Re: LEGO kit

OK, but what about something more like DropTools on steroids? I think you are kind of getting at that anyway, with the idea that one might start with the "visual" programming of blocks, Legos, etc. And then when needed or desired, slip behind the scenes and tinker with the scripts. That way you avoi...

Re: LEGO kit

There's an interesting discussion of Visual Programming Languages, primarily as tools for high level development and not as teaching aids, here:

ANN: lcLipsum

I'm pleased to announce a tiny little plugin called lcLipsum. Free to download and use (it's an unlocked stack), it copies an amount of "greek" text to the clipboard. You can set the amount of text by characters, words, sentences or lines/paragraphs. There are other options, too. It takes up an abso...

There is now a slider that lets you set the scaleFactor of a stack, and a button that let's you reset the scaleFactor to 1.0. • Experimental support for "Simul...

Samsung Remote Test Lab

I'm having some issues with an Android .apk when it's loaded on my client's Samsung Galaxy Note II. It runs just fine in the Android simulator on my desktop, and when running in the development environment. So when I found the Samsung Remote Test Lab online, http://developer.samsung.com/remotetestla...

Re: Stack Resizing Tool

Hi Lestroso, Click the Reference button in my tool, and use the arrows on the lower right to go to the second card of that reference window. You'll see a note about all the different Android sizes, and a short list of some of the most popular Android devices and their resolutions. There are thousand...

Re: Stack Resizing Tool

Thanks for the thanks! I've made an info page here: http://buchwald.ca/developer-tools/ There has been at least 1 update since I posted here originally. And I've built in update notifications, so users can be automatically notified in the future. Also, I have another little plugin there, too, called...

Re: [ANN] Free lcResTool & lcMover Plugins

Based on a user suggestion, I've updated lcMover to version 1.1.
Now you can store stack locations and recall them quickly.
Check the tooltips for extra info and help.

[ANN] Free lcResTool & lcMover Plugins

I've released a free, tiny little plugin I'm calling lcMover . It's sole task is to move your topmost window around, shoving it into the corners, or the middle edges, or the centre of your screen. It tries to avoid putting your window under the Mac menubar or the tool palette. It's handy when you ar...

I wanted to share this little plugin tool I've made and have been using. ResTool is a small palette for resizing your stack to a number of standard screen dimensions. It's handy for stacks intended for iOS, Android, or kiosks development. You can switch from portrait to landscape orientations, subtr...
