Contributing code makes projects better

⌫ Home

I'm happy to say that Dropplets, the platform powering this blog, now contains code that I contributed. It's a very minor thing, but it adds the significant ability to style posts independently of each other.

The feature was inspired by things like Tumblr's quote feature and WordPress' Post Formats. I wanted to break up the stream of similar-looking posts and have some variety. Not every post requires a headline or a thumbnail.

What $post_status lets you do:

  • Use $post_status as a CSS class to style posts differently.
  • Use $post_status in a PHP if... else loop to deliver completely different HTML for different post types.
  • Use $post_status to make soup.

If you think of some other use, let me know.
