crankSlider the Jquery DIV and Image Slider Script

Categories :: Javascript, Tools

I was looking for a simple Jquery DIV slider the other day and took a while before I found anything but they were too heavy and clunky. I just decided the best way was to write my own. Sometimes you may want a slider for not just images but for Divs as well, that way you can include other elements inside the div or create more animations inside.

Without further ado head over here to grab the crankSlider Jquery Div and Image Slider.

USB for web developer

Categories :: Tools, Web Development

The other day I was working on a friend's machine, and since he didn't have the tools and programs I needed to commence my crazy development, I had to whip out my "stick". My USB stick that is. I plugged it in, and within minutes I was slicing, coding, and uploading. He asked me, "how'd you do that?". All I could reply was, "magic", but in fact you all might know by now, it's not magic. I have kept a USB with me for the last few years that has kept programs for mobile web development work. Today I will share with you the apps I have installed.

Automated MySQL database backup with PHP and cronjob

Categories :: PHP, Tools, Web Owners

At some point of working on your website you'll want to back up you MySQL database. This is they key for all of you building dynamic sites. If one day your server goes down or something you may have the files backed up but without the database you'll have to start from scratch again. If you operate a very slow-paced site then manual back up is fine but if you want to backup your database daily then it becomes tedious. I, myself is lazy so I came up with a PHP and Cronjob solution to automatically backup MySQL database.

Categories :: Tools, Web Design

Its not like it hasn't been done before, but here it is again, my take on the Online Favicon Generator/Converter. It was just a fun project I was working on myself. Here's a free tool for you to create, edit and save your favicon. Supporting image formats such as PNG, GIF, BMP, JPG, and ICO files. There's also some simple tools for you to make some quick edits without firing up the Ol'Photoshop. Go ahead and try it out, create your own favicon.

CSS rounded corners with borders

Categories :: CSS, Tools

An upgrade has been made to my CSS rounded corners generator, now not only does it use no images, cross browser compliant but now with additional borders option. Add that all up and you have a cross browser, no image, bordered CSS rounded corners generator. Of course that name is too long so we'll just stick with the old one.
