Play! Circus - For URL Perfectionists
This is a module I’m currently working on after making a suggestion in Play! Framework Mailing List, I realized that this one module could actually be nice to have. Goals of the module: Generation of Java files using routes Generation of template files Increase productivity Right now I’m almost done with the method generation which will look like this: Link to pastebin (sorry my...
Don’t try to change people, change the process.– some weird dude I couldn’t get the name!
Fine, I will learn C first than C++ I’ve been bought with a good reason too. You know sometimes I don’t know if learning as a hobbyist has more advantages than going to college probably not
Creating an easy installer in Play! is tricky but...
I’ve been working on some Play! related projects for some time now. This one is a gallery that I plan to release to a targeted audience. Usually when we use a web framework we sort of forget that eventually we will need to write an installer so the user or client can install the application without any technical voodoo crawling around. The only downside of this is portability, for a simple...
Looking at code you wrote more than two weeks ago is like looking at code you...– So true :( Dan Hurvitz (via adamjmorgan)
Why Do Programmers Write Apps and then Make Them... →
kawohi-art: I love this question, tons of answers and reasons why you should give your apps away for free. One of the answers: One of the main reasons why I’d consider releasing an app for free is because it’s a surefire addition to my portfolio for future endeavors (potential job opportunities, promoting your name in the programming world). That’s more than enough payment if you ask me.
Even after all my trouble with Play! Framework… there is no way I would jump to another web framework. For Python: Django For PHP: …? Zend Framework.. Zend seems to have over-engineered their framework, Kohana and CakePHP seems the way to go, still I would use some of their classes. Back to work
At last, #supernatural is today, a good time to relax after programming all week. I had an horrible nightmare last night… that they brought Stephanie Meyer to write SN script.
My first novel was rejected by seven agents before I found someone willing to...– Jonathan Safran Foer (via fernandofrench)
I find it weird that I get better performance using Play! in Linux than in Windows… well, fine, not weird and probably obvious but since we are talking about the JVM here… why is it faster on linux than in windows?… it’s a guess by the way
I was just reading some comparisons between Python vs PHP, and it went like this, “python supports blah blah blah”, then a PHP guy would say “we do too!” http://wiki.python.org/moin/PythonVsPhp Check the retorts.. really silly, they should clean up and put some code examples if they are going to retort.
Bah, I found some workarounds for my Host routes issues, today it worked fine and well, time to keep working on…
My only wish: Better support for Host routes
Yesterday I started working on a authentication module for Play! Framework called GateKeeper, this module will help me authenticate people in different host routes, for example: billing.myapp.com accounts.myapp.com You get the idea, right? Problem is that when it comes to reverse routing, and the annoying router matching it instantly kills progress and the first thing you do is to start poking...
A few days ago I started to learn C++, I was kinda disappointed due to not finding a decent book on C++ so I looked at StackOverflow and started looking for the best C++ books for beginners and I saw lots of programmers recommending this book and it’s really as they say, pure awesome. Today I read a few chapters and did examples to get myself started and motivated on learning this...
hmm... too many books... which one is the CORRECT...
I’ve been doing some research on the following subjects: JPA 2.0, Hibernate, Swing (best practices). I’ve done MVC in PHP before, but web interface is just not the same as creating an application with Swing. For JPA 2.0, I’m settling with “Pro JPA 2: Mastering the Java Persistence API”, for hibernate, I need a good one with examples of HQL. Oh well, time to start...
Things to change
If you have read in blog description, it says I’m a growing developer (not just web… gotta fix that) so in the morning I start looking for programming articles, mostly related to Java and Application servers, blah blah. My motivation to learn Java came from nowhere, I just liked it, it was ideal and loved how “strict” is the language. Unlikely PHP, Python and other...
Play! Framework - What you should know!
