Most of my readers are in two camps, with many intersections along the way. The two primary camps are Eclipse Developers and Lotus Notes/Domino developers. I have lately been more on the Eclipse side – primarily because of my job – but none the less I do post occasionally Notes and Domino development stuff. Anyway, I want to introduce to both communities (if not already known) the Eclipse Marketplace! This is essentially the same thing as what OpenNTF is for the Notes community. So for all of you Notes folks out there, there is another site you can use for Eclipse tools, plugin’s and solutions that may fit into your enterprise or in your daily tools. Check it out!
If you recall my last post about the download counter plugin for WordPress; well, today I have an update to the usefulness of this plugin. While OpenNTF is a great tool to share source code, widgets and sometimes binaries, it may not reflect how many people are actually using the widget. If the widget accessed a remote site you could potentially figure out how many different clients connect to the server but none of my widgets do that, so I am left with download counts on OpenNTF and from my own site.
You can see the Attachment Viewer download statistics on OpenNTF:
Attachment Viewer – Releases
And here are the statistics for the Multiple Database Search project:
Multi-Database Search Plugin – Releases
The problem with this is I really don’t know how many people are actually using it! And to be honest I don’t think I ever will because someone could download it and distribute it freely – oh well. So what I wanted to do was provide the binaries on my site and provide the widget XML so end users can install it themselves, without having to look at the source code. You can see the numbers are very close, so this means the readers of this site closely mirror the people who are also downloading on OpenNTF – well that’s a loose theory anyway.
For reference, here are the widgets you can use to install the different projects:

This quick tip shows how you can convert Microsoft Office files with just two clicks to Lotus Symphony Open Document Format. You can also rate this video on the Lotus Symphony Wiki.
How cool is this?
I combined all of the quick tip videos I have created into a single video using DragonTape.
If you get a chance, check out the Open Social templates. It is similar to Dojo templating and XPages. It carries a lot of similarities and I think it adds some interesting semantics to writing web applications. You can check it out here or play with it below.
I get asked all of the time how to do printing of charts, graphs and many other visual representations of Domino and Lotus Notes data. Check out the webinar Synaptris has tomorrow.
Avoid exporting Lotus Notes data to spreadsheets and protect your sensitive / confidential data from getting leaked/exposed outside your organization. With Synaptris new IntelliPRINT Analytics 4.0 (Beta) you can move your Notes data to a grid within Lotus Notes client and perform powerful analysis in a way that is interactive and easy to use. Save the analysis you make as a Smartview that you can come back and open again anytime. You can even share these Smartviews with others. Of course, there are options to export the analysed data to PDF, Excel, XML etc if you desperately need that.
You can perform operations like sorting, filtering (including multi-select filtering), grouping, and basic mathematical functions (sum, percentage, count, count distinct, minimum, maximum, average, etc.). IntelliPRINT Analytics also enables you to perform advanced functions like creating Interactive Charts (with drill down capability), Pivot Tables, Conditional Formatting, Applying Formulae (including Lotus Formulae) and linking multiple Notes databases.
See how you can do all this and more in a 30 minute Webinar on Thursday November 18, 2010 at 2 PM EST. Sign up for the Webinar at http://www.synaptris.com/events/webinar-registration.html . Kindly pass on this link to others whom you think would find the Webinar useful.
