Whatz n the Hood

Overview

This is an application I wanted for my own apartment complex. For community spirit and the smooth operation of, for example, bins, etc, I thought it would be great to have a website that was the ultimate reference for residents. I sat down to begin it but the size of the manual task was very off-putting.

I wanted a service that, with the click of a button, would generate a starter website for me, filled with all sorts of useful information like locations of garda stations and libraries. Once I had that, I could edit and improve the website. The initial steep effort of getting a website together would have been eliminated.

The availability of the Fingal data convinced me it was possible (in theory, because I actually live in the Dublin City Council area). I latched onto Google's Blogger platform as the ideal host for the generated web pages. As it turned out, though, the deadline arrived before I had sorted out the various authentication and other issues necessary to make that part happen. Instead, the service generates a package of standalone web pages that illustrates the concept very nicely.

The application is driven by a simple, one-page form. A draggable marker allows you to identify the location of your community (housing estate, etc). Toggles allow you to choose what sort of data is included. You can also adjust the radius that the service will search within for local amenities.

Hit the Create button then and you are invited to save a zip file of HTML pages and supporting files. Unzip it and open one of the HTML files and you can view the result.

Fingal Day Tripper

Submitted by David McNamara last modified Thu, 22 Mar 2012 11:39:37 GMT.

It is common for families to take a day trip on the weekend to local attractions such as beaches, parks, castles and other amenities. This can, however, be a stressful time for the parents, due to having to organise the children, lunches, equipment, etc. A further headache is having to organise driving directions for the day, especially if the trip is to a new location.
