A place to track my several small projects
I wanted to have a full Agents App wire-frame up by now, but I’ll have to settle for showing an editted-down prototype of a previous version of the project.
To create this self-updating list, I used XSLT to query the user’s personal account XML feed, which was added to from a custom PHP form and the foursquare oAuth.
As for the design, I still plan on including some kind of visual cue of progression (such as percentages or the progress bar I mentioned earlier).
Next up: I’ll get into some hardcore information architecture (IA) to show how the Agents App will receive, respond to and track puzzle solutions.
A simple way to help people track their status/progress in a mission is with a progress bar. For example, the user has completed 2 out of 3 steps in a mission. In the report about that mission, we could quantify their progress as I did above, with percentages (i.e. 66.66666…%) or with a simpler graphic like this one:
I will prototype this inspiration in more detail later after I work on the account creation and puzzle-submission mechanism.
Hey everybody! I’m starting this Tumblr to keep up with my projects and discuss all things dev. I’ll catch everybody up on my latest project to create a web app-based alternate reality game (ARG) with a simple Posterious-like sign-up. The idea there is to allow for several points of entry into this spy world-type game. Stay Tuned!
