I am currently working on a project which will allow users to register their Wi-Fi enabled, non-web browser enabled, devices on the network. These are devices like printers, Apple TV, and Xbox*. One of the data points that have to be collected from the user is the device MAC address. The project customer wants that address to be properly formatted when they see it in the support ticket.
We have several options. We can format the address either on the back-end after the form has been submitted. Or we can format it on the front end via a separate text field for each character pair, but that is too many fields to handle. A better solution is to use a single field and format the user input at the time of input or upon submit. In those cases, the former is better because the data will already be formatted when the overall form input is being validation after the user clicks the “Submit” button.
We are going to format the user input as it is being provided, thus having proper data when vali…
Setting up a new site in Coda 2 and cloning a GitHub remote repository is not that big of a deal. Where you will most likely run into problems is when you try to push your changes to the GitHub remote repository. Below I will show you how to update the Git config file in your local repository so you do not run into one of the following errors: git push failed remote: Remote anonymous access to repository deniedgit push origin master Username: fatal: Could not read passwordThe GitHub repository address I am going to use is that of Source Code DNA: https://github.com/thetitan/sourcecodedna.git. I will assume that you have already setup your Coda 2 site profile and cloned your repository, you have made some changes, and now you are ready to push those changes to your projects GitHub repo.
WiFi mesh routers are the “new” hottest set of tech gadgets to have. WiFi mesh networks allow for multiple access point in the same structure, e.g. your house, to provide proper WiFi network coverage, eliminating low signal or dead zones. What really captured my attention was the Google WiFi mesh routers. They are beautiful and I look forward to having a set of them in my home. Before them and for lack of interest, the term WiFi Mesh Network was pretty vaguely defined in my mind. But as it happens, I have been utilizing the concept of WiFi mesh networking in my house for years, just under a different name.
Apple has offered mesh networking for years on the AirPort Routers, but no one noticed! It just used technical terms like Wirelessly Extended Network and Wireless Distribution System. Not as easy to roll off the thong as “mesh network”. I guess no marketing staff were involved since it wasn’t also pushed as a selling feature.
Now that Apple is exiting the router market, whilst othe…
