  1. Any ideas for quick API “mashups”?

    Looking for ideas of things to make with Goldsmiths students.

    @paulpod Ta, I’ll have a look.

    @tolmasky Well I had to google what a repl was, so explaining that would be a good start :)

    @tolmasky I can’t really understand what Tonic is from the website, so don’t think I’ll be able to explain it to non-coders, sorry.

    @invisiblecomma Yeah, I’m afraid so. No time to get into anything more than plain JS, and jQuery to make some things simpler.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @invisiblecomma Interesting, thanks. I don’t want to rely on any libraries other than jQuery, and I guess these use whatever Tonic is?

    @dracos Ta, I’ll add that to the bag of possibilities and see what tumbles out.

    @eliothill A “weird weather related gif-mess” sounds promising!

    @tomcoates I am glad you like it. I can find fault with anything :)

    @tomcoates The fonts? They just look a bit… like bad PhotoShops. (link still works for me)

    @tomcoates I’m not sure what’s worse: the press-release nature of the “journalism”; the ripping off of someone else’s idea; or horrid fonts.

    @amcewen @cheapjack Oh yes… for the Little Printer publication of that we just used howmanypeopleareinspacerightnow.com/space.json

    @amcewen @cheapjack Interesting, thanks!

    @tomstuart Ta. I know next to nothing about Pokemon. I’m so sorry. Will 20-year-olds be excited about it…?

    I’m looking for ideas for quick things to make using APIs and JavaScript with design students: gyford.com/phil/writing/2… Any thoughts? Ta.

    @masonjames @davewarfel 2 years later… is Piwik still working for you on @wpengine? They tell me self-hosted Piwik isn't supported. Thanks.

    @suegyford I’m *guessing* you need “Office Home & Student 2016 for Mac”: products.office.com/en-gb/buy/comp…
