Random tinkerings

The other day I started another random little project. I’m actually very excited about this one because I know that I will be using it from time to time. The other reason I’m happy is because it can be a useful one for others as well.

For quite some time I’ve been doing a lot of support related things and I love it. I do. There are moments when I feel a little out of touch or behind but that’s probably imposter me thinking. Anyway, from time to time I have to share or ask to share some information and at times it can be a thing like a password. Now, there are some services available in the wild but at work it doesn’t always mean it would be a good thing.

The thing on that is that using a 3rd-party system can be sort of a bad thing since you don’t have control of the data. This can mean maybe creating your own version of said thing. Well I did that. I took a repo ( PrivateBin ) and am slowly building out a site for what I hope to be mostly internal use.

It was a little to get things up and running at first because this was somewhat new to me. I had to dive into some of the code to see how things work, which I haven’t done in a really long time. That’s the one thing I really do like doing too. The other part is getting it all styled to the way I would like. That’s the part I’m really looking forward to the most now. I have an idea of what to do and use so I’ll have to look at how to handle that. I did see the code and do understand how it gets loaded too so this really will be fun for me.

And the other part is also that I’m trying to follow that mini community as well and other projects that I try out or have so far. The other day I even tinkered with Stage and Sage because I wanted to understand more of how the framework did things. It was super neat to see how all the things loaded and how it broke. Yes, I broke things along the way.

It was fun doing that.

This project so far has been pretty fun. I’ll have to keep that momentum going too if I really want to get this fully going. The next thing is getting the template going. Time to open up Photoshop and Illustrator now.
