Mashing up Twitter Trends and Google Images
I recently released the latest entry in my series of nano-apps.
As with my previous efforts, istrending.com serves serves no real purpose other than as an act of deliberate practice: going through the process of coming up with an idea, writing code, registering domain names, setting up Cron jobs and configuring deployment systems to get it all up and running in a production environment.
cap deploy took care of the rest.
The code is available on GitHub as usual.
Next up is probably something bigger, very likely involving Rails. I’ve been reading up on the various testing methodologies used in the Ruby world and have written my first set of RSpec tests so I hoping my next release will at least have some test coverage. Other than that I’ll just have to see what ideas come to mind between now and then.
Any suggestions on what I should do next?
