This post is in regards to what I’ve been playing with or thinking about playing with in no particular order:
- Learning Haskell
- Postgrest is written in Haskell which is a server based application that exposes Postgres Schema as Rest Service. It support oAuth security, CRUD, stored procedures and querying)
- Leaning Elm
- Visual Studio Code
- Visual Studio 2015 cross platform support for iOS, Android, Clang, etc
- C++ Certification (I know C and Java so this should be easy)
- Progress Web Apps
- Game Maker / Enigma Development Environment
- Hackaton / Hackdays
- IOT (ActiveMQ, Mosquitto message broker)
Since the client runs locally and potential in some cases are actually installed locally would communicate with one or more remotely hosted Web API’s.
The new buzz word patented by someone is WebApi which is just what I explained above. A WebApi is not tied to any specific client side technology. The protocol is standard http or https. The WebApi exposes its interface in the form of a SDK. Documentation contained in this SDK explain the detailed request and response format. It is also important to include proper error response. Error response in the same way that http responds with errors like error 500 or 400.
I’m not sure who uses WordPress for blogging but if you do and you have a apple product like iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch then I would recommend you try out the WordPress for iOS. If your an iOS developer I would recommend you get the code from the SVN repository. I guess I can point you to the WordPress iOS blog instead of writing about it.
The Admin part is native and good support for both iPhone and iPad devices. The Dashboard is just a Web view of WordPress Admin interface. It needs to be a little more responsive for smaller viewing area.
The published WordPress Blog is all HTML and responsive. It is presented via a web view within the iOS app using the smaller view port layout. If you go to a WordPress Blog via your iPhone or iPad you get the same response.
The settings allows you to add multiple WordPress blogs you are managing.
Contains a Photo feature for selecting photos from your device library or taking new pictures and posting them. This is an excellent feature when your blogging on the road.
I did a blog update while I was on the road using my iPhone 5. I will have to say it was very doable but would have been even better experience on the lap or iPad. Either way managing your WordPress Blogs using your iPhone or iPad is very easy with this application and best of all it is free.
Source Code is available It is stored in the public Trac SCM repository (SVN). In terms of documentation it is like any other open source project. You have the code with comments, forum and defect tracking, that’s about it. I’m sure someday there will be a book out about WordPress from ORA if not already.
It is a subset of the web based dashboard that is implemented. So you have options for managing Posts, Pages, Comments, Stats (require a plugin) and View Site (Web Admin Page).
