Experiments

A showcase of projects to explore the new and beautiful web experiences. And tools that help me every day.

  • Best Damn Textarea Ever

    Just a super simple textarea.

    I had to work with too many Word docs, PDFs, and emails where I had to copy text over to WYSIWYGs and custom CMS. Character encoding was explicit. And sometimes, simply copying text over also brought along hidden and special characters which would only show up during pre-production. Thus, creating a minor but tedious correction step in the workflow.

    Making this standalone textarea allowed me to quickly review the quality of copied text, sanitize if needed, and copy again. Then simply paste into the target which resided in another browser tab. I didn't need another application to cloud my desktop, I just had to switch tabs.

    Also, it's great for quick and focused note taking!

    P.S. Yes, there were many online tools available but they had too many extra content and ads.

  • Encoder

    This takes the simple textarea to the next level. For the times where I needed to encode special characters. Certain CMS and workflows weren't smart enough to automatically encode special characters. Instead, it would accept the entry without any warning. Then you'd have to wait for it to be published, which wasn't instantaneous, for review. This helped ease another tedious task.

  • Basic HTML content

    Simple HTML content.
