Appcelerator Tip: How to recover a GIT Reset in Titanium Studio
Fri, May 22nd 2015 2:40p   John Jardin
This post is an example of how a GIT reset in Appcelerator’s Titanium Studio almost cost me 6 hours worth of work and how I managed to recover what I lost. My Working Environment Apple OSX 10 Titanium Studio eGit and Mylyn for Bitbucket Let me add some context Once upon a time, about a year ago, I spent the most part of my day working on a mobile app, when a critical issue arose that forced me to switch my project’s current source control branch (using eGit Source Control), to its

XPages Tip: Filter your design elements for quicker navigation
Fri, May 15th 2015 5:47a   John Jardin
This is a quick tip on how to filter your design elements in Domino Designer to help quickly find what you’re looking for. I have to laugh at myself sometimes. 80% into one of my recent XPages Projects, I found myself completely frustrated, trying to pinpoint 1 of many custom control designs in Domino Designer. I almost fell off my chair when I realised that the solution was staring me in the face the entire time. In Domino Designer, irrelevant of if you’re viewing XPages design elem

Java XSnippet Published: Translate an ArrayList to a Vector
Thu, May 14th 2015 1:04a   John Jardin
Here is a Java XSnippet I published the other day on how to manually convert an ArrayList Object to a Vector Object. UPDATE Thanks to “Martin Rolph” and “Jesse Gallagher” for providing a much simpler method of getting the same result without having to use my XSnippet. I’ve decided to keep my XSnippet published as I do feel it will add value as a reference point.

Appcelerator workaround for ACS Publish “Request is not recognised” error
Tue, Mar 31st 2015 4:05a   John Jardin
This is a workaround when getting a ‘Request is not recognised” Error when trying to publish a Node.ACS App to the Appcelerator Cloud. The problem seems to be with the latest version of Node.ACS (In my case version 1.0.23) not compatible with the public Appcelerator Cloud platform. As per this post, it’s recommended to downgrade to version 1.0.21. This worked for me. To downgrade your version of Node.ACS, do the following: Open Terminal Enter the following command: “sudo

XPages Best Practice: Don’t add ids to controls if they are not required
Mon, Mar 9th 2015 6:15a   John Jardin
This is a quick best practice tip and what will most likely become an involved discussion around ids for XPages controls. I had to think carefully before posting this, but decided to do so as I know it would prove beneficial to the online community either way. One of the recent items I’ve added to my “best practices” list, is to not use ids for XPages controls that do not require it. A great example of this are label controls. 99.9% of the time, I require no programmatic handl

IBM Domino Designer Tip: Change measurement for notes-based designs
Wed, Feb 11th 2015 9:47a   John Jardin
This is a quick tip for those who want to change the unit of measure in IBM Domino Designer from inches to centimeters. Inches are a default for IBM Domino Designer when setting up table designs and the like in Notes, but I prefer to use centimeters. To modify the measurement, do the following: Open Domino Designer Click on “FilePreferences” Select “Regional Settings” Select which Unit of Measurement you want to use Click on “Ok” Restart Domino Designer

Webstorm Tip: Use Key Promoter to help you find Keyboard shortcuts
Thu, Oct 9th 2014 4:22a   John Jardin
For me, there are too many keyboard shortcuts to memorise in Webstorm IDE? Thanks to a nifty plugin, these shortcuts can be learnt on the fly. Overview What Key Promoter does is monitor your mouse clicks on Menus and Toolbars inside Webstorm. If a shortcut exists for where you mouse-clicked, Key Promoter will show you the Keyboard Shortcut command that you can use for that same action. Firstly, where to find references to Keyboard Shortcuts Note: The below instructions are for Mac, but Windows

This is a quick tip on how to get Ti.Map working again on your iOS7 builds after upgrading Titanium to SDK 3.4.0. For the sake of those who just want to know how to fix the problem and not why it occurred, I will commence this post with the fix and then after that explain what I assumed happened. How to fix the issue In Finder, navigate to “Library > Application Support > Titanium > modules > iphone > ti.map“ Starting with the latest version of Ti.Map, open the releva

Appcelerator Tip: Switch between iOS SDKs for mobile app development
Wed, Oct 1st 2014 9:37a   John Jardin
Thanks to Apple forcing my hand by auto installing Xcode 6, I had to quickly manage multiple versions of Xcode on my mac for Appcelerator mobile development. Why multiple versions? Xcode 6 has the iOS 8 SDK and Simulator by default. For some reason, I couldn’t get it to include the iOS7 SDK, which is what I require for my current development projects. This meant that I needed Xcode 5 back on my machine. I was quite nervous to delete Xcode 6 and replace it with Xcode 5 again, so I decided t

Bluemix iOS Push Notifications Tutorial: Part 2 – Minimum Requirements
Mon, Aug 11th 2014 11:55a   John Jardin
In this post, I’m going to quickly highlight a few requirements before we officially get going with the Bluemix iOS Push Notification Tutorial Series. 1. Mac OSX and Xcode For those out there new to iOS Development, you cannot test and deploy iOS Applications to devices unless you do it via an Apple Operating System. While you can follow this tutorial using Mountain Lion (OSX 10.8), I’ll be using and recommend Mavericks (OSX 10.9). Then, you will need to download Xcode. Xcode is App

IBM Bluemix iOS Push Notifications Tutorial: Part 1 – Overview
Sun, Aug 3rd 2014 1:49p   John Jardin
This is a short video series that I’m planning for the very near future, on how to get the Bluemix Quickstart Push Sample Project running on your Apple devices. Purpose of this Tutorial While the Bluemix team do well to make these sample projects as easy to implement as possible and provide the supporting documentation and instructions, this process is quite daunting from my experience. My goal is to take you through the entire process from having very little already set up, to running the

Thu, Jun 19th 2014 8:41a   John Jardin
In the following Node.js Tutorial provided on the IBM Bluemix Cloud environment, you get asked to log in to Bluemix via cf (Cloud Foundry Command Line Interface) using the following command: cf login -a https://api.mybluemix.net -o -s For some reason, I kept getting the following error: It seems the Endpoint URL changed, but even then, the above command didn’t work after using the new Endpoint URL. After some troubleshooting I finally managed to log in by doing the following: In Termi

TIP: Create global batch files for use in Terminal
Thu, Jun 12th 2014 7:44a   John Jardin
I’m slowly but surely becoming a huge fan of running my development workflows through Terminal on my Mac, especially in the case of mobile development using Appcelerator Titanium. This is a quick tip to show you how to group terminal commands into batch files and have these batch files accessible anywhere when working in Terminal. NOTE I haven’t moved to Mavericks as yet, so my example below applies to Mountain Lion, but should also apply to Mavericks In my example below, my batch f

I wanted to publish one of my mobile apps to the Apple App Store via Titanium Studio. The Archive was successfully created by Titanium and launched in XCode, but when I tried to distribute my mobile app to the App Store using the Application Loader, I got stuck on the following screen: After waiting about 30 minutes, I cancelled the upload and started Googling for solutions.

Possible fix for IDFA Warning when uploading to App Store
Fri, Jun 6th 2014 6:45a   John Jardin
Even though I’m not using any Advertising in my mobile app, I receive an IDFA warning from XCode  before submitting my app to the App Store. Thanks to this Article on the Appcelerator Developer Forum,  I managed to fix the problem. How Did I fix it? Because I’m using the following Facebook Module (version 3.1.1) in my mobile app, the module makes use of the AdSupport Framework, which resulted in my app making use of IDFA. To fix this, I downloaded and installed version 3.1.2 of th

Appcelerator Tutorial: Install Modules globally for Titanium Studio
Tue, Jun 3rd 2014 10:39a   John Jardin
One of the great features of Appcelerator Titanium is how you can extend its capability by installing Mobile Modules. Examples of some of these modules are: Ti.Paint (A module that allows you to draw on a canvas within your mobile app…e.g. a user adding a signature) Barcode Scanner (Barcode scanning for your mobile application) A great place to find many of these modules is the Appcelerator Marketplace. You can also find many other modules on Github as well. The best news is that it̵

Tue, May 27th 2014 12:04p   John Jardin
I’m going through a node.js tutorial for BlueMix and got stuck when trying to push some changes to the BlueMix Git Repository via Terminal.
