Example of Async Linting support in Brackets Sprint 38

04-15-2014 791 views Development, JavaScript Comments

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.

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

04-15-2014 1,533 views Mobile, Development Comments

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 can't make it, it will be posted to YouTube about an hour later.

Debugging Mobile Web/Cordova Apps - A Quick Review

Multi-File Uploads and Multiple Selects (Part 2)

04-14-2014 1,481 views JavaScript, HTML5 4 Comments

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.

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.

Update to my JavaScript Behance API

04-11-2014 1,611 views Design, JavaScript Comments

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 are still a lot of things missing. I'm basically adding functions as people ask for them, but with the number of demos I've built with it I thought it was time to move it over to GitHub. Enjoy.

Thanks to the Salt Lake City UG for allowing me to present to them last night. You can watch a recording of the presentation via the link below. I've also attached a zip of the demo files.

getSafeHTML and ColdFusion 11

04-09-2014 1,669 views ColdFusion 2 Comments

One of the cooler new features in the next version of ColdFusion is getSafeHTML. I had seen this mentioned a few times already but it never really clicked in my brain what it was doing. getSafeHTML makes use of the AntiSamy project. It takes user-generated content and replaces unsafe HTML. What is safe and what isn't? It is totally up to you. The functionality is driven by an XML file (a very complex XML file) that lets you get as granular as you want. Want to support the bold tag but not italics? Fine. Want to support colors for CSS but only some? You can do that. Let's look at a simple example - and one that happens to point out a little issue.

Just a quick FYI to let you know about some upcoming ColdFusion e-seminars. These are online presentations open to the public.

This is not the function you are looking for

04-08-2014 1,425 views ColdFusion 7 Comments

Yesterday I was doing some editing on the CFML Reference wiki when I ran across a function that is - as far as I know - one of the most misused functions in ColdFusion. What function is that? listContains.

Interesting addition to ColdFusion 11 (and an example of it in ColdFusion 10)

04-07-2014 1,858 views ColdFusion Comments

While preparing for a presentation I'm doing on ColdFusion 11 on Wednesday night, I discovered an interesting update to the directoryList function. In ColdFusion 11 you can now pass a function for filtering as opposed to just a list of extensions. (And yes, a list is valid - I'll explain more in a bit.) The example function was a bit messy so I updated it to make it a bit nicer. Here is the example.
