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.
We’re at an inflection point in the practice of constructing software. Our
tools are good, our server developers are happy, but when it comes to building
client-side software, we really don’t know where we’re going or how to get
While I agree with much of this post, I really don’t think the conclusion
is as bad as Tim portrays things. I agree that there are good server side
frameworks, and doing things like MVC is the way to go.
I just happen to believe that this is true on the client too – including MVC.
Not perfect, perhaps, but more than workable. And full disclosure, I’m firmly
side of the fence.
Leonard Richardson: Hey, folks, I got some pretty exciting news. Now that RESTful Web APIs has come out, there’s really no reason to buy 2007’s RESTful Web Services. So Sam Ruby and I and O’Reilly have gotten together and started giving the old book away. You can get a PDF from the RESTful Web APIs website or from my now-ancient RESTful Web Services site.

I finally debugged why my cable service was so poor. Long story short, an inexplicable 7dB drop in the incoming line, a bad arrangement of splitters, and another unexplained 7dB drop someplace in the house; , which leads to the following question:

Nearly six years ago, I set up a personal Jabber server using ejabberd. This setup survived the server migration to Ubuntu 8.04 and 10.04. This past weekend, I attempted to migrate that to a server running 12.04 and all I could get out of it was an erlang crash dump.
A quick scan for successors turned up prosody. Configuration was as simple as adding a VirtualHost and setting allow_registration to true.
Armed with my new Mac Mini, I set off to to repeat my testing of various versions of Rails and Ruby. Whereas I have been using, and happy with, RVM on Ubuntu for dealing with Ruby versions; I decided to try rbenv/ruby-build. What I started with was a new machine, a full installation of XCode, the Command Line utilities, and Homebrew.
Five years ago today, I bought a mac mini to do book development. On Wednesday, I bought a new mac mini simply because I’m told that Mountain Lion won’t install on a vintage 2008 mac mini, and because my readers have hadproblems on Mac OS X 10.8.
Overall, I have continued to be unimpressed, and can’t help but wonder why my open source friends seem attracted to this system.
