Back in January, I wrote about SublimeTODO, a package for Sublime Text that searches files in your project for a set of keywords in comments, and shows them in one nice, navigable list. The version I wrote about was for Sublime Text 2, but I now use Sublime Text 3. The plugin I wrote about didn’t really work with ST2, to the author deprecated it and now recommends a newer updated version which does work with ST3.
I thought f the original plugin author has admitted defeat and recommend another plugin, I should quickly write a post about the new plugin. Here goes!
You’re a busy developer (probably), so here’s a list of what you need to know:
Earlier this year, whilst visiting the good people at Karoshi, they showed me a prototype of a 2014 World Cup calendar poster. It looked brilliant. A little later, they had finalised the design and packaging – you can see more of that here.
They asked me if I’d be interested in making a digital version. Having worked with Karoshi on numerous occasions before, I knew it would be an interesting project. Given that this was a project for love, not money, it meant I could experiment a bit more, as paid-for time just wasn’t a factor.
It was agreed early on to only support modern browsers, so I chose IE10 & up, and other modern browsers. Or more to the point, anything that supported CSS flexbox, without a polyfill.
The list of requirements, technologies and processes were as follows:
Modern browser support
All content must easily be updatable wherever I am
Must be very light-weight, so no CMS and flat-file generation
Work as an iOS home screen web app
Can shoose your team colours
Ability to change time zone
Meta data for Facebook & Twitter Cards.
The process to update content is quite simple now.
Log into FTP (desktop or mobile)
Edit text or scores in various .yaml files
Go to the build page which regenerates the updated site
The only thing that isn’t generated on the server is Sass, which I do locally. Any visual changes I want to test locally anyway, so I don’t really see this as an issue.
So, yeah, head over to brazilfourteen.com and take a look. It works great as a home screen app too, if that’s your thing.
