My personal website and portfolio.

Please note that this is a placeholder site. This is not representative of the websites that I can create.
I’m a Junior computer science student in a specialty school in Arizona. I am nearly entirely self-taught, I spend most of my personal time programming, and occasionally playing games with friends. I value user experience, performance, maintainability and quality of code. I always try my best to write software the best way I know how to. I try by best to make clean, concise source code that will subsequently be maintainable in the future.
My favorite languages are D and Python.
My first real programming language was Java, with which I created my first Minecraft mod. I’ve since forgotten most of what I knew about it.
No project is ever truly complete. If there are bugs, or important features that need to be fixed or added, I will do so. Many projects marked as “complete” are simply in a functioning state, which I would personally consider to be ready for public release.
- Search Deflector
- An alternative to EdgeDeflector and SearchWithMyBrowser that redirects searches to any search engine of your choice.
- This is what I would consider to be my most successful project. It is additionally where I taught myself D.
Maybe list on Microsoft Store, package as UWP (TODO).
- Done! You can get the store version here.
- Clone by Path
- A simple command that, when invoked, attempts to parse a repository path from your current working directory path.
- VS Code SmoothType
- An extension to add a smooth typing animation to Visual Studio Code, similar to Microsoft Office and the Windows 10 Mail app.
- See it on the Marketplace.
- Native Dark
- Theme for Firefox Quantum that was originally intended to match your Windows accent color and style the browser appropriately. It has since grown into a much larger cross-platform WebExtension.
- Second-place winner of the Firefox Quantum Extensions Challenge.
- Essential Additions
- My very first ever experience programming (and in creating a semi-successful project). The original was for MC 1.7.10.
- First experience with basic trigonometry was with the Ender Eye block, finding the player and watching them like an eyeball.
- Now unmaintained. The website is broken, but I had some cool stuff on there, such as the Releases page.
- I decompiled and demangled the sources manually, and updated the mod for all versions up to 1.11.2.
- The original sources were written when I was approximately 9 years old, and I found a compiled archive on an old flash drive. For the sake of practice, I re-learned Java to rewrite the mod completely, in the 1.7.10 branch.
- On the CurseForge project page there is a lot more information about what this does, along with some nice screenshots.
- GitHub Extended
- A WebExtension to add metadata to GitHub’s website, notmally only accessible through their API.
- Example: Download counts.
- Experimental lightweight alternative to Rainmeter, low system resources and high performance.
- New Style Widgets
- Fast and lightweight GUI library built on top of modules drom Adam’s arsd.
- Tiling psuedo-window manager on Windows.
- A simple and to-the-point program to imitate the functionality of tiling window managers on Linux, such as bspwm and i3wm.
- Full control over hotkeys to manage the positioning of windows.
Almost all of the forked repositories that I have contributed can be found in my “Forked Repositories” organization on GitHub (namespace
spikespaz-forks). If the fork is dramatic enough to be considered a spin-off project, they will be hosted in my normal user account, spikespaz.
Some of these are Awesome Lists (curated lists of cool stuff relating to a topic). I try to add my projects (if they are worthy) to lists for visibility, to bring in more users and garner interest.
- Augment Echo’s Website
- Styling fixes, content improvement, general help for my friend.
- Basically all of the PRs for that repository are by me.

- This is my Discord server that I am the founder of.
- I created the GitHub organization to be the home of community projects.

- Fork of the Minecraft Mod Surge. This is now being updated by the original author.
- The author was inactive to I took the initiative to fork the project and create an unofficial port to 1.11.2.
- Originally created for use in several of my mod packs.
- Like Surge, a fork of iChun’s coremod to resolve outdated dependencies in Mob Dismemberment.
- Updated to Minecraft 1.11.2.
- Mob Dismemberment
- Another 1.11.2 port of a favorite Minecraft mod by iChun.
- Dependant on my iChunUtil 1.11.2 fork.

- Maybe use the same UI as Reborn fork, port backend. Or use a CSS-only framework and keep it light.
- Currently waiting for Ultralight to support SWIG.
- µTerm (Micro Term)
- Micro Term (abbreviated µTerm or uTerm,
230) is a very minimal terminal emulator written using Ultralight and Xterm.js.
- Currently waiting for Ultralight to support SWIG.
- WebExtension similar to TabsAside!
- More features and a better interface, using custom CSS.
- RepRap 3D
- Does same thing as Repetier Host, Cura.
- Does it better, with a nice interface in Qt, or maybe Ultralight (because it’s fast).
- Keep features like Overrides and Slicing engines from Repetier.
- Keep the prettiness of Cura’s interface, but make it more useful.
- Make it not slow, because Cura is painful. Make it not ugly like Repetier.
- Use the actual APIs for the slicers. I think Repetier and Cura use the executable CLI.
- Maybe a web server for Raspberry Pi?
- Use libdparse (or alternative) to parse symbols.
- Output valid D/DI code for use by IntelliSense autocompletion.
