    relevant chapters of Vi and Vim and can safely say that other than scripting I feel well versed in vim usage Finally managed to get pathogen working on my Windows work box remotely today which made me very happy It was all being held up by a problem resolving https versions of repo URIs in that all my submodular plugins under bundle had failed to clone when the first https guy was reached Be aware of this issue if you re gitifying pathogenizing your vim setup I just barely cracked the virtual cover of Stoyan Stefanov s JavaScript Design Patterns but am liking the tone quite a bit so far I ve certainly mentioned elsewhere that Stefanov s previous book Object Oriented JavaScript is my favorite book on the core language so I have high expectations for this one Very excited to see what happens with the new webOS stuff though like many others I m a little upset they ve pulled the plug on OTA 2 0 Gotta check out Enyo over the weekend If you ve already played with it please share your opinions in the comments Anyone heard even a rumbling on carrier rumors I also briefly

    down when I had my head turned away express routes are like Sammy Sinatra using HTTP verbs with patterns to match next passes on control to next piece of middleware Jade is very similar to haml allows filters like haml markdown uses to jump into js for condition lines etc no blocks of js needed just indentation no before tagname haml uses this multiline text needs to be prefixed with on each line haml doesn t need this will escape html will not jade has layouts partials like Rails in template this refers to app Express routes receive params like Rails in request params has response redirect response render methods similar to Rails fs module can be used for dealing with static files has both sync and async methods Expresso comes with Express now have I got this right You can use make to run tests Comes with rcov like tool called test cov Didn t get much detail about this express command works similar to rails command generates an app directory etc Interestingly you can t use this outside an existing directory Tim Caswell creationix was up next socket io and the game client Tim built a cool demo the beginnings of a game really You can see it on https github com joyent node camp tree master hexes He tried to bring some interactivity to the git together sometimes I kill me by having people shout out ideas for games etc There were one or two volunteers with ideas but mostly the room was silent People s shyness in large groups seems to have kept them from participating much in sessions like this it certainly kept me from doing so The main thing I got out of the talk was that socket io which seems freaking awesome falls back to long polling Flash XML request iframe and maybe even more options if WebSocket is unavailable in the browser should work everywhere Matt Ranney on Redis His company is doing Voice over HTTP ha Crazy right He was majorly enthusiastic about Redis I can tell you that Redis is like good for session shared data across like many processes great for when you outgrow one node Quick note Ranney totally reminds me of Jeff Haynie Not totally sure why I was very happy to finally hear someone else pronounce JSON Jason Go team And stuff Ranney s redis client ensures client requests finish in order so you can embed a callback in only the last request this is accomplished via combining all queries into one http request piped together Redis is straight key value simple client redis cli with GET SET commands special functions for pubsub storing getting entire hashes harder to make work as primary db I was glad to hear him speak about redis as a great tool while still mentioning its downsides After this we broke for lunch and my note taking and consciousness maintaining abilities suffered noticeably The following are my afternoon notes Afternoon Cloud9

  • thyncology : Gracefully Degrading Widgets, Part 2: Navbars & jQuery Plugins
    takes two parameters each a function The first will be run on mouseOver and the second will be run on mouseOut So that s a start Our submenu is fading in and out But what if you accidentally mouse off the submenu The damned thing fades away instantly To get around this limitation we ll use a handy built in feature of JavaScript setTimeout This function takes as its parameters a function literal to be called after a specified number of milliseconds followed by a timeout value in milliseconds On mouseOver we ll set a class on the element let s call it over On mouseOut we ll remove the class and call setTimeout After a specified amount of time let s say 500ms we ll check whether the class over is present on the top level nav and if it isn t we ll fade it out If it is indicating the nav item has been hovered over again we do nothing nav first li first hover function this addClass over this children ul fadeIn function var li this setTimeout function if li hasClass over li fadeOut 500 This new code sets it up exactly as we d like it for the first submenu content alone What we want to do is make this reusable as much as possible and also make it versatile That s where jQuery s plugin system comes in jQuery plugins are like any other widget initializer code only they automatically get to take advantage of jQuery s fancy schmancy selector system They should also be written using the function name jQuery rather than because jQuery optionally allows itself to be alternately aliased so that it can sit along side other libraries which might also define a global function Both Prototype and MooTools do this and still jQuery can run in combination with these libraries If you were to use the function you could likely be unintentionally calling the Prototype or MooTools selector function rather than jQuery s Instructions on authoring jQuery plugins can be found on jQuery s Web site It all boils down to Respecting the jQuery function name over Defining your function as a property of jQuery fn and Returning the jQuery object that it is called on this allows chaining calls something near and dear to jQuery developers hearts To be incorporated as an official plugin the plugin should be defined in a standalone file named jquery plugin name js where plugin name is your plugin s name Let s take a look at the next version of our code the first as a plugin jQuery fn nav function return this each function var nav jQuery this nav find li hover function jQuery this children ul fadeIn function var li jQuery this setTimeout function if li hasClass over li fadeOut 500 This is a very suitable fine piece of code and it s even a plugin now It s even reusable because it s no longer tied to the nav class

    iCal pop reminders at me from stuff I put in my Palm yet May have to disable the iCal bit One alarm is enough already I have to say Quicksilver is immediately becoming my go to app for anything in the world like TextMate is for quick coding as well as some power moves I may have to look into writing some plugins for it though as immediately sending links from browser to buddies via Adium would be a great feature and I was thinking of another one earlier that I just can t recall now it is 4 35 AM But Quicksilver is like Spotlight on meth immensely faster and smarter It learns your nuances so that over time it retrieves the information you re looking for faster An example I bring up the Quicksilver interface Ctrl Space and begin my query by typing text This brings up 6 results Among these are a link to the Text Snippets site TextEdit and TextMate As I ve said TextMate is quick becoming my weapon of choice for editing so I see that as being my top choice after entering text However the Text Snippets link is top for some reason Perhaps it was indexed first Regardless after playing the search and run game twice and picking TextMate both times Quicksilver has learned that this is my top choice From there on out assuming I never chose from among the other results it will be safe to hit Enter knowing that TextMate will launch But it s smarter than that even TextMate applies this preference learning to shorter queries as well So now automatically it associates textmate with t for instance It s full of these things The whole app was built on the philosophy of acting without doing and seems to achieve that lofty goal very well Speaking of TextMate I ve been playing a bit more I like Ctrl Shift Q runs a one liner query on your localhost SQL db Rad Ctrl Shift A brings up a context menu with SVN actions If you don t know the keyboard shortcuts and triggers for a given bundle hit Ctrl Esc to bring up the menu you d otherwise have to click for which I ve been doing So nice to have things so simple One thing I keep wishing Eclipse had For all of its power Eclipse has no means for customizing its menus or adding buttons or even keyboard shortcuts for any menu actions That s just plain crazy So in order to commit a file to SVN you ve got to right click a file in Navigator or whatever file browser your editor uses or alternately in an open document and chose Team and then chose Commit and who has that much time Especially when Eclipse has 30 odd items bulging at the seams of every menu and submenu For more keyboard shortcuts and general usage on the included bundles check this page of the online manual
