  1. Facebook Connect CodeIgniter Library « Elliot Haughin

    That photo does not endear me to the chap but this is still quite handy if you’re after that kind of thing.

  2. Ajax with Codeigniter | Setting Up Jquery | Tools for Ajax | Web Lee

    I usually like reading docs rather than screencasts, but, while these weren’t *quite* what I was after, they’re quite good. And it’s nice to have an English accent on these things.

  3. Simonw’s mytweets at master - GitHub

    “Script for saving a JSON archive of your tweets.” I’m already archiving mine another way, but a handy thing nonetheless.

  9. SWFUpload jQuery Plugin : Adam Royle

    A nice jQuery way to implement the SWFUpload thingummy. (via Yoz)

  10. jQuery slideViewer 1.1

    Wonderfully simple looking javascript slideshow thing. (via Infovore)

    Quite handy, although I wish it gave the option to display the Color Values in CSS friendly hex too. (via Daring Fireball)

  12. Cufón - fonts for the people

    A way to do pretty fonts nicely in web pages other than sIFR. (I haven’t tried it.)

    Another simple, pretty bug tracking web app thingummy.

  14. Simple Bug and Issue Tracking | Sifter

    Looks pretty and simple which is always a bonus.

    John Resig, the chap behind jQuery, wondering (like many people I imagine) why the BBC wrote its own bespoke JavaScript framework. (via Haddock)

  16. Piwik - Web analytics - Open source

    An open source, locally-installable alternative to Google Analytics. Looks rather good. (via Yoz)

  17. Bitquabit - The One in Which I Call Out Hacker News

    Aside from being specifically about people who think they can rewrite StackOverflow in a weekend, great as an example of where the complexity lies in a website. (via Blech)

  18. The 1KB CSS Grid by Tyler Tate :: A simple, lightweight approach

    As simple as a grid-based CSS framework thing could be. (via Infovore)

  21. Code: Flickr Developer Blog » Flickr Shapefiles Public Dataset 1.0

    I keep seeing cool code stuff whizz by and I’m not making anything with it. May need to ringfence time from other commitments just to *do* something.

  22. Simonw’s geocoders at master - GitHub

    Python “code for accessing various geocoding web services with an ultra simple API”. Sounds good.

  23. Bits & Pixels – Blog Archive – Cross-browser transparent columns

    How to make the background of a block semi-transparent but have the content opaque. Bit of a palaver, but it works.

  27. The Unstandard Demo

    Another nice WordPress theme. Uses images for the front page.

  28. Grid Focus Demo

    Nice clean WordPress template (with slightly annoying slidy social bookmarking panel).

  29. How to: create a wiki with Drupal | Cwgordon7’s blog

    Drupal was quite lovely and easy to install, if complicated. But the wiki still felt a bit “not quite right” somehow.

  30. HOWTO/Install MoinMoin On Dreamhost - Mitch’s Wiki

    The official MoinMoin wiki installation instructions are a confusing nightmare and failed me. These, on the other hand, just worked (even on a non-Dreamhost shared host). Still seems much, much more complex than an install should be.

  31. WikiMatrix - Compare them all

    Compare loads of features of loads of wikis.

  32. All Things Seen and Unseen » Similar Posts

    WordPress plugin for doing “more posts like this” stuff. Sounds well done. (via Infovore)

    Some maths, which I’m assuming is good. (via Infovore)

    Doug Bowman on how buttons were developed on Google apps. Good HTML/CSS cleverness. (via Simon Willison)

    Another CMS… imitating Userland Frontier. I can’t decide if this is brilliance and/or madness. (via Daring Fireball)

  40. Nanoc: a Ruby CMS that generates static HTML » home

    Another little CMS. “runs on your local computer and compiles Markdown, Textile, Haml, etc. documents into static web pages, ready for uploading to any web host.” (via Daring Fireball)

  41. Webby :: Webby

    Mini CMS in Ruby. Mainly just converts text into web pages using a variety of templating languages. (via Daring Fireball)

  42. TDO Mini Forms Wordpress Plugin (v0.12.6) [thedeadone.net]

    Very flexible plugin that lets you create custom forms which create new WordPress posts with their data. Confusing and ugly UI, but nicely powerful.

  43. Google Open Source Blog: Google Blog Converters 1.0 Released

    Excellent - scripts to convert between Blogger, LiveJournal, MovableType and WordPress. I reckon every single online service should have an “Export” button and nag you if you haven’t backed-up in a while. (via Tom Taylor)
