Possible fix for Error 404 when logging into Bluemix via cf

In the following Node.js Tutorial provided on the IBM Bluemix Cloud environment, you get asked to log in to Bluemix via cf (Cloud Foundry Command Line Interface) using the following command:

cf login -a -o <your org name> -s <your space name>

For some reason, I kept getting the following error:


It seems the Endpoint URL changed, but even then, the above command didn’t work after using the new Endpoint URL. After some troubleshooting I finally managed to log in by doing the following:

  • In Terminal, enter cf login
  • API Endpoint =
  • Provide Email and Password.


I hope this helps

BlueMix Tip: Fix error when installing Cloud Foundry CLI via HomeBrew

In this article I quickly show you how to sort out a Formula error that could occur when trying to install Cloud Foundry CLI via HomeBrew for IBM BlueMix.

My Machine Specs

  • Apple MacBook Pro: Max OS X 10.8.5
  • HomeBrew 0.9.4

The Problem

I tried to run the HomeBrew command line to install Cloud Foundry CLI…

brew install cloudfoundry-cli

…but received the following error:

Error: No available formula for cloudfoundry-cli

Why did this happen?

It’s simple. My version of HomeBrew was 0.9.4 and Cloud Foundry requires 0.9.5 (I typed in brew -v to check the version).

To fix this, do the following:

  • Open Terminal
  • Clean and remove current version of HomeBrew by running the following command:

rm -rf /usr/local/Cellar /usr/local/.git && brew cleanup

  • Install latest version of HomeBrew by running the following command:

ruby -e “$(curl -fsSL”

  • Install Cloud Foundry CLI:

brew install cloudfoundry-cli

Simple as that. You can check the version of Cloud Foundry CLI by typing cf -v in Terminal.

Quick Note

To avoid the above-mentioned fuss, you can also download Cloud Foundry CLI directly by clicking here.

Happy Coding :)

Slides and Info for Worklight Session at IBM Connect 2014

Firstly, a big thanks to everyone who attended our session on “IBM Worklight and XPages” at IBM Connect 2014 last week. It was great to see so many people turn up, especially on the last day of IBM Connect.

Below are the slides to the IBM Worklight Session, which will be available on SlideShare and for download. I will be releasing a video on this topic and will submit it through David Leedy’s NotesIn9 VideoCast (Hopefully next week still). I will also have the source code available for download when submitting the video.

Thanks once again and see you all online.

Will I see you at IBMConnect next week? I hope so


This has to be one of my favorite months of the year. Not only am I well rested, full of new years resolutions and ready to cause some serious coding damage for 2014, I also get to spend a full week overseas at one of the most amazing holiday resorts, attending an IBM event that hosts thousands of people, and hanging out with some of the most talented and awesome folk that the IBM Online Community have to offer.

Yes people, it’s IBMConnect 2014. My flight leaves for Atlanta Friday night (My time) and lands Saturday morning (Florida time). By Saturday 12:00pm I will be dropped off at the Swolphin (Swan and Dolphin), finding a place to keep my luggage, and venturing forth (to the Boardwalk I think) to meet and greet some of the greats.

What makes my week at IBMConnect that much more special, is that I am proud to call myself an IBM Champion for the 2nd year running. Yay for me and yay for the other 80+ champions that were chosen, especially those new to the Title :)

Another special milestone is I get to co-present a session at IBM Connect with Mr Marky Roden. This will be my first real session at IBMConnect and I can feel the nerves already. Last year I had the honor of facilitating a Birds Of A Feather Session, but next week I’m on stage baby!!!

When is the Session?

BP209: IBM Worklight: Going From XPages Mobile to Native Mobile Applications

Dolphin Southern Hemisphere I – Thursday Jan 30th – 11:15 AM – 12:15 PM

What is the Session about?

I’m glad you asked, and the answer is….*cough cough*…Mobile. And not just mobile, but IBM Worklight. Marky and I will be highlighting some of the awesomeness that is Worklight, as well as demonstrating a mobile app we developed to integrate with an XPages Application. Join us in our session and see how you can use your XPages knowledge in a mobile development environment.

My message to those attending IBMConnect

People of IBMConnect, I cannot stress this enough….”Connect, Connect, Connect”. Do not be afraid to introduce yourself and build the social chain. If you don’t know where to start…it’s simple…watch out for those with an “IBM Champion” badge of some sort (Blue I think). Part of the reason they are Champions is their willingness to engage and help others. It’s the perfect place to start.

Then, there’s Mr Bleed Yellow himself….Mat Newman. If you need a hug (we all need a hug sometimes), just introduce yourself. He will be spotting a touch of yellow :)

Finally, try your best to attend some the Social events. There are too many to mention. If you use Twitter, there will be value in following these hashtags:

I’ll see you all in a couple of days. Get some rest :)

TiDomino is now an Idea Space on

Firstly, a big thanks to Mr Bruce Elgort for creating a category on for TiDomino.

For those who aren’t aware…TiDomino is a JavaScript module that allows Appcelerator Titanium developers to use IBM Domino programming patterns to structure local data sets and integrate with IBM Domino and XWork Applications. is an online social site that uses the power of “crowd-sourcing” to rank ideas and allow the best ideas to rise to the top. (NOTE: IdeaJam is available as a product for companies that are interested. Speak to Mr Bruce Elgort or Click here for more info)


To date, there have been 83 downloads of TiDomino from OpenNTF. I published the very first version on the 29th November 2013 and provided a 2nd release on the 13th December. The 2nd release was motivated by a suggestion that Sean Cull raised during his testing of TiDomino.

Now, I already have my To Do list for the next release of TiDomino, which I’m targeting for February, once IBMConnect is over and the dust has settled.

However, moving forward, I really want to urge everyone who’s interested in this community product, to raise ideas and suggestions on IdeaJam. I would love nothing more than to turn this into an Uber product that makes sense for everyone in terms of usability and time saved on programming.

I, myself will be listing all the ideas I currently have for this product. I look forward to everyone’s feedback and involvement on this. I’ll see you on the other side!!
