Recently I have been working a lot on migrating android projects to use gradle building system. Seriously it is much better than the old time. I can easily use libraries on maven repositories and customize my building process. I also no long need to create a desperate project for testing. Awesome!
it’s been a while since the last post. After coming to new york, I have been very busy on my study, personal projects and (of course) playing around. studying in new york university is harsh, but not as hard as i think. I met nice people, hanged out with my beloved new friends. I even found people having great interests in technologies and software development.
with love, a photo in central park is nice.
For both server and website developing, I usually use Xampp’s Apache to create a localhost server. However, I hate to put my important files in the htdocs inside Apache. Instead I would rather put the folder inside Documents, and make a link to htdocs.
First, create a symbolic link from your actual folder to htdocs. For example, ln -s /Users/Nicholas/Documents/Xampp Workspace /Applications/Xampp/xamppfiles/htdocs/nicholas.
However, this is not done because the owner of your directory is Nicholas, but not “nobody”. Also, we cannot change the folder’s owner to nobody as this is actually an illegal owner. So what we gonna do is add Nicholas as the user in Apache. [Caution: This can actually create a security issue on your computer, since now the Xampp can access files of the user Nicholas]
To do that, add “user Nicholas” to the end /Applications/Xampp/xamppfiles/etc/httpd.conf. Then restart Xampp.
It’s quite often for a developer to make use of the user agent to determine what browser does a user used, especially for those who develop web services and websites. Recently I found a website which has a huge database of mobile device information, including the user agent string and even the functions supported in the device browser.
Happy lunar new year to all.
I am flattered. In less than a month since I put the InstaMusic to the Android Market on 27 Dec 2011, today it has already more than 10,000 downloads. To be honest, I never expected this.
If you are uninitialized, InstaMusic is a music player android application with simple and stylish outlook.
There are all kinda music player in the world, in my opinion, a player with style and an pleasant appearance would always become the famous one. Here I would like to thank you for downloading and trying InstaMusic. Especially those fans of minimalism who supported me and AndroidStatic who gave InstaMusic a pleasant review in the post “Instamusic Is A Minimal, Slick Music Player That You Should Download Now“.
Looking back the day that I began my developmement, the reason for me to kick started is that I was really unstatisfied with the music players on the Android Market. Admittedly, I am a perfectionist and I want every part of a music player to meet user’s ways of thinking. So, I hate album artworks to be scratched and unable to tell what album is it. I also hate a song sung by different artists will be will be isolated from the album. And millions of things to list.
Okay, let’s get back to talk about the my next build of InstaMusic. I am sorry for the long waited update. In code level, I really did an upside down on InstaMusic. And as expected, lock screen player is implemented already, but there are just some bug and pressure testing work to do before it can really come out to meet its users.
Caffeine has been a very useful app to instantly disable or enable the screensaver on mac. At least for me, I am using multiple computers in office and all of them except the one I am using will usually get idle. Getting into screensaver, however, is bad sometimes especially I was reading from that screen and type things on another screen, and not to mention the password input after the screen lock. Well anyway, I highly recommend it.
On mac, we can install it easily with the app store.
But in ubuntu, it is not available on the software center. But you can still get it through command line. Turn on terminal and input the following one by one.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:caffeine-developers/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install caffeine
