The JHipster Mini-Book The JHipster Mini-Book is a guide to getting started with hip technologies today: Angular, Bootstrap, and Spring Boot. All of these frameworks are wrapped up in an easy-to-use project called JHipster.

This book shows you how to build an app with JHipster, and guides you through the plethora of tools, techniques and options you can use. Furthermore, it explains the UI and API building blocks so you understand the underpinnings of your great application.

Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

Roller Bugs?

I'm encountering the following bugs with Roller's - once I make sure I can reproduce them with the latest build, and the "x2" theme, I'll enter them as bugs (then hopefully fix them).

  • News items - newsfeed.vm has some issues and won't render newsfeeds correctly. I seem to be the only one using these, but I believe a fix is still in order. This is only a bug with the new velocimacros. I had it working yesterday, and then Dave updated weblog.vm and website.vm, and now it's broken again. I reverted my newsfeeds back to the old $macros.showAllNewsfeeds.
  • Linkback - I can get linkback to work, but I can't get it to display after each day - it only shows up at the bottom of all my entries. It might be an HTML issues - I'll have to validate this site as XHTML and do a bit of cleanup to confirm this is actually a bug.
  • Joe Hewitt comments - I have the display working, but posting doesn't. Actually, the post works, but the redisplay doesn't. I'll have to post a few comments on Joe's blog to verify that his comments system works like I expect it to. Maybe I should check-in what I have working and someone else can hack around with it?

I doubt I'll get to verifying/fixing these for a few days. Today is our 3 year anniversary, tomorrow will be another ride-home-day/late arrival (last night I got home at 8:00) and Thursday night I'm going to the Jimmy Buffett concert. As for today being our anniversary - it's been an awesome 5 years since I met Julie - getting married to her was the best decision I ever made, and having Abbie was the best decision we ever made. Life just keeps getting better, what luck!
