Binary Trance Software
Through my app development company Binary Trance Software I’ve built the following apps:
- SymbolMate – Quickly find and copy symbols and Emoji
A couple of other websites I maintain are:
- Linked List – “a semi-organized collection of knowledge that I have accumulated.”, created as a reference for myself but also published publically in the hope it may be useful to others as well. The code (pkb) is open source.
- Bit Cannon – a new blog that I designed and built with Hugo as a bit of an experiment, the exact nature of which is still evolving.
Open Source Projects
I have a collection of open-source software on GitHub. Some of the more noteworthy projects are listed below.
monothumb is the tool that generates the thumbnails on the home page. It retrieves thumbnails of my recent uploads to Flickr, converts them to greyscale and then generates a single output image with both the colour and monochrome versions of the thumbnail. There are two version of the tool. The original one, written in Objective-C that uses CoreImage and a second version written in Lua. The Lua one uses my lua-imlib2 fork.
I previously had a weather station at my home for keeping track of the local conditions. I added support for SQLite logging to my fork of the Open2300 project. The weather station was connected to a Mac for data logging. Every 5 minutes it logged the current conditions, uploaded them to my server and invoked a lua program to generate a JSON file, which was used to produce the Weather page.
See the following posts for more information on the weather station:
