Does anyone know if there is a way I can use the Envato API to get the date of the last time an item was updated?
I know that I can get a specific item, but I really want to retrieve the date of the last update of the specific item.
I’m not aware of anything like this already written, but I just wrote this exact functionality into a theme. Contact me via my profile page if you’d like to work something out.
Yep definitely. It’s certainly a by-project-basis type of workflow.
It depends a lot on the project. Some projects, particularly smaller ones, I just jump into coding them, while others, such as my latest item, have a lot more planning involved.
I find that it is always best to first design the user experience, what would you like the user to see and how he will interact with it. Then you code it up.
I usually go the other way with this one, though that might be because I’m not much of a designer, but rather a coder. I will work to get all the functionality working the way I want, then I will improve it for the user. Just like with the pyramid: the functionality is the bottom, and the user experience is the peak.
Yeah, unfortunately, if you want a consistent experience you have to use something like jQuery.
There are a variety of jQuery plugins you can use.
JeffreyWay saidyes they have nice products, ive bought them all so far
I wanted to send a shout-out to a recent CodeCanyon author, WebFactory. He/they are doing a tremendous job so far. In little over a month, they already have around a dozen items for sale. Thanks to excellent branding, submission consistency, and item quality, WebFactory will be in a very comfortable position this time next year!
Do you actually use most of the items you buy, or just keep them around as an ever-growing collection?
