I can’t say it any better than Jesse, Tom, Nathan, or Tim. A site (no link, they don’t deserve it) is aggregating data without attribution. Which is really not cool. And then saying she does it for people with low bandwidth. Sigh. I guess she’s the Robin Hood of content.
Nifty JSON Generator
Fri, Jun 14th 2013 9:12a Kathy Brown I like working with JSON. Once you get the hang of it, it is a great way to handle data, easily get named values, etc. Often when you are developing, you need lots of records. Creating lots of records with many many values can be really tedious. Enter the JSON Generator. This is a simple, but fantastic site, that does just what it says.
On the left-hand side you can see the sample code to generate some JSON. You can take it as-is or modify it. Say your code calls for “busines [read] Keywords:
Update to VMs on External Drive
Wed, Jun 12th 2013 9:19a Kathy Brown I know you were all waiting with baited breath to see what I decided about using my VMs on an external drive. So I will let you out of your misery.
Although most of the comments indicated that I could do what I wanted, and it would work, and I likely wouldn’t notice much difference…I’m not going to do it.

VMs on an External Drive
Mon, Jun 10th 2013 7:17p Kathy Brown I’m thinking about making a move. Moving my VMs from my laptop to my external drive, that is.
I almost exclusively use VMs. I’m a mac girl, using Domino Designer. That means the majority of what I do is in a VM. Because I tend to have several VMs (not necessarily running at once) all loaded with various flavors of Domino, they start to get big. Rather than having it take up all kinds of space on my laptop (my current Mac Book Pro is nearly full), I’m thinking about mo [read] Keywords: domino
Article: Repeat Control 101
Wed, May 29th 2013 10:56a Kathy Brown From this month’s Notes Dev Tips Newsletter:
When I first started working with XPages, I immediately got the concept of repeat controls and saw some of the potential of what they could do. However, when I tried to actually use repeat controls, I ran into some roadblocks. So this is repeat control 101. If you’ve never used a repeat control, or tried it and it didn’t work right, hopefully this article will help you get going.

Response to Planet Lotus Question
Fri, May 24th 2013 8:47a Kathy Brown I recently asked if you use Planet Lotus on a blog post, that I shared in several locations. The response was interesting and varied greatly depending on the location.
Here on my blog, the comments seemed to indicate that yes, you had heard of Planet Lotus, and you used to check it frequently, some of you still do, but many of you have pulled back some and rely more on Twitter for your content.
Over on one LinkedIn group I am in the response was mostly positive. The responders there check it [read] Keywords: lotus
Notes in 9 Mobile Controls, FINALLY
Thu, May 23rd 2013 8:14a Kathy Brown Whew! I can finally get David Leedy to stop harassing me. He’s been bugging me for forever to contribute to Notes in 9. I finally did and then he had the audacity to be busy travelling for work, so this took a little bit to get published. (Just harassing you back, David!)
But here it is! My Notes in 9 episode on getting started with the extension library mobile controls in XPages. [read] Keywords: notes
NE LUG and Twitter Bootstrap
Fri, May 17th 2013 11:14a Kathy Brown On Tuesday, I spoke at the NE LUG meeting. I gave a quick presentation to get started with Twitter Bootstrap (slides on slideshare), and then we continued with a lengthy discussion about using Bootstrap with XPages. There were a lot of great questions and everyone seemed enthusiastic about trying it out.
So here are the slides (which aren’t much, it was much more about showing what Bootstrap can do, including some live demo and about the discussion, but here you go anway : – ) ). [read] Keywords: xpages twitter
Article: Simple Validation with XPages
Thu, May 16th 2013 8:36a Kathy Brown In the “May” edition of the Dev Tips Newsletter, I wrote about simple validation with XPages:
Of course there is really simple validation for XPages, which includes checking the “Required field” option on an edit box and entering the error message to display to the user. However, some elements do not have this option, and what if you want the field to have validation other than whether or not it is required?
