Some new tricks
The widget has learned some new, relatively powerful, tricks over the past couple weeks. We not only added iPhone support, but we've also added a framework for anchors and expansion control that enables some neat applications. We've been asked for anchor-type functionality by more than a few people. These new arguments allow you to specify anchor locations in outline files, as well as pre-specify expansion states. We've also added the ability to control the initial "pane positions" in three pane view. We haven't had a chance to add these options to the "configuration page" yet but you can play with them by altering the URL used to call the grazr widget.
I'm a bit overwhelmed with some code right now (a really cool project I'm positive many of you are going to really like) so Adam volunteered to write up details on the new arguments on his blog feedonomics, so head on over there and check them out!
Adam has broken out the new functionality into a series of posts:
- New arguments for the Grazr widget
- Setting the 3 Pane divider positions.
- Using the Name attribute with OPML nodes
- Using multiple expansion points
- Relative, named, and mixed positions
- Limit on expansion and anchors
- Using expansion and anchors with slider view
We've been a little quiet as of late, but that doesn't mean we haven't been busy. Our feed infrastructure has undergone some pretty significant architectural upgrades and we've got some really good visible stuff coming out over the next several weeks.
