I'm a Soundcloud user and a while ago I noticed they did something cool with their interface - a "Play" icon when you are playing music.
NetTuts published my latest article this morning, a look at writing extensions for Brackets: Creating Brackets Extensions. Read it and let me know what you think. I love writing extensions for Brackets so I hope this article encourages others.
A few days ago, the greatest API in the entire Internet was released - the Marvel API. Ok, maybe greatest is a strong word, but I love APIs, I love comics, and the combination of the two is nothing less than Galactus-level news. (And by Galactus I mean the giant purple guy, not the amorphous giant cloud from the forgettable Fantastic Four movie.)
This is my third blog entry now on how to modify the default template when creating a new PhoneGap project. Previously you had to find where the default template was installed and modify it there - which also meant that when you updated CLI tools you lost your modifications. In the latest versions of the CLI tooling, specifically for Cordova, you now have a --src option to specify a source folder for your project.
The title says it all - after a long break (holidays, China, general laziness ;) my podcast with Brian Rinaldi is back.
Yesterday I blogged some tips for working with HarpJS. These tips came about from working on my latest project, the conversion of dynamic site into a static one. In this blog post I thought I'd share the experience. I blogged about this before, but the last site was very simple and nearly 15 years old. This time I worked on something a bit more beefy - the ColdFusion Cookbook.
I spent some time today converting an older ColdFusion site to static HTML (I'll talk more about that tomorrow) and I thought I'd share some tips that may help others.
Just a quick note that I'll be speaking next week at Mobile+Web DevCon in San Francisco. This is my third time at this conference and I like it. It is a small conference, but it has a great relaxed, casual feel to it that I don't get at most conferences. I'll be speaking on Wednesday so if you are in town, come check it out.
Yesterday I recorded a video demonstrating how to use Ripple for Cordova/PhoneGap development. I even made it fancy with Premiere Pro CC (with a huge amount of help from Andy Trice). Let me know what you think and I hope this is helpful.
I ran into this today while looking at Chrome's docs for storage APIs. If you enter chrome://settings/cookies into the address bar (sorry, "omnibox" just seems like a 1980s X-Man name) Chrome will give you a report of storage data for every site that has made use of any form of storage within your browser. This report covers cookies (obviously), local storage, WebSQL, IndexedDB, and AppCache.
