The Hackers Diet, WordPress plugin

Awhile back, I started looking into fixing the hackers diet wordpress plugin and publishing it for the world to use. Here recently I finally started towards that goal. I reached out to the original creator and got his blessings to go forward.

 

So, first on the todo list, is to figure out the series of errors that keep showing up. I was able to correct the installation issues that were showing up. The biggest issue now is, when you enter your weight and save it, a whole slough of errors show up.

Second on the list is to update the jquery graphing, to one a bit more aesthetically pleasing.

With any luck, I will be able to give this plugin a new life and add a few features in the process.

When @afex wrote the original code, he laid the groundwork for a widget, which I completed and it works perfectly. Another issue that I ran into was, when entering a weight on a given day, it always rolled back a day. I got that fixed as well.

Thanks for reading, until next time.

Hackers Diet – WordPress Plugin

Quite some time ago, a guy named Keith ‘afex’ Thornhill created the WordPress plugin for The Hackers Diet (http://wordpress.org/plugins/the-hackers-diet/) and it appears as though he has abandoned the plugin, I love the plugin and how it works, but you can’t install it on newer versions of WordPress, you have to download the last known version it worked with and then upgrade through the different versions until you’re current. Even then it’s a little shaky. So, in my free time, I will be attempting to make the plugin work with newer versions of WordPress and hopefully get it updated. 🙂
