Yah same as what you get in the browser

@niloc132
though you can edit the code at least :)

yeah, I am liking VSC as well, but I'm still super dependent on eclipse. I guess I'm just an old programmer and habbits are hard to change.
I'd much rather program in c/c++ than flutter/dart
but it's really hard to make web apps in c++
played a bit with QT web asm, but that's it's own headache

Everything has pros and cons... but for an ide i am very sold into intellij after so many years on eclipse ..I dont think I will use eclipse anymore unless forced to
howudodat
@howudodat
just curious why you like intellij better than eclipse? (I probably wont switch, but I'd love to know)
Colin Alworth
@niloc132
at least ~8 years ago when I switched, it handled big projects better, and refactoring tools were unbelievably better
better integration with either maven or gradle too
howudodat
@howudodat
interesting thx for the comments

Intellij also with different flavors and setup provide a single experience for many languages.

@niloc132
SQL debugging is amazing in paid intellij, though I havent done SQL in some time
connect it to your DB and it will autocomplete table names, suggest joins, etc
howudodat
@howudodat

my primary programming is all internal to our company and is in c/c++/java/php with codenameone as a framework and now domino. I have lost count of total code lines.
but i have several hobby projects that I'm slowly moving to domino

I use eclipse so far for everything. does nice with c/c++/java even php. codenameone was integrated. there is even a sql browser, but I use dBeaver for db stuff, it is absolutely amazing. funny thing is that it uses eclipse underneath.

Always trying to learn, but sometimes I find i take the path of least resistance too much

I understand .. and I love the part that says you are moving to domino. 😄
howudodat
@howudodat
I haven't picked up the whole MVP framework of domino, but for my apps, I'm not sure I need it. I'm liking it so far, but my head hurts and my wall has dents in it from trying to get layouts right :)
Ahmad K. Bawaneh
@vegegoku:matrix.org
[m]
Getting layouts right is a pain in what ever tool we use .. but I think a good html/css knowledge is still needed to get them right
howudodat
@howudodat
good html/css knowledge <<<<<<<<< and voila my problem. programming since 1983 and it's all I can do to write <html></html> and get it right....lol...no..C(rying)OL
I cane barely spell C S S

I didnt learn css or html until i did domino
Ahmad K. Bawaneh
@vegegoku
@howudodat I think it might be a good idea to file some issues for those layouts or at least some github discussions WDYT?
Colin Alworth
@niloc132
css is far easier to learn than it used to be, esp if you're just worrying about positioning and sizing
there are a lot of flexbox tutorials out there that let you interactively poke different features and see what it does to the containers and their relative positions and sizes
Ahmad K. Bawaneh
@vegegoku
Colin Alworth
@niloc132
like that, but ideally also assigning pixel or percentage sizes to children (and container, but container should be drag and drop to resize imho, or possibly a toggle to animate as it grows and shrinks)
Ahmad K. Bawaneh
@vegegoku
Also I think we split it into 2 section while there should be only one
Colin Alworth
@niloc132
maybe some presets
Ahmad K. Bawaneh
@vegegoku
yah good idea
Colin Alworth
@niloc132
i know @jhickman has fallen in love with grid too, which i understand to be harder to use (and i havent learned it myself)
Ahmad K. Bawaneh
@vegegoku
grids are more flexible ..i found it hard to put them into a generic component because there is a limitless options and variations
so the best thing is just to learn how to do them with css, but they are very powerful
Justin Hickman
@jhickman
i wrote a component with it. i think it worked out well
Colin Alworth
@niloc132
i think it comes down to a philosophical point, do you want to make "lego blocks" that only go together a certain way, but do the work for you, or more granular components (which you seem to have chosen so far) that can be powered by any css you can imagine
but giving tools like that flex-layout page help to learn, build your own pieces
Ahmad K. Bawaneh
@vegegoku
I use flex a lot which is easy and does the job ... for grids ..you understand the one thing you want to achieve and you build the grid for it..right?
I mean writing a component that uses grid is easy.. writing a grid component that can fit any usecase is hard
Justin Hickman
@jhickman
maybe. Mine is very general. You can set properties on the layout itself ,such as columnGap, rowGap, etc. and when adding children, you include a "GridLayoutData"
public void add(IsWidget, GridLayoutData layoutData) {
Ahmad K. Bawaneh
@vegegoku
what is the GridLayoutData?
Justin Hickman
@jhickman
the GridLayoutData is responsible for applying the individual properties
mainly a bean. It has properties such as 'columnStart', columnEnd, rowStart, rowend, area, justifySelf, alignSelf, etc

Then you have it "apply".
It works for my use case
Ahmad K. Bawaneh
@vegegoku
when I look at MDN docs I see in addition to the grid I see that those also need to be supported in such a coomponent
grid-auto-columns
grid-auto-flow
grid-auto-rows
grid-template-areas
grid-template-columns
grid-template-rows
Justin Hickman
@jhickman
yep
Ahmad K. Bawaneh
@vegegoku
What you did is actually what we do for the Rows and columns in domino, Rows and columns in domino are grids underneath
except for IE11 they fallback to old school float
but this is just a small fraction to what grids can do
Justin Hickman
@jhickman
yeah. I didn't bother with any IE support
