Hobby Projects and Ideas

Sun, 07/30/2017 - 14:16

On my "down-time" as a hobby I write code. I know, that's a hell of a thing, but you have to remember that I started getting paid to do my hobby. But, my hobby is still my hobby. Part of the problem I have always had with my hobby versus my professional work is that I start a project...Then I will get bored with it and move on to something else OR I will get interested in some caveat of the current project which will derail me from the current project.

So, I am hoping if I lay some of my current projects and current ideas out in an article, MAYBE I will remain focused and get around to all of them.

  1. Wes Mantooth - Game engine built in Javascript
  2. CSS - Unused rules reduction bookmarklet
  3. Aggregate Wordpress stylesheets and scripts
    • It seems like this should have been done by ... well by Wordpress, a long time ago. Wordpress core contains arrays that gather up all the style sheets and scripts that are "correctly" added to themes and plugins. My idea is to simply over-ride the wp_head() functions that add the link and script tags and aggregate them...I also plan to minify them. This would make for a faster page load and reduce render blocking.
  4. Gluon - A Content Management System for a single basic website
