Existing User?

If so, you will have to reset your password in order to login. We switched to a more secure password hashing algorithm but could not migrate your encrypted passwords over. So please use the forgot password page to get up and running.

The HomeMarks browser bookmarklet has been completely rewritten. After you log in, please install the latest browser bookmarklet in your bookmark bar.

Lastly, the native HomeMarks iPhone application has been discontinued. HomeMarks v3 has been written for the desktop and tablet devices, specifically the iPad. We plan on releasing a updated iPhone application but that will likely be a few months down the road. In the meantime, use the web application from your iPhone's mobile safari and stay tuned for updates.

What's New

The Nerdy Details

HomeMarks v2 was written almost 6 years ago. and its age was showing. Back then there were no fancy JavaScript MVC frameworks. I had written my own entirely in Prototype.js. Nowadays I write all my JavaScript using CoffeeScript and for this particular project used Spine.js, a much lighter weight version of the popular Backbone.js framework.

The HomeMarks application is my own custom design that leverages some rather clever CSS preprocessor techniques using Sass. Its elegant simplicity belies many of its technical achievements. Over the coming months I hope to share many of them on the HomeMarks blog. So stay tunned and thanks for stopping by!
