An experiment with the WP REST API and Jetpack’s REST API

A few months ago, I set to learn more about the differences between Jetpack’s REST API and the WP REST API plugin. Both projects are very interesting for the future of WordPress, as they allow third-party apps and services to interact with WordPress.

I consequently developed a little plugin using both APIs: REST API Post Embeds.

Omelette aux gaufres, ou gaufres aux omelettes ?

Le weekend dernier, j’ai décidé d’essayer quelque chose de nouveau pour le petit déjeuner. Inspiré par ma collègue Karen, j’ai décidé de préparer une omelette, avec des saucisses de Strasbourg et des tomates,  et de les cuisiner dans notre moule à gaufres. J’ai ajouté un peu de lait à mon omelette pour avoir plus de gaufres, préparé mon gaufrier, et voilà !

Le résultat n’était pas trop mal ! Ca gonfle vraiment bien dans le gaufrier, et ça permet de saupoudrer d’autres choses sur les gaufres dès qu’elles sont prêtes. Cette semaine, nous avons essayé le fromage râpé et le basilic. :)

Petit inconvénient cependant : huilez-bien votre gaufrier entre chaque tournée, sinon ça va coller !

GitHub Desktop: time to reconsider my GitHub workflow?

I’ve learnt to use Git in the terminal, and until now I’ve been perfectly happy with my workflow.

I might slowly move to the GitHub app, though: the new GitHub Desktop app allows you to create Pull Requests right from the app!

github-pull-request

Give me the option to add labels right from the app, and I’ll be sold!

If you use GitHub.com regularly, and if it’s been a while since you played with the app, give it another try; you might be happily surprised!

What are you telling me, Facebook?

A few weeks in Brittany

This is starting to become a tradition: come summer, my wife, my daughter, my dog, and I take a road trip across Europe and spend a few weeks at my parents’ in Brittany. It’s a nice change from Budapest and everyone likes the trip: my daughter gets to play outside and discover farm animals, my parents spend time with their grand-daughter, our dog runs around free, and my wife and I get spend a bit of time together.

Here are a few pictures of our last trip. That might convince you to take a trip to Brittany one day! :)

See all the pictures!

Have some questions about Jetpack?

Drop by the booth!  I will be there all weekend!

A present from the best team!

You can’t really tell because the decanter is half empty, but it says “Jetpack Jeremy” on the side :)

I received this decanter in the mail today, with a note from my teammates. I had to give it a try. 🍷:)

Thank you all, that’s a great present! It means a lot!

Jetpack truly is Bestpack! 🚀

Happiness Bubble

6AM. A thick fog surrounds us. Luckily  the sun will rise soon.

It’s been a long night. We started 7 hours ago, and we still have 2 hours to go before we can stop and relax a bit. Snacks and redbulls aren’t enough to keep me awake now, so I turn up the volume a bit, hoping that the music will keep me awake for the rest of the trip.

Quick look in the rearview mirror: I can see the top of Lili’s little head, moving in rythym. She seems to like the music. She even starts singing along! My wife laughs and joins her. Watson, who was sleeping on the passenger seat next to me, looks up, wondering if everything is OK. And quickly goes back to his nap. I guess he was happy with the current situation. I couldn’t agree with him more. We’re together, we’re happy. We’re like a small bubble of happiness, blazing through the fog.
