Leveraging the Facebook API on Google AppEngine with jQuery Mobile

In the past I’ve built starter kits for Facebook development in ASP.NET and building CruiseControl plugins. My latest interest has been experimenting with Google AppEngine as my day job is all python appserver stuff so it’s a pretty logical fit. I’m slowly putting together all of the pieces I’d like to have in website starter kit including support for jQuery Mobile and Facebook Graph API.

I have a simple proof-of-concept app working here. Btw, as this is a work-in-progress it YMMV and the app may or may not be in a working state so apologies in advance.

Technologies used:

Google AppEngine

Cheetah Templates

Facebook Graph API

jQuery Mobile

Removing rounded corners on jQueryUI elements

I had this question today and it turns out the answer is pretty simple

  1. First, it’s important to note that as of this writing IE 8 (what I tested) doesn’t render rounded corners as implemented in jQueryUI v1.8.14 though I understand there is a plugin that enables that feature.
  2. To remove rounded corners on all elements of jQueryUI (for Chrome, FF and Safari) you can include the following in your own CSS:
    .ui-corner-all { border-radius: 0px; -moz-border-radius-bottomright: 0px; -moz-border-radius-bottomleft: 0px; -moz-border-radius-topright: 0px; -moz-border-radius-topleft: 0px;}

Now, credit where credit is due.
