Swift makes it easy to write software that is incredibly fast and safe by design. Now that Swift is open source, you can help make the best general purpose programming language available everywhere.

For students, learning Swift has been a great introduction to modern programming concepts and best practices. And because it is now open, their Swift skills will be able to be applied to an even broader range of platforms, from mobile devices to the desktop to the cloud.”

Recently Google started offering more convenient and easier ways to the Android smart phone users to discover and view contents that are exclusively within the apps. Yet, the most fascinating part is that the users don’t even have to install the apps in some cases.

For instance, the Facebook – if you’ve configured and synced your device’s Chrome browser than you will be able to receive the Facebook notifications, even if you have not installed the Facebook.

Google admits that it has invested a huge workload when it comes to app indexing, and have boasted 100 billion deep links into the apps in Google’s index.

Yet, despite this you won’t be able to view all the contents of the apps, as the functionality works to showcase only a few contents, wherein most of the contents will still exist within the app itself.

As per Google, it is now able it is now able to index and showcase the contents that lives within the app.
This will work as a great tool for the quality app developer and for those as well who are practicing a good App Store Optimization strategy, as even though their app might rank well behind the App Store rankings, yet their targeted user base will be able to view the contents from their app, encouraging the users to install it on their devices.

It has been quite a while since I’ve been facing a particular issue in Rail, wherein the browser needs to revalidate the page on each request, which is a good sign, until someone clicks the hits the back button, and reload it, this time the browser won’t revalidate the request, it will simply load the page from It’s cache.

This could be vital when you are dealing with critical information, as it can lead to some serious leaking of the information, especially when you as a user logs out from the browser / application, and someone else takes the same machine, and tries to access it from the history. When a new user visits the page from history, the browser won’t revalidate the request, and will load the page from the cache – as stated above. Besides, if there is an advanced hacker in place, he can even decrypt the browser’s cache files and can gain the access of the critical information.

However, recently, I came across a blog from Greg Molnar, which indeed help to resolve the above issue.
Herein, to resolve the issue, one can explicitly set the ‘Cache-Control’ header in the app with a before filter:
“before_filter :set_as_private

protected

def set_as_private
response.headers['Cache-Control'] = ‘no-cache, no-store’
end”

So from next time, whenever you want to display sensitive information, you can call this filter in each controller. Alternatively, you can also set a question for the users while sign in that whether they are on a public computer or private and set the cache header based on the choice.
