This post got lost in an avalanche of work. I wrote the first half around the time I finished up initial work on Compatible Post Sharing System WordPress plugin. The second half describes how it works and future development plans.March 20, 2014
The WordPress Export tool makes filters available to posts and pages but not to custom post types. I had a hard time finding code examples or documentation on this subject. After quite a bit of searching, I retrieved a page from the Wayback Machine that describes how to add date filters to a custom post type before exporting. It's a good starting point for adding all filters to all of a theme's custom post types.January 27, 2014
For a while now, I've been building Vagrant VMs the old fashioned way which has basically involved grabbing a Linux box from the good folks at Vagrant, sshing in, then running a handful of commands and tweaking a couple of config files. I work with straightforward LAMP and LEMP stacks, so I used to think this wasn't a problem. I was wrong.January 18, 2014
Over the holidays, I created a couple of WordPress plugin boilerplate templates. They implement the singleton class design pattern and the WordPress Settings API. They're available on Github now.January 11, 2014
I built a prototype of a random voltage generator using a Teensy 2.0. It's designed to interface with Eurorack Modular synthesizers but could be used with any synth that works with a 0 to 5V control voltage. I've included a sound clip, the source code, and a Fritzing sketch along with some thoughts on future plans for the circuit.
