Creating a simple state CRUD REST Service using NodeRed on Bluemix

This is my first article and video in my BlueMix series. BlueMix is an amazing platform where you can get a highly scalable solution up and running very quickly.

Simulate a mouse click using Dojo with Larry

The next video in the Dojo series where I go through animating a mouse click with Dojo. The key functions used are the Dojo query and fx.animateProperty functions. Larry was pretty talkative in this one, he even answered me a couple of times. Click here for the JSFiddle

Simulate moving a cursor in Dojo with Larry

Larry is definitely settling in on the perch with the green screen. I always have snacks in his bowls and he hasn't touched them much. I guess he decided to sit by and snack while we record.

Simulate typing text using Dojo with Larry

Animating a Cursor with jQuery and JSON

A followup to the last video, I take the same concepts as before but now I generalize the steps into a JSON array. The JSFiddle code then executes those actions in the array. In the code I show how to use a recursive function with the window.setTimeout call and ending the animation once the entire array... Continue Reading →

Animating a Cursor with jQuery

This allows you to instrument tutorials within your web applications. Stay tuned for more on that! You can see the JSFiddle code below: Click here... Continue Reading →
