Domain Specific Languages in Ruby

Tagged with: — ondrej at 10:09 pm on Sunday, March 22, 2009

It is probably every developer’s dream to create a programming language. It is a complex and difficult task, so it will remain just an unfulfilled dream for many.
But there is a chance to create something simpler - a domain specific language (DSL). A language, that covers a specific (and limited) domain.
Ruby helps here a lot - to create a DSL is really simple and easy.

Accessing Mac OS X harddrive from Ubuntu in VirtualBox via shared folders

Tagged with: — ondrej at 12:25 am on Sunday, March 8, 2009

I installed Ubuntu in a VirtualBox machine on OS X (pretty easy and straightforward), but to access a Mac harddrive from Ubuntu was slightly more complicated.

JSSh (Firefox 3.0) with Optional Port Number

Tagged with: — ondrej at 8:15 pm on Sunday, November 9, 2008

One of the ways how to remotely control Firefox is to use the JSSh (JavaScript Shell) plug-in. To successfully install the plug-in, it is necessary to find a suitable version for your Firefox version (1.x, 2.x, 3.x) and platform (Linux, Mac, Win). That is sometimes not so trivial…

Additionally there is a limitation in the plug-in: its communication port number cannot be (easily) changed, so it is not possible to start more JSSh (and Firefox) instances.

First, the actual status is described, later a new version of the JSSh plug-in is provided with examples.
