  • Updated GIF tag plugin for Jekyll

    I posted a quick update to my GIFTag Jekyll plugin. The plugin allows Jekyll to display a clickable poster image for animated gifs without forcing the user to download it on page load. The updated version no longer requires an external play image, instead generating the overlay using CSS only.…

  • A Jekyll plugin for animated GIFs

    I put together a Jekyll plugin called GifTag which turns local gif references into a styled placeholder with play/pause and preloading. This allows a page to finish loading before transferring heavy animated gifs, and adds user control as to when they start playing (as well as allowing them to stop).…

  • TL;DR, a jQuery plugin for bloggers

    I made a jQuery plugin called "TL DR" live on GitHub last night. It's designed for bloggers who write long posts: it adds a block with summaries and skip links automatically. It was inspired in part by QuikScan, which was pointed out to me by Christopher Allen.…

  • Jekyll plugin for quick "donate" buttons

    I'm still working on the Jekyll version of this site. It's coming along. Along the way I wanted a better-looking donation button, so I wrote a quick plugin to handle a donate Liquid tag:…

  • TextDown: Markdown editor for Chrome

    If you're a Chrome user, you've probably found that you can do a lot more than just browse the web within the application. Now you can edit Markdown, too. Enter TextDown, by Joao Colombo.…

  • LinkSmasher updated, works once again

    If you're using Dropzone (and why wouldn't you be?), I updated my LinkSmasher destination recently.…

  • Markdown QuickTags 0.8 for Christmas

    We're having a low-key holiday this year. I mean really low-key. Aditi's napping on the couch, the dogs are all sleeping, the cats and the bird are lazily preening themselves and I just fixed Markdown QuickTags.…

  • Markdown QuickTags makes 1000 people happier and more attractive

    I can't prove that anybody is happier, really, and attraction is entirely subjective. For all I know they were run off by the "invalid header" error and never even tried it out, but Markdown QuickTags finally passed the 1000 downloads mark on the Wordpress Plugins site. I'm celebrating by diving into nvALT for the weekend, but version 0.8 of MDQT is in the works.…

  • Markdown QuickTags 0.7

    Markdown QuickTags, my WordPress plugin which adds extensive Markdown features to the HTML editor, has been upped to 0.7. The download link has actually been incrementing for the last week, but this is the first real stable release, so I've held off on writing this up until today.…

  • Four WordPress Plugins I love

    I know some people have been moving away from WordPress and toward blogging solutions like Tumblr. The number one reason I hear for making this move is that WordPress gets to complicated once you start customizing. Distractingly so. I don't disagree.…

  • Pully: jQuery plugin for automatic pull quotes

    Another quick experiment. Honestly, I don't use pluggable functions in jQuery nearly as much as I should, so this is really just a brain exercise to get myself used to it. This one, called Pully, lets you specify a selector to have its contents cloned and inserted as a pull quote in your text.…

  • Auto-lightboxing image links

    I ran into a problem recently. I wanted to have links to images be "lightboxed," but I also wanted to blog in Markdown and not have to write out link tags with "rel" attributes for every image link. There are several existing plugins for Wordpress that will do this automatically, but I've been sticking with the jQuery Lightbox plugin, which handles Wordpress galleries in this manner, but requires the "rel=lightbox" attribute to handle single image links.…
