I’m working on the Wikipedia search project. I’m almost finished with getting the search working the way I should. Or I did get it working like it should, but I wanted to add a little picture thumbnail next to each search result so that’s taken some extra figuring out.
Once I’m finished with that I’ll start doing some sketches of what I want the search results to look like. I was thinking of something card based. For layout I’m challenging myself to use Flexbox. It seems like a very powerful yet simple framework so I want to learn it.
I also agreed to work on a photography portfolio for a freelance photographer in exchange for some promo pics. Today I was learning how to set up for building a custom wordpress site. I have the basics figured out and a work environment set up (using Atom) so now I can get into designing it. During that project I want to try out parallax scrolling and the subtle slide-in animations when scrolling down that seem popular these days. Here’s an example of the latter.
The Taproot Agency site also has a nice effect with the dark boxes behind elements. I think they achieve them using element:after, and I want to figure how to do it myself
And then there’s the blog I want to start for myself… I’m working on a post for how to gamify your learning process. I did one post on how to overcome the barrier to coming up with new ideas. The next post will hopefully be even better
I signed up to receive new posts you put on your blog via email. Not sure if it will do that for updated posts. Perhaps you could just write a new post?
