Gonna have to start turning these into podcasts soon! 😆
Today, let's try something different.
How much of a simple website can I build in five minutes?
(Not much, it turns out. But you get to see my little small-site starter kit in action!)
@jordibruin Hey! Just wanted to say hi and thank you for Soosee.
Aral Balkan boosted a post of mine about allergy detecting using Apple Shortcuts, and it got a TON of interest as a result.
I’ve been referring loads of people to your brilliant app. So I hope you do well out of it too.
Great work! And thanks again.
Phew! Thanks for all the fave's, boosts, follows and conversations. I've replied to as many of you as I can and have loved all the tips and conversation.
And thanks again to @aral for the huge boost!
If you liked the food-ingredient scanner shortcut it's here for you to tinker with:
Use entirely at your own risk and not for severe allergies/intolerances.
These apps also look great:
I didn’t even know it was possible to go viral on Mastodon. This is crazy. Getting about 4 favourites per minute and no sign of it stopping! 😂
Thanks for all the love and boosting. You’ve made my day!
Well. I didn’t expect that!
This pretty much equates to “going viral” on Mastodon, right?
Sorry, @kev, if this is hurting the servers!! 😬
5 silent minutes on dynamic properties in PHP objects today, showing more benefits of objects and types over arrays.
Video of iOS Shortcut that checks ingredients for citric acid – see the post above for what this is about.
I’m a frickin genius.
Context: my kid is mildly allergic to citric acid and citric fruit. Brings out eczema. And citric acid is in SO many things. And it’s painful checking ingredients lists for it.
This morning I wondered: can my phone OCR the ingredients list and check it?
My first thought was to make a little web app. But there doesn’t seem to be a OCR in web browsers yet.
But I KNOW my phone can get text from images.
CHECK THIS OUT!!!
Aah. Boo. Looks like you need third party APIs. Weird, especially as iOS does this to n device now. It must be coming, right?
Hmm. Is there a browser API that does OCR of images?
Thinking out loud…
Some more on using objects instead of arrays today. Well, it’s actually about PHPStorm settings.
Five minutes at a time though.
It’s fun making these!
Yesterday I posted a nearly-silent video, with just some music, about PHP arrays and objects.
"That was weird", I hear you say.
An experiment. This is for my #WordPress folks. But it's PHP in general too.
Here's 5 minutes on how you can, and some reasons why you would want to, convert PHP structured arrays to objects.
Privacy is there.
Does @ivory not do content warnings yet?
This seems pretty ironic, if you know what OWASP ZAP is.
I have the weirdest cold today. For some reason it’s streaming out of my eyes!! Never had that before.
No it’s not Covid. I tested.
My wife is being a legend letting me rest and doing ALL the things.
I was reminded by @jonathanbossenger that we once did a team “Pub Quiz” and it had a “Tech or Pokemon” round.
So… for your Sunday entertainment… are these tech? Or Pokemon?
No spoilers please! I’ll post answers as a reply sometime tomorrow.
My wife has bought an electric piano! Yay!
Her: I can make music. And the kids can learn too!
Me: This thing has wireless midi over Bluetooth? Cooool. What can I connect it to? What can it do?!
