First off, apologies as it’s been quite a while since I’ve made a posting. I’m gonna try and change that I’ve really got no excuse. So, to try and get back in the groove, I’ve just created a new website project that uses varying parts of PHP to do a number of things – mostly to keep me informed of the ever changing Washington State weather. It has a configuration file that has a listing of all of the passes in Washington State and then from the pass names, it has a few arrays that specify cameras, etc and them embeds them in to a mobile based website:
Check it out. It defaults to Snoqualmie Pass because that’s the one I travel over most. However, you’ll notice at the top left, the three horizontal bars. If you click on the three bars, by default it will show you the cameras associated with that pass. The cool feature however is if you click on the pass name at the very top of that menu system, it will take you to the “main menu” and list all of the passes. Simply click on your pass of choice and presto, you now are whisked away to that pass and all of the associated cameras. It also uses the WSDOT RSS feed to grab the weather quickly so you’re always up to date. No need for an app, no need to have to pinch and zoom on WSDOT’s site, you’re all set!
