Well, I worked on Gridder in my spare time.
- Researching the technologies I can use to advance Gridder has introduced me to CSS3 and HTML5 technologies valuable to client work.
- It reminds me that implementing technology is a creative process. I come from a Digital Fine Art background and Gridder is nostalgic to me.
So is Gridder Finished?
Nope, hopefully I’ll be able develop this more as there’s a ton of functionality I’d love to add:
- The ability to save Grids via HTML5 Local Storage and share via Facebook and Twitter.
- Intelligent resizing using CSS3 Media Queries, optimize the user experience for mobile browsing and wrap it up into an iPhone & Android App.
- Animations & transitions using jQuery’s fantastic Effect Methods or perhaps via CSS3 transitions.
Ok, So Why Post This Now?
Well, I enjoyed knocking this together in a few hours and it’s a little trip down memory lane. It’s good to look back to remind yourself how far what you’ve learnt and how much more there is still to learn. Besides, I find Gridder quite fun! You might too. Feel free to hack it, break it, re-blog it. Let me know if you do anything cool with it.
