  1. 🔗Will There be a Raftable Release out of McPhee Reservoir

    I live next to the Dolores River. It’s an often overlooked gem of the southwest. It runs from just outside Rico, Colorado at its headwaters to the Colorado River near Moab, Utah. Rafting it is an experience.

  2. 🔗New Jekyll Project With No Theme and No Posts, Just Scafolding

    I use Jekyll to make this site. I've toyed with converting the site to a Wordpress site but I much prefer writing in a text editor. I also love that I can write <html> or js wherever I want in a file with syntax highlighting. I also use Jekyll to quickly prototype ideas. For this I'm looking for a bare bones Jekyll install.

  3. 🔗Django View that returns JSON with a relationship

    I am starting to really like Django development. I'm not a python developer and I am by no means a "full stack" developer, but I keep finding ways to make things in Django without much effort.

  4. 🔗Nesting Json and Using Template Literals to Produce HTML

    I come from the R world working with data. A very common data analysis technique is to take data and group it by a variable. I wanted to do the same thing with javascript and then append the data using .innerHTML to the DOM. I am working on an app that has data that I would like the user to be able to display in various different ways. I had a really hard time finding any information on grouping data and how to loop through the grouped data to display the grouped data in HTML. I am not very good a javascript so this was quite a challange for me.

  5. 🔗D3js River flows

    I'm working on a website for a rafting non-profit. I thought it would be cool if they could display the flow data for local rivers. I also thought this would be good time for me to learn more about D3js and the USGS instantaneous flow data API.

  6. 🔗Django Relationships

    For some reason, in the winter I get the urge to learn something new. This year, I'm attempting to pick up Django again (gave an effort a year ago too). One of the things I wanted to better understand is how to implement database relationships.
