Chromebook setup for Gatsby

This assumes you're running ChromeOS with Linux inside.

Turn on Linux

  • Hit the clock in the taskbar
  • Hit the settings cog
  • Type "Linux" in the search at the top
  • Press the big button that enables Linux ('turn on' then 'install').

Wait for a bit while it does its thing. (Wait for a bit, honestly, don't idly search the web, things will go wrong).

A quick check to see if Ofcom's txparams have updated themselves
View ofcom.php
// A small piece of code to check the Last-Modified header in PHP
// The below currently (on 16 October) returns:
// "Tue, 11 Oct 2016 11:26:59"
// ... so that's when it was last updated.
// I'm told that this URL is a permanent link. My assumption is that any update to the
// DAB, FM or AM data will produce an update for this main file; even though my own code
// actually just uses the .csv files.

The easiest EU cookie solution code ever?
View gist:a0783283b90550046f87
Put this just under your <HEAD> in HTML.
Note - it displays once, and once only.
It requires you to run Google Analytics on your website.
If a user deletes their cookies, it'll appear again.
You can test it by going into Incognito Mode.

This will scrape information from a Google+ page, if given a URL. The "followers" uses a class that doubtless will change; but you can hopefully see how it works.
View extract_info_from_googleplus.php
if (isset($url['url'])) {
$d = new DOMDocument();
$xpath = new DOMXPath($d);
You can’t perform that action at this time.
