On the user interface side, many projects have already adopted the VIE interaction framework and widgets from Create, and in the content repository space projects like PHPCR move forward and there are also interesting new ideas like Apache Oak. While much of this has been made possible by the...

Midgard2 PHPCR provider hits 1.0

I'm happy to announce that we were able to release the first stable version of the Midgard2 PHPCR provider yesterday.Simply put, PHPCR is the future of Midgard's PHP API. Instead of having our own repository APIs, we follow the well-documented and tested PHP Content Repository specification. This allows much better compatibility with other projects, and for example the possibility to...

Using CoffeeScript for GNOME development

In Suski's blog I saw a question on whether developing GNOME apps would be possible in CoffeeScript. The answer is yes. I wrote a quick example back in Desktop Summit: # GObject Introspection APIs are available from imports.gi.ModulenameGtk = imports.gi.Gtk# For GNOME 3.2+ this should be Gtk.init null, 0Gtk.init 0, nullwin = new Gtk.Window type: Gtk.WindowType.TOPLEVELwin.set_border_width 10win.connect "destroy", (widget) ->...

Running CoffeeScript on Microsoft Azure

It is quite easy to run CoffeeScript applications on Azure now that they support Node.js. You can mostly follow the steps of their Node.js and Express tutorial, with couple of modifications.
