  • Cordova/PhoneGap Facebook Integration without Plugin

    Christophe Coenraets
    7 Apr 2014 | 8:36 am
    04/08/2014 update: pushed version 0.2 with a couple of bug fixes. Many consumer apps provide a Facebook Login option, as well as other Facebook integration features such as posting to your feed, getting your list of friends, etc. Cordova has a Facebook Plugin that makes that integration easy. Internally, the plugin uses both the Native and the JavaScript implementations of the Facebook SDK, and historically, it has sometimes been hard for the plugin to keep up with new versions of these SDKs, as well as new versions of Cordova. In a recent Cordova project, I integrated with Facebook without…

    This is my third and last article in a series dedicated to building dynamic mobile dashboards with D3, ChartJS, and other data visualization libraries on top of the Salesforce platform. The source code is always the same, but each post focuses on a different deployment option: In the first article, I showed how to deploy the dashboards in a hybrid app using Cordova and the Mobile SDK. In the second article, I demonstrated how to deploy the same dashboards in Visualforce pages.

  • Adding an Extension SDK dependency to your NuGet package

    Tim Heuer
    25 Nov 2013 | 5:08 pm
    Recently I’ve been writing a few XAML Behaviors for Callisto and looking to take some contributions on this front as well.  One thing that I realized is that this will bring in a new dependency for my toolkit.  I’m still trying to figure out if I want to do that or not, but that’s not what this post is about.  My #1 consumers of Callisto are using the NuGet package.  I also distribute Callisto through the Visual Studio gallery as an Extension SDK.  What’s the difference you ask? Extension SDK vs. NuGet package While not an official answer, this is my basic definition I always…

  • Using AppBarButton in Windows 8.1

    Tim Heuer
    29 Oct 2013 | 5:20 pm
    In a previous post I talked about removing the dependency on StandardStyles.xaml from your Windows 8.1 projects.  One of those tips noted that a popular use of the styles in that helper file was the AppBarButton styles and the roughly 200 different glyphs used for AppBarButtons.  I thought I’d dig a little deeper quickly on the use of AppBarButton since I received a few pieces of email about it. Typical Scenario – Symbol Icons The AppBarButtonclass is new in Windows 8.1 and primarily intended for use the CommandBar scenario, providing the UI, behavior and accessibility needs to the…
  • Getting rid of StandardStyles.xaml in Windows 8.1

    Tim Heuer
    29 Oct 2013 | 9:19 am
    If you’ve created a Windows 8 app using XAML then you’ve likely seen a file in the project called StandardStyles.xaml in the Common folder and merged in with your application.  As I’ve seen apps developed I’ve seen people pretty much treat this as a system component and not change it at all.  Sometimes that’s good, but mostly it has been bad.  There are a lot of apps that I’ve seen that don’t use a lot of the styles in that dictionary, but don’t do anything to trim the file or even remove it if not needed. The file was included in Windows 8 Visual Studio project templates…

    WebJars were created to work well with Content Deliver Networks (CDNs) and now thanks to jsDelivr there is a great public CDN hosting all of the WebJar assets! jsDelivr is “a free super-fast CDN for developers and webmasters.” What a perfect match for WebJars! Here is how it works… Just prefix //cdn.jsdelivr.net in front of your WebJar asset URLs. That’s it! For instance, if the URL you setup to jquery.js is /webjars/jquery/2.1.0/jquery.js then to use the jsDelivr CDN the URL would be: //cdn.jsdelivr.net/webjars/jquery/2.1.0/jquery.js Because I’m on planes a lot…

    The 2007 introduction of the iPhone ushered in a new era of mobility. We now expect our applications and data to be accessible on the most convenient network-connected device. Our appetite for mobile technology has resulted in a massive influx of mobile devices supporting a myriad of different mobile operating systems. Many application developers soon realized the inefficiency of developing native applications in this multi-device, multi-platform world. They chose instead to embrace web technology and the emerging open standards around HTML5. The shift, now called hybrid app development,…

  • Introducing Juniper: SproutCore app + annotated source

    Dave
    31 Mar 2014 | 9:29 am
    It’s been noted often that there’s a serious lack of production-level SproutCore apps with readable source code. Developers often learn best by poking at something and seeing how it works, but until now there hasn’t been anywhere to go. With an eye towards improving that situation, I’m excited to announce Juniper, a SproutCore app and annotated codebase. Check it out: http://juniper.dcporter.net/ I wrote a fuller introduction here, and the source code itself is here. If you’re new to SproutCore, or wondering if it’s right for your project, give it a poke!

    Although it has been out for a couple weeks already, I had never officially announced the completion of the SproutCore Web Application Development book in this blog. So for anyone that has been waiting for a book on SproutCore, you should know that it has finally been completed and you can purchase a copy here. This book covers almost every aspect of SproutCore with detailed explorations of the runtime environment, the MVC layers that SproutCore brings, using statecharts, interacting with multiple remote data stores and many many other topics all the way through to unit testing and deploying…
  • SproutCore 1.10.2 Release

    SproutCore
    25 Nov 2013 | 11:24 am
    SproutCore 1.10.2 is now available. This is a patch level release and includes the following fixes: Fixed problems with keypress handling in IE8 and Opera. Fixed the swap transition plugin, SC.ContainerView.REVEAL, to properly reset the content view’s layout after transitioning out. Fixed a problem with SC.View.prototype.cancelAnimation(SC.LayoutState.CURRENT) that failed to stop at the proper top or left positions when using CSS transform animations when the top or left values were negative. This also improves the SC.ContainerView.PUSH transition, making it possible to push multiple…

    4 Nov 2013 | 11:52 am
    This post is about one of the most important goals of SproutCore, making web app development easier and faster. SproutCore has always been largely about really fast app performance, but in many ways the performance benchmarks of a framework are only as good as the real world performance of the developers using that framework. Therefore, we wanted to highlight a number of recent additions to SproutCore purely for the purpose of helping developers create even faster SproutCore applications even faster. For instance, one of the least publicized changes in version 1.10 is the large number of…
  • v1.10 Upgrade Tips: New SC.SplitView

    Dave
    28 Oct 2013 | 4:48 pm
    One of the underpublicized changes we made in v1.10 was the inclusion of a great new SC.SplitView. The existing view was broken in some key ways, and the new view, which had been marinating in an experimental framework for some time, was snazzy and stable. We decided that few enough people had gotten SplitView working in their production apps that we could afford to swap in the new view, but it’s API-noncompliant and we should have made a bigger deal about it. Sorry about that! Luckily, updating to the new SplitView is easy. The most important thing to do is mix SC.SplitChild into your…

  • Learning, Every Day

    Nick Pettit
    22 Apr 2014 | 6:56 am
    I try to learn something new every day. It might relate to personal finances, physical health, computer programming, or any other topic — and the learning might take place for a few minutes or from sunrise to sunset. Every time I learn something, I typically observe a corresponding increase in my quality of life. This is why I believe it’s so critical to establish learning as a lifelong skill. Learning to Conquer Fear Everyone has a natural fear of the unknown, which can be a huge driver of stress: Am I saving enough money? Should my car be making that noise? Am I doing this exercise…

    Amanda Langley (Photo courtesy to Treehouse) A few years before she graduated from college in 2013, Amanda Langley shifted her focus from filmmaking to computer engineering. Langley was good at math and liked the challenge of logic and abstract thinking in her computer science class. She was just one of a handful of women in her class of more than 100 students at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. But the lack of gender diversity didn’t stop her from excelling in her courses and landing a job at Centare in Milwaukee six months before graduation. She is now a programmer for the software…

    (Figure out how to fill up the freelance pig. Photo by Mike Tungate / Flickr) If there’s one question I’m asked by web designers and developers more than any other, it’s how to figure out what to charge for a freelance project. Sure, we want to be fair to the client. But we also want to be fair to ourselves and make a reasonable profit. It’s never a happy time to finish a design or development project and realize we lost our shirt. There are several ways web freelancers estimate projects. They can charge by the hour, by the project, by retainer, by bartering, by cost per…
  • Do You Really Need a Computer Science Degree?

    (Options beyond a degree are important. Flickr photo by Faruk Ateş) Most electronic devices use software and most businesses are backed with software, whether on computers or in the cloud. All this requires software and web development. The good news for programmers? There is no sign of computer-related job shortages. “Software drives Amazon recommendations, the auto-complete suggestions and corrections as you type, banking transactions, the Mars Curiosity rover, and stock trades,” says Jacob Gulotta, a 28-year-old server developer at DoubleDown Interactive in Seattle.

    A well designed, interactive website is essential in today’s highly competitive, digital business market. A static, rarely changing business website was passable in the early years of the internet, as few businesses understood online marketing. A cursory, basic website was all you needed to have a leg up over your competition. In today’s fast paced online world, interactive programming languages, like Java, have made exciting and dynamic websites a necessity. Interactive websites attract more visitors than a static page because they offer constantly updated content. Static…

    When one thinks of computer science and technology, there’s usually a vision of a rapidly evolving landscape. And, to be fair, this usually is the case. However, every now and then the IT world hits on something which proves quite difficult to overcome. Arguably the largest in recent memory have to do with flash animation. To modern eyes, this might seem rather surprising. Flash is almost as common as HTML itself these days. However, it’s easy to look at the aftereffects and forget the reason it happened. Flash really gained popularity around the year 2000. People who used…

    When it comes to programming you may feel like you are a total nincompoop. But as the business owner, it may be in your best interest to know what programming languages are available and which works best for you. There seems to be a lot of misunderstandings when it comes to software use in the business world. What programming language should the business use? Which is better? What should the coding language be used for? For business owners, this can be a difficult decision because coding languages are so technical.

    Software test automation has been the most controversial activity in any organization. In most of the organizations, it starts with lot of potential to reduce the test efforts drastically and magically, but ends up in spending unreasonably high amount of efforts in maintaining the developed automation suite. The ROI becomes non-achievable and finally management decides to switch back to manual testing. Some of the main reasons for failure of Software Test automation initiatives are: Continuous changes in requirements and UI object properties Requirement of highly skilled programmer (Java / C#…
  • iOS Memory Management and ARC

    Johnson Goveas
    4 Apr 2014 | 4:20 am
    Since Apple introduced Automatic Reference Counting (ARC), it has eased life of a developer to concentrate on business logic and let ARC handle memory. Developers who have started using ObjectiveC and creating iOS Apps recently, misinterpret ARC as garbage collection. ARC is not garbage collection as provided by JAVA and .NET runtimes, but a compile time feature that is executed somewhere between Preprocessor and compiler. To understand ARC, a developer should first understand ObjectiveC’s “Object ownership” mechanism. The concept of “Object ownership” just implies that a class…
