Beer Bubbles CSS
Another random conversation led to this experiment . . . it’s animated CSS which is pretty cool but I can’t take any credit for it.
I found this example on Codepen and then mainly gutted it to make what you see below (also a minor experiment with flexbox).

Not perfect but control clicking on the title of the article in Feedly lets me choose Diigo Web Collector>Save to Diigo from the menu (on Chrome on a Mac with the Diigo plugin installed). I’m assuming right clicking on a PC will do the same. What’s funny is I’ve been trying to figure a decent way to do this for a while. I didn’t think it was worth the pro version fee. There are many people who want Feedly/Diigo integration (Delicious is the current default). I was about to go the very difficult route of trying to write a browser plugin similar to Alan’s Flickr CC attribution helper. I was already at the point of looking at Chrome’s API documentation. I was then in the place of wondering if a Chrome extension could impact a Chrome application . . . luckily I then thought of an amazingly easy straightforward solution. I know my reliance on the freemium tools of Internet is fraught with all kinds of drama. I’m working on it and I have backups. I will not weep if they wander off.
Gravity Forms makes my list of Non-Programistan tools. I haven’t seen quite enough posts celebrating the fact that Gravity Forms can do magic. The key feature at the moment that is kind of blowing my mind is the ability to use modifiers on the submissions fields— the ability to have the label (what the user sees/answers) be one thing and the value be something entirely different. It has the potential to enable some SPLOT like activities without the coding on the tool maker endI know Alan Levine. Alan Levine is a friend of mine. I am no Alan Levine. . . . I know that sounds like nonsense but just follow me a bit . . . It’s easy to miss the checkbox that turns on the values. You can see it in the fairly annoying GIF above. The cool thing is you can put virtually anything in the value field- images, HTML chunks etc. This plus the ability to create content templatesThink mail merge . . . gives you the ability to have user form interactions create some fairly sophisticated content.You can also chain forms and use variables from the forms in the URLs which would enable some wild options with Choose Your Own Adventure style progressions. In this example the user selects “Awesome” as the answer to a […]
As part of some thoughts on building out a series of reflective views for student portfolio blogs, I thought seeing your WordPress posts in the TimelineJS view might be a useful way to look back over your progress. I intend to wrap this into a custom spreadsheet template and/or a pluginOr maybe just a page where you throw in a blog URL and get a bunch of alternate view/data options. but figured I’d sketch out how it works so far in case anyone was interested. The WP Rest API makes it pretty easy to write the data via Google Script. I just want to cut out chunks of the data and put it in the right fields. The following script does that and writes it to a page named “wp.”
