In some ways these two projects were no different. I still needed to build a GUI and hook up the connection BUT, this time I wrote the back-end code in Python to deal with hardware through an I/O interface.
Newton's cannonball was a thought experiment Isaac Newton used to hypothesize that the force of gravity was universal...
The cannon fires a ball that falls to earth. The cannon adds some power to the next shot and the cannonball goes a bit farther. Eventually the ball flies with enough velocity to break the planets gravity and falls into orbit. The ball literally falls around the planet indefinitely.
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:
Many websites have an animation of some kind running on the homepage. My website is no exception however, I like to experiment with different animations and such and I am sure I will want to regularly swap them out. I could simply dump in a new file whenever I want to make a change but, I like to design things that are a little more elegant. Something that might be used by other people in the real world. So, I built this simple module.
Our team was tasked with building a new website for a non-profit organization in Riverside for local authors known as the Inlandia Institute. The previous website was built on vanilla PHP with a custom CMS. The website had a few hundred authors and subsequently a few thousand associated books.
The CMS was limited and difficult to use and for this reason the owners had rarely used it.
My task was to:
