Quote calculator

The quote calculator was implemented on one of my former web sites from when I was a freelancer. User can specify parameters like type of web site, extra features, number of forms, etc. and get immediate quote estimation.

Shopping cart

This shopping cart was incorporated in a HTML web site. User can create several bags, change their styles and drag-and-drop items into them. Clicking on items displays their information. A list of items in the bag is provided along with a subtotal updated each time an item is added.

Reminder widget

This small Flash application shows the time and date. It also lets user set up a reminder for a certain time with specified text. The widget could be used on community web sites or in user areas.

Size converter widget

This small application calculates rescaled area of a specified rectangular object. It can be used to calculate width based on a different height or new dimensions if an object was R-times larger.

pyCreeper

The main purpose of pyCreeper is to wrap tens of lines of python code, required to produce graphs that look good for a publication, into functions. It takes away your need to understand various quirks of matplotlib and gives you back ready-to-use and well-documented code.
