SLoggly is in the AppExchange

Get it while it's hot!

July 04, 2013 by pcon

After far too long, SLoggly is finally available as a public Managed Package in the AppExchange. Feel free to install it, and play around with it!

Like any software, there may be some issues that we have not seen, so if you have any problems, please file them over at GitHub and we'll take care of them ASAP. As always, we'll be in the #solenopsis channel on freenode if you have any questions or just want to chat. Also feel free to email with any questions.

Documentation is silly

But we still need it.

March 14, 2013 by pcon

We're in the midst of a minor-major update to the backing of solenopsis. This will be solenopsis 1.2. Because of that, you'll notice that most our our documentation has been prepend with 1.1

Why does it matter? Well, it's because while we work on 1.2 we'll be pushing parts of it out as we go along, so you can use both of them at the same time. All you need to do is add --solversion=1.2 to the command to set your version.

Updated documentation

Because we love you.

Let’s face it, nobody like writing documentation. We’d much rather be chugging away at coding, or looking at pictures of cats. But, we do what we must because we can love you.

We’ve moved most of the documentation from the into their own wiki pages

Some of our wiki pages hot off the presses are:

How We Redesigned

February 08, 2013 by pcon

As you may or may not have noticed, yesterday we pushed out a new version of our webpage. So the question may be “why would you do that since it was just a page that pointed to github?”. Well, that’s just the point, it was just a page that pointed to github, but it could be so much more. The rewrite started with the fact that we did not like that our blog entries were coming from an ugly wordpress url and site, and we wanted to have a little more control over how we could use that site. In the rest of this post, we’ll go over what’s new, and how we did it.

What’s new?

  • Github hosted blog
  • Unified theme across all projects
  • Prettier
  • More responsive

What did we use?

Like most people that want to use github as a blog hosting framework we started with Jekyll because it offers templating and github pages “just work” with it. All we have to do is push out the code to the github repo and tada! it’s ready. Jekyll also makes it easy to create blog posts since they are in seperate template files

However, one of the biggest problems with Jekyll is that it doesn’t really make anything pretty. You have to do that. So we decided to give Bootstrap a try because it give us a lot of layout things for free as well as including nifty icons!

What now?

We’d like to promise that we’ll blog all the time now, but that probably won’t happen, but we will try to keep this page updated with information about our tools and if we add any new tools, we’ll make sure we add them as well. In the meantime, we’re working on updating our wiki to make it easier to setup and understand our tools. We’re also trying to migrate Solenopsis from ANT to full python with the MetadataAPI but it’s slow going.

Want something to checkout in the meantime? Take a gander at some of the presentations we’ve done about our tools.

Introducing SLoggly

November 14, 2012 by pcon

Recently we have released another tool in the Solenopsis “suite” of Salesforce tools. This tool is designed to be able to push messages from APEX in Salesforce to Loggly. It supports single logs and batch logging. Head over to our github page to read about it and download it for yourself. We will be working on getting this built and deployed on the AppExchange shortly.
