How To: Forms, Design and Layout

During our beta stage, and while we finish rounding off the corners of Bungee Connect, there are a number of features I want to start shedding more light upon. This is the first in a series blog posts I’ll be publishing that I hope our beta developers will find useful.

This particular post will be a quick hit at Form development in the builder. Bungee Connect is all about rich UI, so this is a natural place to start. Read the rest of this entry »

How To: Inspect XML Docs in Bungee Connect

Recently, one of the participants in the Bungee Connect early access beta asked me how to view XML information in Bungee Connect.

Updated: Google Maps Tutorial

We just wrapped up a complete overhaul of the Google Maps Tutorial. It’s now much shorter
than the previous version. (In fact, the previous version had somehow lost a couple key steps, which meant that the tutorial didn’t quite work.) The application you create in the tutorial is a bit stripped down, of course, but building it gives you what you need for your bigger projects.

If you are a participant in the Early Access Beta for Bungee Connect, please give the new tutorial a whirl. We’re always eager for feedback.

If you’re not a participant in the Early Access Beta and want to be, sign up here.
