Response to Nodejitsu NPM Trademark
View gist:9242748

I've known people at nodejitsu for years, since before the company even existed. I still consider many of them friends. That said, somebody over there has lost their mind.

Trademarks are an important part of open source. They protect the integrity of the trust that is built by any project. A classic example of why this is the case is Firefox. Suppose that a malware producer takes the Firefox codebase, which is free and open source, packages up their malware with it and then releases it as "Firefox". Then they buy search advertising and suddenly their bad and malicious version of Firefox is the first result on search engines across the web. This is clearly a bad thing for Firefox and open source everywhere, but what can Mozilla do to protect their community of users?

They can't enforce a software license since the use is permitted under the Mozilla Public License. They can, however, enforce on these hypothetical bad actors using their trademark on the word "Fi

Better local require() paths for Node.js

Better local require() paths for Node.js


When the directory structure of your Node.js application (not library!) has some depth, you end up with a lot of annoying relative paths in your require calls like:

const Article = require('../../../../app/models/article');

Those suck for maintenance and they're ugly.

What is node.js?

Node.js is just JavaScript running on the server side. That's it. That's all there is to it.

collection-json extension template options

Template Options

Support template data options by adding property attribute with an array of text and values. Additionally add a multiple property, which indicates multiple values are suppored if set to "true".

  1. Add an optional property to the data object: options (array of objects. text/value pair)

    • the "text" property would indicate the text to be displayed in client.
    • the "value" property would indicate the value associated with the text above. This is the what the client should return to to the API in a POST or PUT request.
  2. Add an optional property to the data object: multiple (boolean).

Android Auto-Versioning w/ Git

It is common practice to make the android:versionCode in the AndroidManifest.xml the build number of the application. An easy build number to calculate is the number of git commits in the repo.

Instead of having to edit the manifest file manually and update the android:versionCode attribute with the build number, below is a git pre-commit hook that does it for you.

#!/usr/bin/env bash
