Working on an HTML/Offline Version of Google’s Newly Open Sourced 20thingsilearned (20 Things I Learned about Browsers and the Web)

| Permalink

So today I checked out the newly open sourced 20thingsilearned, the code to 20 Things I Learned.com. I just wanted to give it a look over and see if I could get it into some kind of format that I could use to create my own. I checked out the svn (I even setup a virtual machine with Linux so that I could do the svn checkout; I will be posting the screencast later!), but it is powered by the Google App Engine. So, I hacked away this afternoon and have a semi-working offline-able copy of 20thingsilearned (the only problem, so far, is the very first page).

I am going to keep working on it and turning it into something non-App Engine powered (good ‘ol HTML, CSS, and JavaScript) so we can all play with it and do new things. I am going to, at some point (I mentioned I just started with svn) host this on Google Code, especially when I get it matured. But, since I’m not a selfish horder…
