Introducing Ugly Email

Did you know that you know that the emails you receive most likely are being tracked? The sender can see if you opened the email, and where and what device you used it to view the email.

That might sound like something out of the movies or something you hear on the news about NSA. However, emails can be easily tracked using third party Gmail extensions like Streak, BananaTag and Yesware. To avoid being tracked, I recently decided to develop a Gmail Extension called Ugly Email. This tiny extension checks if the emails in my inbox contains a tracking pixel and adds an indicator.

Ugly Email is available via Google Chrome Store and uglyemail.com for free.

Fresh Start

Finally, I got over my bad habit of procrastinating and updated my site. It’s been forever since I touched it; mainly because I’ve been super busy working on different projects.

This new joint, is built using Jekyll and hosted using GitHub Pages. So no more transferring files using FTP client. Source code is available to the public, so feel free to fork or contribute. If you decide to fork it, code is very easy to customize and mostly everything is declared in _config.yml. Things such as, title, description and social media username slugs.

To ease the process of creating a new post, I used Rake to handle this task. Rake file is very specific and probably won’t be suitable for all. So I suggest either modifying it or completely ignoring it. Rake also requires few gems to execute successfully without any errors. So make sure you run gem install to assure that everything is in it’s place.

On the front end of things, I used jQuery to fetch my numbers from GitHub and Themeforest. Also, I use SASS syntax in addition to Compass to create the Stylesheet. For convince source code includes config.rb file, which can be imported into Codekit or any other Compass compatible stylesheet compiler and it will automatically set all the properties.
