+Dean Radcliffe Regarding testing mentioned around 17:56, At my work we use spacejam for unit testing Meteor packages. Spacejam recently added the --xml-out command line argument. This provides XML test results your CI server can parse (we use Jenkins).

For end-to-end tests of Meteor applications we use Nightwatch. Nightwatch provides CI-friendly XML output, too.

We don't unit test in our Meteor applications because most of our unit-testable code is in packages.

We tried Velocity a little, but we prefer automating this stuff from the command line.

We also use TravisCI to test our public/FLOSS Meteor packages. Here's an example: https://github.com/csats/meteor-mturk .

This is inevitable with non-free software. Plain text is so underrated.
 
"This presentation can’t be opened because it’s too old.
To open it, save it with Keynote ’09 first.” – I was greeted with this message today when I was about to publish few more presentations on Slideshare about Knowledge Management. The offending presentation is from 2008. I have around 20 files created in older Keynote versions. They are not the disposable kinds of presentations – you know, the ones that you prepare, project and forget about them. I like to reuse them, show when I’m talking about various subjects contained in them.

How I am supposed to access them now? “save it with Keynote ’09 first”, but how? I don’t have Keynote '09 any more on my fresh Mavericks install.

The iCloud loads the presentations without any complaint, but it can’t open them – same message. One would at least hope, that they will have conversion tools at their side, if it is too cumbersome to distribute it to users and have additional customer support overhead.

I do have an installation CD, but I don’t have a CD drive any more. I'm not buying a piece of hardware to install obsolete software from a company that can't keep compatibility just two versions backwards. 

For comparison: I can read my university presentations from 2001, my conference presentations from 2003-2004 created in Open Office. That’s more than 10 years and more than three versions ago!

I’m usually careful when using proprietary formats and try not to use them if there is a negotiable alternative. I was using iWork because it was pleasant to use, intuitive and it never went into my way. The Keynote was the best alternative out there for me – the output was just lovely. The output from other tools is not that nice, or at least requires much more work to achieve similar results.

How can I trust Apple now and use their products if they can easily render my documents unreadable without any immediately accessible (from the internet) and legal option?

P.S.: I apologize for the rant, but this should be a warning for you who are using proprietary products as well as I do

#Apple   #iWork   #fail   #proprietary   #OpenOffice

Would be nice if you could at least download that old version.  Wow, even MS puts out a converter app for old files.

Anyone know of an online video editing service where I can upload my videos and edit them? I need to be able to crop, blur specific parts, host, stream, stuff like that.

Youtube can actually do a lot of that.  But you'll be a lot better off if you edit things locally.
