The Gutenberg Arrival

November 8, 2018 Thapelo Moeti Learning Experiences , Random Stuff

Okay, so WordPress 5.0 is coming and I’m not ready. All my code is still stuck on 4.7 and I am no way ready to update any of it. But anyway let’s discuss this update for a second; so the core team decided to build a Wysiwyg editor and incorporate it into the next update […]

The First Of Many – TDT One

October 30, 2018 Thapelo Moeti Projects , Themes , WordPress , WordPress Themes

Of course it always had to come to this. After weeks of back and forth, I finally managed to get my theme through the review process and it’s now sitting comfortably in the WordPress theme directory. My first theme in the theme directory is a huge achievement if I have to say so myself, so […]

The Lite Side of WordPress

March 29, 2017 Thapelo Moeti PHP , Projects , WordPress

So, as with all the reinventing the wheel projects I’ve taken, this one has to take the cake. Talk about going completely off course and completely wasting my time and energy. This project set me back two (make that three) full sleepless and painfully long weeks. So what is it? Well, LitePress, is exactly as […]

The Rebirth of MyDB

January 15, 2017 Thapelo Moeti MySQL , PHP , Projects

Last month I took a step into the MVC world and it was nothing to write home about. “It will all makes sense once you understand it” is what I would tell my peers who are clueless when it comes to this sort of things. Being a junior at everything sucks, but luckily, PHP is […]

Keeping it Minimal

December 30, 2016 Thapelo Moeti HTML5 Templates , Projects

It’s been a long year, and I just want to end it on a good note. This time I wanted to keep it simple and clean. Think I did just that   Or just download the zipped files here All’s well that ends well. Here is to a prosperous new year. I am definitely stepping […]

Inspired By Colors

November 27, 2016 Thapelo Moeti HTML5 Templates , Projects

Yes, yes, I’m still on that redemption journey for the year that was, and I’m glad to say things are looking up. The next project I should tick off my list is a theme inspired by colors. And I didn’t disappoint with this one (I hope). My biggest hurdle seems to be applying CSS to […]

Strongly Typed

November 9, 2016 Thapelo Moeti HTML5 Templates , Projects

One of the projects that was on my hit list was to create a WordPress theme at least once a month, but we all know how that went down. So here’s my attempt at redemption. A HTML5 Template that will hopefully be the first of many…  

The Year That Was

November 4, 2016 Thapelo Moeti Random Stuff

Ahhh, the prospects of November just bring on that feeling of looking back on the year that was. Not being the type to disappoint, I also traveled down that memory lane, and it doesn’t look anything like how I envisioned it at the beginning of the year. I had a long list of exciting projects […]

TS Grid System

September 29, 2016 Thapelo Moeti CSS

I know what you’re thinking, ‘Not another one?’. And I’m sorry to disappoint, but yes, yet another one. You see, the CSS grid system has become a sort of prerequisite for anyone eyeing to become the next greatest web developer. And as such, the people have responded by creating framework after framework hoping to solve […]

noSQL to SQL

May 10, 2016 Thapelo Moeti Ideas

As apps are becoming more data driven, SQL database developers haven’t had it easy, as they are challenged to provide database designs that have to cater to all those unstructured data that will be coming their way. But getting this design right is not as black and white as one would hope. It’s a stressful […]

The Orchard Experience

April 3, 2015 Thapelo Moeti Learning Experiences

I love challenges but I have never been particularly happy with trying out new things, and most importantly, things I know nothing about. But in this particular instance, I thought to myself how bad could it actually be. It’s not like I didn’t know the language, and, I actually had to prove myself to my […]

The Twitter Clone

January 10, 2015 Thapelo Moeti PHP , Projects

A while back I wrote a twitter clone script (which at the time seemed like a stupid idea after a failed attempt at doing facebook) coincidentally named tClone as a way for me to wrap my head around MVC, and twitter of course. Being new in the world of PHP it took me a great […]
