jobreapr, search better fiverr alternatives at one place

Sometime ago, I blogged that FPPlatform is ahead of other Fiverr clone scripts. FPPlatform, aka Fixed-price platform is a freelance job platform written in PHP/MySQL stack that our team has developed. It's powering many good fiverr alternatives. The panic fiverr then tried to close the competitors through PayPal's AUP through false copyright claim--the problems were sorted out through legal measures of the competitors and I hope, fiverr will be forced to pay damages for alleged copyright claim.

Problems with Fiverr


For sellers, Fiverr charges hefty 20% commission. There are bunch of related complaints about fiverr on the net. Also, on the net can find many buyers complain that sellers in Fiverr are not serious as they would be getting just $4 for every services; sellers have to focus on quantity--not quality to make profit.


Better Fiverr alternatives


FiverrWay, tracks all fiverr competitors and also publishes rank every month. Being competitors, these sites takes lot of measures to keep their users (sellers & buyers) happier than fiverr.

Why jobreapr?


FiverrWay's role would be much helpful for the site owners on how to promote their sites and how they're performing with peers. For buyers and sellers, there was no quick search engine available to have a quick overview about jobs/gigs till jobreapr. jobreapr is developed by our team, with great efforts from Manonmani.

For sellers


  • jobreapr is a good place to find suggestive price for their service (instead of posting cheaper at fiverr)

  • jobreapr is a good place to see which site gets more buy or attention from buyers (more jobs/gigs may not actually mean that there will be more business)


For buyers


  • jobreapr is a good place to find cheap or better service

  • jobreapr's search algorithm uses google like syntax and that helps buyer to quickly find for what they're looking for



There are more features planned and coming up on jobreapr

Using Sodexo Meal Pass Card in BigBasket.com - How-to

How to Use Sodexo Meal Pass Card in Bigbasket.com Sodexo started to issue Smart Card similar to Credit Card--instead of their usual paper based vouchers.

I was using Sodexo vouchers for longtime, but it was a big letdown when I can't get some of my unused vouchers renewed. And so, I was somehow happy with their new Meal Pass Card. But, again, it was a big letdown as I can't use it with BigBasket--where I usually use most of my meal coupon vouchers.
SMS message from Sodexo on December 20, 2017 1:18 PM came as a big surprise, as I was waiting for this for longtime:
Great News! Pay with your Sodexo Meal Card for food items ordered from Big Basket. Choose Sodexo in the payment section & pay on delivery.

And so, this month, I tried to use my Sodexo Meal Pass Card in BigBasket.

BigBasket website had not much information; I thought that I have to swipe my Meal Pass Card. Delivery person also didn't have much information; initially he was rejecting my Card! I tried to contact …

Who is S.P. Udayakumar, (Koodankulam anti-nuclear) activist of the year

I greatly admired S.P. Udayakumar  (Koodankulam anti-nuclear activist) for his calm and composed response; it is usually not easy to reply moronic Narayanasamy and moronic Ponraj (advisor of Abdul Kalam) who're always blabbering irrationally. By wrongly judging from his sober and humble look, I'd thought that he's an illiterate villager from Koodankulam. But, recently I came to know that he's studied in USA and worked as a professor there. My respect for him greatly increased when I compared him with other exhibitionist NRIs.

Here are the details that I collected...

Name: S.P. Udayakumar
Age: 50
Native: Nagercoil
Family: Wife Meera running SACCER primary and middle school, 2-sons

Converting PSD with PHP/ImageMagick

After seeing feature rich options in Imagick PECL extension at Mikko Koppanen's (the author) website and also impressed with ImageMagick's features, I have decided to use it for the PSD to XHTML conversion website that I'm architecting and managing.

Since, the team wants programming help for converting PSD images, I have tried it (documentation is sparse on PSD handling)

Converting PSD to PNG/JPEG/etc
Note that, flattenImages() is needed for layered/multi-page PSD file.


<?php
$im = new Imagick('test.psd');
$im->flattenImages();
$im->setImageFormat('png');
$im->writeImage('test.png');
?>



Extracting PSD layers
One by one


<?php
$im = new Imagick('test.psd');
$im->setImageFormat('png');
for ($i = 0, $num_layers = $im->getNumberImages(); $i < $num_layers; ++$i) {
$im->setImageIndex($i);
$im->writeImage('layer' . $i . '.png');
}
?>


Note that, there is a better version below
