Change Circles Script


Download the Circles file (control click page) or get the source code and make a new file in Sublime text. Then, with your pod, make some changes. Look at the example for the first mini-projects in previous classes to get some ideas (below). Be playful. Message me for help or ask me to join your zoom.

Remember, if you script stops working. Command + Option + J opens the console with the line of the error. Or “inspect element” and look for the Console in the panel. This is all explained in the second video talk.

How to use Snippets

  1. In Sublime Text go to Tools>Developer>New Snippet
  2. In the <content> tag and between <![CDATA[ …… ]]> add the following code:

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html lang="en">
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title> </title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/styles.css">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
    <script src="js/scripts.js"></script>

    Remove comments for line six and set your trigger word (such as html): <tabTrigger>html</tabTrigger>
  3. Save your snippet in a file ending in “sublime-snippet.” On Mac, user created snippets are saved at: 
    Users/”Your User Name”/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 3/Packages/User
