  11. <title>Create To Do Lists from Comments in TextMate</title>
  12. <link></link>

  14. <description>
  15. Test Driven Developemnt and GTD both employ To Do lists to keep track of tasks. I've been a big fan of these task lists, but I've found that I have way too many items on my list to keep them organized. These days I prefer to keep my development-related todo items in the comments of the source code. This allows me to associate the todo item with a specific place in the code, while adding additional documentation to the project. I use a couple of different markers to denote different types of to...</description>

  20. <title>Namespace Preferences Added to the YUI Bundle</title>

  23. <description>
  24. The YUI bundle for TextMate has been updated for the 2.2.0 release, with support added for the DataTable, Button, History, Element, and DataSource libraries. The most interesting thing about this update, though, is the support for using your own variables in place of the long style namespaces. To edit these, go to the Bundle Editor and select Namespace Preferences under the JavaScript YUI bundle. You should see something like this:
  27. { shellVariables = (
  28. { name = 'BUILD';

  63. I went to the last day of the Macworld Expo yesterday, and took a whole bunch of photos. It was my first Macworld, and I was surprised at how big it was; the entire Moscone North and South buildings were totally filled.
  66. For me, the best parts were the demos that Apple was putting on. The Apple TV and OS X Leopard demos were ok, but the really good one was on the iPhone. I saw a few of these hour-long demos (since I was at the Expo for most of the day), and it was interesting to...</description>

  71. <title>Widget Support Added to YUI Bundle</title>
  72. <link></link>

  74. <description>
  78. The bundle now supports syntax coloring, tab completion and documentation lookup for all the YAHOO.widget libraries. Since there are a lot of widget classes and functions, the bundle more than tripled in size, but it should now be fairly complete. I will do my best to keep iy updated when new YUI releases come around, so make sure to update your bundles every once in a while.  
  81. Complete installation directions can be found in the YUI Bundle for Textmate post, and there is now a ...</description>

  90. Eric Miraglia was kind enough to help me make a screencast showing off some of the features of the YUI Bundle for Textmate (Thanks Eric!). It was my first attempt at making a screencast, so forgive me if there are any errors or broken features (the documentation lookup wasn't cooperating for some reason, but it should be working in the latest version of the bundle). There are direct links to the 13MB .mov file and a lower res Flash version (not recommended), and I think it appears in the YUI T...</description>

  99. It's recently been pointed out to me by a faithful reader that I have been quite the delinquent when it comes to posting to the blog....I couldn't agree more with this assessment. In an attempt to fan a buzz that will bring me back to write more (I mean, really, will people want to come to the site if even I wont?) I have written a post.
  101. At any rate, I'd like to point everyone to a really interesting post over at Bokardo by Joshua Porter. He links to an article by Tim Berners-Lee and quotes...</description>

  109. <description>
  110. I've written a bundle for TextMate that provides syntax coloring, tab completetion and documentation look-up for the core YUI libraries: Dom, Event, Connection, Drag & Drop and Animation. The easiest way to get it is documented on the TextMate site, and involves the GetBundle bundle by Sebastian Gräßl. I'll summarize it here:
  113. Download GetBundle and double-click to install it.
  114. Invoke the "Install Bundle" command. The easiest way to do this is to press ⌃⌘T and type "install". Then ...</description>

  123. I never realized how cool a language Javascript really was until I took Douglas Crockford's classes at work. He has a unique approach to the language, which he sums up as "working with the grain". Two of his classes have now been posted online in their entirety, and I highly recommend them to anyone who wants to claim to be an advanced Javascript programmer.
