We applied 3D animations within the demo workplace so that starting/ ending and switching dialogs comes with a corresponding animation. Take a look.
…and tell us what you think about. We appreciate your feed back!
Take a look at demo Cube-rotations in our demo workplace:
The demo shows how a typical navigation scenario “filter-list-detail” can be upgraded by using 3D animations. We believe the upgrade is more than a “wow-effect” – but is a usage pattern, that the user will intuitively take over if consistently used within an application!
For developers: the component behind (“CUBEROTATOR)” is extremely simple to use and does not require any knowledge about transformations at all. All information behind the demo is available within the demo workplace.
When creating a layout you now can choose from a list of preconfigured templates:
Selecting a template will take over its layout definition (.xml), its code (.java) and additional resources (e.g. images) into your project. The layout that is created from the template will automatically work and is the starting base for your implementations.
The list of templates can be extended by own templates, so that typical layouts within your application environment can be quickly created.
The CaptainCasa tools now automatically detect the adequate level of re-loading runtime classes when applying changes during development. The very fast “Hot Deployment” is executed by default – a full re-load of the application is only done if really required.
For deploying your changes to the server-runtime there is only one central button left:
Dependent on the changes there are three different scenarios:
The automated detection is a significant simplification during development – before developers had to manually select the level of re-loading.
