This is the colour pallet I found and have been using to hand paint the normal maps for my sprites (Phaser.js). Its a little tedious, but, what'cha gonna do!?

Azir is latest champ I have been practicing with. He is one of the most powerful in the game, but really hard to learn. I have heard it said he has the hardest learning curve in the game!

Ooooo! I started working on my isoland game again. Top of the list, after moving to Phaser 3, was to test out some lighting and normal maps. I might look into writing my own frag shader later, that would take into account the isometric z axis. For now though, Im very pleased with how easy it was to get working.

After a 6 week wait, the MIDI Shield I should have purchased years ago has finally arrived! I assembled it, but unfortunately it didn't come with any pin connectors. I hope I have some stashed away somewhere. Though, considering I have to use this shield in conjunction with a Servo Shield, I doubt I will be able to stack it on top. We shall see!

Its May 26th, 2020, several months into lockdown. I have not done a ton in this time. Wasn't really motivated I suppose. For my birthday I selected a bunch of ST:CCG boxes and started making decks again. I spent close to two weeks this month just working on decks and playing solo games, improving the loosing deck after each battle.

Last night I decided it was time to do something else, packed up all the cards (though my boxes have still not come - I have that to still look forward to.. but LATER) and started going through my recovery hard drive to relocate my lost lossless techno collection. I guess it just jogged some memories and some goals; After such an extended period of doing virtually nothing, I feel like tackling one of my long term goals: jump-dance Gobo-matron.

I have day dreamed about making a dancing Gobo Arduino powered invention thinger-ma-bop for a number of years now. So, Im just going to DO IT!

Lets see how long a prototype takes me. Annnnd Go Gogo Gobo!

Woah, I just found and bounced an original concept, totally unpolished track, I wrote 10 years ago! Thats before I learned to DJ, before I fell in love with Raags and before I knew what side chaining and compression are! Mobot Two. Its quite terrible.

The Objx Theme Support sidebar provides quick options for theme developers to tap into.

Hiding the Title

I often want to remove the title on certain pages, without too much fuss. So, I added the Hide Title option (metakey 'objx_theme_no_title'), which you can use in your theme code.

To get this to work, you have to modify your themes template pages.

Open source plugins like Advanced Custom Fields and xxxx are great for quickly creating and editing new objects types within the WordPress's Admin interface. But how can we easily display those custom object types, without writing custom php theme code?

Objx Model Tokens embed dynamic data into your page.

There are already several query blocks out there that allow you to fetch custom query posts and display them in cards, or a grid, or a list. Unfortunately, the options for visual display are usually quite limiting in such blocks. The is no real way to truly customize the visual layout and specify what information should be displayed, especially when dealing with your own custom post types. Objx Model Tokens select information from your post and allow you to insert that information where you want, styled how you want!

The Objx QueryLoop

The content inside an objx QueryLoop is referred to as its template, and provides the objxItem token to select information for display from the currently iterated post.

{{objxItem:my_custom_field_name}}

Inside a query loop, we can use the objxItem token to refer to the currently looped item

Post Tokens

Since all custom post types are subclasses of Post, the following tokens are always available, no matter what custom post type we are referencing.

Working with Metadata

We can select and display any registered meta data value with the meta keyword.

objxItem:meta:custom-meta-key-name

Form Tokens

The Objx Form block provides the objxForm token (only available from within a form block) with the following keys:

  • objxForm:msg - Feed back message from the server, upon submission of the form
  • objxForm:loading - Used to display a spinner while the form is submitting
  • objxFormItem:custom-keys - Upon submission, the returned object is available using objxFormItem:

Similar to WordPress's Admin Tables, the Scheduler table is also extendable. Using the objxMobile_scheduler_attributes filter, we can add extra attributes to the table; Currently, only the extra aux_columns attribute is available). This code should go in your functions.php of your child theme.

In this example, I add a new Column "Assessment", and if the client of the appointment has a special metakey present, include a link to said assessment.

objxMobile_scheduler_attributes Filter

Here we specify a single custom column with the aux_columns key, and indicate assessmentHtml as the key to use on the displayed appointment object.

add_filter('objxMobile_scheduler_attributes', 'my_scheduler_atts_filter', 10, 1);
function my_scheduler_atts_filter($attributes){
   $attributes['aux_columns'] = [['label'=>'Assessment', 'key'=>'assessmentHtml']];
}

objxMobile_appointments Filter

Using this filter we get the client object for the appointment, check for our custom metakey, and then add it to the appointment using our assessmentHtml key.

add_filter('objxMobile_appointments', 'my_appointments_filter', 10, 1);
function my_appointments_filter($appointments){
   $attributes['aux_columns'] = [['label'=>'Assessment', 'key'=>'assessmentHtml']];
}
