I've been hearing a lot of buzz about Ruby on Rails, so I finally got down to running through the tutorial at: http://www.onlamp.com/pub/a/onlamp/2005/01/20/rails.html
Pretty impressive I must say, but the jury will be out until I get to try and build something ‘real world’ with it. This might not be for a while, as all of my spare ‘geek’ spare time is being invested in Umbraco at the moment.
I am pretty sure it would handle any of the web projects that usually land at my feet, but it always comes down to whether I ‘like’ it or not.
Also, I did a brief search for UK based shared hosting packages that support ROR and only managed to find one.
This blog post describes how to hack Visual studio .net 2005 in order to compile projects targetted at the .net framework v 1.x.
There was a very good web chat yesterday about the Umbraco 3.0 package repository.
Details are here. http://www.umbraco.org/10722.aspx
This post should be subtitled "or stop moaning".As a pre-cursor to the main content of my post a note to CSS
developers. Be careful what you set your heart upon.
If IE6 was banished/killed/gone what would differentiate you from
any other web... such time that you've communicated to
your customer your EOL plan. If you've never supported IE6 or are
some gimmicky web 2.0 site then I guess it is your call.Now for #3. We've seen a series of sites recently such as I dropped IE6, IE6 Update, IE6...: the CTO isn't going to approve
browser upgrades on the basis that it makes your job easier. The
information out there right now is scant, and presenting a protest
web site URL to your CTO would make you look a bit silly to say the
A web poll is a useful way of gathering opinions from your site users. It is also one of the most trivial pieces of web functionality that you could write.A friend who is a java developer and has never really used .net or Umbraco wanted to see a real world example, so I put this together for him real quick (he was impressed).http://darren-fergusoncom.site.securepod.com/development/polldemo.aspxI’ll look at releasing a package at some point. It is implemented as a Macro that takes a question and a delimited set of answers as parameters.
After several months waiting for approval the Intro website is live.
Umbraco feeds XML to a flash front end build by
web maestro Rich Salter.
Site design was done internally by Intro.
Believe it or not, despite all of my interest in Umbraco, this
is my first site to go live other than my own domain!
I get quite a few questions about Umbraco Backup licensing, so here is clarification about what each licensing model means.
Personal/Non-Profit: For any type of not for profit web site e.g. charities and blogs. The license is tied to a fully qualified domain name e.g. www.mysite.com.
Single Umbraco instance: For a single commercial site, tied to domain name in the same way as a non-profit license is.
Server license: Allows you to install Umbraco Backup within as many Umbraco instances as you like on a single physical web server. All domain names for these sites *must* resolve to the same IP address. If you have two web servers you need two licenses. Changing the server IP is fine, the license is based on a domain, as long as all
I've created an umbraco package that will cache XML feeds - or any other http URL - to disk on your web server. Click here to download the package
The idea came about as a lot of people are displaying feeds on their web pages - flickr feeds, twitter etc. In Umbraco you can cache marcos that read external URLs, but ultimately when the cache expires one user will have to take the hit of requesting this external URL as part of their page download. If the third party server is down - which twitter frequently is - then this can result in a hefty wait until the request times out.
Instructions for using the package are in the readme prior to installation so be sure to read this before proceeding with the install.
At codegarden 09 I attended an open space session that discussed
the three current package repositories - our.umbraco projects, the
Umbraco package repository and the Umbraco store. My action point
from this discussion was to write up some information on how to
create a license provider that works with the Umbraco store. With
this in mind I've released my
framework for creating licenses on our.umbraco.org and also
created a wiki page which
explains how to configure the application.The application is written around spring.net and is easy to get
up and quickly. It is also very flexible allowing you to implement
some simple interfaces in several areas of the application where
you may want to customise functionality. Integration
As a result of user feedback, it seems that a few people are
having an issue with failed backups as a result of using a backup
target directory under your web root. This is because Umbraco
backup tries to backup it's own target zip file, causing some
This issue will be fixed with the release of 1.1, however,
unless you have to,Do not backup under the webroot.
Google and other search engines can index zip files and their
contents. One user has already made me... will
not let you write anywhere other than your webroot, 1.1 is coming
soon, but please note that you should download your backups from
your server and remove them from the web root upon completion.
