Where's the Fat?

In the past, WiredPages provided many tools powered by popular APIs, enabling visitors quick access to data and information.

Some of the tools/interfaces included [there were many more]:

  • World Weather -- Tool is being rewritten eliminating the Java Applet interface.
  • YouTube Search & Video Playback- interface is being rewritten to handle updates to the underlying API.
  • Indeed Job Search-- rewritten [changes to underlying API] and installed on the Employment page.
  • Political Representatives-- installed on the Government page.
  • CIA World Factbook Quick Reference-- researching new ways to provide the data on the Reference page.
  • Zillow Real Estate Values-- referenced on the Real Estate page-- installed.
  • Food Nutrition Data-- working and ready to install on the Health page. Security issue a concern.

Four tools that are working and ready for installation are shown in the illustration below. The illustration was screen-grabbed today after I retested each interface. Three of the tools are new; [1] Amazon links to the NY Times Best Sellers, [2] Gift Ideas, and [3] Today in History.

The Fat Secret interface [shown lower right corner] is the same tool that was installed on the Health page in prior years, however due to security concerns I am holding off on updating access to the tool.

Tools like the Mortgage Calculator [almost] and Base Converter are ready, however I am holding off on installation.

I am working to get all of the tools working [many had to be rewritten to remove the Java Applet interface which today's newer browsers are not supporting], however probably will not install many more of the tools until I resolve the security issues.

This post, in case you were wondering...
