Chad, 22 Tools for Testing Your Websites Usability
One thing that we here at Code Greene have been trying to do is pushing our limits by getting faster and better at development. But with this we have realized that we need to help the pursued the client to get the best site they can. These clients come to us with an idea and they know their industry well, but it is our job and responsibility to take their ideas and build it in a way that is needed to give the end user what they want and need quickly.
Luke, Analytiks iPhone App
A little while ago I stumbled upon this little app for my iPhone. For those of us that don’t sign in to our Google Analytics often but know we should this app will be very valuable. Analytiks shows me just the important information I’d like to know about my websites on my phone. I can check it quick and get back to whatever else is going on that day. The interface is quite nice. I would ditch the rusted sign look myself but other than that it is fantastic. It is 99 cents in the app store.
It’s not much in the way of content, but the way that content is displayed. It’s simple… yet eye catching and very intriguing. Makes me very excited about where the web is heading.

I recently read a series of articles on smart phones and tablet devices in The Economist and saw some pretty interesting statistics. Smart phone use worldwide is projected to grow 20x in the next 8 years from 1 to 20 Billion, and right now 1 in 4 Americans have smart phones. Tablet devices are likewise expected to grow really fast as well

. On a small side note, I initially thought, how can the iPad be really any different than an iPhone when they mostly run the same apps? But everyone I talk to seems to feel the larger experience is a reinvention they love, so I anticipate a lot of growth here as well.
What all this has meant to us at Code Greene is that finally more and more of our customers are asking us to design and build for these devices in addition to regular browsers. It has been our philosophy to not venture down dark and lonely roads, so we will often sit back a little to see where new technologies are headed before diving into a pool with potentially only one foot of water in it. Admittedly there have been times we’ve missed waves, but there are other times we’ve ended up saving ourselves a lot of wasted energy. We are at the point that cross device compatibility is now a well lit path we are going to travel on. continue reading “how to win your boyfriend back”

Rare Method came to us with a specific need for their client 3M. They wanted to have a website built that felt like a native iPad app but without the development costs and time associated with building a native iPad app.
The need for this site stemmed from feedback from 3M sales reps. The reps didn’t want to continue to carry around heavy laptops to just show a couple of videos, so 3M provided iPads to accomplish this feat. Rare Method was involved in the execution and design and we provided a solution to their problem.
We knew the site would have a fixed height and width since this was only going to be on the iPad and not used anywhere else. We coded up the site and embedded the videos using the HTML5
<video> tag. There were advantages to this but also disadvantages. If the rep was in a spot with shady WiFi or typical AT&T coverage, then the videos would load slowly.
We also built other pages the reps could use in their sales pitch as well as a contact form that the client could fill out if they were interested.

The code on this post has been updated. View here to get the latest.
In my previous post I talked about what I have been doing to my desktop the last little while. I had quite a few email or IM me asking about how the GeekTool scripts I used. Just take these scripts and copy the lines you want into the command area of a Geeklet. Most of these were written by Mac Newbold. Enjoy!
top -n1 -l1 | grep "Load Avg" | sed 's/.*usage: //; s/ user.*//;'
top -n1 -l1 | grep "Load Avg" | sed 's/.*user, //; s/ sys.*//;'
top -n1 -l1 | grep "Load Avg" | sed 's/.*sys, //; s/ idle.*//;'
top -n 1 -l 1 | grep PhysMem | sed 's/.* inactive, //; s/ used.*//;'
top -n 1 -l 1 | grep PhysMem | sed 's/.* used, //; s/ free.*//;'
AM / PM
curl --silent "http://xml.weather.yahoo.com/forecastrss?p=USUT0078&u=f" | grep -E '(Current Conditions:|F<BR)' | sed -e 's/Current Conditions://' -e 's/<br \/>//' -e 's/<b>//' -e 's/<\/b>//' -e 's/<BR \/>//' -e 's/<description>//' -e 's/<\/description>//'
Look for the ‘UT0078′ here and replace it with the city code you want to display. Get the city code by going to Yahoo Weather and searching for your city. Once found look in the url and you will see your city code at the end of the url.
Create a new Shell Geeklet and use this as the command:
curl --silent "http://weather.yahoo.com/forecast/USUT0078.html" | grep "forecast-icon" | sed "s/.*background\:url(\'\(.*\)\')\;\ _background.*/\1/" | xargs curl --silent -o /tmp/weather1.png\
Replace the city code with your city code. ( same steps to get city code as above )
Then create a new Image Geeklet and use this as the url:

So for a few weeks now I have been playing around with a themed desktop for my mac. I have always wanted to try something like this out just never had the guts or time. I have found that it isn’t scary at all and rather quick to get going. There are some free tools I have used and some nice things I have learned along the way.
Not having a dock at all has taken some getting used to. I use Quicksilver for just about everything now. I do have a pull down docklike thing at the top middle in case I ever need it. Here is a list of tools I have used to create my new desktop.
CandyBar – Change all the folders icons and HD icons.
Magnifique – Change the folder and App nav areas to black
GeekTool – Add time, weather, and computer status to the desktop.
GeekTool was by far the most fun. You can do much more with it than what I have done here. If you come up with something good for you I’d love to see it.

The only real gripe I have had about OSX is that when I have a file highlighted in the Finder I want to look at a glance somewhere to see where exactly that file is. I have actually had a couple discussions with others that have not switched to a Mac because of this. I just lived on wondering why this feature was not available. Then I stumbled upon this in my RSS reader. The good guys over at TUAW had an answer! Once enabled, this is what you will see in any open Finder window.
To get this working on your mac open a terminal (/Applications/Utilities/Terminal) and then paste in this script and press enter. You will have to restart Finder to see your new and improved window.
defaults write com.apple.finder _FXShowPosixPathInTitle -bool YES

As a front end guy I am always looking for ways to help our website look the same in all browsers. When FireFox 3 came out I was all excited for a new browser, however this also means that I would have yet another browser to test in until FireFox 2 phases out. I have noticed some small differences in how FF2 and FF3 render. I came across this little tool that lets me run both of them at the same time. It is called MultiFireFox. It will let you keep all your plug-ins for each version as well. That means that we can use fire bug on both version to help with debugging. I think this version is only for the Mac but for you PC users our there check this out. I’m not sure if there is anything like this for Linux.
