  • Grabbing Kuler color theme values for code

    5 Jul 2014 | 10:13 am
    I am using a lot of Adobe Kuler color themes in one of my projects. However, there is not a quick way to get the color theme information in a format that is easy to use in code (I have been manually copying and pasting each individual color value). I was going to write a Chrome content script, but then found out it can't read variables from the page. So, I put together a quick code snippet that you can paste into the Chrome developer console, which will grab the colors and format them so they are easy to use in code. To use, visit a color theme, open the developer console, and paste in…

    A few weeks ago, I delivered a Cordova/PhoneGap Workshop at jQuery UK in Oxford. Great conference in a great location! I took the opportunity to revamp the workshop I had been delivering at PhoneGap Day in Portland and Amsterdam, and at LXJS in Lisbon. I thought it could be useful to a larger audience, so I just posted the updated materials for the first part of the workshop (Cordova CLI, Single Page Architecture, Templates, Cordova APIs, Hardware Acceleration, Performance Techniques, etc.) here. In the second part of the workshop, I covered AngularJS and the Ionic Framework. I will post the…

    Before Windows Live Writer was even publically released, I was glad to have been an early beta user/tester of the product.  The team thought early about an extensible model and it has been my content authoring tool ever since.  It has allowed me to use *my* preferred content workflow with my cloud providers/formatters/tracking and other such plug-ins due to this extensibility. One of the first plugins available was one of mine I called Flickr4Writer.  It was pretty popular (as most ‘firsts’ are) and I got a lot of good feedback that changed the functionality and user interface.  Is it…

  • Getting Started with GWT Super Dev Mode

    Sencha Blog
    23 Jul 2014 | 7:56 am
    If you’ve been using GWT in the last few months, you’ve undoubtedly noticed that various browsers have been removing support for classic Dev Mode. This change has been a long time coming. It helps to ensure better performing browsers and plugins, but puts a kink in debugging GWT applications. The future is in Super Dev Mode, so we’ve been testing it regularly, making sure that GXT applications will work correctly in it, and improving the development process. As of GWT 2.6.1, supported by GXT 3.1, Super Dev Mode works in all browsers on all operating systems. The next version…

  • Saving an SVG File from Paper.js

    1 Jul 2014 | 10:19 am
    Recently I have been spending some time playing around with Paper.js, an open source vector graphics scripting framework that runs on top of the HTML5 Canvas, similar to CreateJS. One of the cool features of Paper.js (and the reason I am using it) is that it has support for exporting its content via SVG. Among other things, this allows me to bring anything I create into Illustrator, and gives me the option to do resolution independent prints. In order to export SVG from Paper.js, you use the project.exportSVG() API. Depending on the options you pass in, this will return an SVG Node, or a…
  • Using Jekyll to archive a wordpress based blog

    25 Dec 2013 | 12:55 pm
    I recently completed migrating my blog from Wordpress to Jekyll (complete post on that soon). One of the main reasons for the move is that I didn't want to continue to have to maintain MySQL, Apache, PHP and everything else required by Wordpress. However, before I shut everything down, I wanted to create a static archive of the entire Wordpress blog, incase I find some content in the future that did not export corectly to the Jekyll based blog. There are a number of Wordpress plugins that will create a static version of the site which you can download and archive, but they require that…
  • Simple HTTP Server for local testing

    8 Apr 2012 | 1:11 pm
    I am currently playing around with the HTML5 FileSystem API, and have a need to test my files served via a web server. I could setup a virtual director for my local apache server, but given the number of simple tests and experiments I do, I wanted something easier that required little to no configuration and setup. So, I put together a super simple script that uses python's SimpleHTTPServer class. <!--more--> Here is the script (requires that python is installed and in your path) #!/bin/bash python -m SimpleHTTPServer $1 To use it, just switch the the directory that contains your…

The list of topics includes: Create Custom Objects Use declarative features to create an Application, create Tabs, and optimize Page Layouts Create Apex Classes Use SOQL and DML to query, create, update and delete data Create Triggers Create Visualforce Pages Create Controller Extensions…
  • Running Your Slide Presentations in the Salesforce1 App

    Christophe Coenraets
    8 May 2014 | 10:39 am
    For the last few years, I’ve mostly been using HTML slides instead of Keynote or Powerpoint. I’ve also been doing a lot of Salesforce1 presentations lately, and it occurred to me that I could take my HTML slides to the next level by running them from within the Salesforce1 app. That way I can demonstrate Salesforce1 from within Salesforce1 without constantly switching context. Another and more important benefit is that because the slides are running inside a Salesforce session, they can incorporate “live” Salesforce data, dashboards, etc. To enable this, I created a…

  • Determining Portable Class Library compatibility

    Tim Heuer
    27 May 2014 | 1:02 am
    Recently I embarked on porting the TagLib# library to a Portable Class Library (PCL).  In my efforts I noted some frustration I had of the “convert and compile” flow to find issues.  Well, turns out I didn’t have to do that much pain as pointed out by Daniel in the comments!  The .NET team has released a tool to help out us developers called the API Portability Analyzer (currently in Alpha).  This tool basically looks at any existing .NET assembly and gives you a report to help you see where the APIs used are supported in the various .NET profiles available. The tool is a single…
  • Working with Portable Class Libraries and porting TagLib#

    23 May 2014 | 9:51 pm
    A long while back I had written a quick sample when Silverlight introduced drag-and-drop into the framework.  Then I decided to show dragging MP3 files into a Silverlight app and reading the metadata and album art.  In order to accomplish this I had to read into the ID3 data from a Silverlight library.  I found a few libraries but settled on TagLib# to do the job.  I had to modify it a bit to get it working in Silverlight as the .NET profile wasn’t the same.  Recently a surge of people have been emailing me for the code.  I spent time searching and apparently I didn’t think the…

  • Adding an Extension SDK dependency to your NuGet package

    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…

The theme of the Scala Summit this year is Scala vs. The New Features in Java 8. So there will definitely be some fascinating discussions. I’m also looking forward to working on some IoT projects during the hackathons. Bruce and I have a few pcDuino devices that will be fun to get Scala working on. Hope to see you there!
  • Salesforce Gradle Plugin

    As part of the Salesforce Wear Developer Pack for Android Wear I created a Gradle plugin that fetches and deploys Salesforce code (Apex). Gradle is the default build tool for Android but it can also be used with many other languages. For instance, here is an example build.gradle file for a project that fetches all of the Apex classes and Visualforce pages: buildscript { repositories { mavenLocal() mavenCentral() } dependencies { classpath 'com.jamesward:force-gradle-plugin:0.1' } }   apply plugin: 'force'   repositories {…
  • Create Webhooks on Salesforce.com

    James Ward
    30 Jun 2014 | 10:21 am
    Webhooks are the modern, web-oriented way for servers to receive notifications from other servers. For instance, when an event happens on a server, like Salesforce.com, your own custom application can receive the event via a web request. Salesforce already has a built-in way to handle events called Triggers which run on Salesforce via Apex code. However, you may want to receive these events in your own custom application. In Salesforce it is pretty easy to write the Apex to do this but why not automate that process? I built the Salesforce Webhook Creator to do just that. Here is a short demo:…
  • Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) for Salesforce.com

    James Ward
    23 Jun 2014 | 8:53 am
    By default browsers limit access to cross-origin resources. For instance, if a JavaScript app is loaded from foo.com then it isn’t allowed to access content from bar.com because this would be a significant security hole. Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) is the way to workaround this limitation in modern browsers. Salesforce.com has a great REST api but unfortunately it doesn’t yet have native CORS support (but you can vote for this feature). Having CORS support comes in handy with JavaScript UIs on top of the Salesforce REST APIs. Luckily you can easily workaround this by…

  • Creating an Online/Offline proxy in Sencha Touch

    17 Jul 2014 | 7:56 am
    Guest Blog Post Introduction A common requirement in Sencha Touch is that an application must continue working normally when a device loses its connection to the Internet. Sencha Cmd delivers some great tools that give us everything we need for the app to work offline, such as auto generated App Manifest files, but one of the biggest issues is how to handle your data. There are numerous ways to handle data, and one common technique is to switch proxies between a local storage proxy and an AJAX proxy. In this post, Tom Cooksey of ProWeb Software will show you how you can achieve the same…
  • Creating Custom Layouts in Ext JS and Sencha Touch

    15 Jul 2014 | 7:56 am
    The Layout system is one of the most powerful and unique parts of the Sencha frameworks. Layouts handle the sizing and positioning of every Component in your application, so you don't need to manage those pieces manually. Ext JS and Sencha Touch have many similarities between their Layout classes, and our own Ivan Jouikov recently analyzed them in detail in this Sencha blog post. Having said that, most Ext JS and Sencha Touch developers have probably never looked under the hood of the Layout system. Sencha frameworks deliver the most common application layouts out of the box, so unless your…

The data package is one of the cornerstones of application development: the oft neglected “M” (for Model) in the buzzing world of “MVC” and “MVVM”. These new capabilities can be seen throughout the entire application development process, from declaring your data model, to presenting your data and validating user input, and finally, saving it back to the server.

  • Don’t Use jquery-latest.js

    Dave Methvin
    3 Jul 2014 | 7:38 am
    Earlier this week the jQuery CDN had an issue that made the jquery-latest.js and jquery-latest.min.js files unavailable for a few hours in some geographical areas. (This wasn’t a problem with the CDN itself, but with the repository that provides files for the CDN.) While we always hope to have 100% uptime, this particular outage emphasized the number of production sites following the antipattern of using this file. So let’s be clear: Don’t use jquery-latest.js on a production site. We know that jquery-latest.js is abused because of the CDN statistics showing it’s the…

  • AngularJS - Resolving data services before instantiating the Controller and Template

    30 Jun 2014 | 6:21 am
    I have been working on an Angular application for sometime now and I have started to like this approach to client-side development. It's a different approach when compared to developing applications using Backbone and Require. I was looking at routing in Angular and came across the 'resolve' property which can be used to resolve services before instantiating the Controller and it's corresponding template i.e. the domain models that are required for the View components are resolved first.Look at a scenario where you are using a Search service to get a collection of objects that contain the…

  • Which Layout? Static, Liquid, Adaptive, or Responsive

    Nick Pettit
    17 Jul 2014 | 8:00 am
    (Photo from Flickr user Will Scullin) When discussing a page layout, web designers will often use terms like fixed, static, liquid, adaptive, responsive, and a few others. If you’re a web designer, a web developer, or even a project stakeholder or client, it’s important to understand what these terms mean and when each type of layout should be utilized. In short, each page layout name describes how the layout behaves when the page is viewed at different browser widths. The horizontal width of the browser could change because the website is being viewed on different devices…

    I haven’t looked at the usage stats for PicScribe in a while. It does the couple of things I need it for and I am mostly content with the functionality. But with Material Design I was thinking of giving the app a refresh as well as add some features I had been meaning to as well. Looking at the stats today was interesting though. Looking at my integrated Google Analytics data, it appears that majority of the app usage is happening in China where Google Play doesn’t even exist. I have no idea how they got the app, its free so it doesn’t matter, but still. All the top phones…
  • Android wishlist: A different notification UI for background services

    This post is first in a series around enhancements to the mobile experience I’d like to see going forward. Stay tuned for more Background services are one of my favorite features on Android. As the idea of a smartphone changes from a phone to a true contextual device, background services that keep track of user context and push information to the user at appropriate times are essential. That said, the current visual treatment they get on the device to let a user know that they are running, which hasn’t changed much since the inception of Android, needs to change. The Problem Here…
  • Announcing FreeFlow

    Arpit
    2 Mar 2014 | 8:29 pm
    This week I announced FreeFlow, a UI framework for Android, that I lead the development on at Comcast for the last 6 months or so. The project started after repeated frustrations in building truly unconventional layouts in Android. Most of the times, developers end up hacking the default Layouts in terrible ways trying to get layouts like the designers I work with come up with. Another problem with such layout nesting is that layout animations are next to impossible to get working right. FreeFlow solves these problems by separating the layout logic from the core View containers (ViewGroups).

    Just in case anyone else is ever foolish enough to try writing a World Clock app without realizing how crazy it is, do watch this video: I was foolish enough to try writing one (not using a third web party api) 3 years ago. Its still available on the Play Store (the source is available on Github) and works at least for the few countries I keep track of, though I am sure its buggy for others. Wish I had seen this video 3 years ago

    I have been getting more into Android testing lately, especially for a core library that we use within our team that may be shared across projects and may have different developers modifying it to suit there own needs. Not making sure that every commit doesn’t break the code for someone is a recipe for trouble (and I have been there). To avoid that as much as we can, last week I set up an continuous build environment that can run tests against the core library on every commit. The parts: AWS: There are a bunch of advantages of using AWS, but the biggest advantage is the availability of…

More organized the data would be, more people would be attracted towards you. Lets change your context to development i.e. WPF, Windows Store and Windows Phone applications. Best applications in store are those in which the data is organized really effectively. A few questions come to developer's mind while designing and developing application.

    Anthony Franco
    11 Jul 2014 | 11:28 am
    Okay – I should probably apologize for using such a strong word. But truthfully, that word, coward, captures the viscerally negative feeling I get when someone says the word “innovation”. The word innovative has become like most buzz-words; their overuse convolutes their meaning ad absurdum. Buzzwords are totally ineffectual because clever people develop mental masking tape for them …Read More
