Migrating to Polymer 1.0

In the latest Google I/O the Polymer team introduced the first production-ready version of Polymer(1.0) and as they said many parts have been completely rewritten
and is now faster and better than ever.
Let me check the migration instructions, oh…
If you didn’t follow along with the latest pre-releases(0.7, 0.9) and stayed on the 0.5.x branch(like me), everything will be broken, let me name a few core changes :

Exploring the possibilities of live unit testing [Experiment]

I really enjoy writing automated tests(yes, really) for basically anything i am working on, i sometimes go test-first if something is clear how it’s going to end or at least clear enough
to see a possible outcome as you go.But what i don’t do is mocking!(sometimes unavoidable, but still) I usually use a set of fixtures with real data(at least as real as a predefined piece of information can be), letting my tests hit real endpoints and databases and actually thinning the barrier between unit and integration testing.

Static website comments? - Introducing EasyComments!

After finishing this blog i wanted to add some type of discussion or comment system for communication, productive arguing and such.
There are many great services like disqus that can be quickly intergrated and quite usable and pretty, but i needed something really simple
and self-managed(too much free time maybe?).

Polymer: Vulcanize all the things!

Update: With the release of stable Polymer 1.0 there have also been some changes to vulcanize, so the post has been updated accordingly.
Make sure you read the migration page and README.

I have been playing around with Polymer for the last few weeks and it is really enjoyable.Reusable little pieces with encapsulated html, css and javascript
combined with useful core elements and default paper elements which are really pretty plus the ever-growing custom-elemenets repository.

First post ever

You know it’s great having a blog, you have so much fun making it, setting things up, move elements around, playing with colors.Great that should do it!
But then comes the time to actually add some content(that’s what you made it for? isn’t it?)
So here is my first post on how i built it.

There are many great blogging(or cms) platforms like wordpress or drupal and refinery(written in ruby which i love) but do i actually need all that functionality they provide? Probably not, so here comes jekyll!
Jekyll is a static site generator that is blog aware(yes you can make blogs with it) that comes as a ruby gem which is really easy to setup and really configurable.
Ok, got the platform right, but how about actually learning something new in the process? Webcomponents(and polymer)!
Webcomponents and polymer-project is a new piece of technology that i have been very excited about and following for the past year, check it out at polymer-project.org
Lastly, let’s host it somewhere! Github pages is the answer which is free and it’s actually using jekyll so everything is automated with a beloved ‘git push’.
So…

puts "hello world!"
