I am excited to announce that I will be giving a workshop on Monday evening at the upcoming UXPA conference entitled: “Rapid HTML prototyping with Bootstrap”. Registration for the conference is not open yet, but there are only 10 slots available. I am really looking forward to leading this workshop. Hope to see you there!

Recently I have been doing more mobile development with the Ionic Framework as my ui framework of choice. Developing with Ionic has been a lot of fun, but since it is based in part on AngularJS, it leverages a variety of custom directives. So, I found myself keep the docs open in a separate browser window while I was coding. Since I had written a code hinting module for jQuery Mobile, I decided to do the same for Ionic!
Note: This extension is only does code hinting. There are several other extensions that provide access to the Ionic CLI.
To install the extension simply:
- Install Brackets 1.0 or later.
- In Brackets, click the menu item File > Extension Manager…
- Go to the “Available” tab of the dialog that appears.
- Type “ionic code hinter” in the search box.
- Click the “Install” button in the search result for Ionic Code Hinter.
Let me know if you have any issues or comments. Happy coding!
If you were not aware, the PhoneGap CLI got a major overhaul recently. You can read about it on the PhoneGap blog. To assist other PhoneGap developers keep all the commands straight, I put together a simple cheat sheet that you can download and post up on you wall. Enjoy!
Congrats to the entire team in reaching this milestone! I love using Brackets as my day to day editor. If you have not tried it out, go grab it and give it a spin. Download it for free at: http://brackets.io/
My third lynda.com title has been released! This time I am presenting on “Multidevice Prototyping with Ratchet“. Here is the course description:
If you are wondering what Ratchet is, it is mobile framework from the folks who brought you Bootstrap. :) If you are a lynda.com subscriber, please check it out. If you are not, sign up for the free trial.
My latest title on lynda.com has been released! It is Building Mobile Apps with the PhoneGap Command-Line Interface. Here is the description of the course:
PhoneGap’s command-line interface is a great way to build mobile apps, whether you want to use it to initialize new projects or take apps all the way through testing. In this course Chris Griffith offers a thorough overview of building, emulating, and deploying Android and iOS apps with this powerful tool. He’ll show you how to configure your development environment, and create brand-new projects with the PhoneGap CLI as well as the Apache Cordova CLI (the framework PhoneGap is built on). Then he’ll demonstrate how to test your app, customize and extend the platform to suit your workflow, and compile your app with PhoneGap Developer or PhoneGap Build. Start watching and learn how to kick-start your apps from the command line now with the PhoneGap CLI.
It was a lot of fun recording this title. Hope you enjoy it!
