Selecting something that has been created (or updated or deleted or …) between two dates is something very common I guess. So why should this be any different when you use MongoDB instead of a relational database.
And with Doctrine ODM it’s actually quite easy.
Well it can be easier than that!
I greatly enjoy working with Open Source Software and I enjoy it even more if it’s hosted on GitHub as sometimes things are missing for you and you can simply add them and do a pull request to the maintainers.
This is my simple workflow to do this.
Just a very short post today as a follow-up to a previous post in which I noticed that plussing already affects your search results.
It can get pretty annoying to see search results that are always influenced by your own social graph.
Just spent about an hour yesterday to figure out how to use unique indexes in a MongoDB document. It involves three simple steps.
Finally I found the time to play around with MongoDB. But before the results comes the installation which in my case happens on a Gentoo box and wasn’t as straightforward as it could’ve been.
The problem was that I wasn’t able to find all required information in one place.
Last Friday the folks from Twitter announced the release of their new front-end toolkit. It sounds like it’s yet another framework just like boilerplate, blueprintcss, 960 and all the others.
Now how does it differentiate?
Last week I made my first steps with CoffeeScript. Soon after I could see that I reduced the amount of code by about 30 percent and got it a little more readable.
But am I no longer able to separate my code into multiple files now?
I recently had a chance to join Forrst.com a community for developers and designer. Now you might say yet another niche community nobody needs and I thought exactly the same at first.
