Melbourne Fringe Festival – Unofficial Offline Guide

Melbourne Fringe Festival Unofficial Offline Guide
http://thewheatfield.org/mff/

A couple of weeks back it was time for the Melbourne Fringe Festival again and I was keen to see some shows and there was a heck of a lot of events to go to that it was pretty overwhelming to search through and I had issues with actually looking for events. Thought it would be a good time to learn some Python and use Zurb Foundation.

Problems I faced when using the Melbourne Fringe Festival website

  • A lot of data 300+ events and with max items per page, there was still 9 pages
  • Searching relied too much of going to the event detail page, and having over 300 events, this would be very time consuming
  • Had to go to event detail page to view:
    • description of event (had to view page in order to find what the event is about: title and subtitle was not enough information)
    • dates
    • prices
    • venue
  • Couldn’t search by budget

Features of the Unofficial Offline Guide

  • Viewing all events on 1 page
  • Show all necessary info on list page (event description, dates, prices, venue)
  • Search by date, category, venue, cost
  • Offline access
  • Should work with lower end phones (pauses between searches)Image

 

Ask and you will receive: The Unofficial Brunei Times Lite Edition has cursor navigation

So Bahit Hamid suggested some features on the Unofficial Brunei Times Lite Edition and now I’ve added left and right cursor navigation to the paged modes (Paged overview | Paged Full Size)
