NetBeans Platform Chapter 3: Window System

Chapter 3: Window System

Everything you should now about creating layout in NetBeans applications. Most of it can be done declaratively, and in standard cases Wizards will do the job. But there is more! Despite NetBeans standard layout positions you can create new ones. End even create groups of them(something like perspectives in Eclipse).   If you want even more power about layout window position and even opening and closing of them can be changed programmatically! Of course groups of windows can be managed as well.
At the end of the chapter there was example about saving data and about how NetBeans is remembering last state of opened windows. Using writeProperties and readPropertiesInpl we can store some data using key-value pairs. It could be handy for storing some custom configuration, or even last state of edit or whatever user was doing in application.

Chapter 4: Lookup - how to use another modules and ensure that they are still loosely coupled... I really want to see how they make it :)

And one private info: I feel sick and last tow days I've spent in bed so chapter 3 was the only thing I done :(  there is more... I still feel sleepy and still feels sick.

I am searching for twitter client with great or at leas good support for unread messages. Now I am using TweetDeck it's fine but not what I want... I think that something like google reader( i know about service sending tweets to reader, but then I had to many rss :/ ) so I need another client... In ubuntu I probably must wait for Gwibber 3, but maybe something for AIR or Windows?

How to simulate slow connection (developer proxy in Node.js)

Update: If you use Chrome then you can use "Throttling" so simulate slow network for all your assets. This should be easier than proxy.

For some time I wanted to use some proxy for development and testing of eg. slow internet connection, but it was hard to find something useful and free. I know there is Charles but buy it to use it at most one in a month is not for me.

I started thinking about Node.js, maybe I can write proxy for me? But fortunately I found one.

With this module I can write really short code to create slow server:

var http = require('http'), httpProxy = require('http-proxy'); httpProxy.createServer(function (req, res, proxy) { var buffer = httpProxy.buffer(req); setTimeout(function () { proxy.proxyRequest(req, res, { host: 'localhost', port: 8080, …

Course Review: The Bitfountain iOS 8 with Swift Immersive

This is second big iOS learning project. For first one read iOS Programming book review. As I only have two of them done I have to compare them somehow.

I am mindful that it took me a really long time to finish it (since last autumn). For a couple of months this year I didn't even have the internet to learn it, so it could not be helped. But last half of the June I've spent watching the videos every day and managed to finish it before any new internet problems.

So how was it?
In my opinion, it's great if you're starting out. There are a lot of basics, and seeing how to do things in XCode just makes your learning much easier than looking at the photos in the book. On the other hand, learning is more shallow and it is much easier to just follow the videos and learn only the basics without bigger picture about iOS SDK. I somehow missed more challenging exercises (even though I don't like to do them ;)

Course it pretty long but many videos are quite short (1-2…
