I’ve been working on a mapping property editor for Umbraco 7 recently that allows users to pick a location and zoom, or do an address lookup. Since users of the front-end website will see open street map tiles when they publish their pages, I thought it’d make sense to also show them the same style map in the back-office when they’re actually creating it. I learnt a few bits and pieces about angularjs directives here as well. Grab the code here if you like and read on.
I’ve implemented the wonderful Hybrid Framework for Umbraco and got it upgraded to Umbraco 7. All good. But…as the site continues to grow and gets more complex, I’m feeling more and more scared of doing big development. This post looks at how I set up unit testing using NUnit, Microsoft Fakes and Moq. I used help from Andy Butlands post on using Microsoft Fakes, so kudos there!
I recently had to create a REST service using .net’s web api. The only problem was that it was outputting the class name and properties ‘as-is’ and the root node was just was ‘ArrayOfClassName.’ This post is about outputting custom elements, attributes and root nodes using Xml serialization.
I’ve been working with (and liking) the zurb foundation framework for a bit now. Some bits of it however don’t seem to be that accessible, such as keyboard navigation. This short post is about one way I found to make drop-downs keyboard navigable.
This post is a super-simple one about creating post-it style buttons using just css. The usual ie7,8 crap applies.
This post is all about me trying to set up this wordpress site using bootstrap and the core less files, with netbeans as the IDE. I’m using Netbeans 7.4, WordPress 3.7 and LESS.
