See all the fun things that we do at Grio in addition to work.
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.
Animations are one of the cornerstones of the iOS platform. Animations can add polish and visual interest to any application.
iOS comes with many default animations and effects. An animation between two views is referred to as a transition.
On a recent project, we needed to create an animation of a card to make it appear spinning. Creating this effect from scratch would involve a fair amount of code, but leveraging transitions made it easy.
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.
On larger Git projects, I often see the following scenario play out after someone’s done some work and is ready to push it to the remote repo:
...making and committing changes to "develop" branch...
$ git pull
$ git push
Counting objects: 5, done.
Delta compression using up to 8 threads.
Compressing objects: 100% (3/3), done.
Writing objects: 100% (3/3), 363 bytes, done.
Total 3 (delta 0), reused 0 (delta 0)
e8c1210..1a0c4d4 develop -> develop
! [rejected] new_feature -> new_feature (non-fast-forward)
error: failed to push some refs to 'firstname.lastname@example.org:test-repo/test_repo.git'
To prevent you from losing history, non-fast-forward updates were rejected
Merge the remote changes (e.g. 'git pull') before pushing again. See the
'Note about fast-forwards' section of 'git push --help' for details.
Today Grio launched a new website, a new blog, and a free product.
I’m going to tell you about the product, which is called Poll.li (see http://poll.li).
Simply put, Poll.li is a way of voting on content using emoticons. You can think of it as a like button with more variety. Similar to like, Poll.li can be used as a voting mechanism for web users.
