This tutorial is going to walk you through creating your own backup cloud program. The concept and script are very simple, using Amazon Web Service and the S3Tools command line program, we are going to create a script that syncs files to our Amazon S3 bucket, allowing us to create our own backup cloud program. We'll show you how to write the script and create the schedule task using iCal and AppleScript.
This screencast was created in response to a request from one of our Pinehead.tv viewers, and shows you how to create an extremely simple form that is driven by Ajax and PHP. We create an email and name field and pass the values of those inputs into a PHP file when a certain div tag is clicked. By using Ajax we are able to submit the form and send an email without the end user ever having to reload a webpage.
This screencast is the second part of our jQuery Mobile forms example. We are going to pull in the main elements from the jQuery Mobile documentation and build a working form. We will pass the data from the jQuery Mobile form page to the result page and display the results with PHP. The source is available via the "download" link and also on Git Hub.
When first setting up an Amazon EC2 server, you receive an ssh key to connect to the instance. This article details how to use a PuTTY private key to connect to your Amazon EC2 Linux instance. Previously, we used ssh on the OS X terminal and our .pem key file in order to connect. However, that didn't work for our Windows users because .pem files are used with ssl (openssl). We will show you how to download all the PuTTY tools needed, create your private key, connect to your instance. We will also show you how to connect to your instance without an SSH key. The video included shows the practical application of the information written in the article below.
In part 3 of the screencast we are going to date our "description" data from the XML RSS feed and pass it into a new window, by adding an event listener that creates a new window on row click. We are going to make our table and RSS feed actually do something!
This screencast will walk you through creating a database, implementing it in your PHP script and using it in an application. SQLite is the most widely deployed SQL database engine in the world, and used in common web and mobile applications where simple SQL functions are needed. It allows you to use those functions without having to run a resource heavy database server especially for smaller low scale applications.
Recently I've been getting a lot of questions about where to get the iOS simulator that is used in our screencasts. In this quick written tutorial you will learn how to download the iOS simulator, where it is stored on your computer, and how it works. It's important to note that this only works on OSX computers. Windows simulators probably don't have the same abilities as the native OSX simulator.
