Embed a Google Folder in Populr.me
We’ve had a few people who became big fans of populr.me. They’re also using Google Docs/Drive and since I like things to blend . . . here’s how you embed a Google Drive folder into populr.me. The example is here if you want to check it out.
Getting That iFrame Stuff
I started to write directions on how to do this but just built a little tool instead.
Cowboy Jason Stanley performing a riding trick at the Round-Up, Pendleton, Oregon flickr photo by UW Digital Collections shared with no copyright restriction (Flickr Commons) I’ve been doing quite a bit more with the WordPress Rest API lately. There’s plenty of documentation and tutorials out there but most of it still feels a bit scattered to me so I’m going to stick a few of the basics here and add a few things that have come up repeatedly that aren’t quite as basic. There’s an attempt here to move upwards in complexity with the examples but to keep them as clean as possible. This will deal entirely with getting the data. I haven’t done much with using the API to write or modify data. Get the Info There are many ways to get data depending on your library of choice or if you’re using vanilla JS. I’ve played with fetch and Axios on the lighter side and jQuery, Vue, and Angular (v1) on the heavier/more involved side of things. I’ll use jQuery in this version because it’s fairly popular but here’s a Vue example. The example below does a basic jQuery ajax call for the JSON associated with blog information. See the Pen simple jquery get of WP JSON for the site by Tom (@twwoodward) on CodePen. The URL Structure/Accessing […]
Like the music post a while back, I’m not going to attempt to tie this to education in any way. I’ll start this off with a caveat similar to my posts on programming . . . I’m just a guy trying to do stuff. Almost all of it is on the very edge of, perhaps a bit beyond, my competency levels. It is not unlikely that I will either say something that’s a bad idea or document something poorly. You have been warned. To set the stage, I have four kids. We have three bedrooms so the youngest two share a room. It’s not a huge room so bunk beds have been a topic of conversation for a while. I decided I’d talked enough over Winter Break and decided to make them. I have little woodworking experience. To the point that I’m not even sure if people call this woodworking. Carpentry maybe? I’m probably doing something like calling heating up pre-made cookie dough baking . . . Full disclosure, I have a table sawI bent the metal legs and had to remove them. This speaks volumes about my experience level. and a circular saw. I put in hardwood floors in our first house. I used floor glue instead of nails.Glue was a terrible, terrible mistake. I built a gate for […]
The theta software sucks but the camera is decent #theta360 – Spherical Image – RICOH THETA At one point you could mount a Ricoh Theta camera on a Mac like so . . . Mass Storage: Press Wireless and Shutter. While continuing to hold these buttons, plug THETA into computer with USB cable. Camera will be powered off. via this It appears this no longer works on Macs running an updated OS. I never found one that worked . . . but supposedly it does on older version. I tried a number of things on various machines here but even diskutil list in terminal wasn’t seeing the Ricoh. Molly even went to great lengths to call and talk to a person on a phone but he was less than no help. There seems to be a pretty basic assumption that you only want to take video in the camera and upload it via their app. Much like the GoPro, it’s hard to tell what’s going on in the Ricoh via the device itself. It tells you it’s on, wi-fi is up etc. but storage remaining and a few other things that might matter are not apparent. Get Your Video & Cleanse the Camera To get the content to your phone and remove it from the camera, you’ll need to go […]
