Roll your own “_____-aholic.com” with EditGrid’s dynamic images feature
If you recall Alexaholic (now Statsaholic) you’ll know how mashing-up
images can work like a charm. It provided several input boxes for
submitting domain names, and then load the traffic ranking comparison
charts from Alexa.
With EditGrid’s dynamic image feature, we support users to do something
similar, see the following demo spreadsheets:
* Stockaholic (http://www.editgrid.com/tnc/vincent/Stockaholic.new) -
mashup charts from Yahoo! Finance..
* Weatherholic (http://www.editgrid.com/tnc/vincent/Weatherholic.new) -
mashup satellite images from BBC Weather and t7online.
See the “instructions” tab of the above spreadsheets to know how to do it.
Rolling your own “-aholic.com” is dead simple, but the result works great.
