Anatomy of a JavaScript MV* Framework

The main features of an MV* application are routing, data binding,
templates/views, models, and data access. In this post I’ll describe
these features and show code examples from AngularJS, Backbone, and
Ember for each feature.

Historically, a controller would respond to some kind of user input, and
communicate that input to the model, or back to the view. In MV*
frameworks like Backbone, though, the controller logic is handled inside
the view itself.

event handling inside the view, communicating with the
model, and then sending updates back to the view. JavaScript:

 aside on super: JavaScript does not provide
a simple way to call super — the function of the same name defined
higher on the prototype chain. If you override a core function like
set, or save, and you want to invoke the
parent object's implementation, you'll have to explicitly call it, along these lines:

Backbone is an attempt to discover the minimal set
of data-structuring (models and collections) and user interface (views
and URLs) primitives that are generally useful when building web applications with

I’ve been waiting a little while for the new SR300 RealSense camera to show up from Intel and mine got delivered the other so I thought I’d write an initial post having played with it for around 30 minutes or so. Firstly, I thought that the camera might look like this; but it turned out … Continue reading Windows 10 UWP, Intel RealSense SR300, First Steps →

Nice Time Saver: Windows Universal App Image Scaler

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Recently I took my first steps into the world of Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps after many years of WPF. What came a bit as a shock to me was the sheer number of required/recommended tile and icon assets.Most of the images are versions of the same image, scaled to different sizes. Of course, creating these images is something that can and should be automated, starting from a sufficiently large image.One way to handle this is via Photoshop Actions, but when looking for a simpler solution I came across the Windows Universal App Image
Scaler. This is a Visual Studio extension that adds a context menu entry to the Solution Explorer. You simply right-click an image file, choose “Scale image for Windows Universal app…” and specify the kind of images you want to create. When you press “Ok”, the output will be written to the directory that contains the source image, and that’s it!You find this nice extensionin the “Extensions and Updates” dialog inside Visual Studio (via the “Tools” menu) by clicking “Online”, “Visual Studio Gallery” and searching for “app image scaler”,on the Visual Studio Gallery website: on GitHub:

The puzzles are interesting and in most cases, if we try to play around a little bit more, many more interesting extensions can be added. A couple of weeks back, I wrote a round – SELECT One by Two – Why Does SELECT 1/2 Returns 0 – Interview Question of the Week #067. It brought some good interactions as comments over the blog and I was happy we were all excited about something as simple as this. The post SELECT One by Two – Interview Question Extended – Part II appeared first on Journey to SQL Authority
