Yup, finally got around to updating SliderCalc so that it will actually launch in iOS 9. Better than that, I’ve rebuilt it from the ground up with the Swift language and gave it a little facelift. Hopefully it will continue to bring laughter and joy to the many people of the world. Behold!
… and in that spirit, here’s a work in progress demo…
I just realized that all you need is your iPhone (or Android phone) and you can start exploring Virtual Reality thanks to Google Cardboard. These cheap headsets make it ridiculously cheap to explore. Check out what they have at KnoxLabs and let me know what you think.
After hacking together a new site I wanted to drop a note of all the things that ended up working to get it going. I think I’ve already forgotten the things that didn’t work or were quircky. Start with these and you’re most of the way there. Here we go…
WP Example Content – so you can have some content to test with
WP Custom Header Footer – add google analytics to it
Simple Header Footer HTML – to add favicons, google analytics, etc
Social Media Feather – to add sharing links to posts and pages
Contact Form 7 – so people can reach you
Really Simple CAPTCHA – so spambots hopefully won’t reach you
Random Featured Image – because most posts look better with a featured image
Quick Adsense – because googles plugin is kind of demanding. This one is nice.
Easy WP SMTP – because sometimes you just can’t count on WP mail working
Breadcrumb NavXT – some themes seem to like it
I think that’s everything. Of course setting up Akismet and Jetpack is a good idea as well.
