Android: Loaders versus AsyncTask One of the biggest pieces of Android that I have neglected to learn about would be Loaders. Seeing as it’s time for me to learn it, perhaps I can help you out a bit with it as well. My main interest with the Loader concept is how it melds with the tried and true AsyncTask, and if it’s really better or not. AsyncTask Before getting into the Loader concept, it’s important to have a good idea of what the AsyncTask is and what it’s used for within Android. If you have written any sort of application for Android, chances are you have played with the AsyncTask, or at the very least heard of it.

The Wonderful Duo — Using Meteor and AngularJS Together Now, we talk about their conflicts Here is a list of things that I found Meteor and AngularJS don’t like each other about or don’t agree on: Script load order (namely, when angular.js is loaded)Bootstrapping of ngAppLoading of Angular template files, and template delimiter {{…}}Declaration and usage of Meteor collectionsCode minification Before walking through each of this list together, I want to also briefly list my solutions to the problems (and you can skip the rest if you don’t care for technical details): An approach to use jQuery Plugins with AngularJS Lets face it, we can not completely get rid of jQuery and its plugins ecosystem, even though Angular has a built-in subset of jQuery under the name jQLite. At one point or another, we often need some sort of jQuery plugins in our application and we can/should not port entire plugin into Angular world in order to use it but we can avoid the plugin initialization code to be scattered across. How? Simply by writing a directive for it. I would like to give you a small demo of Toolbar.js which is a jquery plugin I found recently on This is how we create a tooltip style toolbar in jQuery:

Jose Jesus Perez Aguinaga : AngularJS: Scroll Animations Everyone has seen scroll based animations right? You know, the ones where you start scrolling down the webpage and animations start triggering around depending on how much you have scrolled. One of my favorite examples is Let's free Congress. Now, sometimes we want to trigger an animation, but we don't want to make the entire page to rely on the scroll... maybe, just a little part of it. Asynchronous HTTP requests in Android using Volley - Arnab Chakraborty Volley is the new Swiss Army Knife of Android Developers, it provides some nice utilities which makes the networking for Android apps easier and faster. The good thing about Volley is that it abstracts away the low level details of what HTTP client library is being used under the hood and helps you focus on writing nice and clean RESTful HTTP requests. Additionally all requests in Volley are executed asynchronously on a different thread without blocking your “main thread”. What are the features that Volley provides? Important features of the Volley library:

Implement Custom Gestures — Web Fundamentals Add Event Listeners Touch events and mouse events are implemented on most mobile browsers. The event names you need to implement are touchstart, touchmove, touchend and touchcancel. For some situations, you may find that you would like to support mouse interaction as well; which you can do with the mouse events: mousedown, mousemove, and mouseup. For Windows Touch devices, you need to support Pointer Events which are a new set of events.

Angular Is Slow There was a recent post comparing AngularJS to EmberJS and one of the take aways was that AngularJS is fundamentally slower. I’d like to address that. This has nothing to do with AngularJS vs EmberJS as I think that is a boring discussion and I know nothing about EmberJS. Models in AngularJS One of the great selling points of AngularJS is that the model is just a plain javascript object.

Building a Typeahead Directive with AngularJS I am building a little project that lets the user keep a list of artists and albums and I needed a typeahead / autocomplete that would match on such things. I took inspiration from the typeahead: I am also using the api. My first thought was to wrap the Twitter Bootstrap typeahead in Angular.

AngularJS Directive Design Made Easy AngularJS directives are cool AngularJS is a web application framework that makes creating complicated web applications much simpler. One of its best features is the ability to create directives, or reusable web components. It gives you the ability to create new HTML tags and attributes, which can dynamically display content in response to data changes, as well as update the data when appropriate. They’re a big productivity booster because they let you wrap up a complicated interaction with the DOM in a nice, reusable package. Making directives is confusing at first
