A couple of years ago my wife Jane got a bit bored ( with work – not me – I hope ) and decided to teach herself iOS programming. At the time I was a bit sceptical ( she was not an IT person ) but I am please to say that my scepticism was unfounded.
Jane’s latest app is now out in the iTunes App Store. Its free so take a look and if you get the chance please give it a rating.
It was a whole family affair. She stole ( literally ) my Mac, I provided cups of tea, she did the programming and the kids provided the sound effects for the “pond” – click on the Frog – that’s John – age 8.
Thanks also to the games department at UCLAN who did the graphics as part of their course work.
Being from a LotusScript background i really like being able to see all of the code from my script library in one long searchable block.
I get very frustrated with Java script libraries when I know a keyword I have searched for is in there somewhere but I am forced to navigate though each class within a script library to find it.
If you are using source control you can see all of the script library as a single file within the ODP. This then allows you to search for keywords and backtrack up the text file to see which library the code you want was in.
I use Notepad ++ which is free and excellent. Notepad++ will also reload the ODP file as it is changed in DDE.
The other trick with Java is that once you are back in the editor you can press f2 and then click from a reference to a class through to that class
If anyone has a better way of navigating Java please let me know – it seems so awkward.
We are getting on really well with Source Control using GIT in Domino but there are a couple of niggles that waste a lot of time.
One our standard design patterns uses a page with a computed outline for a horizontal menu as shown below. When you build the project from an ODP the embedded outline is missing – this affects 95% of our apps.
When you look at the DXL or the ODP neither mentions the formula that defines the Embedded Outline – it only records the outcome of the formula at the time the ODP was created. This is in 9.0
Work-around – avoid computed outlines on pages 🙁
Does anyone know who is the “Paul Hannan” of Source Control ?
