Gif screen recording


Lets say you want to quickly make a short demo of Android application that can be easy embedded into web pages like git, confluence and any other content supporting gif animations. It is dead simple and faster compared with setting up video content. Take a note that the compression shouldn’t be your goal here because mp4 uses better algorithms to decrease the amount of information needed to display a sequence of images.

Create mock REST API Server


Mock REST API with json-server and support of faker and lodash npm modules.

In case you need lightweight-lightningfast deployment of fake REST API for prototyping, get Docker image that has npm json-server module installed. Just save static data in JSON file. Image also includes faker and lodash modules so instead of static JSON initialization file you can script a ton of data.

Docker image: json-server-faker

Format TextView content with HTML tags

Android development

In most of the times, for displaying few lines of plain old text in Android application the TextView widget will be sufficient. What if you want to add a bit of text formatting to it? For example wrapping lines, making words bold or underlined, even adding some links to it. It can be accomplished by providing HTML code to the TextView widget as text source. Saving HTML code in Android app for reuse.
