The Cactapedia (Cactus Encyclopedia)

CodingCactus (2073)

Was originally, just a bit of a joke, but I decided to continue it a bit more, because pretty much anything is better than just sitting around during lock down.


So, here is the beginning of The Cactapedia. I started with doing lots of cacti alphabetically (2), but then decide to just do the ones that I thought looked pretty cool.


Here is @ChezCoder's version of it, with extra JS functionality:

Edit: Added Prickly Pear (Opuntia ficus-indica). Suggested by @NoelBryan.
Edit2: Added Cylindropuntia cholla. Suggested by @ipastrano.
Edit3: Added Parodia leninghausii. Suggested by @LizFoster.
Edit4: Added Candelabra Cactus (Myrtillocactus Cochal), Corynopuntia Invicta, Red Torch Cactus (Echinopsis Huascha). Suggested by ME.
Edit5: Added Astrophytum asterias. Suggested by @Warhawk947.
Edit6: Added more readable font option on home page. Suggested by @Nettakrim.
Edit7: Added Golden Barrel (Echinocactus grusonii) and Hedgehog Cactus (Echinocereus engelmannii). Suggested by @IndyCarter.
Edit*: Added Peyote (Lophophora williamsii). Suggested by @DannyIsCoding


Any suggestions for cacti to be added are more than welcome :)

maybe in the background you could add a picture of a cactus

@iterate maybe, it might make it quite hard to read. What type of cactus?

iterate (93)

@CodingCactus well I'm not an expert on cacti but maybe a dark green cactus so it won't blend

iterate (93)

@CodingCactus I think it would be a nice touch because your website is nice but its plain

CodingCactus (2073)

@iterate What do you think about it now?

iterate (93)

@CodingCactus the picture looks great! Though I don't really like the gray box around the text maybe you could remove it.And I hope you see what I meant because I think the picture really gives it life.

CodingCactus (2073)

@iterate I've done that now, looks better thanks :)

CodingCactus (2073)

@iterate I was wondering about the red links, can you read them alright? Do you know if there is a better colour that I could use?

iterate (93)

@CodingCactus I think that you should use a color close to yellow. If you can't think of any color I would recommend using yellow

iterate (93)

@CodingCactus could you use a color in between yellow and your orange

@CodingCactus yaay
(how do you make your letters so big)

CodingCactus (2073)

@iterate put a # with a space in front

@CodingCactus

I have never seen that face and I'm just combining everything and is the line a nose or a tear

CodingCactus (2073)

@iterate what are you confused by?

CodingCactus (2073)

@iterate ohhhhh...
I didn't read the whole comment, it's a nose

iterate (93)
