Using AWS Step Functions in CFML: Speaking Translated Text into a MP3 File [+]
Brian Klass | 7/15/19 10:00 AM
We are now at the final step in this parallel execution inside our Step Functions workflow that transcribes a video, takes the transcript and translates it into a different langugage (Spanish, in this parallel execution), and speaks that translated text into a MP3 file. This final step, titled “makeSpanishAudioFile” in our workflow, uses another AWS service that I haven’t yet covered in any of my many posts on using AWS from CFML: AWS Polly.

Using top: auto will not work when vertically aligning text within multiple block level elements. [+]
Gregory Alexander | 7/12/19 4:30 PM | CSS
Using top: auto, margin: auto, margin-top: -50%, etc, will not work when vertically aligning text within multiple block level elements. The problem with these css declarations in block level elements is that the values would be calculated as zero when they are calculated relative to the width of outer blocks. CSS2 specifies that block level elements are stacked vertically from top to bottom in normal flow. If you only have one block level element, the the top and bottom margins will be zero

Returning CFQuery / Query Results As Arrays In Lucee [+]
Kinky Solutions | 7/12/19 8:00 AM | ColdFusion
Ben Nadel takes a quick look at the Query "returnType" attribute, which allows query results to be returned as an Arrays-of-Structs rather than as a database recordset. This is a small but exciting efficiency which allows member methods like .map(), .sort(), and .filter() to be called directly on the returned value from queryExecute() and the cfquery tag....

Kinky Solutions | 7/11/19 8:00 AM | Javascript / DHTML
Ben Nadel demonstrates how the String.prototype.localeCompare() method can be used, in modern browsers, to implement a "natural sort" with almost no effort. This type of sort treats embedded numbers as numbers, leading to a more human-friendly ordering of string values....

Using AWS Step Functions in CFML: The Frustration of Variable Reassignment in Step Functions [+]
Brian Klass | 7/8/19 12:30 PM
As mentioned at the end of the last post in this series, if we try to take our translated text and pass it directly into the next (and final) step in this parallel execution, it won’t quite work. We would get an error that the textToSpeak property wasn’t defined in the event object. Why? I’m not going to show the code for the convertTextToSpeech.js function just yet, but it exp
