…cases, so let's kick off with a few of my favorite tools: WebStorm (an HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and more developer IDE from JetBrains ) and Express.js (a simple, minimal and extensible web application framework).

WebStorm and Express.js

Normally for an Express.js-based application, I'd run ‘npm install express -g' to install Express locally and then I can use the command ‘express application_name' to put the default scaffolding …

Tarsnap is the world's best secure online backup service. It's run by Colin Percival, Security Officer Emeritus at FreeBSD, a truly gifted cryptographer and programmer. I use it extensively in my company, recommend it to clients doing Serious Business (TM) all the time, and love seeing it successful.

It's because I am such a fan of Tarsnap and Colin that it frustrates me to death . Colin is not a great engineer who is bad at business and thus compromising …

…choose the default homepage view, pick the colors for each of your categories and even copy/paste HTML for your custom header or a CSS stylesheet to override site-wide styles.

Here's Discourse's default UI:

If you need to do something more customized, you can do this by — you guessed it — a plugin! We leaned on our ninja Javascript guru, Kevin Reese , for a lot of this work. A good example of where this was needed was for something that seems fairly simple, …

The simpler devices get, the more complex our jobs as developers becomes it seems.

When I first started my independent developer career way back in the dark ages of 2006, building an app usually meant building a desktop product that persisted data locally. In some cases there was an Internet backed service tied to it, but it wasn't the norm. This was before Dropbox, people.

If you truly wanted Internet connected services, you built web apps. Using a mix of HTML, CSS and a sprinkling …

…Tonight's topic will be Do's and Don'ts of Adding HTML to Your Apps , and the description is as follows:

Sooner or later someone is going to ask you to put HTML in your app. Instead of holding up two fingers like a cross at a vampire or defaulting to some solution like PhoneGap it's better to know how it works under the covers so you can tailor it to your app and preserve a good use experience.

…also get a lot of wonkiness you're likely not used to. For instance, I tried to copy/paste an HTML page I had imported into Evernote to OneNote. The app inserted it as a big pile of gibberish and garbage text. Not even raw HTML tags. Just junk text.

Outside of that though, its a well done 1.0. Keyboard shortcuts feel natural. Data input is quick and works well. And there are so many different data detector types supported by OneNote that's important.

…entire application. Extensibility, specifically extensibility provided through the HTML, CSS, and JS web technologies that most developers (and some non-developers) know and use every day, is basically the strongest selling point this editor has. Say what you want about using HTML in a desktop application, but exposing your plugin architecture as a bunch of HTML/CSS is something even some of my non-tech friends could pick up and hack on.
