Quick post: I finished a bookmarklet, based on this years April Fool’s Day fun of www.karopapier.de:

Klick this, it’s a JS call that will make some random letters of this website move.

Why I did it? Because it works!

You can save it as a bookmark(let) and use it on every webpage out there

1) Press the bookmark
2) Press multiple times for additional fun
3) Click one of the flying letters to make them go back where they belong.

Like it?

PS: “Fluchstaben” is a combination of the German words for “flying” and “letters” (“Flug” & “Buchstaben”)

A TURTED based real-time thing that I’m proud of…

I recently finished a nice little example of how to use real-time data for an exciting and equally relaxing view:

Blocker Champ Real Time


What’s that?
It shows a list of players and the number of games where it is their turn.
As soon as they make a move, they are moved to the new position with a nice animation.

Interestingly enough, the hardest part was the JQuery/UI animation stuff.
Since it already is based on the components that are soon to become the TURTED project the real time events were already there to be intercepted and used.

So, if you feel stressed, just sit back, relax and watch the squares move – the ZEN of Karopapier
