Do you ever need to format some encrypted, auto-generated XML, HTML, or JSON? Well, I do this a lot to debug compressed JSON, HTML, and XML files and I found this great site that not only does formatting for some basic file types but also does a heck of a lot more. Some great things FreeFormatter.com does:
I got my first Mac over the summer and have been playing around writing applications for iPhone and iPad. Being very new to the Mac I am constantly using Google to find tips, tricks, and “how to” articles. And of course when I find something very cool and easy to do I like to share it. This is my first quick tip for developing embedded HTML applications in an iOS device. Without a debugger you are dead in the water!
I am interested to hear if this the best way to debug such applications, any feedback is welcome.
I was poking around the internet and thanks to Google I found very quickly this Image Map Tool site that lets you create image maps for your graphics. I quickly created a simple graphic, uploaded it to the tool and create maps for different tag categories on my site. I then copied and pasted the HTML into my blog post and viola, works like a charm!
Ok, now back to reality. And yes, I watched the extended version of Lord Of the Rings tonight.
I have just finished the “Ultimate Attachment Viewer” implementation for OpenNTF. Since the default browser on Windows in Lotus Notes uses Internet Explorer I had to rely on Dojo in many areas for the different views. I will be posting the updated viewer on OpenNTF within the next week or so, so stay tuned. The primary additions are the new Dojo toolbar and the three view modes: Film Strip, Slide Show and Thumbnails.
For the thumbnail view I use basic CSS to accomplish this. The two classes, border and thumb, give the experience of them being “thumbnails” and as the mouse moves over the div block it “selects” it with a new background color using the hover tag.
I can’t tell you how nice the custom keyboard on the iPhone is for sites that are using type=”number”, type=”email” and type=”url” on their forms. You can check out this article I found that explains all of the different keyboards the iPhone supports. I also found another good article that hits on a few more nice to knows in the mobile web space.
Very interesting article over at the InfoWorld site. It has a lot of valid points and I think if something so standard as “HTML” will provide this stuff then it makes me understand why Microsoft is so reluctant to support HTML 5.
“HTML 5, a groundbreaking upgrade to the prominent Web presentation specification, could become a game-changer in Web application development, one that might even make obsolete such plug-in-based rich Internet application (RIA) technologies as Adobe Flash, Microsoft Silverlight, and Sun JavaFX.” – link
