heartthrob: the fluent design framework to the web

Today I’m releasing the heartthrob framework can add more elegancy to your project, to looks like the Microsoft Fluent Design design, it was also inspired by Michael West – an incredible designer who will dominate the world with his ideas.

Built, since 2016, from scrath with bare CSS – and JavaScript, it uses the grid system for responsive websites based in Bootstrap 3, the idea is to have a start for when you need to develop a solution for your company or for yourself, it’s clean, simple, easy and still small.

The ideia behind this project is to make it as simple as possible for new developers, and agencys that creates several websites a month, by making it simple to study, contribute and modify. It also does a lot of automatic functions without you needing to spend too much time in it.

Perfect for dashboards: I built and use heartthrob in several dashboards and CMSs in several startups and corporate systems.
More to share about this soon.

Bootstrap grid system: One of the key points of heartthrob is using the same bootstrap grid, with a tool that you have more control.
It also has a lot of compatibility with any website using bootstrap since we used a lot of similiar classes names.

Kendo ui compatibility: Inside heartthrob you will find a kendo.heartthrob css file, that can add all the work made in this framework to the kendo interface. This looks pretty good for grids, dropdowns, scheduler and other inputs. under development.

Take a look on the documentation to see what heartthrob can do it for you.

contribute: let’s build it together

I and my team are using it in the solutions we build every single day, so expect nice fixes and small additions as it will be more and more compatible with Kendo and other browsers.

I’m more than open to have contributions to this project, so go to the GitHub page to help me make it even better!

NOTE: Heartthrob isn’t ready for mobile, I invite you to create a pull request with some fixes for mobile, especially on the header and on the content.

#TrueOrDare and #NeverEver no longer available for download

Once upon a time, there was two apps, made for drunk people. Now they are resting in peace, I already told the reason here. You won’t be able to download any update and to found them on the Store.

All the source of this apps is in my GitHub and you are more than welcome to look at it, change it, and create new things. It isn’t impossible that they are going to be published again, but not my plans. Feel free to change it and use it.

They are under project Terre, USA. #NeverEver is Pasadena Project and #TrueOrDare is Las Vegas Project.

But why they are going to be dead? Simple: not time enough for them. That’s makes me sad too.

I hope you understand. Sorry.

Let’s go Opensource

I am happy to announce that today, every of my app is now open source and you can help me improve all of this amazing apps. I spend the last days moving all of the codes from VSTS to Git. Why? Only one reason: to be open source.

When I moved this project, I also made a lot of changes in it, so it would be easy for every one outside the project be able to understand it and create a push request.

Since the beginning of the year I was thinking about it, and a few days ago, a friend of mine, Mario, posted in his Twitter account that he wanted to send at least one code for day to his GitHub. Looking to it, I decided to move all my codes to GitHub. Well, not all of it.

You can found my repository in GitHub.com/vtnorton/Terre, in the next days I will make a documentation for it. 😉

That’s all folks!

Livecoding.tv: let’s stream everything!

Last year I discovered a website and started to love it. livecoding.tv. What is that? Well, if you look to the video content that is coming to youtube, you are going to discovery that now, more than ever, it is streaming contents. Games, talks, events, everything (and by everything you know what I’m talking about)! But why not the devs? The guys who made it possible, who build every stream platform has to be able to stream it too. And that is what livecoding is about.

It started with a simple way to stream your work and chat with the people that is watching it and you figure out that they start to help you, sending feedback. And in the last months they introduced the opportunity for paid channels, for hiring devs and many other features.

But only this week I start to stream. And I’m in love with it. The way I worked before as on my own, opening every site I could imagine (Facebook and Twitter on top of everything), and moving to others projects. Streaming helps me to be more time in front of a PC and coding. Helps me getting some energy and be more productive. So, my tip for you today is: if you are working on a open source project or if you have authorization for doing so, do it. You will love it like I do.

And, by the way, their twitter send information about what’s currently streaming. They have a really helpful and attentive support.

And, no, they didn’t paid me anything for this post. 🙂

Here are the links for you:

OpenSource project: PeopleTileInsideApp

I like to start new projects, sometimes just for fun. I have a folder called YOLO, and it is reserved for this fun projects. I pretend to make every project in this folder opensource. But for now, PeopleTileInsideApp is the first. Let me talk a little bit about it.

Well, it is a weekend work for building the same tile that Windows 10 has in People app, with the circular photo of your contacts and animation, but built it inside one app.

What is done?

The wide tile is done. But still have a lot o work in this part.

What is missing?

There is a lot of work to do in the Wide tile. Talking about animation. I tried for a lot of hours, but I can’t spend more time on this for now. After including animation in the wide tile, it will need to create a Small and Large tile.

So I put in the opensource because everyone who is interested in using it is allowed to use it. And because, as you can see, there is a lot to do.

You can found it in my GitHub repository (note that there is a link for my repository on top of my website), in this link: https://github.com/vtnorton/PeopleTileInsideApp/. Feel free to change it, use it or whatever you want.

Quizz: sistema de perguntas e respostas para Universal Apps

Sistema de perguntas e resposta simples, feito em 5 horas, para um trabalho da faculdade. Este projeto não foi feito para ser publicado oficialmente. Consiste em uma tela com uma pergunta e quatro alternativas, onde o grupo A ou B, que é decidido através da forma que o orador desejar, tem a chance de responder. Se a resposta estiver correta, ponto para o grupo, se estiver errada o ponto vai para o outro grupo.

O sistema é bem simples, não há conexão com banco de dados, e as perguntas estão no código principal, que tem lugar para 10 perguntas, podendo ser estendido.

Na tela principal nos temos três botões escondidos, dois logo abaixo do nome dos grupos, onde no clique é verificada a resposta e computado os pontos (primeiro é necessário selecionar a opção). E um terceiro botão escondido no topo da tela, para ir para a próxima pergunta. Você deve estar se perguntando, por que escondidos? Simples, apresentei esse questionário para toda a turma e eles não precisaram ver os botões.

O aplicativo foi feito para Windows Universal Apps, e foi testado posteriormente em um Lumia 1520, porém o design não está preparado para celulares (visto que o projeto foi feito para rodar em um computador muito especifico: o meu).

Há muito o que melhorar, porém não vou dar continuidade a este projeto já que ele cumpriu com o seu dever.
O projeto está atualmente no meu repositório no github no qual se você quiser utilizar ou melhora-lo, está muito bem vindo.

A propósito: esta é minha primeira solução em código-fonte aberto. Mais algumas virão pela frente.
