Text Formatting Notation Help – Atlassian JIRA

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/05/02

Too bad Atlassian don’t specify that the {code} tag now supports more languages.

The trick is to specify an invalid one (like JSON, for which you can use javascript), then it emits an error telling you which languages are supported:

 

Available languages are: javascript, sql, xhtml, actionscript, none, html, xml, java

(Yes I know there is a JIRA MarkDown plugin, but not every customer installs plugins at will)

Interesting thread on IP geolocation and providers (via: Dan Sohad – Google+)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/05/02

IP geolocation is hard, and very dependent on where you are in the world. Providers giving different or confusing results are not exceptional.

See the struggle at Dan Sohad – Google+ – Hi! I working in a IP locate app. I’m using as “motors”: … where Dan Sohad tries a Delphi implementation.
