DataTables Helper Module Creation

I’ve been adventuring, not for the first time, into the world of Datatables. I’ve worked with this library in the past and, through recent work, ended up deciding it was high time I put together a small, re-usable utility module. There were a number of underlying use cases to cover: The module needed to configure […]

Zoning out with Moment Timezone

I’ve recently been heavily embedded in implementing time zone sensitivity into a web application and I thought I’d share my first experiences on handling this from the perspective of the browser. A great little library for handling this kind of tricky number can be found in the form of Moment Timezone, which sits proudly beside […]

Groovy JavaScript Regex Name Capitalisation Handling

Greetings! A tidbit found by a friend of mine online, forming the basis for a small piece of work I’ve done this week surrounding name capitalisation.

I’ve had a couple of requirements to gracefully show/hide and adjust web page layouts based on screen sizes (and screen re-sizing). I came across the following solution which works pretty damn well.

Back Online: Normal Service Resumed

I’m back from my hiatus which encompassed getting married, eating far too much food and drinking wine and beer on the wonderful Adriatic coast. It’s time to get back to some serious coding and perhaps reconsider the longer term plans for this blog. To start us off, I’ve been contemplating pushing a little money into […]
