Rating: (Total Clicks 5)

Thank you to everyone who attended (not sure how many - 20+ I think?) my Google Hangout presentation today. I think I'm getting used to the platform but as always, if anyone has any tips for how I could do these better, I'll gladly listen to your advice. You can watch the recording below. I'm not attaching the slide deck as there aren't any 'real' demo files for you to play with, but if anyone really wants it, I will. (translate)

This newsletter is curated by two friends of mine - Brian Rinaldi and Holly Schinsky. Check it out. To get an idea of what they are covering, here is the latest issue, with a story by yours truly.

Article: HTML out of the Browser

Very happy to announce the first publication of an article of mine on the Mozilla Hacks blog. This article is a bit of a departure for me. Less techy and more touchy feelie. Broadly, the article is a look at how HTML (well, web standards in general) are branching out of the browser. Probably some (or most) of this is known to my readers, but I felt like a look at this phenomenon was worthwhile. I hope you enjoy it as well. HTML out of the Browser (translate)

It has been a while, but next week (Wednesday, April 23rd) at 12PM CST, Holly Schinsky and myself will be hosting an open Q and A session for PhoneGap and Cordova. We've run these before and they are pretty successful. There will not be any presentation, but we will take your questions and try to answer them as well as we can. These sessions tend to bring up great discussions and are a good chance to see what other people are struggling with as well. We won't make a recording, but we will share the text of the questions and (translate)

Example of Async Linting support in Brackets Sprint 38

One of the more cooler updates to Brackets recently was the linting API. This came out back in October and I wrote up a review of the API for the Brackets blog. It basically took 90% of the boiler plate code for linters and made it them a heck of a lot simpler. One thing that wasn't possible with the linter (or not easy at least) was handling linters that needed to do something asynchronously. One of my extensions, W3CValidation, made use of a remote API to perform validation on HTML. (I've also got a wrapper for another HTML validator: (translate)

Google Hangout - Debugging Mobile Web/Cordova Apps - A Quick Review

This Friday at 1PM CST, I'll be hosting an online Google Hangout about debugging mobile web/Cordova applications. This is a repeat of what I did at this years FluentConf, so if you couldn't make it, this is your chance. Note that I've set the meeting length to 1.5 hours. It will be much shorter than that. The original presentation was 30 minutes and I anticipate it taking about the same. I'm not sure what Google Hangouts will do if I go past the end of a meeting so I wanted to ensure we didn't get cut off. For folks who (translate)

Multi-File Uploads and Multiple Selects (Part 2)

A while back I wrote a simple example of using JavaScript to add file previews for a multi-file upload HTML control. You can find that entry here: Adding a file display list to a multi-file upload HTML control. I followed it up with another example (Multi-File Uploads and Multiple Selects) that demonstrated adding support for multiple selections. This weekend a reader asked for a way to remove files from the list before uploading. Here is an example of that. First - I had to figure out how users would remove files. I could have added a button to each image (translate)

Thank you to everyone (all 229 of you) who responded to my PhoneGap/Cordova survey. The survey asked what version of PhoneGap or Cordova you used, how quickly you upgrade, and asked what problems you had (in general) with PhoneGap and Cordova. I've included an Excel sheet of all the results below. Let's look at the numerical results first. First up - what version of Cordova are you using. I expected to see a set of folks still on 2.9.X as the 3.X change was big, and there does seem to be a set of folks not upgrading, but they are (translate)

Update to my JavaScript Behance API

After "speaking" with a reader yesterday about my Behance JavaScript API, I've decided to go ahead and promote it to a proper GitHub repository. You can now find the code here: https://github.com/cfjedimaster/BehanceAPI. I also updated the API to support getProject. There is still a lot of things missing. I'm basically adding functions as people ask for it, but with the number of demos I've built with it I thought it was time to move it over to GitHub. Enjoy. (translate)
