Looking at the Polymer app-layout elements I have to say these are pretty cool! Some of it is old news because it was/is supported via the paper-drawer-panel, paper-header and paper-toolbar elements. However by taking the lessons learned with those elements and creating their “app” siblings I think it makes for a much nicer implementation. The basic use of the app-layout elements would look something like this: <app-drawer-layout id=”layout” narrow=”{{drawerClosed}}” fullbleed> <!– Drawer content –> <app-drawer id=”drawer”> <app-toolbar> <a href=”/view1″ top-item> <img src=”../images/Logo.png” /> </a> </app-toolbar> <div class=”drawerContent content”> <!– drawer content goes here –> </div> </app-drawer> <!– Main content –> <app-header-layout> <app-header scroll-target=”content”> <app-toolbar> <paper-icon-button icon=”menu” drawer-toggle></paper-icon-button> <div class=”flex” title>[[contentTitle]]</div> <paper-icon-button icon=”search” on-tap=”openSearch”></paper-icon-button>

When developing modern web applications, we want to build components that are re-usable. The more reusable it is, the better. When things are re-usable we get a lot of benefits going forward with future applications, mainly speed of development. But we also get the ability to update a component in one place and the next update to any app that uses that component, we just get the new version. One thing that is pretty popular in Domino apps and some modern web apps is a picker. A list of items on the left which you select from, then move the things which are selected into another list on the right. With

For about the last 6 to 8 months I’ve been doing a lot of development using Polymer Web Components. I started with the 0.5 developer release version. My experience so far has been a little bitter sweet.  Using version 0.5 I had to jump quite a few hoops to get things working, but once I figured out the patterns all was well with the world. In the Beginning I had chosen to use Backbone Marionette for the MVC architecture for my apps. I already knew Marionette so I felt the logical choice was to stay productive and just use what I already knew and use the web components in my templates. If I

Welcome to keithstric.me. The new home of my blog. Due to my inaction I ended up loosing keithstric.com. I was able to move the past 10 years worth of blog posts here, but I’m still missing the first 4 years of posts. Oh well, guess that’s what happens when you ignore a problem. But let’s get to my rant. I’m building an application using just Polymer. It’s a RESTful application so all server communication is via AJAX requests. When dealing with AJAX requests it’s fairly easy to catch an error. Error codes are communicated via a request’s “Status Code”. A successful status code is 2xx. While an error status code is 4xx

It's been a while since I've posted here so… how about an end of year recap for anyone interested. Red Pill Development changed it's name to Red Pill Now with a whole marketing campaign around it I spoke at MWLUG and ATLUG I started messing around with Polymer Web components and think this is the way web development should be done. I did a couple of training sessions on Javascript and Backbone/Marionette Red Pill hired a creative director, Bob Kadrie and is contracting with a new developer from the JSF/Web Components/Javascript world, Kito Mann Red Pill became a Microsoft partner Red Pill redefined our Graph Database to be more relevant for analytics
