contenteditable presentation stuff

Last night I gave a presentation on contenteditable and rich text editing in web browsers at the Austin Javascript meetup group! It goes into some gross details on how to fix copy/paste bugs, amongst other things.

Anyways, I’ve gotten a few requests for my slides, so here they are!

Thanks to everyone who came out, it was a lot of fun!

New and improved!

After nearly two years, I’ve finally gotten around to redoing the site!

Keep in mind, this is still a work in progress, so I’ll probably keep making changes as I get feedback from friends, but I’m much happier with the way things look now. The old look was written in a very different time in my life, and I’ve learned so much since then; it’s about time my website reflected that.


This site is now “responsive” in that it will look really good on phones as well as your desktop! Just make your browser window really small if you want to see a taste of that without pulling out your phone.

What’s next?

I want to start using this more regularly to write technical (and non-technical) blog entries. A lot has happened in the last few years, and there’s quite a few things I could potentially write about. I think it’s about time I started taking advantage of this!

Let me know what you think of the redesign!

excel2latex updates!

It finally happened!

After neglecting excel2latex for a long time, I’ve finally gotten around to adding a few improvements.

Previously, there was no way to select which workbook you wanted to convert; the script defaulted to the first one and ignored all others. This was due to the limited amount of time I had available when working on the project initially (it was a huuuuuuuge hack). A few users pointed out that this really inconvenienced them, so I took a little bit of time today to add that functionality.

Now, when an excel file is dragged onto the page, you get a dropdown box that allows you to switch between the different workbooks. Hooray! Also note that I’ve made it so the contents of the text box get selected when you click on it, saving valuable time.

Thanks a ton to everyone who has been using my silly little hack of a project! I never really imagined anyone but myself taking advantage of it, so seeing the usage stats has been a pleasant surprise! :)

Want to help out with the project? I read every single issue posted to the Github repository, and really need the feedback…there’s too many edge cases for me to test it fully in my spare time.
