More Dev

Well, I’m still working on getting chat working with the TuneTug app. Functionally speaking, it’s working as chat should be. But I’m facing a developer’s dilemma in trying to make the new feature look cool, trying to implement page transitions using jquery mobile.

The problem with updating the app with a new framework like jquery mobile, is that it doesn’t mesh well with the existing platform. When I have jqm turned on for the chat feature, it clashes with other parts of the app. So now I am sifting through the source for jqm and trying to pick only needed parts, which is not something I’m crazy about. I’d rather be building new functionality or reading about new technologies.

Oh well, we’ll see how far this gets.
