A few simple web/desktop apps...

...that I've made while teaching myself a little JavaScript, and, more recently, learning Java

If you have any requests for a simple web/desktop tool, or debugging /additional features for my existing apps, feel free to drop suggestions in the "Leave a Reply" box on on this page of my other site.


Started a GitHub account late May 2022; just NotAgain, Divvier programs, & GoldGrab uploaded so far.

NotAgain  Java program to alert Wordle players if they're about to waste a guess on a previous solution.
Latest version (just updating a dependency) uploaded 12 June 2022


FindFileOrFolder Problems with file search on your system? This simple searcher might help.


Divvier (can be executed after downloading on Java-enabled devices; source code here)
Mid-2022 note - exploring an idea for an alternative approach...not quite working out, though could still have some complementary utility; in progress

Web version (early development, processes sets of 4 or 5 input numbers only)
[& Alternative web version with dynamic input fields]

This is an odd little one, prompted by some head-scratching over how to take as near as possible to half from five pieces of frozen foodstuff of unequal size :p   There are probably equivalent or better tools out there, but I couldn't come up with sufficiently specific search phrasings to find them!


Colour Pulser     [& Version with undifferentiated stop buttons]

Colour Player     [This blog post describes how the app can be used to experience a striking aspect of colour perception]

There are many colour display tools already out there, most a lot more sophisticated than the above, but on the off-chance that these combinatons of features are of use to anyone, I've foisted them on some poor server somewhere.


Random Player   (Java; added a button to enable/disable inclusion of files in subfolders 24 Oct 2018)
Opens files at random in a target folder – useful for playing e.g. random video files if you don’t have a player with this feature


Line Number Stripper   (Java; added a feature 16 Oct 2016)

DeSpoiler   (Java; 22 Dec 2016)

BulletExtractor   (Java; 27 Aug 2017)


Game score tallier for the distractable   (Last tweaked Sept 2016)


DNA base count   Just an exercise to perform a tiny subset of what hundreds of elaborate online sequence tools have been doing for decades, though it could be handy for removing spaces from texts/strings and viewing them in lines of 50 characters width, if you have a random need for such things...

Calculate length of input string and display first X characters   Does what it says on the tin. That's all, folks.

Calculate mean of two input numbers   Of sentimental value only. Nothing to see here; move along, please...


In progress (maybe shelved): GoldGrab Source code here
