A few OnePlus One CyanogenMod tips

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/12/19

Some settings I applied to match my Nexus 4 setup on my OnePlus Oe 64 Gb:

I’m still hesitating about the home and work profiles mentioned at Without these 9 changes, your OnePlus One sucks | THE CORNERPLAY.

I copied the apps and settings from my old Nexus 4 to my new OnePlus One. Not everything transferred at once:

  • About a dozen apps didn’t get intalled, including AirBnB,
  • The identities of some applications did transfer
    • like ABN AMRO Bankieren, Tweetcaster, Firechat, Whatsapp, DropBox
  • While others didn’t
    • like Google, ING Banking, Twitter, Endomondo, WordPress, Facebook, LinkedIn, Pushbullet

Interesting app to read your fare and balance from NFC cards: FareBot – Android Apps on Google Play

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/12/19

I need to put a bit more research in this, as it is cannot read OV Chipkaart fare/balance out of the box: it needs some encryption information from that card.

FareBot by CodeButler is open source, and it might even be possible to write information to the fare cards.

Embarcadero is working on two 64bit iOS compilers – via: Just got another reminder from Apple about 64 bit IOS requirements

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/12/18

Interesting comment by Marco Cantu:

R&D at Embarcadero is working on a 64bit iOS compiler, oh well actually 2 of them, also C++. We’ll support 64bit and “universal binaries” (bundling both 32 and 64 bit binaries) requested by Apple.The Feb 1st requirement is only for new apps, not for updating existing ones, but still we are trying to make a solution available by that time.The roadmap describes the entire year, more than the individual release. This time around we are trying to have it public by January, covering what we expect to deliver in 2015.

Delphi and MVVM: the demo by Malcolm Groves

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/12/17

A small follow up on MVVM, MVP, MVC, OOD, etc: it is all about structure and using common sense:

When you want to do MVVM with Delphi, there is a great Delphi MVVM demo that Malcolm Groves gave at CodeRage 7 that is on YouTube.

A few resources you should look at after viewing that demo:

Some of it might work with Delphi XE2, but I think you need XE3 or younger for most of the demos.

.NET: case insensitive string replace without using RegEx (via: Stack Overflow)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/12/16

Two ways to do a case insensitive string replace without using RegEx (which often is not a solution).

Thanks User Tim Schmelter for pointing me at those.


via: Is there a case insensitive string replace in .Net without using Regex? – Stack Overflow.
