Installing the Front End Editor Extension on Joomla 1.5

Many of you already know that I created the “Front End Editor” a.k.a ”Enhanced Front End Editing” extension for Joomla! as part of Google Summer of Code 2009. The extension only works in 1.5.x right now. Even though I tried to make it easy to adopt the extension by making it easy to setup, the extension does rely on the template quite a bit. I thought if I explain the installation process, all the hacks the extension makes and the underlying dependencies in a blogpost, it should help in getting rid of confusion to some degree.

You can download the extension from JED.

Twitkut v2.0 to Be an OAuth Gadget

I’ve been working on the next version of Twitkut in whatever little free time I’ve had in the past couple weeks ( mostly weekends ). The next version of Twitkut will feature a number of new and exciting features, the most major one being support for OAuth.

Short Movie on the Mussoorie-Rishikesh Trip

I created a short movie out of the still pics of our stay at Mussoorie and Rishikesh. A pinch of creativity and a couple of hours of work went into the creation/direction of this movie. Hope you like it!

The music used in the movie (in the same order):

  • Eye of the tiger - Scorpions
  • Bebot - Black Eyed Peas
  • The Hill - Markéta Irglová
  • Enter Sandman - Metallica

Back After an Amazing Trip to Mussoorie and Rishikesh

This previous weekend from 18th to 20th September was probably the most fun and adventure I have had for quite a while. While I was on leave from college on Thursday, my college friends were planning a trip to Mussoorie via Haridwar and Rishikesh for the weekend. After much vacillation from everyone, 5 of us finally decided that we were going to the trip! Part of the fun was that the final decision was made just hours before the actual trip began. So, none of us had any time to really think about the beautiful weekend that awaited us.
