Example Yahoo Weather YQL to fetch forecasts and render with JQuery
After writing that Yahoo! has restored it's Weather API to public access I had a number of people asking me for example code so here's an example that uses the new YQL enabled API to fetch the weather and renders the results using jQuery.

Yahoo returns its Weather API to public access, switches to YQL for query
Not long ago I wrote that Yahoo effectively shut down its Weather API by forcing OAuth 1.0. After what seems like an uproar by many developers Yahoo reversed it's decision (in a way) and re-enabled public access to the Weather API, but there is a catch. You have to use the new YQL way of fetching data and it seems very slow to respond.

Adding GitLab Commits to a DokuWiki page (a very rough plugin)
I was surprised to find that there hasn't been a plugin created to show all of the commits from the GitLab Git commit page in DokuWiki, so I went about creating my own. The plugin is very rough and hardcodes a lot of things, but it gets the job done.

Development with App Engine, Bootstrap, JSON and a bit of JavaScript
I've been using JSON-RPC quite a bit lately and I wanted to have a way of calling my service without writing any special proxy code or using additional libraries, so I've put together a GAE App that uses Twitter Bootstrap for the UI and the json2.js to parse the JSON that's received using the XMLHttpRequest object. It was so quick and easy and the results look quite good.

JSON-RPC and Java collections do not play nice
I've been using the JSON-RPC library for some time now to write the server for my game, thus far I've only had a need to transport simple objects back to the client, but recently I've had a need send a collection of objects back. This is where I found that JSON-RPC falls short if you try to use the standard Java collections.

A simple JSON-RPC server with Google AppEngine
I've started exploring the use of Google AppEngine for a project I'm working on. JSON was one of the technologies that was going to be used and JSON-RPC looked like an attractive way of exposing functionality without writing your own server network code.

JSONPad 1.3.5 Review
I've started working with JSON recently to define the metadata that my application is going to be using and I needed a good JSON editor for this. I've gone through a few options, but JSONPad was the one that checked all of the boxes, however it does have some minor issues.
