Whose Your Landlord is Now Live

Whose Your Landlord

It has been a wild six months. I remember when Ofo first came to me with the idea. It was a great idea and there was definitely a space for it in today’s online landscape. At the time, I had never took on a project so large and challenging. I did not even know anything about Ruby on Rails. All my previous experience had been in PHP and ASP.NET. After many long nights and cans of Mountain Dew, the website is finally live and ready for consumption. Check it out or read more about the process after the jump.

slideControl.js Range Input jQuery Plugin

slideControl.js range input jQuery plugin
Right now I’m hard at work on a pretty large-scale Rails projects that has both been a great learning experience as well as a headache. For the project, I needed a way for users to input numbers within a range for ratings and wanted to do something more intuitive than simple input boxes. I know there are other solutions for jQuery range sliders, but I really didn’t want to use jQuery UI. So I made my own solution.

jQuery productColorizer Plugin

I finished my first jQuery Plugin today and I’d like to think I did a pretty darn good job. The plugin allows you to provide a way for your users to visualize products in different colors. The plugin is light and uses only two images to achieve the effect and is very flexible and can use any color you wish. You can check out the plugin’s page, look at the source code, or keep reading for more background.
