The Week: 17th September 2018

A summary of my week in projects, posts, and pins. This is probably as much for my benefit as anything, but let me know if you find it interesting or helpful. Use the comments – I’m happy to tweak the format to make it more useful for others.

Projects: what I’ve been up to

  • The big job this week was a small project to develop a branch lookup system for a client who uses lots of Ninja Forms.  The branch lookup will need to work on multiple forms, so I’m extending Ninja Forms with a custom field that can be used wherever it is needed.

    This has involved working out the existing data structures, creating an API for doing the lookups, and building the form element. I got a but stuck, because, while Ninja Forms has a good reputation, I’ve found the developer documentation a bit lacking. More next week!
  • I’m working with a local community organisation on a new website. This is a project that has been on and off for a while and I’m determined to get stuck into it. There was some WordPress plugin finding/testing, some WP-CLI commands to do some custom data importing and processing and some general WordPress work.
  • I have an ongoing piece of work updating a Laravel/Vue Project that got some more updating based on testing and feedback.
