Today’s update on the Top 200 WordPress plugin authors chart unfolds a big climber: in the past 7 weeks WooThemes, creator of the impressive WooCommerce eCommerce plugin, gained 4 positions, ending up from 19th to 15th, with over 4 million total downloads.
All the other plugin authors in Top 20 hold their spots, with Automattic on top (and 7th, and several other positions, due to their multiple accounts) with 21 million downloads; Takayuki Miyoshi (Contact Form 7) follows with 20 million, while Michael Torbert (All in One Seo Pack) is third with 18 million total downloads.
I sometimes like to join bot challenges to improve my programming skills and logic reasoning.
The Fruitbots world is a board with different kind of fruits lying around. The goal is to collect more fruits than the opponent bot, of many types as possible.
What is your deploying chain right now? How has it changed over time?
The actual deploy of a single page app I’m involved is based on a single Grunt script, executing on a Node.js environment.
The Grunt chain takes all the files (Backbone.js app, JS libs, HTML templates, CSS and images), checks, copies, concatenates and minificates them.

Our Really Simple Facebook Twitter share buttons
WordPress plugin aims to be always updated and fresh.
The news today is about the new YouTube subscribe button, presented here.
Twitter Bootstrap is a very good tool with beautiful graphics and lots of tiny useful objects.
The Modal object is nice and lightweight, and is also able to load remote content. I liked it and wanted to use it on a list of links, loading new content every time a link was pressed.
Unfortunately, I found that the Modal remote content load feature works only the first time the object is used! Once a Modal object is instantiated, it is persistently attached to the element specified by data-target; subsequent calls to show it will only call toggle() on it, but will not update its content. This is because the remote load is done in the constructor of the Modal object, so even changing its properties, the content won’t be updated.
