Here I am sharing a little tidbit about HTML5 video for anyone that needs a refresher. If one needs to seek a video to a specific time, one can do something like this:
AngularJS is a young framework, still so downy-soft that much of the advice you’ll find on support forums refers to an earlier and almost completely incompatible minor version.
So long as you don’t hit a blind spot in the documentation or the community support, it’s a great framework for rapid development, but as soon as you try to do something that isn’t public knowledge, you’ll be scratching your head for hours.
What is Capistrano?
Capistrano is an open source tool mainly used to deploy web applications from source code management (SCM) to one or more servers. The aim of this guide is showing how to easily deploy your app to amazon EC2 using Capistrano. We can leverage its multi-stage extension to provide a different deployment strategy in different scenarios.
Flipboard, iPad app of the year in 2010.
Sporting a very intuitive interface, flipboard is still an inspiration for designing applications.
A few months ago, we were asked to create a showcase iOS web app. Among the requested features, was to give it a flipboard effect.
One of the most raging debates within the web developer community is LAMP vs. Ruby on Rails (RoR), with countless posts all over the Internet that debate the merits of one versus the other… but this blog entry isn’t going to be one of them. You see, I’m new to RoR and hesitate to call myself an LAMP expert. So I’ll just discuss my own experience going from working on PHP-based sites to working on RoR-based sites.
In the end, it’s probably Steve Jobs’ fault.
Back in April 2010, when Jobs explained why the iEmpire line wouldn’t be supporting Flash, a subset of the developer community was anticipating HTML5 as giddily as a Twilight sequel, but the majority were only marginally aware of its existence. The first preview version of IE9 had just been released. Firefox had advanced support for many HTML5 elements, but only those early-adopting developers were really paying attention.
Web mapping services are become more popular as more applications are required to display a considerable amount of data on a map. Applications use a map view most of the time to show single points but clusters of data are becoming more popular.
Before moving forward with any of the web mapping services, it is better to understand what the application really needs from the map provider. In this case our system needs just two features:
· Clustering data
· Showing a single marker on the map
In addition to outputting lots of useful information, the Rails logger can be a useful debugging tool. But debugging with the log file can become frustrating as it will be cluttered with default content. The solution to this problem is to create a custom logger and log file for such output.
The easiest way to do this is to create a global log function, enable it in your development environment, and make sure that calls to it don’t do anything in other environments.
