Flip WordPress Plugin

December 28, 2010 » Geek

So I took a few minutes and slapped together a plugin for WordPress that lets you “flip” your website upside down. I basically just packaged up the code from the last post.

Grab a copy here: https://github.com/jmhobbs/Flip. It works for me in Firefox and Chrome.

So, something really simple was staring me in the face and I ignored it. CSS transforms. I’ve switched to that, but I still like the webkit stuff, it was fun to glue together.

This Sunday I tinkered for a few hours on a little project. I registered the Unicode version of my domain name, upside down (ǝɥɔɐɔʇǝʌlǝʌ) This was inspired by the post from The Sad Story Of The Unicode Snowman: ☁→❄→☃→☀→☺→☂→☹→✝.ws as posted on Hacker News.

It had to be a .com, but I bought it from DreamHost anyway.

Next I thought about Upside-Down-Ternet from a while back, but I wanted mine to be all upside down.

So, I glued together some stuff and I now have an upside down copy of this website at that domain. It’s a bit rough right now, I’m rendering it in Webkit with wkhtmltopdf and then rotating and slicing with ImageMagick, all glued together with PHP and some shell scripting.

I want it to be an actual HTML copy eventually, but if you visit my domain it should show you anything on www.velvetcache.org. You can even view this post: http://www.ǝɥɔɐɔʇǝʌlǝʌ.com/2010/12/27/www-ǝɥɔɐɔʇǝʌlǝʌ-com

I added a little link to all of my pages to let you flip them in place, it’s the very bottom right and it says “[dılɟ]”. It’s my newest little easter egg, like the Konami Code.
