1. page watch

    Tue 20 January 2015 By jarv

    This is probably my last side project before I relocate and start my new job, presenting page-watch. I created it to scratch a personal itch that I had which was I was finding it difficult to track changes on websites that were relatively static with infrequent updates. There are other page monitoring web tools out there, what makes this one different is that it is a) dead simple b) has an rss option.

    If you find it useful I would love to hear what you think, I will hopefully write a follow-up post with more technical details when my life ...

  2. A new new blog

    Thu 18 December 2014 By jarv

    Before this year is over it's time for a small redesign. I've replaced the old custom theme, water-iris with a new theme jarvican. Most of my updates these days are when I redesign the blog and I think I'm fine with that.


  3. A new blog

    Sun 24 November 2013 By jarv

    Hello world! It's been awhile and what better way to re-visit a blog then to do a re-design.

    I've cleaned house and removed some old articles, kept some of the AVR hacks and hopefully will post updates more than once a year :)


  4. Simple highscore tracking with Python / Flask

    Below is a quick tutorial on how flask web framework might be used for simple highscore tracking. All of the source code the state game is now on github.

    This code will accept an AJAX GET or POST at the end of each game so that scores can be tracked and read. Since the use-cases are simple it's easy to write the tests first:

    class StateTestCase(unittest.TestCase):
    
        def setUp(self):
            self.db_fd, state.app.config['DATABASE'] = 
                tempfile.mkstemp()
            state.app.config['TESTING'] = True
            self.app = state.app.test_client()
            state.init_db()
    
        def tearDown(self):
            os.close(self.db_fd)
            os ...
