  • XCode and Rhodes Upgrading for iOS5

    October 24, 2011

    So I recently updated my iPhone to iOS5.  Its a 3GS … so it was less than exciting to see the end result.  Yea, there are some GUI enhancements, but nothing really worth the trouble its causing now.  What trouble?  When you build an app using XCode, and you want to deploy it to your […]

  • redirect with parameters

    October 7, 2011

    I posted a while back about passing parameters between views from within a link. Today I’ll post this code to remind myself how to do that from within a redirect. Sometimes in your view or controller, you might call a method to do something – say store something in the database and pop up a […]

  • PABUG Status & Screenies

    October 3, 2011

    So – I’ve neglected to write posts as I’ve worked on this, mostly because I’ve been trying things, and need to complete this as soon as possible.  I’ve gotten a few emails asking about the progress, so instead of dragging out the time until the next post about it, I’ve decided to attach some screenshots […]

  • Formatting Dates

    September 28, 2011

    Dates suck.  Simple fact, no matter what language you’re using, formatting, date-math, converting or parsing dates … it all sucks. So in an effort to try to limit the suck you have to go through if/when you have to deal with dates, I hope this helps. My app, when first loaded, pulls a feed from […]

  • PABUG (Pt3) – Mobile Connection 1.1

    July 22, 2011

    <QUICKNOTE> A coworker here has created a set of web forms, reports and database tables to collect all the conference information including presenters, sessions, tracks, attendance, exhibitors, vendors, etc.  I won’t go into any of that, other than to mention I now have at my disposal all the data I need to make an app, […]

  • Mobile App Adventures

    July 12, 2011

    I’m currently working on a mobile application for a local user group’s annual conference.  The group is PABUG (Pennsylvania Banner User Group).  Each year we hold a conference with multiple tracks, dozens of sessions, and host between 350-500 attendees over the course of two days, not bad for a small user group 🙂 Sungard Higher […]

  • Development Configuration

    April 27, 2011

    I’ve had some light discussion about development tools when creating Rhodes / Rhomobile / Sungard HE Mobile Connection apps.  I decided to use (and learn) Eclipse.  Here’s my current setup on my MacBookPro – Ruby 1.8.7 – default install that came with the laptop Rhodes 2.4.1 – latest (at the time of this post) version […]

  • Default code works … sometimes

    April 12, 2011

    With Ruby – you can run a command and get a default set of files that will get you up and running quickly.  With Rhodes, its the same thing, you run the rhogen command and it’ll build out a set of files for you whether you’re building a new app or adding a model.  This […]

  • Badges … we don’t need to stinking badges

    April 12, 2011

    Unless they’re wicked cool like this. I stumbled across this little gem about 10 minutes ago while looking for code to do something completely non-related to this.  Had no idea what it did, found it in the example project from Rhomobile. So you have a tabbar across the bottom of your app like this – […]

  • Debug your app in a browser

    April 11, 2011

    UPDATED : 19 APR 2011 The Rhodes framework utilizes Ruby to allow the developer to build a mobile app.  Debugging always seems to be an issue, no matter what type of programming you’re doing.  You have to look over webserver logs, error logs, sometimes the screen, and the errors sometimes have nothing to do with […]
