Plugins

This is where I store all the plugins that I write for different software. You can either browse through every plugin, or choose a category.

Amarok Script: Playlog

I just finished Playlog, my first Amarok plugin, written in Perl. I grew tired of last.fm having the sole properties of my listening-log, and such, this script everything that you listen to, along with the time that you listen to it, into two nice and handy MySQL tables. In the future, I plan to write some kind of analysis script for the data.

This was also my first piece of software to send in to kde-apps.org: Playlog.

Here is the Perl source code, in case you are interested. I release it under the GPL.

WordPress Plugin: Chemical Formula Formater

Chemical Formula Formater is a WordPress plugin that automatically formats chemical formulae. Ok, not really formulae, but it alters the chemical notation of elements. What it really does is adding <sub> tags to any numbers between 0 and 99 following chemical elements.

Example

Let’s say I write O2 (an oxygen molecule). Chemical Formula Formater automatically alters it to: O2.

Download and Install

  • Download the zipped Chemical Formula Formater 1.0.
  • Unzip the file and upload it to your plugin directory, wp-content/plugins/.
  • Activate the plugin through the “Plugins” tab in your WP-Admin.
  • That’s it! It doesn’t even have an options page!

Changelog

    • Initial release

WordPress Plugin: Favicon Head

Favicon Head is a simple way to automatically include correct tags for linking to your favicon in the head of every page in your blog. No file editing is required, you only have to upload the file to the plugin directory and activate it. The default favicon location is favicon.ico, but can be changed through the options page.

Features:

  • Animated favicon support
  • Custom favicon location
  • Works in WordPress 1.5 and 2

Download and Install

  • Download Favicon Head 1.1.
  • Unzip the file and upload it to wp-content/plugins/.

  • 2006-08-21, version 1.0:
    • Initial release

Irssi plugin: Hot-or-Not

This is my first irssi script, and it is very useful. If you ever get bored while hanging around on IRC, just type /horny and you will see something along the lines of:

01:34 -!- Irssi: 24 years old female, rated 8.4. Enjoy. http://pix2.hotornot.com/pics/HU/HU/HY/KM/ALBMBQBPXVKK.jpg
01:34 -!- Irssi: 19 years old female, rated 9.5. Enjoy. http://pix2.hotornot.com/pics/HU/H8/NE/HZ/AUHLORORSYXA.jpg
01:34 -!- Irssi: 18 years old female, rated 9.1. Enjoy. http://pix2.hotornot.com/pics/HU/HU/KS/KM/ALAZBRGQBQUR.jpg

This script fetches three random pictures from the Hot-or-Not API. It only gets images of females younger than 25 years and with a Hot-or-Not rating above 8, which means that I don’t care about minorities. Download the Irssi Hot-or-Not 0.1 source code, .pl or .zip.

Enjoy.

WordPress Plugin: Hot-or-Not Admin Panel

Example

Hot or Not Admin Panel screenshot

Download and Install

The current version of Hot-or-Not Admin Panel is 1.7. Download the zipped file here: hotadminpanel.zip. To install the plugin, just unzip it, upload it to the wp-content/plugins/ folder and activate it through the plugin tab in the administration panel.

Hot or Not Admin Panel works perfectly well on both WordPress 1.5 (Strayhorn) and 2.0, although it does not work in WordPress 1.2. Note that you will need either allow_url_fopen set to TRUE in your php.ini, or CURL support.

Changelog

    • Replaced the admin_notices hook with admin_footer. Same effect, except admin_notices didn’t exist before WP 2.0.2.

    • Added HTML debug comments

WordPress Plugin: ChessNotator

“ChessNotator” is a plugin that I wrote for WordPress. I don’t see why it wouldn’t work in WP 1.5, but I’ve only tested it in 2.0. The plugin allows you to paste a pure PGN text file between <chess> tags, and creates a nicely formatted table with the players’ names and the moves. Here is an example:
