Wicked Opinionated WordPress Plugin: Concatenate Assets

An area that could have used some modification in my workflow is the optimization of third party assets when building WordPress sites. Those stylesheets and JavaScripts that make additional HTTP calls we’ve come to know and hate. There are a ton of existing solutions out there, but I wanted something a bit more… finicky and custom-tailored to my approach.

I just installed this plugin to give it a whirl. I’m not sure how directly useful it will prove over time, and in fact may be more distracting than not, but I’ve gotten good about doing diff reviews before every commit and I’m hoping this adds a ‘glance’ level to help that process even more. […]

Linkmarklet at version 0.4

BaseDemo – HorizontalNav. HorizontalNav is a jQuery plugin that does what’s on the tin. Navigation systems are arguably the most important element of Web design (opinion: mine) and I’ve built more horizontal navigation systems than I’d care to count. Each one had it’s own unique flare which acted as a solid foundation for my embracing […]

New WordPress Plugin: Duplicate Menu

It’s been some time since I’ve built a WordPress plugin out of necessity, especially one this niche. At first it may come off as a really odd plugin to even bother writing, but I think my use cases made it worth the effort.
