So, I saw this blog (https://blog.nativescript.org/nativescript-ios-security/index.html) article today, and was thinking awesome someone is actually talking about security in NativeScript apps... My elation was very short lived. Shortly, after starting to read it, I'm like, oh my G*D! Bad security advice is way worse than no security advice! At least the other insecure plugin NativeScript/Secure-Storage… Continue reading Another pointless NativeScript Security Plugin....
For those who use Linux with a Gui, you may be like me and haven't found a good way to create .desktop files for any new applications you downloaded. I googled and tried many stackoverflow posts, and found Alacarte which allows you to edit menu items and re-org your menu. But never found anything that… Continue reading Quickly adding .desktop menu files
I was talking to a community member about some of the sites I run (and I mentioned a site called https://AppProtection.net) as they didn't realize I also do a lot of server side work. However, she was shocked that the source code for her app was easily accessible by everyone. If you write an application… Continue reading PSA: Your Android and iOS Application is not secure...
For those who may or may not know me, I was one of the very earliest NativeScript developers. Started the Facebook and Google groups NativeScript forums. Created some of the very first plugins, helped train a wide number of early NativeScript developers, wrote books, and have some of the most widely used plugins in the… Continue reading Fond memories, and onto new adventures....
Been a while since I posted; but I figured I need to get a post out on this one. There was a lot of cool things that went into NS 8. The best item is that overall your code in NS 7 should work as-is in NS 8. There are a couple minor exceptions. 1.… Continue reading NativeScript 8 Released
Sometimes I REALLY love NativeScript. So I have a really hard time tracking my time. Tested multiple time tracking apps over the years and still have many issues with all of them. Always been a real pita for me. So about a year ago I wrote a very simple NS time tracking app which works… Continue reading Awesome NativeScript
So since this question has come up multiple times; I decided to write a brief history of my involvement with NativeScript, Master Technology, ProPlugins, LLC and nStudio, LLC. So this story begins a little over 5 years ago; I had been doing some Cordova/Phonegap development on a simple application for my wife; and its performance… Continue reading NativeScript, Master Technology, ProPlugins, and nStudio.
So I mentioned something on my interview with Alex of NativeScripting.com that he did with me. And someone asked about this in the comments, so I decided to create a blog article on this specific optimization tip. I am going to code this to a browser rather than in NativeScript because well JS in a… Continue reading Optimization Gotcha's for for/i and forEach
I've had a lot of bad experiences with companies over the years; but this one takes the cake (The cake is a lie!) for me, in how not to treat a customer (let alone a developer in your ecosystem). For those who don't know who I am, I have written somewhere around a 100 plugins… Continue reading Oculus and their horrible support policy, a tale of woe!
I use a privately hosting Gitlab's instance for a bazillion projects; and have a lot of users from around the world. Unfortunately, I have ran into a long standing bug that has never been fixed in many years. It only crops up occasionally now, but it is still a major pain for everyone involved. Many,… Continue reading GitLab Verified Email account issue
