swimming in zurich: "z├╝ribad"

posted by alexis reigel on april 25, 2011

My first android application is a utility app about all public swimming baths in Zurich. It shows the current water temperature for each bath and additional information is available too, such as address and routing info (how to get there by public transportation). Google map integration provides a geographical overview of the baths.

The app is freely available in the android market. The source code is hosted on Bitbucket.

There’s a new tool for the file sharing service minus.com that makes it really easy to share files. The tool provides a context menu entry in the windows explorer and a simple user interface to upload the files and provide you with the share url.

The tool is on github.

replace as in batch replace

So I once again needed to replace several patterns in multiple files with something new… Windows lacks a nice terminal with all the pipeable tools. Instead of doing this all in my favorite text editor by using repeatedly find/replace, I decided that something more handy was needed. Of course I could have done all that replace stuff with xslt too, for even more awesomeness (you can’t see my face, that what sarcasm).

The result of my disapproval of the above mentioned options is the Batch Replacer. As always it is released under the gpl. I also used git:" for the first time and published the source code on github".

navigate to those urls over and over again...

I’ve written a tool that allows to define commonly used URLs for repeated access, varying only by a defined parameter-part. When you call one of those URLs, you just need to pass a parameter and it opens in the browser. That way you get quick access to often used URLs, e.g. your preferred search engine, your ticketing system or whatever. For even faster access the URLs are bound to predefined global hotkeys.

More infos can be found on github.
