Advent Calender 2019 – A new library

A New Library

Hallo Leute,

welcome to day number 5 and today, I have a little surprise for you of which I’m actually really proud.

My New Archive

I actually told you about this a while back in a newsletter, but now it’s really ready for release.
I reworked the category archive pages.
Until now, you’d just get the title and a link.
And now, you’ll get:

  • not only  a cartoon galery
  • but also a short description what each post is about
  • AND a snippet of the vocabulary that we talk about in the post

And if you’re a member you can see if you’ve already marked an article as read or not.
But hey… a picture says more than a thousand words, so here’s a screenshot:

 

Meh, that looks kind of messy, actually. Well, a link says more than a thousand pictures, so here you go :)

Essentially, for the first time, you can really get an impression about what the article is so it’s easier decide what to read. And if you’re bored, you can just browse through the cartoons and learn a bit this way.
PRETTY COOL RIGHT?!
Seriously, I am really proud of this. The idea is actually kind of old but I never felt like I could actually do it, but then early this year my coding skills had progressed enough to actually make it happen. It sure took a while, especially writing all these short snippets, but now it’s done and I’m really happy you get to use it, because I really think it makes navigating the material MUCH better.
Now, of course I’ll keep making improvements. Next, I want to add little icons to the articles that show what level they’re for and how long they are.

And there’s actually an even bigger project in the works behind the scenes. That one will be HUGE. But I’ll tell you more about that on another day in this calender.
So yeah… head right over to the archive pages and check them out.
I can’t wait for your feedback :).
Oh and please, don’t hesitate to point out bugs or other things I can improve, just because I’m so happy. Criticism is always welcome.
Have a great day and bis morgen.

PS: By the way, I also added audios to pretty much ALL the articles this year. With my new, rad microphone. I hope you’re proud of your boy :).

for members :)

Sehr Cool! Ich habe den Archiv kurz angegueckt und habe ich ihn sehr nett zu benutzen gefunden! Gut getan!

It’s pretty sweet, definitely better than the old “organization”. Imagine those are air quotes.

Why do some of the article names start with “German”? Das versteht sich von selbst, oder? ;-)

There’s some inconsistency with nouns: sometimes the definite article is first (die Mühe), sometimes it’s last (Ausnahme, die), and sometimes it’s missing (Feierabend).

Ich hoffe, dass es hilft, wenn ich Ihnen sage, dass dieser Soundknopf nicht funktioniert?

That is so great! I’m so happy you did that!
I have also found a small bug- when you click on some post in the table below (not on the green left/right arrows) the post in the box above is updated with the content of the one that was clicked. But… The yellow mark in the table below don’t change. Additionally if you click on the green next arrow- the old yellow selection stays in place and the new one is added to the correct article in the table.
I hope this is understandable xD

Cheers!

Are we proud? Does the Pope s**t in the woods? You are doing amazing stuff! And I can say from experience that I’m learning more here than at Uni! Which of course, all the snobs sniff and say, “Uni isn’t a language school,” like we’re all put on the planet to theorize about language.

When you dissect a language, the frog dies.

We LOVE you, Emanuel, we LOVE your assistant, we LOVE your microphone and we LOVE your site. Och, and we LOVE unicorns! And Bier!

Das ist echt toll! Aber der Link zum neuen Archiv ist nicht leicht zu finden, wenn man die Seite öffnet. Vielleicht kannst du einen Link in die obere Leiste der Homepage setzen? z.B. könnten wir zwischen “Online Course” und “Vocabulary”, den link zu “Archiv” finden?

Wirklich hatte ich vor diesem Zeitpunkt keine Ahnung, dass ich all diese wunderbaren Ressourcen auf deiner Website finden könnte! Ich danke dir! Danke, danke, danke!!
