New randomlygifted update brings more gift ideas and hopefully less garbage
One of my many side projects is randomlygifted, a random gift idea generator. It’s a site that constantly searches through Amazon, finds cool stuff (mostly) and then spits it out in a completely random fashion. I like to use it as a nice starting point when trying to figure out what kind of gifts to get people.
It’s also served as a nice test bed for experiments with Mootools, Ajax, and now jQuery.
A couple of days ago I unveiled (aka quietly uploaded some files, in contrast to Kim Dotcom I suppose) version 2.0 of randomlygifted. The front page hasn’t changed all that much – you still have the option of picking a gender and setting a maximum budget. But now, instead of going through items one-by-one, randomlygifted now has an awesome “infinite scrolling” feature that pulls up random items pretty much forever. AND IT ACTUALLY WORKS!
Sometimes it’s the little things in life that are the most exciting.
Anyway, check it out: randomlygifted
