Readers of my blog know I am a huge fan of Node-RED so now you can learn about it in the upcoming tech talk by IBM developerWorks. I most recently used Node-RED in an Eclipse application where I provide an automatic translation service for a tool called PET.

Node-RED is a tool for wiring together the Internet of Things in new and interesting ways, including hardware devices, APIs, and online services. Node-RED makes it easy to wire together real-world events, add in some intelligence, and access simple nodes to integrate them with existing messaging systems and social platforms such as Twitter, MongoDB, and Redis to create apps that can react to the world around them..

If you have been following my blog and more specifically my Twitter account in the past week you probably noticed an awful lot of re-tweets in the past week. Well, if you just happen to have missed my original video where I created a simple Node-RED application to automatically retweet and promote “bluemix” on Twitter feel free to get some context here and watch the video.
This is the final flow after some debugging and watching the different retweets happening:
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.
Sitepen – Development, support, and training from the makers of Dojo.
I figured I would share this because I found so many inconsistent hits on the internet searching for a solution. I have this dialog that I pop up and want to set the values and then retrieve the values once OK is hit using JQuery.
The HTML is pretty straight forward:
The code to set the value from my model looks like this:
var $radios = $('input:radio[name=transition]');
$radios.filter('[value=' + model.options.transition +']').attr('checked', true);
With the new Aurora store front comes many new and exciting features. One feature I really like is the way the store uses Ajax throughout the user interface. The WebSphere Commerce Ajax Framework is based on Dojo (check out the Dojo Ajax documentation here) and it does a great job in easing the use of Dojo in your store front. You can read more about the framework here in the InfoCenter.
But lets dive on the implementation just a little.
The new Dojo 1.6 toolkit has just been released! Check out the what’s new page on the Dojotoolkit site. I think the best thing in this release is the refactoring of all of the dojo and dijit classes to support CommonJS Modules/AsynchronousDefinition (AMD). It also has a bunch of other really nice things like dojo.replaceClass and dojo._getMarginSize for performance gains in Internet Explorer 6 and 7. Those two features will be very important for an optimized runtime and download speeds.
All modules in dojo and dijit have been converted to comply with the CommonJS Modules/AsynchronousDefinition (AMD) proposal. This is a preparatory step on the way to full AMD support in version 1.7 and beyond. Unless you are an early adopter of using dojo with an AMD loader, these changes should be transparent to you. — link
