Modern Web development

Back in May last year, I visited the town of Bruges in Belgium for TMS Days 2023. Aside from the sessions, I was able to talk to a lot of developers in person and also ask them about their feedback for How it works with Holger. one thing stood out: Developers love tips and tricks bundled with examples. However, it would be even more appreciated if the example spanned from the creation of the app to it being finished.

Display and edit tabular data with Tabulator and TMS WEB Core

Displaying and editing tabular data is one of the strengths developers think of when they hear the programming language Delphi. Database-driven desktop applications need proper ways to display, filter, sort, and edit records. As TMS WEB Core is designed for Delphi developers to create Web applications, integration of grids is an essential part.

How to deploy your TMS WEB Core application or Web service within minutes

Deploying a web application during its development process can be tedious. This is true in particular for web services that need HTTPS endpoints with SSL certificates so that mobile Apple or Android devices can access them. There are a lot of examples setting up a Docker environment or publishing your services directly to a developer specific server. Still, all of these approaches are not as easy as the steps given in the video.

Reading Twitter Feeds in a Delphi VCL app

After a long time, a new 5-Minute-Snack for Delphi desktop application developers that still love the VCL as much as I do… (I can also tell you about one thing that I 100% dislike: the new WordPress editor aka Gutenberg. What a mess! I am a developer, so please let me type my post and be done with it. These new blocks are ridiculous.)

Actually, I have to confess that you will need the fabulous TMS VCL Cloud Pack to reproduce this snack. Even though Delphi is an amazing tool, it would take you longer than 5 minutes to write an interface to the Twitter API.
