It seems like just yesterday that I found myself awestruck with awestruct, and yet here I am today reviving my blog with a new site building tool called Hugo. The motivation for this was two-fold. My awestruct/Asciidoctor gem configuration had fallen out of date, and needed some TLC to get working again. I wanted to learn Go. While I’ve successfully migrated my blog/site to hugo, I have not managed to realize goal 2 and learn about Go in the process!
crosspost from: https://blog.patternfly.org/patternfly-roadmap-update/ Last November we published the PatternFly roadmap where we put forward the idea for PatternFly 4 and 5, an effort around web components, and a CSS rewrite. Alpha releases for PatternFly 4 and PatternFly Web Components delivered initial progress on these efforts. However, the story has grown more complex with the introduction of additional PatternFly framework repositories. In this post we will provide a status update on our delivery of our roadmap, and explain how all these repositories and future versions tie together.

In recent releases we introduced a number of changes aimed at simplifying the consumption and contribution processes for both designers and developers. There are a number of ways we want to improve and scale out PatternFly that can’t be addressed without introducing breaking changes to the project.
Delegating to 3rd parties to manage your authorization is incredibly helpful when developing a new application. A benefit to users and developers alike, this task is made all the more helpful with the number of social networks providing Oauth2 APIs that we can use for our authorization. In this blog post I will address using the Google Play services on Android from a hybrid mobile Cordova application to retrieve an Oauth2 token that we can then use with Google’s Oauth2 REST API.
Adding a splash screen to your mobile application is useful to provide users with feedback that their application is starting while performing any initialization tasks. In this blog post I will summarize how I created a scalable splash screen and how I configured my Cordova application to use it. Drawing the splash screen If you’re not an artist (as I am not!) then creating a graphical splash screen can be a somewhat daunting task.
