I’ve had the request to post the update site for Eclipse Color Themes that can be used in Domino Designer, built from version 0.12.0.

Managing Tasks and ToDos in XPages

Earlier this week I was running a technical enablement session on XPages for IBM. One of the first steps was to configure Domino Designer. I’ve championed before some of the benefits that Eclipse brought to Domino Designer, such as the search and local history (which has been my saviour on many an occasion!). But one I only …

The Power of Eclipse: Domino Designer Search

If you’ve been developing Domino applications for any length of time, you will be aware of the Design Synopsis. Mainly you’ll be aware of it as a major selling point for third-party tools like those of TeamStudio or Ytria. If you’re new to Domino development with XPages, you’re not missing anything.

Domino Designer Shortcuts, Build Project and Quirks

Some time ago Nathan Freeman blogged about making Domino Designer work the way you want, lots of excellent productivity tips for improving performance of Domino Designer.
