I had need to make use of some of the more advanced Dojo Mobile controls for a project last week which ship with Dojo 1.7.2. For various reasons I needed the Dojo files inside the nsf rather than on the file system, and if you've had to do that before you'll know what a massive pain it is to get the files loaded. So I thought I'd share a simple nsf with the files loaded.
The other changes I've made to the database are to disable the standard Dojo libraries (1.6.1 in 8.5.3) in the xsp.properties file and also turned off the default theme settings as well so no CSS will be downloaded unless you manually specify it in the resources.
Disable automatic On Disk Project syncing
Wed, May 15th 2013 4:00a Matt White I use source control on every single Domino database that I work on. Often because I want a database under formal change control so that I can relate individual change requests to the changes made in the source code. But also mainly to cover my backside. When I make a mistake (and it is when, not if), having my database under source control allows me to recover things quickly.If you're new to source control in Domino Designer, I have made a video available which walks you through my workflow.Bu [read] Keywords: domino
Call for Abstracts for ICON UK
Mon, May 13th 2013 7:50a Matt White Warren announced that ICONUK, the new name for UKLUG, is happening again this year, in Brighton in September. Hopefully you've registered already, but have you thought about presenting?You'll often hear big conference speakers mention that their first taste of speaking was at a User Group like ICON, indeed it was mine five years ago when I presented with Bruce Elgort and Sean Burgess. A truly terrifying experience, but so worthwhile.This year, as ever, we have three tracks of sessions; Infrast [read] Keywords: connections
Coding the new UKLUG (ICONUK) site
Tue, Apr 30th 2013 6:40a Matt White The old UKLUG site had served us well for several years, but with a new name for UKLUG it was a good opportunity to re-write the conference management application from scratch. To be honest I was more than a little embarrassed about the old site as well, design is not my strong point to say the least. So now that there are things like Twitter Bootstrap out there, I can offload that work onto people who are actually good at it.So what have we created? Well it's an end to end management system fo [read] Keywords: admin
Mon, Apr 29th 2013 10:00a Matt White I've heard many mentions of Google Now over the last few weeks, not sure why, it's been around for a while now, but anyway I was curious to find out more.First problem is "what is Google Now?". Well it's not really an application, more of a feature of the Google app in Android (I'm not an iOS user at the moment). The larger issue happens if you're a Google Apps For Business as I am, then it's surprisingly difficult to enable at all. The whole process is documented nicely here:1) Launch y [read] Keywords: application
Dojo lesson learned in upgrading from 8.5.3 to 9.0
Thu, Apr 18th 2013 7:40a Matt White It's becoming increasingly the case that you can't assume that what once worked in a previous version of XPages will continue to work in future versions. Today I have come across a case in point.In my life at Elguji, we do a lot of hosting IdeaJam sites. To make this an easier process to manage we created a provisioning application called Jampot. It allows us to create and manage instances of IdeaJam from a central location very quickly. One of the features it offers is a bulk registration of [read] Keywords: xpages application
Pebble smart watch first thoughts
Fri, Feb 15th 2013 11:50a Matt White Months and months ago (May 2012 to be precise) I signed up for my second Kickstarter project called "Pebble" which as most of the world knows by now was aiming to create a smart watch which integrates with your phone for alerts and apps. First thing to say is that I really enjoyed the process of watching the watch be developed and certainly wasn't one of those people moaning about how long the thing took to create. It went viral so delays, even large ones were to be expected.That being said w [read] Keywords: applications

A return to Android
Fri, Jan 18th 2013 10:40a Matt White I do a lot of mobile Web development so I try and keep on top of the two major device streams, Apple's iOS and Google Android. I over the years I have alternated between the two with my day to day devices and at the moment I'm firmly in the Android camp with, Galaxy S3 as my phone and Nexus 7 as my tablet. It's been a while since I properly used Android and it's really come on as a platform. So I though I'd go through some of my key apps. For Twitter I use Falcon Pro. In reality this is the [read] Keywords: apple
