New IBM Composer Feature - Additional Action Logging [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 12/12/17 10:00 PM
A pretty cool update landed in IBM Composer today, and I want to thank IBM engineer Kerry Chang for letting me know about it. When visualizing compositions, Composer will return information about the output of your actions, but do not provide that level of input for inine functions. Now typically these are very small bits o

Writing a bill calendar with Node and Express [+]
Shane's ramblings | 12/12/17 9:00 PM | Javascript, Mongoose, NodeJS
Everyone has their “go to” application when it comes to learning a new software stack. I believe every programmer out there has written the venerable “Hello World” application at least once in their lifetime. Todo apps were all the rage when Angular came on the scene. Some folks I know like writing blog applications. My app of choice is a bill calendar. It may seem like a

Adding Referrer Protection to OpenWhisk Actions [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 12/11/17 10:00 PM
Today I was thinking about what it would take to add referrer-style protection to an OpenWhisk API. What I mean by that is the ability to say that a particular API can only be called from certain domains. To be clear, this is not secure in any "real" fashion. This Stack Overflow question does a great job of addressing why not: "Does refer

An Example of Form Validation with Vue.js [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 12/8/17 1:00 AM
I was a bit torn about today's blog post. When it comes to form validation, I'm a huge fan of validating via HTML attributes. In fact, I just ran across a great post today on the subject by Dave Rupert, "Happier HTML5 Form Validation". However, I know folks have issues with HTML validation, and it doesn't cover every use case, and finally, I thought it would just be plain

Quick Example of Apache Cordova and Vue.js [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 12/6/17 4:00 PM
Normally when building Cordova apps, I either use no JavaScript framework at all, or I use Angular with Ionic. But as you can tell by my recent posts, I've become infactuated with Vue.js lately. While the Ionic folks are working on making it easy to use Vue instead of Angular, I thought I'd demonstrate a quick example of how simple it is to use Vue with Cordova. I'm not going to worry about UI for this post, but rather show how to wait for the deviceread

Mura Demystified: The JSON API, Getting Friendly with Feeds [+]
Mura CMS Blog | 12/6/17 1:00 AM | How-To, Mura 7, Mura CMS, Mura Demystified
Mura's JSON API provides a robust yet elegantly simple means for collecting, filtering and sorting content - complete with Mura's built-in permissions, pagination, and other familiar options - directly from the source, completely outside of the admin interface or other Mura UI. Grant provides some simple examples and useful resources for exploring and interacting with content feeds via the JSON API.

Building Related Selects with Vue.js [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 12/5/17 4:00 PM
My buddy Nic Raboy has been posting some great "how to do X" style posts on Vue.js lately and it's inspired me to do the same. With that in mind, I decided to work on what I thought would be a simple demo of "related selects" - this is a common UI interface where one drop down drives the content of another. While working on the demos though I ran into some interesting edge cases that

Advent of Code 2017 [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 12/4/17 3:00 PM
I'm a few days late, but this is just a quick reminder that Advent of Code has returned. This is a daily coding challenge where you are tasked to solve certain problems. No particular language is required, and heck, if you want to do it on paper you could give that a shot as well. This is my third year participating and it quickly goes from simple to "woah, how in the heck do I solve that?!?" Last year I didn't complete the entire set of puzzle

Handling Global Keyboard Shortcuts Using Priority And Terminality In Angular 5.0.5 [+]
Kinky Solutions | 12/4/17 1:00 PM | Javascript / DHTML
Ben Nadel shares his approach for implementing keyboard shortcuts in Angular 5.0.5, using a KeyboardShortcuts service that requires explicit priorities and event-propagation rules. This explicit configuration brings clarity and a holistic view to global key-events, promoting them to a first-class concept within the application architecture....

Connecting AngularJS and ColdFusion [+]
South of Shasta | 12/4/17 5:00 AM | ColdFusion, JavaScript, AngularJS
(This presentation can be done as a 1-day hands-on workshop, as a regular 1-hour session, or as a more involved 2-hour deep dive.) AngularJS is an extremely popular JavaScript framework for building client-side applications.  Angular contains lots of great features and can be used to build both web and mobile applications.  Then comes the server part. How do we send data from the Angular app to a server in the cloud? That’s were our ColdFusion code comes into play.&nbs

I Love That TypeScript Doesn't Allow Me To Make Incorrect Assumptions About Object Usage [+]
Kinky Solutions | 11/30/17 6:00 PM | Javascript / DHTML
Ben Nadel demonstrates one of the TypeScript features that he loves the most: the TypeScript compiler won't allow him to make poor assumptions about "duck typing" and object usage. Instead, he is forced - by the compiler - to write clean, self-documenting, unsurprising code....

Last Update, Honest, to My Vue.js INeedIt Demo [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 11/29/17 2:00 AM
Ok, I know I said my last post on my Vue.js INeedIt app was the last post, but I had an idea for just one more tweak and couldn't resist taking a stab at it. It didn't quite work out the way I wanted it too, but it was an interesting iteration to the app and I think now I can put it down and move on to the next thing I want to build. For this final version of the app, I decided to apply
