Smashing Book Arrived

Though i'm not the designer type, i like to follow Smashing Magazine, very nice articles, monthly wallpapers :) and much more. So, when the pre-order notice on the Smashing Book came out, i immediately subscribed.

Though the wait went on for almost four months, it finally arrived and i have been hooked on it for almost tree days. I have enjoyed every page until now, a very fine read. It covers many topics on design and usability, presenting technics and small guides. I highly recommend it!

Check it your self at Smashing Book, related links from the book Smashing Links and another happy owner with a small review at pixelflips.com.

Ramaze - A Ruby Web Framework


Ramaze was used for a small web application we had to build for a college assignment (soundtape.git). It was a great experience, and for sure, if need arises, i'll use it again for any project i can squeeze it in. This post tries to be a small overview of the framework with some working examples and general overview, also keep in mind that this is my personal view and opinion on the framework. Feel free to send in corrections of any kind.

Ramaze is a small web framework built on Ruby, now split in two parts, Innate and Ramaze.

A Try At Having Badge And Growl Support In Fluid

FriendFeed, Fluid, Growl

Created this little script, so i could have Growl notifications from Fluid SBB running FriendFeed. It works for the real-time version of FriendFeed (https://friendfeed.com/realtime?embed=1), haven't tested it with any others.

I'm not very used to JavaScript or jQuery, which was used for DOM parsing, so improvements and advices are welcome.

To clear the badge just click on the top blue bar, it should get it cleared.

Hope you find it useful and fortunately it won't eat your cat.

Fluid User Style For FriendFeed - Updated

Just an update to the previous post about Fluid User Style For FriendFeed.

The CSS are now reduced, there's a packed and a readable version. Also added a user style for the real time version (Mini-Window).

iPhone version Pattern: *friendfeed.com/iphone/*

Real Time Pattern: *friendfeed.com/*realtime?embed=1


Real Time on the left, iPhone on the right

Real Time - iPhone

And the User Styles

Fluid User Style For FriendFeed


Just finished this FriendFeed (iPhone Version) user style for Fluid. Basically it's the original iphone.css fromFriendFeed with some changes to make it look more like Twitterrific.

Of course i could have just added what i needed to the user style and remove the rest os the css, but i started out of nothing and wasn't expecting to get it right. I should have marked the modifications (/me blushes). Hope no one minds :)

And the user style FriendFeed.zip

Google Apps Getting Some Labs Goodies!?

When i logged into gmail (google apps version) today i was presented a new look, but couldn't find a themes tab. No problem, i'm happy with the fresh aspect.

Another goodie was, Gears support available, meaning offline email.

With all the new stuff available for Google Apps i decided to try and log on Google Reader with the Google Apps account. Good news, it worked :)

I'm quite pleased, i was waiting on some of these features for some time!
