Here’s a rather nicely executed control for space-efficient options presentation from @joseph_carney:

joecarney / JCGridMenu

This is a simple IOS control that works as a 44x44px menu using rows and columns to show and hide options. It’s not big but it is clever, here is the obligatory screen shot…


Check out the video here to see more capabilities as well as the rather elegant animations. Nice piece of work, yep. Think we’ll drop it right into a video app we needed an elegant way to overlay some controls on, actually.

And Messr. Carney gets a gold medal with oak leaf clusters for the Best. License. EVAR:


What licence? I built this code for me to solve a problem. It solved my problem. I open sourced as I thought it might benefit the developer community at large.

Use it if you want to use it but don’t come crying to me if it doesn’t work.

If you want to pretend you built it first and start selling it as your own, then grow up and stop being a prick. Nobody wants to buy shit like this, you’ll never be Steve Jobs so wake up and smell the roses.

If you do use it and your app has millions of downloads, all because of the fact that you implemented my menu, then some sort of recognition somewhere would be cool.

Other than that, do with it what you will…

Heh. The WTFPL Non-Prickish Attribution License, we could call it?
