I’ve just updated a couple of my old personal project websites.
- Twitter Sucks! – Upgraded all Ruby gems and got it working again. Updated CSS and picked newer fonts from Google Fonts.
- Flittr = Flickr + Twitter – Upgraded three major versions of Rails and got it (almost) working again. Switched from the fleakr gem to the flickr gem. Right now, every tweet falls back to a lolcats image because the Yahoo! Term Extraction API no longer exists.
Both applications are currently running on Heroku’s free tier. Once I get them modernized enough I may move them to the “Hobby” tier. I also upgraded both from their ancient Cedar-10 stack.
