Tip: Viewing Network Requests with the Safari Debugger [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 3/27/15 5:00 PM | Development, Mobile
I’m not a heavy Safari user, but I use the heck out of the web tools when testing PhoneGap/Cordova apps. Sometime recently (I believe), the UI changed a bit in terms of the Network request panel and I couldn’t see my requests anymore. I finally figured out the issue and I thought I’d share. To be clear, when I say I figured it out, I mean I found the right post on StackOverflow and all credit goes to user

Using Grunt to Automate MobileFirst/Hybrid Builds [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 3/26/15 2:00 PM | Development, Mobile, MobileFirst
When working with MobileFirst and hybrid mobile applications, any changes to your web assets requires running both a build and deploy to see your changes. The command line makes this easy by letting you combine the calls into one (mfp bd), but while developing, it may be a pain to constantly run this. So for fun, I wrote the following Grunt script.

Ben Forta | 3/25/15 6:00 PM | 3D Printing, Creative Cloud, Photoshop, Adobe
Richard Curtis' blog is a goldmine of Photoshop and Lightroom goodness, and he's recently been covering 3D printing, too. I'm blown away by the depth and scope of his posts, and his ability to keep producing highly informative quality content with such frequency. Add Richard's blog to your reading list.

Reminder – Having a tool doesn’t mean you always use that tool… [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 3/25/15 4:00 PM | Development
Earlier this week Rebecca Murphy wrote an article about what she considers a “baseline” for JavaScript developers: A Baseline for Front-End [JS] Developers: 2015. It’s a good article and I highly recommend reading it, but some of the comments raised an issue that I’ve seen in our community lately that I wanted to address. It is an in

Mechanical Keyboard Follow-up [+]
thecrumb | 3/25/15 12:08 AM
After my previous post about mechanical keyboards I ended up going with the Code Keyboard. At the time they only offered them in clear or green switches but now they also offer brown. What's the difference you ask? The Cherry MX Clear switches are a slightly enhanced version of the MX Brown with a slightly more pronounced operating for

A Guide to Building Static Sites with Jekyll [+]
Remote Synthesis | 3/24/15 10:00 PM
As I’ve posted about recently, I’ve been speaking a lot about comparing static site engines. There are a ton of options out there (389 as of today, according to this site). However, based on my personal experience, I always recommend Jekyll - granted, that’s based on having used 5 of the 389 so far. I alre

Working with IBM MobileFirst and Ionic – Bootstraping [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 3/24/15 10:00 PM | Development, JavaScript, Mobile, Ionic, MobileFirst
Yesterday I described how to make use of the Ionic framework and IBM’s MobileFirst platform. Today I’m going to build on that first post and talk about bootstrapping. Specifically – how can you coordinate the use of your application with the Cordova deviceReady and MobileFirst initialization routines. To give some context, I first talked

Adam Cameron's CFML Blog | 3/24/15 9:57 PM | Blog
G'day:Just for you who choose to follow along this pythonesque flying circus that is my working life... now I am back to being a PHP developer again.The stint back in CFML-land was briefer than I expected.I'm still suffering from complete writer's block / motivation block, so I'd not necessarily expect anything interesting (/at all) from this blog for the time being. As always though... if anything interesting crops up, I'll jot it down. It's just that nothing inter

OS X Yosemite Tip – Maximizing Windows [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 3/24/15 3:00 PM | Misc
For the most part, upgrading to OS X Yosemite didn’t cause any issues for me, but the one change that bugged the heck out of me (and made me question what in the heck Apple was thinking), was switching the action of clicking the green icon in app windows. Previously, this would maximize the window on your screen. Now, it takes you full screen. (And this is where I question Apple. In all my time watching developers, I rarely see them use full screen. Heck, I used it for the first time la

Angular + Require project template [+]
Fusioned with ColdFusion | 3/24/15 2:00 PM | AngularJS, Design Patterns, JavaScript/jQuery, RequireJS
I've been working on an Angular project for good number months. There's a lot that I've learned and I've realized that the code I wrote could have been structured in a better way. I wanted to write this post sometime back, however I thought it would be better to create an application structure first and then post my learnings. I have posted all the code on github here - https://github.com/sagar-ganatra/angular-require-templ

Having trouble with splash screens, Cordova, and Android? [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 3/24/15 2:00 PM | Development, Mobile
Yesterday I struggled to get – what I thought – was a simple thing working in Cordova – adding a splash screen to Android. According to the docs, at minimum, you should be able to do this: <splash src="res/splash.png" /> This worked fine for me in iOS but in Android, jus

More info on Lucee 5 [+]
Adam Cameron's CFML Blog | 3/24/15 8:35 AM | Andrew Dixon, Lucee
G'day:The Lucee Association seems to have jumped on its comms recently, with Andrew working on the Lucee blog, and Micha has also now created a page on the wiki page detailing some stuff on what's coming in Lucee 5.A lot of this stuff is what was being thrown around for Railo 5, which should come as no surprise. But this does mean that back in th
