I’ve just created an online repository for a little Visual Studio addin which I’ve been working on for the last couple of days. It’s a Visual Studio integration of the Trac project management solution. You can check it out at http://vstrac.devjavu.com/.

Devjavu actually uses Trac, so if you’re not familiar with it feel free to check it out there.

If you’ve been at all interested in creating shell extensions for Vista in .NET, you’ve probably come across Mika Taulty’s The Windows Vista Shell, Thumbnails and Managed Code. One thing I just wanted to mention is that if you are working on a 64 bit version of Vista, you need to compile your shell extension in 64 bit too otherwise it will just not work. Trust me. 😉

VS2005 TortoiseSVN “integration” July 18, 2007

I just found this cool settings file which integrates commands from TortoiseSVN into VS2005. It’s not a full integration as all it uses is external tools to create the commands that you would usually swap over to Windows Explorer for, but it very, very handy. Thanks Garry!

I found this great Javascript library which creates charts using the newish canvas object in the newer browsers. Check it out at http://www.solutoire.com/plotr. It seems to support bar, line and pie charts at the moment. I’m sure more will follow.

Man am I impressed with this library! I have been doing amazing things with such small amounts of code. I was never one for javascript before, I always used to find it tedious, but this library has made it fun. Try it out.

My-BIC AJAX Framework July 2, 2006

I’ve just recently stumbled upon this framework, and it seems very interesting. It seems to put focus more on the server side code and minimal focus on the client javascript. That being said there is a nice debugger included which appears to make developing much easier. I’m definitely going to have fun with this one.

Tree Traversal April 28, 2006

I have been checking out some information for tree traversal algorithms (hence my previous post) and came upon the following articles. These are all abut the Modified PreOrder Tree Traversal (MPTT) algorithm.

After reading all these (and more) I am starting to understand it and to see how the implementation differs from the Adjacency List algorithm (the one where you have a parent_id on each child and use recursion to read). The biggest difference that there is is the fact that you don't need to use any sort of recursion to read in the data, but the inserting and updating of rows is far more involved using MPTT.

There is quite a comprehensive list of algorithms at the NIST's (National Institute of Standards and Technology) Dictionary of Algorithms and Data Structures page. Takes it's time to load though.
