Some Recent Creation

From The Blog

Released my old theme

This is an old wordpress template designed and created by me at 2014. The initial goal was creating modern looking theme but still backward compatible with old browser/IE 6. i was naively thinking that supporting ie6 can be a selling point, So i believed there were still a market for theme like this and i tried to publish this theme on the template marketplace. But you guess it. nobody cared about ie6 anymore. rejected.

What i learned: Everyone knows that supporting IE6 is hard.. but it even harder to push modern stuff (eg: responsive design, retina display, etc) and keep it backward compatible with it. Too many time spent on bug fixing and finding a compromise.

This theme is intended to be lightweight and easy to setup & customize. It has no dependency to any 3rd party css framework.

I released it as open source. Along with PSD design and documentation. Find it in github.

Creating Kids app for my daughter

Its been long time since the my last post on this blog (2 years ago!). Looks like this blog is neglected again ūüėÄ

Recently, We’ve created kids app for android about learning animals.

We did it in our spare time. I did design and coding, and my wife focused on content, music, sounds & voiceover.

The app concept is a combination of talking encyclopedia, flashcards, activity (eg: coloring book) and educational games. Our 2 years old daughter, Nadine loves it!

And we’ve published it to play¬†store for other kids in Indonesia.
Previously, i had experiment with mobile app using web (JS) wrapped with phonegap/apache cordova. However the concern was performance. I dont think we can create games with lot of visual effect that working smoothly on old/low end devices. So i looked for something else. I’m interested in free cross platform framework so it can running on multiple mobile os like android or iOS without changing too much code.

The choice were Corona SDK, Adobe Air, Unity, Cocos, and more..

Adobe AIR is appealing, especially with my previous experience with actionscript, also away3D support makes great mobile performance. however i’m not very sure about the future of AIR, and the runtime filesize is kinda big. so i just skipped it.

I tried Corona and i think i like it. It uses Lua language which seem weird at first. Corona has great documentation . It might not as powerful as Unity, but for 2D games, it already good enough & fast in term of perfomance.

Draft in progress:
