SVG Preloader with Javascript

Sun, 03/18/2018 - 13:31

I am currently working on a CRM that will be including a feature to display statistics on a large screen.
A feature I proposed was a nice animated timer to display when each module would update.

This timer should be dynamic and should have the ability to have easy set parameters; update time, color, etc...

So anyways, this is what I came up with: SVG-Preloader GitHub Repo.

Basic usage is quite simple:


Whoa - Accidental Fractal

Thu, 03/01/2018 - 19:57

I was attempting to add a cracked windshield to the player tank in my Battlezone remake built in Javascript. I wanted to built the crack procedurally and it's "working".

My task was to:

Curious Pondering - MYSQL And How It's Always Eventually Evaluated As A String

Thu, 02/15/2018 - 08:16

I was working recently on building an abstraction for IndexedDB in Javascript and as I was building I was thinking ahead about building queries. I have only just begun using the feature and so I haven't really delved into retrieving data as it refers to searching. Regardless, I was thinking about building a simple SQL type language. This is really impractical of course but, the thought crossed my mind for a second. It passed quickly mainly because I would be evaluating a string and accessing a database.
