are several methods out there, but they most of them seem pretty complicated.  So I though it might help...

Here is EVERYTHING That can be done with Scrolling Header Effects!

3 Expanding Panels

This UX/UI example is an excellent component for a home page I think.  It’s just a real simple yet great looking layout offering 2-5 choices.  With a little bit of modification it would even work great on Mobile, although on mobile maybe limit it to 2-3 choices? Adding a navigation bar with a logo to the top of the screen wouldn’t mess up the look, nor would simply adding some kind of down arrow symbol to let people know there was more content below if they just want to scroll down.  In this example there isn’t any more...
