Get The FREE Learning AngularJS Newsletter

Since I like using AngularJS and the current client project and the last few client projects I’ve been on use AngularJS, I realized there may be others out there who want to start learning AngularJS or enhancing their current AngularJS web apps. So I started a newsletter where we post the newest books, tutorials, articles, modules and code libraries that AngularJS developers should check out.

org-doing spotted in the wild!

Someone posted a nice blog about org-doing: http://rubikitch.com/2015/06/26/org-doing/

It’s neat, they provided their own example. It’s in Japanese but you can read the translation by selecting your language in the left sidebar. Really cool, they have some more screenshots.

This was just a small thing I hacked up based on a shell/command-line tool called doing and it makes me happy that someone else has found it useful.

How to write down your top priorities

In the past year I’ve been trying to get my system for productivity and organization done. I have read and re-read Getting Things Done and things are slowly coming together. As I mention in a previous post, I’m using ZenDone for the list of next actions and the contexts that I can do those next actions, and I’ve been using Evernote for storing all sorts of notes and more details on the things I have to get done and for organizing projects.

However, I’ve been missing something: a list of priorities for the day. This is different from a list of next actions and from calendar events; you may have to do some chores today but they aren’t a priority, you might have to go to three meetings but only one of those meetings is a priority.

The list of priorities for the day is an idea inspired by the book The One Thing. It proposes that we have to discover the one thing in life that we want to do and align everything around that. Ideally all of your priorities will be related to and aligned with the one thing that gives your life purpose and meaning.

No one wants to hear about AngularJS 2

At least judging by the stats on the Learning AngularJS newsletter (click here to check it out). The last two newsletters were about AngularJS 2 and the open and click rates were much much lower. It looks like the people subscribed want more real-world AngularJS 1.x articles and tips. It makes sense as there is a lot of AngularJS 1 code out in the wild and AngularJS 2 has only just hit the developer preview stage and won’t be out for another year.

Free/Open Source ELearning Management Systems: Moodle vs Sakai

Rudolf Olah:

Moodle and Sakai are good choices for setting up online courses and possibly for MOOCs. I’ve been looking at CoursePress, a plugin for WordPress. All solid choices and easy to get started with.

Hi, I’m Tony and I am a university student in Sweden. The university I go to uses two great free/open source products for their elearning platform and learning management system. Today I am going to talk about these products: what they are, some of their features and what strengths and bottlenecks they have.

Both are educational web-based platforms which allow students and teachers to communicate with each other on bulletin board systems, with web-based online forums. More importantly, they are places where students can hand in their assignments and have them graded by teachers.

They both offer an educational platform with similar feature sets, so in that regard they are competitors.

Moodle

Flexible in design, students and teachers can customise how pages appear by choosing from a multitude of themes. All you have to do is log in with a username and password and go change the theme in your…

Emacs angularjs-mode v1.0 release!

angularjs-mode snippetsI’ve finally had some time to upgrade angularjs-mode with some expandable code snippets (thanks to YA Snippets) and added auto-complete mode dictionaries.

What I’ve found a pain when coding AngularJS is that you really need your environment setup well for it before you can get a lot done with it. Having angularjs’s javascript files installed, a basic index.html, a Gruntfile, a Karma and Protractor configuration saves a lot of time. But even with a basic project structure, you still need to be faster when writing new controllers, directives and services. Auto-complete-mode and snippets can help with that.

All of the top-level definitions in the AngularJS API are included in the auto-complete dictionaries. The dictionary for angular-html-mode contains all the common directives.

Use Emacs and angularjs-mode for faster angularjs coding! Now with 100% more auto-complete and snippets!
