ChildBrowser iOS xCode

Today I tried to simplify the ChildBrowser execution in xCode, which I follwed earlier. To my surprise, I don't need to do anything rather than simply ignoring some steps. Here is the procedure:
  1. Download the ChildBrowser plugins here.
  2. Start xCode and create a phonegap-based application.
  3. In Supporting Files > PhoneGap.plist, add under Plugins (click the down arrow to the left of Plugins, then click on the + symbol to open a new row):
    Key: ChildBrowserCommand

    Type: String (default)

    Value: ChildBrowserCommand 
  4. You need to associate your external URLs on this page, too. In Supporting Files > PhoneGap.plist, add them under
    ExternalHosts, like:
    Key: Item 0

    Type: String (default)

    Value:  * or whatever URL you are using in the code(* is enough)
  5. Right-click on the Plugins folder in Xcode and select to “Add Files to…” the folder.
  6. Navigate to the phonegap-plugins > iPhone > Childbrowser folder, and select the ChildBrowser folder. Check “Copy items into. . .” and “Create groups for. . .” A ChildBrowser folder is added to the Plugins folder.

Sample Code:



<script type=”text/javascript” charset="utf-8" src=”phonegap.<version>.js”></script>

<script type=”text/javascript” charset="utf-8" src=”ChildBrowser.js”></script>
            <script type=”text/javascript” charset="utf-8">

                        var cb;

                        function onDeviceReady()    {
                                 cb = ChildBrowser.install();
                        function showChild()  {


<body onload=”onDeviceReady()”>

<a href="#" onclick="showChild()">Click here</a>

Ubuntu: Access a usb flash drive from the terminal

    1. Find what the drive is called You'll need to know what the drive is called to mount it. To do that fire off: sudo fdisk -l You're looking for a partition that should look something like:   /dev/sdb1 . Remember what it's called. 2. Create a mount point Create a new directory in   /media   so you can mount the drive onto the filesystem: sudo mkdir /media/usb 3. Mount! sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media/usb When you're done, just fire off: sudo umount /media/usb Source: StackOverflow

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.

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
