Tagalag – Tag email addressess

Tagalag – Tag email addressess

This is so similar to kind of what we were wanting to do with Repuserve it’s not funny. Well, it is funny. Actually, I’d have to say, major props to the Tagalag crew for coding this up. Really really nice.

Tagalag

Tagalag lets you tag email addresses. You can see what others have tagged you as and remove tags if they are inappropriate.

So, now you can tag me (in the sidebar). Pretty cool.

TipMonkies – Web-based IM client roundup

TipMonkies – Web-based IM client roundup

Nice round-up of web-based IM clients.

TipMonkies – Blog Archive – Web-based IM client roundup

A few days ago I wrote about Meebo and people took an interest to the web-based IM client, so I decided to do a quick roundup of the available clients. You should have a somewhat modern browser for these to work (IE 5.5, Netscape 7.1, Mozilla 1.0 or higher) but that shouldn’t be a hurdle for anyone. If you can’t install an IM application at work or school, then these web-based solutions should get you your IM fix. This list is by no means definitive, particularly when it comes to Jabber clients, of which there are many, but covers some of the more popular solutions. I’ve decided to exclude any commercial (read: not free) solutions, or those that require you to run them on your own server. Read on for more information!

HOWTO: Add debug statements to your javascript code

HOWTO: Add debug statements to your javascript code

Find yourself inserting alert() calls throughout your javascript to debug your code? Wondering how to efficiently add debug statements that you don’t have to turn on and off all the time by commenting them out individually?

I finally decided to write this simple bit of code that allows you to place debug statements throughout your javascript. Hopefully you’ll find it helpful.

  1. Place this code somewhere in your javascript (I put mine at the top so it’s easy to find.)

    // Turn debugging messages on? ["true"|""]
    var debug = "";

  2. Wherever you want a debug statement to pop up (my prefered method in javascript), simply add this line of code:

    (debug) ? alert('DEBUG (insert helpful debug message here)') : "" ;

  3. That’s it. Now, if you set var debug = "true" you’ll get your helpful debug statements popping up all throughout your application. If you set it to null or empty they won’t pop up. Simple, eh? 🙂
WordPress Ajax inline editing plugin

WordPress Ajax inline editing plugin

Downloading this plugin right now to test. Really, really cool.

twilightuniverse.com » Blog Archive » WordPress: Touched

Current features include:

* Degradable AJAX scripting – will function as a regular edit link if JavaScript is turned off or disabled.
* Allows you to not only edit the content and title, but also the Excerpt.
* Allows you to easily turn comments and pings on or off.

Cross-posting this also on Ajax Blog.

Update: OK, so this is REALLY REALLY cool. Edit in place is the future. Editing this right now in the published interface. Could definitely use some additional polish, but really neat.

Welcome to Sajax!

Sajax is a tool to make programming websites using the Ajax framework — also known as XMLHTTPRequest or remote scripting — as easy as possible. Sajax makes it easy to call PHP functions from your webpages via JavaScript without performing a browser refresh. The toolkit does 99% of the work for you so you have no excuse to not use it.

Why is (S)Ajax a big deal?

Ajax scripting marks a dramatic shift from form-oriented web development to a more interactive, GUI-style system. Our library makes it so simple to do this that your friends will make fun of you if you don’t.

XMLHttpRequest Introduction

XMLHttpRequest is a native JavaScript object allowing further HTTP requests to be made from a page which has already loaded. It allows Microrequests to be made in response to user events in a web page, rather than requiring a complete page reload, making it possible to implement some notion of a rich client user interface, similar to desktop applications.

The API provided allows a fairly fine grained level of control over HTTP requests, allowing any request header to be set and exposes all response headers.

The original implementation came from Microsoft as an ActiveX object for IE. Mozilla followed suit and implemented XMLHttpRequest with an (almost) identical API. Konqueror (and Safari v1.2, based also on KHTML) also has an XMLHttpRequest implementation and support should be coming in Opera from v7.6x .

This resource isn’t meant as a tutorial for XMLHttpRequest but rather to gather as much information about it as possible. See the Tutorials below for getting started.
