#Some notes


Designing in balsamiq mockups using bootstrap symbols library and grid system.

Using Tabletop to have google spreadsheet backend. to decouple CMS from front end. Drawing and refining prototype approach from earlier project with WIP interview.

This allows to decouple content from presentation. And easy interface to curate content for non-developers.

setting up balsamiq with Bootstrap symbols library

Balsamiq mockup with bootstrap to components.

The main advantage of pairing a pattern library with Balsamiq Mockups is that it can free you from worrying about look, feel, and behavior when designing yet provide pixel-perfect renditions of the final product components.

"click a Bootswatch theme, last thing you want is for someone to say "oh, you used bootstrap" as that distracts from the experience.

Sleek transitions

Making an Overlay


github + github pages for demo preview

use github and put project containing index.html inside a colder called docs in root of project you can set github pages to read/render page from there and get a live demo right there and then.

Make sure your .gitignore excludes media file. and store video /audio elsewhere, eg dropbox public folder, or amazon s3 bucket. Don't commit media to git. makes the repo heavy, because of how git stores snapshots of files.

if you got custom domain it automatically make the github page with your domain + suffix of project eg with no extra effort.

Google spreadsheet custom functions (TC calculator)

inspired by timecode claulator on google sheet

However easier to do with

Tools -> scirpt editor

* Convert timecodes `hh:mm:ss:ms` to seconds
* where ms are ignored
function timecode_to_seconds(tc) {
  var tc = tc.split(":")
  var h = parseInt(tc[0])*60*60
  var m = parseInt(tc[1])*60
  var s =parseInt(tc[2])
  return h+m+s

in excell sheet

=timecode_to_seconds(F2) where in this case F2 for example will contain a timecode 00:01:30:00 that will then be rendered as 90 (secs)
