WTFFY API

Announcing WTFFY API.

This API library is a work in progress, written for a specific project, but it may be of some use to you.

Currently it can pull and cache JSON feeds for:

  • Wordpress
  • Twitter
  • Facebook
  • Flickr
  • YouTube

It’s php based and uses the Slim framework. It’s not extremely robust at the moment, but it gets the job done.

“If you can’t be a good example, then you’ll just have to be a horrible warning.”

OS X should have an iOS mode

There are many iOS apps I would love to have available to me on OS X, but the one that sparked this thought is Drafts. Drafts is fantastic for many reasons, but for the uninitiated you should check out the many fine articles written about this app.

I asked the author of Drafts if he was working on a Mac version, his answer was “not in the short term”. Heartbreaking. Drafts is so close to being a final solution for many things, it just needs the desktop companion to be complete.

I would settle for Drafts running in emulation, if the emulator were decent; and Apple is so close to this already. The iOS emulator from Xcode runs well, just get rid of the iPhone graphic wrapping it and let me use my Magic Mouse or trackpad as the touch interface and we’re there.

Imagine if you could have your favorite iOS apps on your Mac. This would also be a great selling point for developers who don’t have the resources to produce desktop app versions.

Think about it.
