Setting up Aptana Studio

Posted 11-06-2010 at 03:07 PM by Focused4Success

Aptana Studio comes packaged in two different ways:
  • An standalone executable
  • An Eclipse plug-in

I tried the Eclipse plug-in because I plan to use Eclipse for C/C++ development. But I didn't like the way it worked as much as using Aptana Studio standalone. I also plan to run OpenSUSE in the background and access it using X-Windows from the Mac.

I used the following procedure to install Aptana Studio:...

Setting up my Web Development Environment based on Aptana Studio

Posted 11-06-2010 at 02:14 PM by Focused4Success

I really like using Aptana Studio for web development. I started using Aptana in 2008 when I wrote a web application for the original iPhone. Later I used it at work when I converted the embedded web server in our product from a traditional architecture to and Ajax architecture. That's when I learned about jQuery.... very, very cool.

Setting up my Webserver using LAMP

Posted 11-06-2010 at 11:16 AM by Focused4Success

The reason I started running OpenSUSE is to setup a development environment to build a LAMP based website. I installed OpenSUSE and setup Aptana Studio. Then I setup LAMP.

OpenSUSE has a pretty nice software installation manager. I wasn't aware of it until I read this article: SDB:Linux Apache MySQL PHP. It has a really nice description of how to install everything required to setup a PHP based Webserver with a MySQL backend. That what LAMP means: Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP.

Time Synchronization

Posted 11-06-2010 at 09:55 AM by Focused4Success

I use NTP to keep my clock synchronized. The method employed works only if the computer has access to the Internet on a consistent basis, which is usually the case for my computer, so this method works fine.

Two steps are required:
  1. Configuring the NTP client to keep the clock up to date
  2. Making sure the system time is set properly

NTP is configured via the following procedure:
  • Click on the Application Launcher
  • Click on the Applications tab
  • Click on the System tab
  • Scroll
