How to integrate the Lightbox script in IBM Lotus Domino web applications?

leave a comment »

On the pibako site I have described how you can integrate the Lightbox script in IBM Lotus Domino web applications. I have done this on my travel pages. For an example, see the travel page to Orlando. Open the page, scroll down and click on an image title. Unfortunately, the first loading is a little bit slow, so you should wait a few seconds.

Programmierrichtlinien für IBM Lotus Notes/Domino Anwendungen

with 2 comments

Programmierrichtlinien für IBM Lotus Notes/Domino-Anwendungen gibt es wenige. Im Gegensatz zu Java werden die Entwickler beim Schreiben von ‘gut lesbaren’ Code wenig unterstüzt. Deutlich wird dies auch, wenn man sich den Code der Standard-Datenbanken ansieht, welche mit IBM Lotus Notes/Domino ausgeliefert werden. Auf Kongressen (wie der DNUG, Lotusphere oder ILUG) werden immer mal wieder Progammiertipps gegeben. Bei uns in der Firma verwenden wir seit einigen Jahren Programmierrichtlinien für LotusScript, @-Formeln bzw. der Datenbankgestaltung. Damit ist es für andere Personen – außerhalb der Entwicklung – einfacher sich in den Datenbanken zu Recht zufinden. Diese wurden nun öffentlich verfügbar gemacht: PAVONE Programmierrichtlinien. Die Richtlinien basieren zum großen Teil auf Vorgaben, die von IBM Domino Global Workbench gemacht wurden. Ebenso hilfreich ist LotusScript.doc, womit eine Code-Dokumentation ähnlich zu JavaDoc erstellt werden kann. Dies hat den Vorteil, dass Entwickler, welche sowohl mit LotusScript, wie auch mit Java arbeiten, sich nicht groß umgewöhnen  müssen. Vielleicht findet der eine oder andere ein paar nützliche Anregungen, die er für ‘seine’ Anwendungen verwenden kann.

I Think I Like It (Part II)

leave a comment »

Since last week I use the Flock browser very often, instead of the Mozilla Firefox. Although, I do not use
the social networking features of Flock, I like the better design and some small features. For example, it shows a box if a website contains a RSS feed or shows the media stream of a website. The Flock browser is based on the Firefox engine. Unfortunately, it has some problems when I use Google Analytics with Flash animations.

Ning

leave a comment »

Yesterday evening I found an interesting website: Ning. It is an online service where everyone can create his own social networking community, such as myspace.com or XING. It has not the whole functionality of such communities but if you want to create an own small community maybe you can test Ning. It is free. I have not tested it, so this is not a recommendation. But I think such community tools are next step of ‘personal blogs’, where you can find friends in their own community. (I think the name ‘Ning’ has nothing to do with ‘Xing’).
