An example of Cordova's Camera PopoverOptions

Jul 23, 2014 3:22 PM
Rating: (Total Clicks 2)

One of the interesting features in Cordova's Camera API is something called popoverOptions. While the docs do explain what this feature does, it may not be entirely clear how it works so I whipped up a quick example, with screen shots, to demonstrate what it does. First off - this feature is only for iOS (and the iPad at that) and only for existing pictures, it is not something you can use when having the user take new pictures. So right away you can see this is something that will have limited usage. But what exactly does it do? The (translate)

“Red-Green-Refactor” is a familiar slogan from test-driven development (TDD), describing a popular approach to writing software. It’s been both popular and controversial since the 2000′s (see the recent heated discussions between David Hansson, Bob Martin, and others). I find that … (translate)

Learning MongoDB // The CRUD

The other big takeaway was that working with mongo's document structure is much more simpler to what RDBMS is. While was I working in mongoshell where I was using JavaScirpt to write code and later when i moved over to Java classes it was fairly simple. It was all about knowing 3 classes (if not 2) and you are done. Working with Maps (or Dictionaries) is pretty simple and using that knowledge in any language cant really be difficult. I was able to go back and learn JavaSciprt all over again and code a logic pretty quick. (translate)

a) Pretty quick to get going off the ground. I'd actually use this one instead of a mysql if i am trying a few things and need to use quick-start backend. (where in production - i don't know yet) b) If you are taking this course be mindful of not making judgements on the technology or how you'd want to use it especially model your schemas (or shall I say documents). Wait for the now or go and read more. (translate)
