Ztype is a well done typing game that I stumbled across a couple weeks ago via Chrome Experiements. I wanted to see if something similar could be done with flanvas. The prototype can be seen at http://flanvas.com/development/ztype-remix/index.html

I've brushed off the dust of last years flanvas projects and I'm on it again. I'm ramping it up for use with a project I'm going to be helping on that will heavily benefit from something like flanvas.

 

Today I was perusing chromeexperiments.com and re-took account of all the talented developers out there. People have so many clever ideas and it's amazing some of the things they cook up. Here is my personal favorite of the day.

I decided I'm going to make a class for the Flash TextField which lets you animate the garbage out of it. I've already got some simple animations for text fields but I want to get nuts. The biggest thing it will do is break text up from a chunk into individual characters which you can then freely animate using a tweener. It's going to be fun.

I just put together a short article on how you can load files via javascript from another domain. This doesn't seem to be anything new, but it hasn't been pronounced to all webbies yet so I'm here helping to push it across. You can check out the Cross-domain XHR article here

I flew into Utah last weekend and have been accompanied by sinus issues for a good week now. For unknown reasons, that has reminded me that I need to promote my classical inheritance in javascript. I've searched around and haven't found anything like it on the web. I'm not trying to toot my own horn, I just see that there's some value in js oop and it needs to be shared with my fellow webbies. There's plenty of prototype oop, but none where you can run the parent's super on the child. If I haven't lost you yet, please read my OOP for JavaScript article.
