Inspiration from an app?

So it’s been about two and something years now, and I’ve finished my second Masters.

It’s been a great ride, but the final project was a complete challenge that turned out great! I decided to try something new and at a month and 2 weeks to my Final Presentation date I decided to learn and make my app on Ruby on Rails.

It was a great experience and a great product came out of it, there’s a lot of front-end work that brings this app to life but also some nice (or so I think) ROR code that handles the backend.
Another great experience was meeting heroku it was so easy to deploy my app (after the learning curve :p ) that I instantly felt in love with it, and since my Reseller account didn’t support Rails 3 it was my only fast and cheap option plus it complemented perfectly with my Git repo.

Well I can go on for days and write a really long post here, but I think there’s no need for it. Experience http://inspiratio.me and let me know what you think of it @highvoltag3

Here’s some screenshots of the app if you don’t want to follow the link above.

Remove a section from WordPress Theme Customizer

So while doing some work today, while implementing the new WordPress Theme Customizer I came upon having to remove one of it’s defaults options more specifically the Title and Tagline panel.

And after some digging came across the correct code to do so in a comment at: http://wptheming.com/2012/06/add-options-to-theme-customizer-default-sections/

Though this code of course will only work if you put in on a function that will trigger it, so I decided to put a complete example unlike the comment where I found it for those of you that just know how to copy and paste into functions.php

function myown_customize_register($wp_customize)
  // I actually registered a bunch of settings and controls before running the line below, so if you want to register some controls you can put them here.

  //Finally lets remove the Title and Tagline from theme customizer since Sharam.com doesn't use it.
  $wp_customize->remove_section( 'title_tagline');
add_action( 'customize_register', 'myown_customize_register' );

Credits for the remove section comment goes to Kattagami – Gilles Vauvarin.

The long due.. Re-Design..

Ok, so I know I am quite late with the  2011 Re-Design of my blog. I’ve been dedicating most of the time to other projects but I’ve done it (at least the comp is somewhat ready) here’s a pic.

The cool thing abut this re-design is that I’ve got ambitious plans for it:

1) As an excuse to get my iPad it will be build 100% on the iPad.
2) Pure HTML5 and CSS3 awesomeness.
4) Modern 2011 app like look yeahh I know you like it :p

Since the iPad arrived  today I shall soon start to work on it.

Put your Grooveshark song in your Adium nick.

Hello everyone, here’s a small plugin I made for my Mac friends that use Adium to update your nick name with the current song being played in GrooveShark.

Install: Now Playing in Grooveshrak for Adium | Download: Now Playing in Grooveshrak for Adium
