    Introduction Messaging systems are used to communicate in larger code bases by helping decouple classes that need to know about changes or happenings in certain areas of the code . One of Object Oriented Programming‘s core concepts is encapsulation. How you decide to allow objects to talk to each other has pro’s and con’s for each method and it’s good to know your options as you can use many together in effective hybrid approaches.

  • Prepping Icons for Yosemite Dark Mode

    Now that Yosemite (OS X 10.10) is in the wild, you may or may not have tried the new dark ui mode. All this really means is that it will make your dock and menu bar black. You can switch to dark mode by checking off the option in the General section of System Preferences as shown below. Once you switch to dark mode you may notice that a lot of icons either are invisible or look like crap. For example, the Wallpaper by Behance app that we recently released shows no icon when in dark mode. The fix doesn’t involve providing an alternate icon for dark mode. The solution is actually…
  • Docker and Microsoft: Integrating Docker with Windows Server and Microsoft Azure

    ScottGu's Blog
    15 Oct 2014 | 6:30 am
    I’m excited to announce today that Microsoft is partnering with Docker, Inc to enable great container-based development experiences on Linux, Windows Server and Microsoft Azure. Docker is an open platform that enables developers and administrators to build, ship, and run distributed applications. Consisting of Docker Engine, a lightweight runtime and packaging tool, and Docker Hub, a cloud service for sharing applications and automating workflows, Docker enables apps to be quickly assembled from components and eliminates the friction between development, QA, and production environments.

    1 Jan 2014 | 10:03 am
    2013 was a great year for me to learn more about fitness and health. I tried 3 specific diet changes: a caloric deficit, a vegetarian diet, and a caloric increase (bulk phase). Fitness wise I tried #P90X2 , #BodyBeast , and my own custom routine I put together from my own research. As you can see from the charts I lost a ton of fat and weight through P90X, but P90X2 really pushed me to the lowest body fat and weight I’ve ever been since in my teen years (I’m 34).   Sadly, the caloric deficit, which consists of eating 500 to 300 calories less per day then you need was…
  • Trade Offs in Cyber Security by Dan Geer

    Some wonderfully choice quotes from this cyber security essay by Dan Geer. Quite long, but (somewhat?) clearly illustrates the challenges of living in a society where there is so much data about you easily accessible, even if you don’t actually intentionally contribute. Additionally, he covers the increasing struggle how we conform to these loss of freedoms which is the antithesis of being an American, yet we keep doing it. While he has a call out to fight it, as far as I can see, there aren’t any easy/obvious solutions, nor did he provide any. In the 21st century, we have a…

    I’m not involved. I am not saying I’m for/against ACA. That said, a few things I’ve gleaned from a few of the technical views on the internet that weren’t from a higher profile source such as the NY Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/10/21/us/insurance-site-seen-needing-weeks-to-fix.html First, when management says “a few weeks”, what that really means is a few months. Yes, months. Second, because it’s so big with many of the parts not under the purview of the contractor, they can’t rewrite it. That means, it’ll take 2 times or more…

    As you know I have been doing Cocoa development for a while now. You will see some of my Adobe work very soon, but in the meantime, my first personal app called Design Finder is now available on the Mac App Store. The idea for this app came about because I’m always searching my hard drive for visual assets to use for FPO or just for inspiration. There are a staggering number of visual files on OS X that are buried inside of system frameworks, application packages, and other hard-to-search places. Spotlight just plain sucks for this purpose and is restricted as to where it can search. On…

    Well today Apple announced their new programming language called Swift. This is very similar in syntax to what the next version of JavaScript will look like. I’m pretty excited about it even though I spent all that time learning Objective-C.

Some important notes I haven’t had the time to update the extension to work in the latest version of Brackets. It wouldn’t take much work to do but I can’t be sure as I’ve haven’t done any JS work in over 6 months. It would be great if someone wanted to work on this and contribute the code back.

  • Adjusting NSWindow styles at runtime

    Here is another snippet of code that I wanted to document here. In my current project I needed to make the window resizable on some screens and not resizable on others. You usually set the window styles in Interface Builder but you can do it programmatically using the setStyleMask method. You use the unary complement bitwise operator (~) to remove a particular style. Below is the code to make a window resizable and and also not resizable: // Make window resizable [window setStyleMask:[window styleMask] | NSResizableWindowMask]; // Make it not resizable [window setStyleMask:[window styleMask]…

  • Jekyll on Heroku

    James Ward
    24 Sep 2014 | 12:46 pm
    Jekyll is simple static content compiler popularized by GitHub Pages. If you use Jekyll in a GitHub repo a static website will automatically be created for you by running Jekyll on your content sources (e.g. Markdown). That works well but there are cases where it is nice to deploy a Jekyll site on Heroku. After trying (and failing) to follow many of the existing blogs about running Jekyll on Heroku, I cornered my coworker Terence Lee and got some help. Turns out it is pretty simple. Not interested in the details? Skip right to a diff that makes a Jekyll site deployable on Heroku or start from…

Now the Salesforce name is a legacy artifact of that past. This is like the name Frigidaire which is still the name for a company that now produces much more than Frigidaires (i.e. Refrigerators).

  • Using Plugins and Mixins in Your Sencha Apps

    23 Oct 2014 | 7:55 am
    Introduction When extending the functionality of a framework class, you generally write the new functionality directly into the derived class. However, if you need that same functionality to exist in multiple components, the most efficient option may be to define it in a plugin or mixin. Plugins and mixins are classes that add extra functionality to another class. In this article, we’ll talk about what these classes are, how they differ, and how they work. I’ve also included Sencha Fiddle examples to illustrate these concepts. What is a Plugin and How Do I Use it? A plugin is a…

However, there are also a number of important unresolved bugs which directly impact hybrid applications. Major version upgrades are always tedious; hybrid applications faced similar problems when iOS7 was first released. The reality is that many developers…

While we do encourage users to use these new additions, we understand that the default style may not be ideal in all circumstances. In fact, there may be situations in which the focused cell border is not desired at all. If you would like to make adjustments to the focus style, it's best to change these properties by modifying your SASS variables and recompiling your styles. You can find the cell focus SASS variables on the Grid View. They currently…

This attack was aimed at defacing our sites, and did not inject malware like the attack that was reported on September 18th by RiskIQ. We believe that these are separate incidents that may have used the same attack vector. We took the site down as soon as we realized there was a compromise and cleaned the infected files.

    FlexMonkey
    29 Sep 2014 | 4:30 pm
    For the last few years, almost all of the Flex projects I've worked on have used the Presentation Model (PM) pattern along with the Parsley application framework for dependency injection. Broadly speaking, a presentation model holds the presentational state and behavioural logic of an application and, in doing so, minimises the amount of code in view controls. Because several views can utilise the same presentation model, properties such as state can be shared between them.Views hold a strongly typed reference to the presentation model so they…

    We have good news for anyone using the experimental polymorphism framework from within SproutCore. You’ll be glad to know that it has now made its way into the official datastore framework as part of SC.Record. If you have been using this framework, you’ll be even more glad to learn that polymorphic records are now significantly faster and more memory efficient. As well, this change includes a critical bug fix that resulted in polymorphic records getting mismatched when their id was changed. For those interested in what this change means, here’s how it works. First, if…

It allowed us to automate SproutCore’s own framework unit tests, giving us awesome continuous integration support right in GitHub via the great Travis-CI service. If you use CoreTest, SproutCore’s built-in (QUnit-like) unit test framework, then you can also use this to run your own tests from the command line – meaning you can automate it, and hook it up to your own CI scaffolding. It’s impossible to overstate the impact that continuous, automatic unit testing has on the quality and stability…

    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 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…

  • New Course: Android Data Persistence

    Gill Carson
    23 Oct 2014 | 10:49 am
    Being able to save or persist data within our apps is an important fundamental skill. It enables our users to save their work, remember their preferences, store all types of files for reuse, and more. These features are evident to some degree in almost every application. In this course, we will be learning about the different ways in which we can persist data in our apps. We will be creating an app which can make memes in order to learn about these different concepts. By the end, we will know what types of considerations come into play when developing an app with data persistence features.

Nick Pettit, teaching accessibility from The Construct in 2011. The actual first Treehouse set, built at our offices in Orlando, Florida in 2012, should look a bit more familiar: the light table, the bookshelves, the window overlooking the treetops (insert your Return of the Jedi jokes here, we’ve heard all of them).

    As web features barrel ahead, web typography advances with it. We now have more control over type than ever before.

  • Real-Time 3D on the Web

    22 Oct 2014 | 6:35 am
    When you watch an animated Pixar movie, the 3D graphics are extremely detailed and realistic because they’re “pre-rendered”. Each frame may have taken many hours or days for the computer to render and then later you watch those rendered frames in a finished sequence. “Real-time” imagery typically renders frames at around 60 times per second (or 60fps) and it’s used in interactive environments like games and the web, because you cannot predict what the user will do next. My first experience with real-time 3D computer graphics was 20 years ago in the days…

    Read original post at Matt Lacey's BlogLast month, both Microsoft and AdDuplex released statistics which include figures for Windows Phone 7.X usage. As a number of developers and companies are starting to think more about how long they continue to support WP7.x devices (I've spoken with a few recently) I thought it was worth looking at this subject in a bit of detail and to consider why the figures from Microsoft and AdDuplex are so different.
