The photoset option is up there as one of my favorite features on Tumblr, but the default photoset grid that Tumblr generates does not resize and play well with all of our Style Hatch theme’s responsive layouts. As a result we created our own resizable photoset grid jQuery plugin that we rolled out last year.
I recently took the time to clean up the plugin, write documentation, and put together a demo showing how it works. The jQuery photoset grid plugin can be integrated into Tumblr themes, but it’s designed to work outside of Tumblr as well.
Feel free to open issues, fork it, and submit pull requests!
I’m excited to announce that I was invited to speak at Valio Con 2012 in San Diego this summer. Drew Wilson and the Valio Con team have put together an amazing line-up of speakers that I am looking forward to hearing.
Last year’s Valio Con was by far the best web and design conference I have attended in quite a while. This year the conference takes place June 7-10th at the Hyatt Mission Bay resort in San Diego. The $999 conference pass includes three nights hotel stay, beach bonfires, breakfast, local catered lunches and a chance to hang out with some of the best designers and developers our industry.
Check out the Valio Con 2012 site for more details.
A visual collection of work by Robert Hodgin a.k.a. Flight404, founding partner of The Barbarian Group and co-creator of the Cinder C++ Framework. All of the work in the reel was programmatically created with Processing and Cinder.
If you have ever turned on the visualization mode in iTunes then you have seen his work.
Artist and programmer Marcin Ignac created these Haeckel-inspired randomly generated algorithmic creatures using Cinder—the cross-platform, open-source C++ toolkit created by the brilliant minds at The Barbarian Group. Cinder was developed for creative coding applications for Windows, Mac and iOS devices, and is being used to generate fictional organisms, provide visuals for Peter Gabriel’s latest tour, create the augmented reality for Esquire magazine, and much more.
Stay up to date with the Cinder library and see the latest features added in Cinder 0.8.2.
