It was nice to have my brand everywhere: During the week, I delivered an updated version of my IBM Social Business Transformation presentation.

    I’ve made a number of updates to the demos.  The tutorial demo has been updated to do server side rendering.  This means that it is able to be used by clients which either don’t support or have turned off JavaScript.  To run: git clone https://github.com/rubys/ruby2js.git cd ruby2js/demo bundle update ruby react-tutorial.rb Visit the URL (typically http://localhost:4567/) and enter a comment.  Visit the same URL in a different tab or a different browser and enter another comment.  Switch back to the original browser/tab.  If you have client side JavaScript disabled, you will need to…
  • DSL for JavaScript

    Sam Ruby
    3 Feb 2015 | 4:50 pm
    W Jeremy Ashkenas: “work towards building a language that is to ES6 as CoffeeScript is to ES5”… close, but—do it for [ES6+HTML+CSS], and you’ll win ;) It occurs to me that there is a shortcut available.  Let a library like React replace [ES6+HTML+CSS].  Then build a DSL for that library. JavaScript isn’t exactly known for its ability to build DSLs.  Ruby, however, is.  And has an excellent parser library.  By transforming the AST, I can convert calendar.js.rb into calendar.js. In the process, I start by replacing JSX with a library which was inspired by Builder, Markaby, and…

HTML Imports in trouble as Mozilla doesn’t want to implement; Custom Elements OK even though Chrome is the only implementation? Overall, Brian mentions four specifications, and crosses off three.  Why not all four? My take is that this talk lumps React in with others based on when it was introduced; but that it is fundamentally different from, say Angular.js as Angular.js is from jQuery.  Compared to the alternatives, react is more…

The back story is that 15 years ago I wrote some open source code in a programming language called Java.  I don’t use that language much any more, but I understand that it remains popular in some circles.  In any case, javadoc style comments encouraged sharing your email address, and my employer discouraged me from doing…

Cleaning the lens mount, replacing the battery and applying the long overdue firmware upgrade showed no noticeable improvement.The problem seems to be with the battery compartment door.

  • Removing thumbnails from JPEG images

    1 Sep 2014 | 2:30 pm
    JPEG images downloaded from a digital camera often contain thumbnails in the EXIF metadata, which Windows 7 appears to use for the thumbnails shown in folders.Unfortunately not every image editor also updates the thumbnails. As a result, changes to images are only visible on the full image, not on the thumbnail preview.That's where the marvelous ExifTool library and command-line application by Phil Harvey come into play. This one-liner removes the thumbnail image and related size information, and sets the file modification timestamp to the capture timestamp:exiftool -if…

    Of all the fearful factors that business owners and logistics managers have to deal with, one of the things they dread the most is idle inventory. As if supply chains aren’t boring enough as it is (or so people think!), the term idle inventory just exudes negativity.
