The map you see is notated with every place that features in the novel. This was a fun project that had different challenges to overcome.
During my first read-through, I wondered about the places that crop up in the book and was in awe at the level of detail.
I not only wanted to highlight this visually, but allow for past and future readers to grasp and understand the distances that doesn’t necessary get portrayed well in the book. This is simply another layer which fans might be interested in.
tools.jephler.co.uk is a project site that I have set up which primarily houses different tools ranging from convertors and calculators to more generally links to reference sites. It was built with ease of use and portability in mind and is fully compatible with mobile devices too!
I think of the site as my coding playground and allows me to create and share tools which I not only find interesting, but more importantly useful. Thanks to Django, this does not limit the site to what you see today and will hopefully be expanded upon through time.
I have some existing projects that currently live in a myriad of Python files which I am hopeful to convert and eventually host here.
Suggestions or comments welcome! Please get involved.
multi-search is a small GUI tool designed to search for a term or keyword on multiple websites.
It’s built in Python using the appJar GUI suite.
It’s intended as a tool for buyers or sellers to compare the price of an item, where comparison websites may fail for different reasons.
It can will save time, as well as passively suggesting different sites to search.
Additionally, the multi-search tool doesn’t attempt track or collect any user information.
The program is simple by design, which tries hard to be as quick and intuitive as possible.
After the “Sites to search” are selected in the dropdown, the URL links are presented for use.
There’s an additional option to automatically open the links in the web-browser.
How it works
It’s really simple. The program loads the site and search data from a “.txt” file.
It builds a URL string from the data and the search term provided.
It shows or opens the URL’s for the user!
Up to now in it’s current form, the program is completely useable, although still in its infancy.
Bundle the project for Windows and Linux, making it widely available
