I love hacking up pieces of code to achieve a certain functionality. This page lists some of the hacks that I have built over the years. I have lost track of some of them , which is why I am making an effort to collate them all in one place.
1. Quot Project
with just one click. Read more about it here.
2. More Y! - Search for the widescreen
3. Custom site search
You might have seen the search box on my homepage, if you have'nt then please do so. That calls the custom site search that I built using the Yahoo BOSS api. I was in the mood for actually writing my own search engine which crawls, indexes and returns results, but due to lack of time and an incentive, I chose to use this. Go to this URL to search for content on my site
4. Literatti - Multi User blogging platform
This was a hack built during the all night coding marathon at Innofest 08. A multiuser blogging platform where authors can write articles, which feature on the home page and also their own personalized pages. Regular features such as comments, email article, RSS feeds were built.
5. Rowz - Enterprise knowledge aggregation and search
Built as a part of Yahoo's Open Hackday 2009. Rowz is a social search engine meant to improve developer productivity. Users can build a repository of sorts from search results, snippets of information from the web and search them along with the traditional web search results as a fallback option. It also explores a whole new way of looking at traditional bodies of knowledge aggregation such as forums built on top of a search engine. Rowz can be accessed here
6. Moffe - My own friend feed emulator
This is my quintessential twitter hack. I post to twitter from moffe. Like friendfeed, people who read my tweets can post comments on the macro blogs that I write. If I share a link, the content of that link gets federated directly onto the page. Its a combination of twitblogs, friendfeed like ease with RSS and a cool dashboard
. Well, no better way to know more about Moffe, than to read its introduction using itself available here
