I have to say creating beautiful watchfaces is addictive. I had to create a new one, now a replica. I’ve found a Gucci watch I would love to have – but as a smartwatch. Creating it was fun, having it pure joy. See watchfaces page for details.
- Pebble smartwatch projects ShoOne A simple watchface ShoOne watchface for Pebble Smartwatch. This watchface is tailored to my taste. Analog watch with no second handle, rounded and distinguishable minute and hour handles, day of the week, day of the month, bluetooth connection vibration alert and display, battery and battery percentage, digital time display on the bottom, 3 and 9 o’clock digits for readability, so everything I need. Probably everything you will need and like.
- Rewriting software is good. Code katas are good. Painful but good. Implementing the PIM on one platform and reimplementing it on a different one is especially painful. Implementing API instead of direct database connection feels nice though. As well as having an established framework like Symfony2. I had no real problem with the other one but when I will have to support it longer than the support will be available for the framework, sounds like a good idea to just switch – and learn everything again.
- In the past few weeks I have been working on the PIM (Product Management System) for my Magento instance. With the current setup we can work on the products without having to touch Magento admin. Product data is versioned and synchronised both ways on every PIM product list display – this is not optimal but works well, I will probably create a cron job. Attributes and attribute sets are also synchronised, CRUD is ready but I don’t want to show it on the frontend.
