IndexedDB on iOS 8 - Broken Bad

Let me begin by saying that credit for this find goes to @jonnyknowsbest on Twitter and his SO post here: Primary Key issue on iOS8 implementation of IndexedDb. I did my research into this issue early this morning and I hope that I, and jonny, are both wrong. I'd love to be wrong about this. Unfortunately, I don't think that is the case. So, as you know, iOS 8 finally brought IndexedDB to Mobile Safari. I may be biased, but I find features like this far more useful than CSS updates. Not to say that I don't appreciate them, but (translate)

Browser as a platform for your PhoneGap/Cordova apps

This is a pretty exciting change. If you've recently updated to the latest version of Cordova, you will notice that a new platform exists: browser. What exactly does this mean? It means the browser is now (well, becoming) a viable way to test your PhoneGap/Cordova applications. For a long time now I've done a lot of my development in the browser. Most of the time I'm not concerned about some random Cordova feature, instead I'm more concerned about something else. So I'll skip, or mock, a Cordova feature and focus on the important stuff. But eventually I hit that point (translate)

iFrame to parent communication across domains :: #JS #iFrame

Rating: (Total Clicks 10)

iFramed content may be less than ideal to use, but in many cases it provides a way to easily bring in 3rd party content.  If there is communication that is necessary between the content inside the iFrame and the parent all hope is not lost. You should use a postMessage event to talk from the content […] (translate)

Tip: Using Ionic - without Ionic

Pardon the cryptic title. Earlier this morning I was working on a demo (the result of which is documented here) that I knew was going to be rather simple. Therefore I decided to skip using Ionic since AngularJS would have been overkill for what I was producing. I was ok with that, but what I really didn't like was losing live reload and logging in my terminal. Turns out there is a rather obvious way to get that. When you create an Ionic application, you have the option of specifying a folder to use for your source directory. So all (translate)

Simple photo filters with VintageJS and Cordova

A quick demo today of something I ran into via StackOverflow. VintageJS is a JavaScript library that adds simple camera fitlers, like sepia and vignettes, to pictures. As long as your browser supports canvas, you can make use of the library rather easily. Here is one example, stolen from their docs. var img = document.getElementById('yourImage'); var options = { onError: function() { alert('ERROR'); } }; var effect = { vignette: 0.6, sepia: true }; new VintageJS(img, options, effect); The library also integrates well with AngularJS, which is a plus for me as I'm trying to do most everything in Cordova (translate)

iOS 8 was just released – and Cordova supports it fully, but it is still using the existing UIWebView iOS browser component (more on the new iOS 8 WKWebView later). The main issues were in the core plugins, which have been updated but the released versions in the Cordova Plugin Registry have not. We are […] (translate)

Video: Building Hybrid Applications with Ionic

How cool is NCDevCon? The presentation I finished 10 minutes ago is online. Now. There may be some audio issues in the middle (had some feedback) so you may want to switch to headphones (let me know), but overall, check it out and let me know. I've made no secret of my love for Ionic and I hope this helps people get acquainted with it. Video Link p.s. I didn't include my slide deck and example apps, but if folks would like them let me know and I'll post a copy. (translate)
