Embedding Gist in Blogger

November 28, 2016

I tried to embed Gist into my blogger post. Everything looked fine except the overflow:scroll is not working. Interestingly, without setting fixed height (eg. height:100px) both x and y scrolls are not working. 

I tried the following override in blogger template and it somehow broke the overall scroll. 

.gist .blob-wrapper
    height: 100vh !important;
    height:500px !important;
    overflow-y: auto !important;

Finally I settled down to the following, which wrapped the text decently. 

.gist .blob-code-inner {
white-space:pre-wrap !important;


SPOnline Search REST API POST request

November 27, 2016

There is one thing about Sharepoint. It doesn't let you pass even if there is a slight formatting error in your request. And, most of the time error is not so appropriate or no error. 

I faced the same situation when i tried to compose a POST request for SPOnline Search REST API. The query text was quite complex as I was trying to retrieve search results based on a managed property which is in turn is generated from managed metadata column. The key here is not introduce + symbol in place of space as we would generally do in GET request.

ng-click doesn't work with ion-slides

November 26, 2016


Clicks doesn't work for elements inside ion-slides. Or you may experience slow clicks in the initial load, but eventually click event doesn't work. I tried to place ion-checkbox inside ion-slides. It used to work fine when the chrome is lightly loaded. Once the browser gets heavier, ion-checkbox doesn't respond. 


This relates to a bug in Swiper component which is used to build ion-slides. It relates to the bug file in their git repo.

The resolutions is as follows:

I've found the issue... This two options: preventClicks and preventClicksPropagation, are by default set to true. Setting them to false will solve the issue.
