[Blog Tips] How to embed twitter timeline in your blog and limit the tweet number

How to embed twitter timeline in your blog

I embedded the timeline of twitter to my blog so I write how to do it. At first, you have to get the html code to embed your timeline. Go to your home of twitter and copy the URL.

After that go to Twitter Publish and paste the URL and click the button.

Select the left side to embed your timeline.

Then you can get embed code so copy and put it on your blog where you want to embed.

How to limit the number of tweets

You might find the timeline is too long for your blog. Then limit the tweet number. Add data-tweet-limit="*" to your embed code.

<a class="twitter-timeline" href="https://twitter.com/TwitterDev" data-tweet-limit="3"> Tweets by @TwitterDev </a>

3 is the number of tweets so you can change it as you like.

Then you can limit the number of tweets like this:

[Pixel Arts] I've started to practice making pixel arts

Recently I make pixel arts using dotpict, a smartphone app to draw pixel arts This is a good way to make pixel arts to practice while commuting and it's easy to draw. I often use free images when I make a game but I try to make images for games by myself so that's why I practice pixel arts. This is my first pixel arts drawn by dotpict.

Mr. polar bear

I like polar bears and North pole. I was inspired by this poster. This is a poster for a movie of Doraemon. Actually I don't like so much Doraemon but I was shocked when I saw it. It is a simple but beautiful picture and I feel something nostalgic from this painting. That's why I draw North pole this time. By the way I found a good twitter account to practice pixel arts. It's @Pixel_Dailies. This account gives us to make a pixel art every day. When I found this account, the theme was "cherry" so I made this one:

midnight cherry

I think cherry has an image of bright and adorable so I try to add a dark and cool atmosphere to it. I'm not sure if you feel that way from this painting but I hope so :) My pixel arts can be seen here.

[GameDev] I joined "I Can't Draw But Want To Make A Game (Again)" game jam on itch.io!

I've joined a fantastic game jam!

I've joined a fantastic game jam named "I Can't Draw But Want To Make A Game (Again)." This is my first game jam on itch.io and it was a really exciting game jam everybody did nice works. This is my game "Fly High, Suring Duck!"

It is so casual and simple but I tried to make it easy to play and fun and I'm really glad some people say it's super fun! I enjoyed this exciting game jam and absolutely join next time! Also I enjoyed playing games submitted on itch.io. I'm planning to write reviews about the games I played and write how those games are great and fascinating on this blog. After posting it on the blog I will also post it on twitter so if you would like to find new games please check it out!

[Unity tips] Clear DOTwenn if it doesn't work after loading another sccene

DOTween didn't work after loading another scene

I used DOTween for "Fly High, Surfing Duck!" to rotate the duck in the air like the following tweet:
I used the following code to rotate the duck:
transform.DOLocalRotate(new Vector3(0, 0, 360f), 1f, RotateMode.FastBeyond360)
It didn't work after reloading the scene by the following code:

Use DOTween.Clear before reloading another scene

I could fix this problem by putting the following code before loading another scene:

[Diary] I've made a blog!

Hi, I'm Wakky from Japan. I am a solo indie developer and made some games using Unity. I made this blog to post the following things:

  • the games I'm developing.
  • reviews for indie games.
  • tips for making games especially by Unity.

Several weeks ago I made an account for twitter to post about my games and I found it's so fun and exciting to communicate with indie developers all over the world.

I'd like to make this blog a base for activities related to indie games. I'll try to write about my games frequently and I'm looking forward to playing fantastic indie games and reviewing them! I'm not a native English speaker so sometimes I might use weird English but I hope you'll read and enjoy my posts :)
