A bit of my personal life, mainly focused on my kids. A bit of code, mainly focused on Wordpress and PHP. Overall, bits of nothing in particular.

WordCamp Paris slides: Unit Tests for WordPress plugins

Mon, 26 Jan 2015 15:01:09 +0000

Last week-end I gave a talk at WordCamp Paris, about the exciting topic of Unit Tests for WordPress plugins (are you excited already?). I think I'll write a short blog post about it in the next few days ; I'll also write a series of post about unit testing, because that subject is so exciting […]

Revisiting WordPress smilies in a pure CSS way

Sat, 20 Dec 2014 17:32:28 +0000

Last night I was reading something interesting then stumbled, in the comments, on a WordPress smiley. Bleeeh. There's a reason one of the first things I do when I setup a new site is uncheck "Convert emoticons like :-) and :-P to graphics on display": 90's phpBB'esque blocky gifs are *ugly*. WordPress 4.2 Roadmap Wish: […]

WordPress plugin banner as a .PSD

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 16:19:21 +0000

I recently felt like making a few banners for my plugins. First questions that came to mind: "what's the name of the file again? what dimensions?". And then, while making stuff: "will this be hidden by the plugin's title?" So, I made this simple banner template as a Photoshop PSD file. Nothing genius but feel […]

My WordPress plugins are on Github. Fancy a Pull Request?

Tue, 17 Jun 2014 17:02:14 +0000

I released a number of WordPress plugins over the last 10 years ("24 plugins and 1,062,110 downloads", says my fun bookmarklet) and they all mostly fall in one of these three categories: Outdated stuff that are no longer maintained because I don't need them anymore Simple stuff that don't require any maintenance because they just […]

Archive your tweets with WordPress

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 13:45:52 +0000

Twitter is fun and catchy, but the thing is: once tweeted, gone forever. Found an awesome link last month, shared it with a relevant #hashtag? Good luck finding it now. Your data now lives and dies on Twitter and you have no hand on it. Four years ago to address this problem I made yet-another-Twitter-to-WordPress […]

Why WordPress should drop PHP 5.2

Wed, 22 Jan 2014 17:04:38 +0000

There's a recurring debate about WordPress and whether they should keep code compatible with PHP 5.2 or drop it and bump the requirements to a newer PHP version. Hey, I have an opinion on this. What's wrong with PHP 5.2? Nothing much, except PHP 5.2 was released in November 2006, and was maintained and developed […]

What your Github profile says about you

Mon, 13 Jan 2014 14:15:59 +0000

I've always had a fascination for Github timeline graphs since they released it. It's simple and pretty and potentially meaningful (and fits nicely on a geek tshirt). Yes, it may say things about you. The following is an attempt at decrypting what a few actual Github timelines say, or might say, or don't say at […]

Generate Github-like contribution graph – for fun and for t-shirts

Tue, 04 Jun 2013 16:41:46 +0000

I really like how Github displays your yearly code contributions, in that 52×7 green dot matrix. It's cute, informative, and has become iconic enough that any nerd knows what it refers to. I like it so I funcoded a script that will deliver a message after 365 days of running — fun, but kinda slow, […]

One million !

Sat, 25 May 2013 17:51:50 +0000

As of writing, the 26 WordPress plugins I have hosted on have been downloaded one million times. Of course this is mostly due to my most popular plugin, Admin Drop Down Menu, which has been downloaded more than 700,000 times over the last 6 years, but this is a cool mark anyway. Is there […]

One year younger than WordPress

Tue, 07 May 2013 07:30:23 +0000

A quick ping today by Jeff Chandler reminded me that nine years ago this blog started running on WordPress. Time flies when you're worry-free :) So, before everyone celebrates WordPress' 10 years birthday, I'll blow a few candles first: happy 9th birthday planetOzh :) (cc) Ozh for planetOzh, 2013. | Permalink | 2 comments | […]
