This post is just to announce that I have released the source code from TempServers on GitHub under the MIT license. The link to the repository is below. This code has been sitting here collecting dust, so I figured I should just release it to the open source community. It might contain something useful to someone.
I also have another project about to be released to open source. It started as a small project for a single site but is developing into something potentially reusable. I'm using this as an opportunity to get more familiar with Git and the whole development cycle.
Noty has been updated to include a WordPress plugin for easy integration. Along with the original standalone version, you now have the option to install it as a standard WordPress plugin. This means that WordPress users never have to see code!
You may also notice that this blog is now using Noty (over there on the right, if your browser supports it). If you want it on your blog, consider checking it out at CodeCanyon.
Noty is the name of the HTML5 application I developed for the recent HTML5 competition hosted at Nettuts. Unfortunately I did not win, but I did learn a lot about HTML5 and related technologies.
It is available for purchase at CodeCanyon.
Noty is a simple widget for taking notes about the current page. A potential use is taking notes on a blog post for commenting later.
Noty uses several HTML5 and related technologies, using the browser’s native functionality wherever possible. It is designed to work in modern browsers.
- Drag-and-Drop support via the browser’s native API . You can save excerpts from the page simply by highlighting text and dragging to the widget.
- Persistent storage of notes for browsers that support it. Notes are saved in the user’s borwser for future visits.
- Sharing of notes with link via Email or Twitter
- Automatic URL shortening for sharing via bit.ly
- Ability to scroll directly to the source of a note on the page (not available in Internet Explorer)
- Fancy CSS3 effects (box-shadow, gradients and transitions)
- Fully semantic HTML5 markup
- Collapsable widget, remembering the state for the next page. This is useful in case the widget covers part of the page.
- Tested to work in current versions of Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari
