Node.js is now HUGE and a lot of devs are jumping to it for their solutions. Why The Hell Would I Use Node.js? A Case-by-Case Tutorial is a really good primer on node.js and what you should think about when considering it as part of your solution.
I wanted to browse to a site hosted locally on my laptop. It seems its a bit more complex than what I remember with IIS 6 / 7 .
This blog post explained it all.
As well as the book (See prev post), my next bit of good news dropped into my inbox from WordPress just before New Year. Even though I’ve ignored my blog (something I only really started to keep as a reference for me really), I was amazed to read the stats have grown since last year. If they are true then I am shocked :O One of my resolutions is to give my blog some more attention. Thanks to everyone who has visited. I am thinking about how to make it better so please get in touch if you have any suggestions on how I can help people with Sencha Touch or anything else you may be reading on here. Happy New Year!
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 22,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 8 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
Sometimes data changes and your application has to accommodate this. Maybe you have fields that are user defined for example. I have put together some code that would enable this on Sencha Touch, allowing for the fields in a model to be defined dynamically.
I have used fiddle.sencha.com for the first time to show this example. It can be found here.
The fiddle uses the same list and model and store but handles entirely different data. By changing three things (dynamicItemTpl, data array for the dynamicStore, and data array in the fieldsStore) you can either show people or film titles in the list. This is a very basic example, but you could feed all three into Sencha Touch to create your fields on the fly.
This is a quick post but hopefully the example is self explanatory. As always, any comments or questions are welcome.
