Hey!

My name is Colin Rabyniuk

I'm a writer, developer, and product manager who loves all things digital.

Let’s build.

Projects

Cohousr

Javascript, Node.js

August 2017

Cohousr is part of a co-housing research project I'm helping my brother with. It uses node and request-promise and Google's Custom Search Engine API to scrape data from cohousing craigslist ads. The data will be further analyzed to gain an accurate picture of how people are talking about these kinds of communities.

ESFiddle

HTML5, Less, Javascript

July 2017

ESFiddle is an open source project that lets you try out the newest ES6+ features in your browser. It's a really helpful tool and resource. I redesigned the profile pages to render better on mobile and make better use of space on desktop.

Ron Howard Voice

Javascript, Node.js

June 2017

Ron Howard Voice is a dumb Twitter bot I made using Node.js and the npm package Twit. It's like, so dumb I shouldn't even talk about it here.

Weathr

jQuery, Ajax

June 2017

Weathr a quick little app to read the weather in any city in the world. It's built with jQuery, Ajax and the OpenWeatherMap API. I slapped materialize.css on to it as well, because, well, it's really nice.
