Cool Scripts, Weblog Add-Ons

More stats from whos.amung.us: I really liked the service when it was first started and the recent improvements just add a little more icing to the cake. Now you can view the number of simultaneous users on your site or blog in graph format for the day, month or year. There is also a neat little search feature to modify your past stats for a certain date range. You can now tweak the widget for your blog by choosing the color of the background and the text in the widget to suit the layout of your site and there are options for the size of the widget. I chose the TechCrunch stats because they are much more interesting to monitor but as you can tell, I installed the widget on this blog on the first day I found it and unlike other tools, it is still displayed on this blog.

Blogging News, Cool Scripts, QuickLinking

Iconlet is a search engine for icons that are available for public distribution and use. Various GNU, Eclipse and CC licensed icons of different sizes can be searched by name. ClickHeat is a self hosted, flat file based heatmap generator that is much like Crazyegg, only not as featureful and it might increase load on your server. Also checkout a gallery of various other AJAXy downloadable scripts from MiniAjax. Many of these already exist as WordPress plugins and others are yearning to be integrated into WordPress. Subscribe to a translated feed: Rafe Needleman from Webware (of Webware 100 fame, of which WordPress won the publishing category recently) explains how to subscribe to a translated feed using Yahoo pipes and Babelfish. The method is very simple and takes a few minutes. I created a feed for WeblogToolsCollection.com translated into French. Thanks Lifehacker

reinvigorate Desktop Analyzer: reinvigorate is offering an application that provides real time streaming web events from your blog or website to your desktop. They call this application Snoop. I really missed this feature that existed in past incarnations of reinvigorate. I have said in the past that I am a sucker for stats and this just tickles the stats funny bone. reinvigorate, if you are not aware, already provides a whole bunch of analytics that rival Google Analytics in features and performance.

How Scoble reads 622 RSS feeds every morning: Vlog of how Scoble organizes his feeds using Google Feedreader and filter and sifts through them to find the relevant information he wants to track or read about. The number of feeds he follows is staggering to me. I read approximately 200 feeds and rotate them freuqently. In spite of the smaller number, I have a hard time keeping up with the rush of information from feeds and other sources. Although in my defense, my 24″ vertically rotated monitor really helps with the reading (I run two monitors, 1 x 20″, 1 x 24″ rotated, Ultramon) and blogging is not my day job. Also of interest, is the Better Google Reader Firefox extension that I find quite useful. I started using Google Reader a few months ago and have yet to switch back. The linked video was choppy for me but Scoble’s […]

Web 2.0 free button maker: After the success of the Stripe Generator and the Ajax Loading Gif Generator, here is a Web 2.0 Button Maker that lets you upload your own icon and build gel buttons for your site or blog. I agree with Mashable that the script is not very Web 2.0 ish itself since you have to “Apply Changes” every time you make a change but it is fun nonetheless. I tried building a PNG with the flame logo of weblogtoolscollection.com but I was spending so much time on it, I just gave up and made something simple. It turns out that we like “generators” on WeblogToolsCollection.com!

Plugin Page WordPress Stats Plugin Plugin Mission Add highly available, highly versatile statistics similar to WordPress.com to your WordPress.org hosted blog. Plugin Vision (Features) Wordpress.com has had a very nice statistics package for its users for some time. This plugin adds the same statistics to a WordPress hosted blog. Automattic does require that every user have a WordPress.com API key for the installation but it is very painless to get and the statistics generated are fantastic. There has been a lot of good press surrounding this plugin and Andy and the Automattic team have done a bang up job on it. Lots of items are monitored by the statistics plugin and the usual suspects are available. You can access the statistics through your blog admin and the page redirects to a WordPress.com admin page where the stats are available. The main statistics page displays a flash graph of your daily […]

Stripe Generator: While you are waiting for the WordPress Theme Generator to dig itself out of the digg effect, check out this “ajax diagonal stripes background designer”. At first I was wondering what use cool looking candy stripes would be until I read the Striped Designs post on their blog. I love the subtle gradient stripes! Thanks to a ping from ScriptyGoddess for the WordPress Theme Generator post.

Vista WordPress Gadget: Get easy access to the core WordPress activities on your Windows Vista machine with this Vista Gadget for WordPress. Installation and setup should be simple. I was working on a gadget to pull the Planet’s feed but all work came to a grinding halt when I realized that Vista would not work with Cisco LEAP at school (by design I understand, LEAP is too weak) and with Safenet SoftRemote for work. So now it resides on an abandoned hard drive waiting for vendors to come up with solutions. I had it on my laptop for a total of three weeks and beside the atrocious memory requirements, was quite impressed with the product. Sidebar Gadgets are my favorite new feature in Vista and there are some terrific resources to build gadgets for those that are so inclined.

whos.amung.us: I love these alternative domain names. But even better than that, I like this application that tracks recent visitors to your blog or website and displays them on a simple graphic on your page. Installation is dead simple and the information is quick and current. You visit the link above, copy the code on the main page, paste it in your footer (or anywhere else on your template that gets loaded with every visit) and you are all set. Now if you click on the graphic that is generated, it tell you recent unique visitors to your pages, the list of pages being visited and updates the list in real time. There is also a Firefox Plugin for quick stats checking. Additionally, there is also a popular pages heat map of sorts. I have implemented it on this blog for the time being and you can find it at […]
