MWLUG Recap
Sat, Aug 20th 2016 11:27p   Keith Strickland
I had a great time at MWLUG this year. It was great to see so many familiar faces and friends, most of which I only see at the user groups. But, I just got home and thought I would share some of my thoughts and observations about the event and my take away about the state of our beloved Notes. As usual Richard Moy put together a great conference, so many thanks to him for making that event possible. The tone of the event was that most everyone is starting to realize that the Notes client is qui

Domino svg support
Fri, Aug 12th 2016 12:09p   Keith Strickland
I’ve been messing with the Polymer vaadin-grid. If you enable hidable columns, a little graphic svg icon shows in the top right hand corner of the grid that produces a drop down menu of all the columns in the grid. You click one and it’ll hide that column. This was working great when running from my local gulp server. However when I put it on Domino, the little icon wasn’t showing, but the button was there (you couldn’t see it tho) and the menu worked when clicked. I di

Setting up a Polymer development environment
Fri, Jul 29th 2016 11:35a   Keith Strickland
When working with Polymer you’ll need a development environment. Google has created some great tools for doing this, mainly the Polymer-CLI. This is a command line interface for creating elements, applications, building applications (though I prefer a Gulp build system), a web server and some other misc. tools. This should be your starting point for setting up your development environment. To setup the polymer-cli you’ll need a few dependencies: Git Node.js (4.x) Bower Once those a

sortablejs – Drag-n-Drop without jQuery UI
Thu, Jul 21st 2016 4:59p   Keith Strickland
I had a need to enable drag-n-drop for a particular part of our portal. In the past I’ve always used jQuery-UI as it’s quite easy to enable drag-n-drop. Doing some research I came across a StackOverflow question about enabling drag-n-drop with Polymer. One of the answers mentioned sortablejs. This is a very minimalist library to enable drag-n-drop. Best part about this library is that it has a port for Polymer. BONUS! But there are several ports available: Angular, Knockout, Meteor,

Polymer app-layout Elements
Fri, Jul 1st 2016 5:23p   Keith Strickland
Looking at the Polymer app-layout elements I have to say these are pretty cool! Some of it is old news because it was/is supported via the paper-drawer-panel, paper-header and paper-toolbar elements. However by taking the lessons learned with those elements and creating their “app” siblings I think it makes for a much nicer implementation. The basic use of the app-layout elements would look something like this: [[contentTitle]]

Re-usability is the Goal!
Tue, Jun 14th 2016 5:58p   Keith Strickland
When developing modern web applications, we want to build components that are re-usable. The more reusable it is, the better. When things are re-usable we get a lot of benefits going forward with future applications, mainly speed of development. But we also get the ability to update a component in one place and the next update to any app that uses that component, we just get the new version. One thing that is pretty popular in Domino apps and some modern web apps is a picker. A list of items on

1.5 Years with Polymer Web Components
Sun, May 29th 2016 3:31p   Keith Strickland
For about the last 6 to 8 months I’ve been doing a lot of development using Polymer Web Components. I started with the 0.5 developer release version. My experience so far has been a little bitter sweet.  Using version 0.5 I had to jump quite a few hoops to get things working, but once I figured out the patterns all was well with the world. In the Beginning I had chosen to use Backbone Marionette for the MVC architecture for my apps. I already knew Marionette so I felt the logical choice w

Welcome to keithstric.me. The new home of my blog. Due to my inaction I ended up loosing keithstric.com. I was able to move the past 10 years worth of blog posts here, but I’m still missing the first 4 years of posts. Oh well, guess that’s what happens when you ignore a problem. But let’s get to my rant. I’m building an application using just Polymer. It’s a RESTful application so all server communication is via AJAX requests. When dealing with AJAX requests itR

Long time no blog

It's been a while since I've posted here so… how about an end of year recap for anyone interested. Red Pill Development changed it's name to Red Pill Now with a whole marketing campaign around it I spoke at MWLUG and ATLUG I started messing around with Polymer Web components and think this is the way web development should be done. I did a couple of training sessions on Javascript and Backbone/Marionette Red Pill hired a creative director, Bob Kadrie and is contracting with a

XMage, your XPrentice will surely miss you
Mon, May 12th 2014 5:28p   Keith Strickland
I am truly saddened and devastated by the news I received today of the death of Tim Tripcony. I would like to express my heartfelt condolences and sympathy to Tim's family and friends. I would also like to explain how Tim helped change both my personal and professional life. The loss of Tim has already left me feeling a rather large empty space where he once stood. Before I was hired at GBS I learned a lot from Tim's blog and the few chat sessions I had with him. I had never met him pe

My first impressions of using Titanium Appcelerator
Sun, Dec 8th 2013 1:46p   Keith Strickland
A couple of weeks ago I started messing with Titanium Appcelerator. Coming from Domino Designer and Eclipse the IDE will look very familiar. It's eclipse and it's based off of Aptana Studio. I guess the biggest issue to being productive is the learning curve for the API. But honestly when is that not the case? So starting to delve into this, Titanium apps are purely client side javascript based. You write the CSJS that builds the UI, Business Logic, Layout, everything. While this may s

2 Days with Domino 9.0.1 Mobile Controls – And I’m not happy
Wed, Oct 30th 2013 3:27p   Keith Strickland
OK, so today is the 2nd day I've spent with the Mobile controls from Domino 9.0.1. I must say the lack of a 9.0.1 Beta is quite obvious. So some of the "improvements" IBM made to the mobile controls are the addition of onBeforeTransitionIn/Out onAfterTransitionIn/Out. While these events are sorely needed, the implementation IBM chose to use doesn't work is kind-of odd. So, a brief rundown of the transition events pre 9.0.1. I posted a while back about how to implement these methods i
