Fisher Innovation Labs
During the process of project R&D, tests and prototypes are created to not only better understand the technology used, but ease the development process as well. Since these small prototypes and examples can be of use in other projects and learning examples, many of them have been externalized and placed within their own open source repository. Feel free to explore and contribute to any of these small projects and prototypes.
CronWeb is a responsive HTML5/PHP crontab manager. Rather then dealing with criptic crontab time syntax and script reference by hand, this simple and straight forward web interface allows you to easily add and remove cronjobs on your system in seconds.
PLA Status Check
After getting tired of constantly checking the website of a local 3D printing supply shop, I decided to write a quick Python snippet to check the status of the material I wanted and display it in an easy to read command line interface. Although this project may not be suited for your needs, this example of scraping HTML webpages and reading data within easily converted to any other application.
auto-lessphp is a simple script which will automatically compile your LESS source with lessphp. Compiling is only performed when the LESS source has a file modification date stamp which is later then the compiled CSS source files from the previous compile.
Sorting Algorithms Sandbox
In order to test and better understand using some common sorting methods in various programming languages, I have set up a repo on GitHub to contain random sorting benchmark scripts for testing.
Wikipedia Sentence Crawler
In need of a huge database of english sentences for another project, I wrote this Python class to crawl Wikipedia indefinitely and log all sentences from within the articles it finds. The code lives in its own GitHub repo so feel free to check it out and Fork it for your own usage!
Wanting to learn how GPS data works, during the summer of 2011 I wrote code to transfer my GPS data from my Android phone to Google Maps I could view on the web. GPX2GMaps is a simple script to take raw GPX files from GPS logs, parse the data and output the waypoints on a Google Maps display.
Reddit Video Wall
Being that the 'videos' subreddit is one of my favorite places to waste time on the Internet, I decided to quickly put together a simple web interface to allow you to sit back and enjoy the Youtube videos that are currently popular on Reddit. This demo, if opened in Google Chrome, will utilize an available webcam to allow for you to move from one video to another, with just the swipe of your arm. Sit back, relax and enjoy the best the Internet has to offer.
