Building a Gimmebar Sidebar
Nov 10, 2011 @ 12:54:55

Following along the lines of this post from Ed Finkler about working with the Gimme Bar API, Chris Hartjes has chimed in with his own post about creating his sidebar based on the same source.

Funkatron was kind enough to put together a blog post about building a Tumblelog with Gimme Bar and PHP so I told him I would write up what I did on my own blog. One of my intents was to use the Gimme Bar API to pull in a list of my latest Gimmies for the sidebar on this blog. Ed had posted a very simple example in Javascript (I cannot remember where it is) so I took it and ran with it to modify it to work with the blogging software used here.

He includes the simple javascript, about 15 lines of it, that pulls the latest "gimmies" from his own feed and posting them as sidebar items (as you can see right next to the code snippet).It uses a combination of Ender.js, Reqwest, Underscore and regular javascript to get the job done.

The Developer Tutorials website has posted an article with a sort of beginner's guide to working with WordPress and its customization.

WordPress is a state-of-the-art semantic personal publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, web standards, and usability. [...] WordPress is what you use when you want to work with your blogging software, not fight it.

They briefly mention how to use the administrative interface for the tool, but focus mainly on the templating system. They talk about the structure of the themes and how to create your own inside it. There's even parts detailing the specific sections (like the header, the posts section and the sidebars).
