Side Project - RCPartRatings.com

Submitted by admin on Thu, 05/24/2018 - 17:39

Over the weekend I launched my latest side-project, aimed at the world of RC hobbyists (which I am).

The site provides ratings and reviews for all the parts required to build multirotor flying machines (drones), and most importantly allows users to create "build lists" of their preferred parts. These lists can then be shared with others and rated.

In future I plan to expand the site to include other areas of RC, like planes, helicopters, boats and cars.

Equivalent Finder

Having recently moved from the UK to the US, I discovered all the differences in the words we use, like trousers and pants for example. This meant my weekend project had to be a solution to this problem, so I created EquivalentFinder.com – a database of US words and their UK equivalents. I also included food and retail stores. The site is built on WordPress and uses mark down for easy editing.

Data Browser

For a recent project which required the parsing and display of large XML files (~1MB), I utilized the excellent jqGrid plugin, and coupled it with a jQueryUI Calendar to provide an way for customers to browse data by date.
