M3talinks for Apr 12th

Today’s M3talinks for Apr 12th

  • WordOff – Wordoff applies the following rules to strip the cruft that is pasted into WYSIWYG editors from Word:<br />
    <br />
    * Attributes are removed for all elements except <a>s<br />
    * <span>s and <div>s are removed<br />
    * Empty elements are removed<br />
    * Consecutive line breaks are reduced to two<br />
    <br />
    Wordoff is written in Python and runs on Django in Google App Engine. It was designed as a demonstration project for a short talk at Oxford Geek Nights.
  • About | Designing User Experience – When I grow up I want to be a technical writer, web developer, user experience designer, information architect, and an instructional designer for adult education. <br />
    <br />
    I just want to start learning information through osmosis. I’d like to be a brilliant expert by tomorrow, please. And I spend about $2000 a year buying books in an effort to become one someday. I want to be buried with my web design library, and if Heaven doesn’t have an O’Reilly or Sitepoint warehouse, I’m afraid I can do without it.<br />
    <br />
    Take an enthusiastic, ambitious, overzealous, and at times hyper student of just about everything, and give her a copy of WordPress and a domain. This is what you end up with.

  • GridMove – DonationCoder.com – GridMove is a program that aims at making windows management easier. It helps you with this task by defining a visual grid on your desktop, to which you can easily snap windows. This program comes bundled with some predefined grid templates, that can be easily swaped, but also has ways of creating custom grids or sharing grids made by others.<br />
    <br />
    GridMove makes moving windows, resizing windows, displaying them on cascade or on mosaic, making them on top or anything you can think of as easy as drag and drop.<br />
    <br />
    This tool was made taking in mind those who own big screens and keep organizing their windows. This program is specially useful for anyone that keeps more than 1 window on the screen at one time, because it helps the user to maximize the usable space of the monitor, by resizing the windows in a much easier way than moving and resizing them one by one.<br />
    <br />
    Thanks to its simple interaction methods, GridMove becomes intuitive and fast, helping you to improve your workflow.
