An useful example on how to extend Javascript

Wednesday, November 29th, 2006

Today I found out I could extend the functionality of __EXISTING__ html classes with javascript.

I was manipulating DOM objects, better known as HTMLElement objects, and I needed a way to print the HTML that represents the tag of the object, not what’s contained by the tags… a friend told me there was a method called “outerHTML”, and I thought he was joking, but it certainly makes sense after the precious “innerHTML” method (which is one of the only things which I thank IE for).

So, the same story for outerHTML, it is not supported by mozilla browsers, but little did I know, that existing class functionality can be extending using the prototypes… see how you can add .outerHTML compatibility to your page, just paste this in one of generic libraries:

//In order to allow .outerHTML in Firefox, we add this.
var _emptyTags = {
   "IMG":   true,
   "BR":    true,
   "INPUT": true,
   "META":  true,
   "LINK":  true,
   "PARAM": true,
   "HR":    true
};

HTMLElement.prototype.__defineGetter__("outerHTML", function () {
   var attrs = this.attributes;
   var str = "<" + this.tagName;
   for (var i = 0; i < attrs.length; i++)
      str += " " + attrs[i].name + "="" + attrs[i].value + """;

   if (_emptyTags[this.tagName])
      return str + ">";

   return str + ">" + this.innerHTML + "";
});

Now If you’re doing something say with scriptaculous…

someTD = Builder.node(‘td’, {‘valign’:’top’},[someNode, someNode2, someNode3])

and you need to get the HTML for someTD, all you do is:

someTD.outerHTML

and it will work on both IE and Firefox.

Enjoy.

Enjoy.

135 degrees lean is the way to sit baby

Originally uploaded by Gubatron.


Scientists concluded that sitting in a 90degree position is actually bad for your back… so lean back, lean back, lean back, but only up to 135 degrees.

Got an XBOX 360

Monday, November 27th, 2006

After a lot of analisys on what to buy, considering price, availability and specs, me and my friends decided to get Xbox 360s to wait for probably June or July 2007 to buy a PS3 when the prices drop.


See the entire flickr set here

I got Gears of War and Need for Speed = Carbon.

My Xbox live gamer tag is GUBATRON.

Cheers to the people of Planeta Ligero podcast, I sure gave them a lot of shit for talking and defending this product, I must say I consider them being right about it after trying it.

Black Friday (2006) in Front of Macy’s at 34th St, New York

Monday, November 27th, 2006

The power of a capitalist nation (a little insane to shop, but beautiful to see that we can go out and buy what we want). Let’s hope we can start doing this again in Venezuela after the elections, currently people who can get dollars have to come to the states to buy, otherwise its a nightmare getting what you want in my country, everything is limited to the amount of dollars people can get to import goods to the country, and its not so easy making your own products without dollars either.


inside macy’s, you could barely walk


people making lines to go into elevators

Capitalism and freedom is the way to go, at least for now I don’t see a better one in practice.

Finalmente Tengo Beryl

Thursday, November 16th, 2006

Tras un par de guindadas y jugar unos 30 minutos con varias guias de instalacion, el empujon que me dio el pana Skatox con su post sobre Beryl dio resultado.

Finalmente estoy sacandole provecho a la tjta 3d que le compre a esta maquina.

Beryl con dual screen es todo un espectaculo, vean por uds mismos, disculpen el video si se sale del frame, pero estaba grabando con la camara en el cuello pq necesitaba utilizar las dos manos para hacer el demo y no tenia nadie a la mano que sostuviera la camara…


(Hice la explicacion en ingles para agarrar mayor audiencia)

Vean el articulo de Skatox si quieren montar Beryl, vale la pena.

Ojo, van a pasar mas de hora y media jugando con todas las configuraciones, y customizando su perfil.

Mis efectos favoritos son los de Zoom pq estoy ciego e perinola, los que permiten mostrar todas las ventanas que tienes abiertas, y por supuesto el cubo que es alucinante. Sobre todo si tienes por ejemplo, un video corriendo en una ventana en otro escritorio, y suena algo interesante, presionas Ctrl+Alt+Click izquierdo, y de forma intuitiva mueves el mouse en esa direccion, y es como si estuvieras volteando la cabeza a un lado del cuarto para ver lo que sale en el video del otro escritorio, muy muy pavo.
