I am starting a new series of blog posts here about websocket technology and show you how you can use this wonderful technology in your XPage applications. First, I’ll guide you through the installation of the xocket.io plugin on your domino server. Then we’ll secure the server by adding a special WebSocket user and TLS. Later I’ll show you how to build simple WebSocket XPage applications in Domino Designer. I hope you’ll find this series useful and more people will begin using Mark Ambler’s great plugin.
Recently, I have purchased a popular Bootstrap admin theme, called SmartAdmin Responsive WebApp. I wanted to see if I can implement this theme in Xpages. Here is the result.
Sometimes, it would be nice to add some text in the middle of a Bootstrap navbar. However, Bootstrap does not come with a navbar-center class. I’ll show you how to supplement the navbar with a custom class to achive this goal.
I have created a rather long (27 min) screencast video about how to set your Domino Designer up to work with css preprocessors. I give a really short tutorial about Sass, then I create a simple XPage application that uses Sass for its styling.
