Facebook Share (URL based)

This is the most simplest way to add a facebook share button.

Use the following code as the reference(href) attribute of your anchor tag(<a>)

"http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php?u=<text or url to post on wall>"

You can use any image to show the share button, but be precise in selecting it,

as the user should get on it easily.

Consider the following sample code:

<a href="http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php?u=https://thechaithanya.wordpress.com"><img src="http://www.acrnet.org/uploadedImages/Get_Involved/facebook-logo.png" alt="share on facebook"></a>

If you are developing any applicetion or website and want the post to be displayed as it was posted from your app,

like "via theChaithanya", use the following code:

         "http://m.facebook.com/dialog/feed?app_id=YOUR-APP-ID&link=LINK-TO-BE-POSTED&redirect_uri=PATH-TO-LOCATION-AFTER-SHARE"

On successful sharing it will redirect you to the redirect-url along with post-id.

Note: To get APP-ID, you have to register a developer account and create an app.

Also the redirect url should be added there in the app settings.

Karabiner: Mouse/keyboard customizer for OS X

For beginners, or the one who migrated from Windows environment, Natural Gestures (Scrolling and Swiping) might be bit confusing. But, once you get familiarized with them, it may feel like "What was I doing, all those days?". It all changed, when I connected external mouse to my Macbook. When you start using that WHEEL, you will be confused. Luckily there is a setting for mouse, to change scroll behavior (natural or the other way). But, here's the catch. If you toggle that setting, it also toggles the same for TRACKPAD!!!!! I've seen that many people were freaked out and even raised BUG report to Apple. But, all those reports were closed, saying that is not a bug, but intentional feature!!! For those, who can't leave with such one-sided settings, here is a simple util, which came to my rescue: Karabiner It's simple, powerful and stable mouse/keyboard customizer for OSX. Without going into much detail, here's the configuration I used to ret

Java: Use BigInteger in for-loop

In my previous post , I mentioned a way to handle large integers by using BigInteger. Now I'm going to provide a very important usage of it. We often use for-loop. So here is the way to use it: Ordinary integers: for(int i = 1; i <= n; i++) {  //Task to do } BigInteger: for (BigInteger bi = BigInteger.valueOf(1);                 bi.compareTo(n) <= 0;                 bi = bi.add(BigInteger.ONE)) { //Task to do } here n is a BigInteger variable.
