My first WordPress plugin…

I have just created my first WordPress plugin. I requested it to be put online at the WP Repository, so I hope they’ll approve it.
Now I just have to play the waiting game…

So what is this plugin? Well, its the plugin for the AppStore fetcher I created the other day. More info here.

Let me know what you think of it. 🙂

First bike ride for this season

Well, the new Stockholm City Bikes season has started. Both on the application front and fysical training front… this is a good thing.

The day before yesterday I took my first bicycle ride from central station to slussen, and once again yesterday.

On the application front, I finally got an agreement with clearchannel. Now I am adding real-time data to a new application called “City Bikes +” and buidling a real-time data map for Clearchannel which I expect to finish today/this weekend.

Lets hope for the best! For now.. it’s back to work for me!

The threat of SJ…

Well, it has come to this now… my iPhone apps Stationen and Stationen Plus are so popular that even SJ noticed them.

Instead of sending a nice letter or email to tell how much they appreciate these apps, they send me a letter with a legal threat.

In their letter they make it clear that an image found on is partly the logo of SJ which is patented by SJ. I had 10 days to remove the logo from my site otherwise they would be forced to take legal actions.

Installing PHP on OSX


When I develop sites, I do this locally and upload the changes I made to my SVN server. Then I deploy the new releases of the sites to the specific server directly from the SVN server by a checkout or an export.

For most of the projects, I work with PHP. Using a good tutorial I found ( I re-compiled apache, mysql and Php on my computer… whithout any problems. BUT… some things were missing…

Currently I am working on a site which is using magento commerce. Magento commerce is a very advanced commerce tool and has quite som demands.
Two of the demands I was struggeling with were iconv and mcrypt. Today, I got these working.
