Here’s a link to my random quote machine :
I feel that it’s mostly, functionally, complete. It’s not the prettiest thing in the world and i’ll endeavour to fix that. (I read somewhere that yellow is an inspiring colour but I think that all it really inspires is dry heaving.) That said it seems to me that it does what it’s supposed to.
However, I’m not very happy with the way it hides the quotation’s well (and the twitter button). It’s supposed to be hidden on documentready but you can see it sort of being swept to the side when you open it up.
I’ve also used the twitter’s own web intent for the tweeting of the quote. This seems functionally correct but is there a better way to implement this? (Especially as codepen/twitter don’t seem to play well with each other.)
I ended up creating and “hosting” my own json file on dropbox, something I was inspired to do from hearing that another user had done so. This was mainly because I just didn’t like the quotes supplied by other api’s (Chuck Norris - I do even have the beginnings of another quote generator using that api still on my codepen) and liked the hands on of making it myself.
Thanks for spending your time to take a look at my work for me and for any feedback you can give.
