2015 has been one bumby ride, which I am gladly leaving behind for what is coming :)

Even though routine is always part of my work, I really had a lot of fun and engaging projects this year. Clients come and go, but I enjoy those that stick around to build something more.

I am looking forward to new projects, new puzzles to solve, connections that inspire and new things to learn in 2016. We all aspire to do what we really love to do. Thanks goes out to those this year, that showed me that this is still possible and that believing in people is still something to live by.

Some people will never learn and those were the bumby parts ;) You loose a little and still can win big :)

Enjoy your off time with your family and friends.

MERRY CHRISTMAS

“The Pi-hole can block ads for all devices on your network. All you need is a Raspberry Pi connected to your router. It was inspired as a low-cost, open source alternative to the AdTrap. The Pi-hole works on the the B, B+ and Pi 2.”

Will be a nice reuse for one of my older Rasberry Pis …

We are getting closer to Boostrap 4 and I really love what we are getting with the first alpha version.

  1. Improved grid system
  2. Opt-in flexbox support is here. Nice.
  3. Dropped wells, thumbnails, and panels for cards.
  4. Consolidated all our HTML resets into a new module, Reboot. Much cleaner.
  5. Dropped IE8 support and moved to rem and em units. Finally REM units and IE8 free. I know there will be still projects with IE8 requirements, but the amount of projects is getting less and less :)
  6. Improved auto-placement of tooltips and popovers. They are using Tether, have been using that for projects for some time now. GREAT!

A couple of interesting links for the PCTV Broadway HD S2

The PCTV Broadway HD-S2 is currently my favorite network sat receiver. It is tightly integrated into many of our network clients.

As the PCTV Broadway HD-S2 provides a nice and clean REST Api, I decided to start writing a small desktop client to access the streams and recordings (My main focus is Mac OSX / Linux for now). Sure, you can use VLC for that or just use the web interface, but I wanted something more customizable .

The Broadway PHP Api is working nicely and I am tempted to integrate the same functionality into the desktop client  :)

Basic functionality working so far:

  • Auto-discover Broadway on the network (which is more of a hack, but works nicely)
  • Check stream availability
  • Channel listing
  • Working on a channel preview grid
  • Select favorites
  • Watch live streams
  • EPG now and upcoming  ….soon ;)

Cheers
Alex
