FlashAirDownloader – development: Now it’s your turn

Hi,. folks,

I just programmed a small windows service to automatically FlashAir-pictures when I found out that I lost my FlashAir – card

So I am not able to test that program anymore. I decided for myself that I need something better than the unstable FlashAir-Cards and bought a camera with WiFi inside. (Just in case you are curious: It is a Sony HX400)

I do not publish this as a working download, because I am not able to test it. So there is a big chance that this even breaks the original program. But FAD2 is open source, so I checked the code in into the development-branch on GitHub.

So if there is any C# – developer out there who is willing to invest one or two hours to finish that, feel free to do that.

 

P.S: No, please don’t buy me a new FlashAir 🙂

Two Apps at the same time: Deploy SharePoint Add-In to Cloud AND On-Premise

What the fuzz is this about?

I am not absolutely sure if I am the first one who did this, but it seems at least noone else wrote it down until now. 🙂
We hat a customer who liked our Office365 Provider-Hosted App “Mydea”, but wanted us to install that on his SharePoint 2013 – Installation. In Germany a lot of companies do not trust the cloud. So we had three options:

  1. Tell the customer this does not work
  2. Copy&paste the whole solution and change it so it works on OnPrem
  3. Do something else

The first option – of course – wasn’t valid for me. The second would have worked. But I did not want to end up in maintanance hell. Our product is about innovation management. And the most innovative about that is the product itself. We develop agile, adding new features (and sometimes bugs) continuously. We do not want to do that twice.

So I ended up on the third option: Changing my solution so it will run in an Office365 – SharePoint and on an On-Premise installation of SharePoint 2013 (or above).

FlashAirDownloader 2

Development stopped! Please read this before downloading FAD
Keep your Version updated! Always click onto the “Check for Updates” in the Program after installation

The FlashAirDownloader 2 is out there (Because of my Laziness I will just call it FAD from now on)

A lot of people used the FlashAirDownloader which was meant as a personal tool and quick hack to access my Toshiba FlashAir Card. As more and more people asked me for features (and some for the code) I decided to make it open source so more folks can help improve the tool.

Sadly so: The code was a mess. As I told you: Just a quick hack. It would be to embarrassing to make this public 😀 So I decided to rewrite it from scratch: This time making it right regarding code quality and UI design. Nonetheless this program still uses Framework 4.0, cause I know there are Windows XP users out there who have no other possibilities to access the FlashAir.
