Eventbrite Multi-Event Ticket Module

Fri, 05/12/2017 - 11:25

I was asked to add the ability to purchase Eventbrite tickets from a website using the Eventbrite ticket widget. The problem is that the customer had a number of events over the course of several months and I knew they would have several more over the years. The Eventbrite widget is complete, but you would need to copy the code for each event. This could be a little tedious, and it didn't seem as elegant having a ton of these ticket iframes loaded into one page.This seemed like an opportunity to create a simple program to automate everything.

GIT Exhibition

 "Versioning" is a pretty neat idea. I am not sure of the history of Subversion or Mercurial. But I know that GIT came about because Linus Torvalds..."needed" a version tool. So he wrote one. I find myself doing that all the time.I have a ton of little tools I write for this and that. I don't post even a portion of them. Certainly not the one I use regularly. I enjoy Open Source, but there is something to be said about security.

Line Drawings For Installation Manual of Process Control Equipment

Thu, 05/04/2017 - 06:47

Way back in the late 1990's or early 2000's I created some installation manuals for a line of industrial monitors called the BeeHive series.  I also created a logo, some other graphics and Flash animations. The worst thing about this early work is that I have lost so much of it. I would especially like to still have some of the Flash animations. 

I am pretty sure I still have the installation manuals in PDF form somewhere one of my old machines. I will simply have to dig.

TWIG Sub-Template Experiment

Mon, 04/24/2017 - 16:20

I wanted to be able to easily create a Content Type on the fly that would export photos using Lightbox.

Initially I just used a Module as a block. But that really seeming both impractical and overkill. So Instead I modified the templates in TWIG and the theme file. Now, I just need to create the Photo Library Content Type in 'Contents' and add the images I want to display.

Southern California Mountains Foundation

This website was designed by Nicole Beale. I built the markup, the SASS and wrote various modules and modified the Core PHP as was necessary. The CMS was Symfony Apostrophe 1.5. It was sort of an experiment in a way. The previous website was built in Symfony Apostrophe 1.5 and we didn't want to have to migrate the content and re-teach the employees on a whole new CMS. The problem was that Apostrophe was never designed for mobile websites.
