Introducing Ace OSF mode

I recently introduced CodeMirror OSF mode. For an upcoming project (spoiler!) I need an editor which features live validation of OSF documents. The popular editor Ace has an easy way to implement such features. Ace OSF mode was born.


Install

This Ace mode is available once you have installed Ace in your document. Then, all you have to do is to select this mode in Ace. Somehow like this:

Ace OSF mode is released under the MIT license.

Introducing CodeMirror OSF mode

Shownotes in the context of Podcasts are a simple but suitable method to supply related information to the listener. One approach is the Open Show Notes Format which covers a few application fields.

As it name says, CodeMirror OSF mode, is a mode for CodeMirror which highlights OSF documents. The mode is thought to address people that usually write or edit Shownotes.


Install

This CodeMirror mode is available once you have included the osf.js file in your document. Then, all you have to do is to select this mode in codemirror. Somehow like this:

The official CodeMirror site features lots of information about how to use CodeMirror.

CodeMirror OSF mode is released under the MIT license.

ADNCC API Version 0.7b

This post only describes changes compared to ADNCC API Version 0.6b. Further details can be found here. Additionally a first version of the promised search engine is out and can be found here.

Changes

There were several changes made for this version, so here is the most important one: no filters will be ignored randomly anymore. This means the API can now be used with so many filters as needed.

ADNCC API Version 0.6b

A new Version of the API (0.7b) is available here.

Description

The ADN-client-comparison (ADNCC) API enhances the „ADN-Client Feature Matrix“ by @nhk in order to offer an API, which makes information about the clients accessible, in a different way then the original Spreadsheet. In detail, The data is pulled from the original spreadsheet and released as an JSON object. This data then can be used in any way.

Features

Beside pulling the whole data, the pull request can be modified. For instance if you would like to pull information about a certain client only, you can limit the number of results by adding the clients name to the URL:

http://adn-client-comparison.nigma.de/pull.php?name=Felix

Another example would be that you only want to fetch all android clients. This could be realized by calling:

http://adn-client-comparison.nigma.de/pull.php?platform=Android

Indeed, this concept assigned to every key available in the data (e.g. stream_marker_support, interactions_view etc.).

Known Issues

As the API is in beta phase there are several things that need to be fixed, or are not as solid as they should be. It is known that if applying more than two filters, in some cases filters will be ignored randomly. However, the data obtained if using two or no filters worked fine for all performed tests.

Future development

In the near future it is planned use this API in order to build a website, which suggests suitable clients for the user, based on several choosable filters and criteria. It is not known yet if the API filter-options are further developed, because this strongly depends on if it is necessary to build the mentioned website.

Implementation

PHP is known to decode and encode JSON to and from arrays. An example would be:

The database contains <?php echo count(json_decode(file_get_contents("http://adn-client-comparison.nigma.de/pull.php"))); ?> entries.

Which would result in: The database contains 58 entries.

As the results of the request are in JSON-Format no further explanation for JavaScript-implementation should be needed ;-)
