Indie Wiki Buddy is a browser extension that helps users easily discover and support independent wikis they might otherwise miss in search results. When visiting a wiki on a large, corporate-run site, this extension will notify or automatically redirect users to quality independent wikis when they're available. Search results in Google, Bing, and DuckDuckGo can also be filtered, replacing non-independent wikis with text inviting users to visit the independent counterpart. Indie Wiki Buddy also supports BreezeWiki, a service that renders Fandom wikis without ads or clutter.
View it! is a project in active development that helps surface freely licensed images from the Wikimedia Commons to readers and editors of other Wikimedia projects. The tool uses Wikimedia Commons's relatively new structured data labelling to query media relevant to the respective subject.
A filterable directory of websites and tools dedicated to Animal Crossing: New Horizons. This site serves as the largest one-stop site to discover resources for the game. The website is open source, allowing anyone to submit additional resources.
An open-source API that queries and returns structured data from Nookipedia, an Animal Crossing wiki. The API is used by hundreds of users and has been used to build Discord bots, game guide websites, and school projects.
HackOHI/O 2016 is Ohio State's largest hackathon scheduled for November 19-20. Serving as the follow up to last year's website (see OHI/O 2015 below), the site is built from the ground up and serves as a landing page and showcase for the event. The branding focus for the year was an emphasis on triangles. The Trianglify JS library is used to create a unique header each time, along with triangles making an appearance throughout the rest of HackOHI/O's 2016 branded content.
As co-chair of web, I helped create and maintain the website of Ohio State's 2015 hackathon.
The homepage was spearheaded by fellow co-chair Matt Faluotico, while the live page was created and maintained by me
Hackalist is a global directory of upcoming hackathons, primarilly geared towards college students. The site lists hackathons by month, and lets users limit hackathons to those that allow college students, provide travel reimbursements, and/or have prizes. The site is entirely hosted on GitHub with a public JSON API that anyone can contribute to. The API also allows anyone to create their own projects using Hackalist's list of hackathons.
