  • Patent number: 10127021
    Abstract: The programming notebook system, methods, and user interfaces described herein provide software developers with enhanced tools by which a programming notebook workflow and session history associated with code cells in a programming notebook may be tracked and maintained. As a developer progresses through a development workflow, the developer can select an option to save a program code card representing some or all of the program code cell inputs. A card editor user interface may present an aggregated listing of all program code the developer has provided across multiple code cells during the current session which the developer can edit, refine, and/or comment. The card editor may also allow the developer to add associated user interface code to display a UI component associated with the program code card, and allow the developer to add a description and tags for the card so that the card can be searched for and reused.

  • Patent number: 10120776
    Abstract: The described technology is directed towards having document files (e.g., a JSON object) associated with objects of a computer program. The document files may include validation information that is used during runtime to validate one or more parts of the object via validation code such as a validation function. For example, a function of an object may have one validation function that during runtime validates whether the input parameter(s) are valid (their types and/or values are correct), and another validation function that during runtime validates whether the return values from the function are valid. Also described is processing the document files into more easily readable documentation, e.g., without any source code.

  • Patent number: 10073821
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for representing two or more related markup language source files in a single delta file is provided. The markup language source files are represented in such a way that the delta file is easily processed to produce one or more merged combinations of the source files. The method and apparatus ensure that any one of the original files can be extracted from the delta file and the delta file remains a valid delta file for any remaining source files. The method and apparatus is adapted to enable the sources files to be aligned with respect to structurally significant elements and textual content so as to reduce repetitions in the delta file of common content. The method and apparatus are suited for use, but not exclusively, with XML documents and files.
