  • Automated GitHub pull-request status updates with Node-RED

    nick
    18 Apr 2014 | 4:22 pm
    Having recently added a Travis build for the Node-RED repository, we get a nice green, or sometimes nasty red, merge button on pull-requests, along with a comment from Travis thanks to GitHub’s Commit Status API. From a process point of view, the other thing we require before merging a pull-request is to ensure the submitter has completed a Contributor License Agreement, or CLA. This has been a manual check against a list we maintain. But with GitHub’s recent addition of the Combined Status api I decided we ought to automate this check. And of course, why not implement it in a…
  • Changing Ghost permalinks without breaking everything

    26 Jan 2014 | 10:09 am
    I’m a big fan of the Ghost blogging platform. Having heard Hannah Wolfe talk about it a couple of times, I was keen to try it out. In fact I purposefully held off setting up a blog for Node-RED until Ghost was available. It was painless to set up and get running on my Web Faction hosted server – even though at that point Web Faction hadn’t created their one-click installer for it. Ghost released their second stable version a couple weeks ago, which added, amongst many other new features, the ability for a post’s url to contain its date. This was a feature I…
  • Wiring the Internet of Things – ThingMonk talk

    nick
    5 Dec 2013 | 1:06 pm
    I spoke this week at the ThingMonk conference. Unlike other talks I’ve given, I actually wrote this one down, rather than my normal approach of throwing some slides together at the last minute. That has the added benefit of giving me a coherent(ish) written version I can post here. Below is the talk as I roughly planned it, albeit certainly not a word-for-word record of what I actually said. Andy Stanford-Clark, inventor of MQTT, sat here with us today, lives on the Isle of Wight, the south coast of the Isle of Wight. The nature of his job means he has to head to London for meetings…
  • Node-RED – a visual tool for wiring the Internet of Things

    nick
    26 Sep 2013 | 2:52 am
    Node-RED is the visual tool for wiring the Internet of Things that I have been working on through the year. What started as an educational exercise to get to grips with technologies such as Node.js and d3, soon turned into a tool that provided real value in client engagements. One of our goals all along was to open-source the tool; to build a community of users and contributors. Following a whirlwind pass through the appropriate internal process, we got all the approvals we needed at the start of September and have released Node-RED as an Apache v2 licensed open source project on github. You…

    One of the parts of the Internet of Things that I feel often gets overlooked are the Things. There seems to be a new IoT gateway, hardware platform or consortium to “standardise” every week. These are all honourable activities to move things either forward, or in the case of standardisation consortium, in circles. But what about the Things? This is the part of IoT that appeals to me the most. Crafting a Thing that will appeal to a wide audience takes so much more that a bit of hardware and software. It needs designing to be an object that people willingly accept into their homes.

  • Wunderbar JQuery filter

    Sam Ruby
    26 Jan 2014 | 9:55 am
    W I got a suggestion to look into React.js, a JavaScript library which is focused on the problemspace that Angular.js’s directive addresses. One of the ways React.js facilitates the creation of web components is via JSX which mixes “XML” with JavaScript.  The “XML” is “desugared” into React.DOM calls. Based on this idea, I created a Wunderbar jquery filter to “desugar” Wunderbar calls into JQuery calls.  The tests show some of the conversions.  I also updated my Bootstrap modal dialog directive to make use of this: before => after.
  • Ruby2js += underscore.js

    Sam Ruby
    23 Jan 2014 | 6:52 am
    When compared to Ruby, JavaScript doesn’t have as much functional support built in.  Underscore.js fills that gap for many.  Underscore.js, in turn, was inspired by Ruby’s Enumerable module.  A underscore filter (tests) completes the mapping. In many cases, the resulting JavaScript is formed by applying a number of filter rules.  For example, starting with: a.flatten!() This is first expanded to use Array.prototype.slice to ensure the update happens in place: a.splice(0, a.length, *a.flatten()) Next, the method call is rewritten to use the underscore flatten function: a.splice(0,…

    I’m recently back from a short tour of Italian cities — Milan, Turin, Rome and Florence — where I met with entrepreneurs, company leaders, academics, and government officials on the topic of “smart cities”. The term “smart city” has received some cogent criticism of late. (See Greenfield and Townsend.) It’s a marketing buzzword that’s become a policymaker catchphrase and, at least in the United States, is met with whatever just precedes skepticism. But elsewhere in the world, the phrase is just catching on. The overwhelming sense I got in…

    30 Dec 2013 | 11:02 am
    The city is the most complex machine ever invented. Running optimally the city generates opportunity and provides a platform for interaction, ideas, and improvement. As a concept the city has been iterated-upon, smashed and burnt to the ground, rebuilt, deliberately-designed, haphazardly-organized, and generally resilient for many millennia. But the city is still a human invention and every single one is flawed, many horribly so. Which makes cities the ultimate problem set. For the engineering-minded and entrepreneurial the challenge of cities has enticed since the first itinerant merchants…

SmartCloud Notes even allows you customisation albeit within clear limits. So before you upload your extension forms you need to plan well.
