Last wednesday a collegue was trying to integrate his facebook friends within a site built with Joomla. He was having problems with the code, ...and i asked him, why don't you use a module for that??.



Yeah, joomla has modules for everything, absolutely everything. I like to digg into joomlabyte where you can find from free to commercial modules for joomla. ...and here it was, the Facebook Fans Joomla Module.

Most of you have already tried the Google Docs, those web tools which allow you to use excel, word...and many more on internet, without installing any software at your PC and so being able to access your docs from any Computer or smartphone with internet access. Is google Docs alone??, ..of course not!!. No Software is ever alone...

There are 3 interesting tools which you may like to integrate in your developments!!. These are in one very good blog, a beautifull site, ..hey why not mentioning blogs other than mine, this is the basis for Open Source, ..sharing info!!

All these tools come with an outstading description as well as examples so I just link to them!!:

  • jQuery File Tree. An AJAX File Browser plugin. And just with a little line of code. Obviously we need a server-side tech to get access to the folder.. It provides conectors for PHP, ASP, ASP.NET, ColdFusion, JSP, Lasso, Perl, Python/Django and Ruby!!!
  • jQuery Context Menu Plugin. Just with a html list you can get this context menu.
  • jQuery Alert Dialogs. Aims to replace the basic functionality provided by the standard JavaScript alert(), confirm(), and prompt() functions.

VIRTUAL DESKTOPS: ICLOUD

...I ve been thinking for a while which name I should give to ICloud, a web OS??, a Collaborative tool??, another Goggle Wave??, or yes, a Virtual Desktop!! as I prefer to define it. Actually ICloud is the Desktop on top of XIOS/3, Xcerion XML Internet Operating System.

This is THE FUTURE, to have desktops on the cloud where you can share your info with friends, log for example at messenger, get your email, upload pics and documents, icloud provides you 3GB disk Space, tag your youtube and meta cafe videos, have a video and audio player, have your calendar, even play games with your friends. Iclouds have all these although still misses some features as for example spreadsheets. It comes with a word editor but it doesn't still import word files ok, in the other hand it comes with a handy file explorer!!. At any case, a video is more worthy than a 1000 words

PROTOTYPE: Protofish, Another drowpdown Menu

It is called protofish and yeap it is another MIT License Accesible Multilevel Dropdown Menu which supports most browsers (IE6+, Safari 3+, Opera 9+, Chrome, Firefox 2+). It is accesible because from a list, which all browsers and webspiders can read, it appears magically a dropdown menu, and it also includes ARIA best practices.

CAPTCHA: Don't let noone attack your forms!!

At any on our sites we will have for sure a form, either for requesting info, for suscrbing to newsletters, to buy in our store, or just to sign up, ..and there are some people out there who enjoy behave a little bad either to shutsown your server, to fill your database or just to spam those forms. The solution as you all know is to install a Captcha, "put a nice car in you live and a nice captcha in your forms".

What is a Captcha??, I assume most of you know but at any case it means: "completely automated public Turing test to tell computers and humans apart." What it means is, a program that can tell humans from machines using some type of generated test. A test most people can easily pass but a computer program cannot. Have you see them??

SCRIPT.ACOLO.US: Multilevel dropdown menu

During this week i spent a little time to start building a multilevel dropdown menu. It is in version 0.5 so it still has some BUGS, do not kill me for that!!, and of course many garbage code to erase and some commented!!.

It works in firefox, chrome and explorer 8.0, and although I haven't test it on Safari it will work almost for sure (we know how "similar" the hearts from chrome and Safari are ;)). The only issue that will not work with early versions of explorer should be the hover style over the divs, and obviously some other CSS stuff.
