Learning Postcards: The software stack

By Nick on Thursday, February 9th, 2017 in Client Side, Programming. No Comments

This is a short and pretty technical post. It just fills a void between researching on the needs, specifying the functions of the project, and the actual realization. I deliberately searched for the most innovative techniques for each technical need. It’s a way to challenge me to learn new tools and to be sure we […]

Upgrading a c++ Addon from node.0.10 to node.0.11

By Bruno Winck on Monday, November 9th, 2015 in NodeJS. No Comments

I started to upgrade Kneaver c++ NodeJS addons to 0.11 which implies a major change in v8 underlying engine (what Chrome is using for running javascript). It was my intention to limit my posts on programming since it’s not really the cup of tea of my audience. However, the information I share is not widely […]

Upgrades roadmap

By Bruno Winck on Sunday, October 25th, 2015 in Core, Journal, Programming. No Comments

As part of a software company work, upgrades are a never ending task. It’s a bit daunting since we have little control on the frequency of them. I tend to organize them in campaigns. It should be totally invisible from users or followers. Kind of underground work. Yet it will impact reactivity for a few […]

Extending Kneaver with NodeJS in 30 seconds

By Bruno Winck on Monday, December 8th, 2014 in Customizing, Kneaver, NodeJS, Technology. 1 Comment

This is a quick intro on how to reuse Kneaver’s features in javascript on NodeJS. We assume you installed NodeJS and basic Kneaver binaries on a machine running Windows or Linux. Once Kneaver is installed (or RSWebSrvRT for a smaller package, download here) RSNode will be installed as a global package. To start a new […]

JSON Support for Kneaver

By Bruno Winck on Monday, October 22nd, 2012 in Programming. No Comments

A slightly technical annoucement with major user impact. Twitter announced late september that they will stop supporting XML and RSS on March 2013 and exclusively use JSON. Many social network providers will likely follow this move. This means that systems like Kneaver able to access, consumme and make sense of Social Graph and Social Media […]

Binary XML and cache

By Bruno Winck on Wednesday, October 26th, 2011 in New Features, Programming. No Comments

Since KNVHTML can now be used directly from a php script comes the problem of performance. Instead of having an object allocated once for all in a session it is created on every page. It took 1 sec before. That was too long. I reviewed some discussions about optimizing wordpress before: http://www.arnebrachhold.de/2007/02/16/four-plus-one-ways-to-speed-up-the-performance-of-wordpress-with-caching/, and here http://www.prelovac.com/vladimir/optimize-wordpress-page-loading-time-with-php-speedy-and-wp-super-cache.

Using php and MySQL with Kneaver

By Bruno Winck on Thursday, October 13th, 2011 in PHP. No Comments

Tonight is my first tentative to run Kneaver directly with MySQL as database engine, and PHP as the script front end. This is the first step before being able to use Kneaver directly, inproc from WordPress. What started as an idea late this afternoon is not taking shape. Just switching from a very simple VBScript […]
