I thought sharing it with you guys. For now I would say it's for "beginner" speedcubers... This is not an exhaustive collection of algorithms yet but it will grow bigger over time.

The purpose of this site was to have the resources everyone at home needs in a single location. I wanted the content to be optimized for all screen sizes from older iPods, to my retina Macbook Pro or to our 29inch desktop monitor. The main goal was to efficiently fit as many algs as possible in one screen so that we can get rid of messy paper cheat sheets around the house! (portrait or landscape screen as well).

Enjoy!


LATEST UPDATE

Long overdue update!

The site popularity is growing, and many of you shared meaningful feedback in the last 2 years. Thank you for your continuous engagement and sharing areas of improvements that matters to you. Let's take a look at the latest changes:

New Features & Updates
- Progressive Web App capability added (Desktop, iOS, Android) for offline experience
- CSS "Print" stylesheets updated for Print and Print to PDF capability
- Fix Color Tiles on PLL Ub Perm case images
- Code Maintenance, Updates and Performance Improvements
Note: I often make small changes to the layout. If things looks weird or does not align properly from one session to another try to delete your browsing history/cache and launch the app/site again.

Perhaps you can share with me what you would like next?

Looks like it's on the way to be a great site. When your done i would like to see where you can download a PDF of all the cheat sheets.

Thanks for the feedback #Zerksies! I appreciate :) I don't think I will ever create downloadable PDFs for this site. There is already plenty of good printable PDFs out there (like on www.cubeskills.com). The whole point of making a "responsive" website is to get rid of paper / printable PDFs. (responsive website means a website that can be viewed from any screen sizes and devices with optimal content placement => ipod touch, phones, tablets desktop monitors, etc.)

Good question, I didn't even know it existed. lol Looks like a database site with ton of info. I can see how it can overwhelming for beginners or the younger cubers. The twisty.js visualization does not seem to work yet. :( Great source though I like it! I might link to it for future algs I add to the site. Thanks for sharing.

This is a great alternative. Is the plan to have an app? If so that is very convenient for no internet drives/ flights and such.
I have no plans yet but I am open to suggestions. If the site get some traction/popularity, sure, I can look into into creating an app for offline use at some point. In the mean time, I think modern desktop browsers allow offline view of websites but I am not sure about mobile browsers. I'll see how the community respond to this site and we'll go from there.

I have some ideas.
1. A PDF for downloading algs
2. A place on your profile pic that shows what % of an alg set that you know
3. You check off an alg once learned
4. Have a place to request algs and alg sets
5. A place to share algs you use for others to use
6. A way to race an another user to learn an alg set, and you get notification when you lose

Duly noted. Thanks for showing interest! :)

You're well on your way to pass alg.db ! I think you are the first person to come up with names for all 57 OLLs Like some other people mentioned an app would be nice, also having an, "Alg Junk Yard." Where any user can place the algs they know. And maybe sometime adding COLL, WV, ZBLL???

Sweet updates, Keep it up! Love the patterns. Think once new algs are added, you are new best site! Alg junk yard... Please! What is 2-4F’ mean?

Thanks! I think Alg.db serve another purpose, it's an incredible source of algorithm variations. I wanted cubingcheatsheet.com to focus on the user experience first rather than having tons of algs for each cases. I don't know all the methods but as I add alg sets I'll keep doing researches to make I include the most easy to learn and widely accepted algs. I am always open to recommendations in this regard.

If ever the site get enough traction to build an app or webapp, I'll definitely consider an "alg junk ward" feature. Seems the logical and useful thing to do.

I picked up the names for the OLL cases around the web. I just consolidated my research on the site for everyone's benefits. :)

Thanks for the feedback! It means a lot.

Good question! I picked up this notation on alg.cubing.net. It translate to: "Turn the 2nd to the 4th layer from the Front face anti-clock wise." You can visualize the alg sequence on a virtual cube here and pause each step. You will be able to see what each sequence steps translate to on a virtual cube.

Tips for website algorithm pages:
  1. Click or tap any case image to view the algorithm variations. If I couldn’t find any variants, I linked the source where I found the algorithm.
  2. Click or tap any algorithm sequence to visualize the steps on a virtual cube on alg.cubing.net by Lucas Garron.
