Today, a jeep trip was cancelled at the last moment. The cancellation was no ones fault, just life. As such, I found that I had a “found” day today and started work on a new website. I am not ready to announce the site at this point, I have a lot more to accomplish before that event.
For my new website, I have a new philosophy that I am working under. My idea is the build the site with as many off-the-shelf open source components as possible. This will re-educate me to the various projects out in the world and hopefully allow me to deploy quickly. Beyond just open source, I am hopeful to exploit some of Facebook’s developer features to market the site amount other things.
Although keeping copyright information in open source files is a common feature of open source tools, in order to further pay back the community and the developers who work within it, I have decided to call them out specifically on this site.
Open Source Tools:
- ImageMapster is a jquery plugin, which allows a developer to quickly build image maps for their website. This plugin is written and maintained by James Treworgy and more information is available at http://www.outsharked.com/imagemapster
- Sliding Login Panel with jQuery is available from web-kreation.com. This plugin adds a cool div overlay which can be dropped down to all your users to register and login. Very cool gadget and easy to implement.
More to come….
