Dynamically Creating Bootstrap Popovers With Javascript

Dynamically Create Bootstrap Popovers with Javascript

Bootstrap includes a popover library that lets developers easily create styled messages that can be displayed to users by triggering some javascript. I extended that functionality a little bit so that users can close the popover messages by clicking on them, and developers can dynamically create popover messages with a simple function call.

Make the jump to check out the enhanced bootstrap popovers!

    Works great! Thanks again.

    How do I make it so that it doesn't close when I click on the popover.

Can You Sell a Homebuilt Gun Without a Serial Number

posted Tuesday, June 23rd 2015 at 7:27 AM by

Completed 80% Lower Receivers

Looks like the BATFE updated their website, and in the process didn't forward any of the links from their old content to the new URL format, bad web development!

But I digress.

I wanted to take this as an opportunity to update my links, as well as expand on some of the topics discussed in my earlier post about the legalities of building your own firearms. Namely, can you sell a home built firearm without a serial number?

922(r) Compliance Calculator

922(r) Compliance

There are a few 922(r) compliance worksheets floating around on the internet, most are really good but quite a few are dated, not functional, and as I discovered when I started my Galil build, inaccurate. I wanted to provide a more up to date resource, and here it is!

How to Fix AK47 Trigger Slap

AK47 Trigger Slap Animation

Trigger slap is a minor, yet common problem shooters of the AKM pattern rifle may experience. This post will get into detail about what trigger slap is, and the specific point during cycling that it happens. I've also provided instructions on how to fix it, as well as discussing a few myths circulating online about trigger slap.

    Adam,
    Excellent write-up on this subject. I have observed another problem with the enlarged Bulgarian style trigger guard rivet and the new ALG AKT triggers. After about 1000 to 3000 rounds, a fellow rifle classmate had his ALG trigger disconnector split in half (bisecting the tail and the hook). The enlarged rivet was nearly beaten down half way with a outline of the tail. This happened once at 3000 rounds and then again at 1000 rounds. So, the englarged rivet puts a lot of additional stress on the disconnector. In addition, the shortened travel of the ALG trigger allows even less room for disconnector travel. I believe the solution to this would be simply to grind off the ALG disconnector tail. Or, harder disconnector spring? Thoughts? Obviously ALG/Geissle will have to rethink think their disconnector design as most Arsenal AK's have the enlarged rivet. This is evident as even my Egyptian Maadi build has a small dent in the standard sized rivet with the ALG disconnector.

      Good points Chang, thanks for the feedback. Very interesting to hear about the failures and at what round count they occurred. The solution you've suggested will work for semi-auto AKs, but the select fire version would still need the disconnector tail, so removing that wouldn't be the solution for AKs as a whole.

      The problem happens when the bottom of the disconnector impacts the trigger, and pushes the trigger forward. The solution would be to remove material from either of those surfaces until the disconnector stops pushing the trigger forward.

    Thanks for your explanation, I replaced original trigger on my Vepr .308 with ALG-Ak and it was a lot of work with my dremel, after testing rifle at my range I found that I got pretty nesty slop, I removed additional metal as you suggested today and will try again soon. Vepr 308 needs a lot of dremeling but ALG is still much better than one installed by Fime.

    What is $image? Is it the logical path for the image on the server? Is it the URL from the browser? Is it the absolute path?

      Hey Sin, $image is the full URL of the image. Twitter grabs the image from that URL and re-hosts it on its servers.

      Check out the example call at the bottom of the code snippet.

      Hope that helps!

    Adam, did you already try adding meta data to an image, I have tried media/metadata/create calling codeBird->media-metadata-create, but the function is not found. I am trying to upload a single picture and I believe it needs to be a multiple picture setup for this to wotk? What do you think?

    This is a great help! Thanks so much for posting this. I was using Twitter OAuth REST API Library, then I did a google search for a simple way to post media to Twitter and found this, which is how I found out about codebird! It seems so simple and lightweight. I really like it!

    I have a question though. I am trying to post video, an MP4 to twitter. I used the basic example code for video posting included in codebird and used your idea of turning it into a function like you did here for this image upload example.

    The one thing the function is missing is some error handling so the function returns the error message that twitter replied with, or true if no errors were returned, and a tweet could be posted with the attached video. Any idea on how to best accomplish this? Do you already have a video upload codebird example post somewhere on your blog that I missed maybe? Do you have other examples using codebird in functions with error handling? Thanks a lot for the examples and all the help you are providing! AWESOME!
