Microsoft OneDrive access from UWP app

I’m writing an app that uses OneDrive to share it’s data but I found the documentation a bit jumbled and out of date so I’ll try to post a clear and simple method for connecting to OneDrive from a Windows 10 Universal App written in C# The first step is to install the Microsoft.OneDriveSDK NuGet package https://github.com/OneDrive/onedrive-sdk-csharp Then create an App that is registered in Windows Dev Center You don’t need…

Raspberry Pi 2 time-lapse

I’ve had a few goes at using the Pi for time lapse and it worked pretty well so I decided to take a really long one and see how it went. This one is of some broad beans growing, the first try ended badly after a few days when someone (no names, you know who you are!) knocked the camera over while watering the beans. Anyway, this one took 400…

TiddlyWinks demo video

Here’s a quick demo of tiddlywinks.

Construct 2

Thought I’d try out Construct 2…….got completely obsessed. After the first weekend I’d hit the 100 Event limit in the free edition and had to upgrade to the Personal edition. Anyway, it’s great for really quickly getting ideas roughed out which saves a huge amount of time when your starting out as you don’t always know how to do stuff. The online community seems to be thriving and the number…

Sharing enums between C++ and C#

In your C# project  properties on the Build tab, add a conditional compilation symbol called C_SHARP Then create a new file in the C# project to hold the Enums. Here I’ve created an enum called AlarmEnum in the namespace Models in a file called commonAlarms.cs   #if C_SHARP using System; namespace Models { public #endif enum AlarmEnum { //Common AL_NONE = 0, AL_PROCESS_ABORT =1, AL_VACUUM_TRIP = 2, AL_DOOR_OPEN = 3, AL_AIR_FAIL…
