Link to post Time + Creativity – Christopher Murphy @ Beyond Tellerrand, Düsseldorf 2016

vimeo direct link For one reason or the other, this talk resonated very much with me. The question of how much time we have (left) available and how to spend it, definitely worth your time.


Add class attribute to WordPress "the_tags" markup

Link to post Add class attribute to WordPress "the_tags" markup

I'm in the process of gradually enhancing my site's markup with microformats, in order to "indiewebify" my site further. On thing I noticed while working on this at the Düsseldorf Indiewebcamp, is that WordPress (or the way my theme handles) tags on posts has no way to get an additional class inside the link markup.…

Sitting in my hotel room, watching the sun rise, while some people are having a good time at a party that's happening right next to the hotel… In the basement right next to the hotel a party is still growing strong at this hour. and they're into deep bass. oomp oomp. oh yeah — Tom…


Indiewebcamp Düsseldorf

Right now I'm sitting in the very (very!) nice atrium of Sipgate GmbH in Düsseldorf, and the #Indiewebcamp just started. Aaron, Tantek, Jeremy, and other Indiewebcampers are demoing their websites, and -- surprise -- there is a picture of me in good company, having a good time, on Jeremy's site. I'm excited to be here,…

After having a splendit time last weekend helping and participating at the Indiewebcamp Nuremberg (as a result of which I know have a 'progressive web app' where before there was only my website ;), I changed my travel plans around the visit of the Beyond Tellerrand conference, and will attend the next Indiewebcamp in Düsseldorf.…

Dominant Color in an image

Link to post Dominant Color in an image

Inspired by this great blog post by Manuel Wieser, I made a php script to find the dominant color in an image, and create a data-url containing a colored "spacer" gif. The hardest part was to figure out how the node.js "buffer" functions compare to php's "pack" function. For all the other cryptical stuff about…


Apple "Customer Letter" regarding US authorities asking to build a backdoor to the iPhone

Link to post Apple "Customer Letter" regarding US authorities asking to build a backdoor to the iPhone

This moment calls for public discussion, and we want our customers and people around the country to understand what is at stake. Wow. I think this is huge: […] now the U.S. government has asked us for something we simply do not have, and something we consider too dangerous to create. They have asked us…

Link to post Rootline HTML page title for ProcessWire

At the moment my favorite tool for custom tailored web sites is ProcessWire. If you never heard about it before, it is a very clever piece of PHP-based Content Management System/Framework with a very powerful but intuitive API which plays very nicely along with other applications. I have build (or was involved in) projects based…

Link to post Don’t tell me what my browser can’t do! – Christian Heilmann

This article by Christian Heilmann (of Mozilla and Microsoft fame) about the misconception that expecting certain features and capabilities in browsers and simply stating "please upgrade/turn on/go away" if these "requirements" are not met by the user's set up is web development is very much worth your time if you create things for the web.…
