Lightning Out off Platform Example

Due to the limited documentation out there for the BETA Lightning Out functionality I am posting my code for others to benefit.

Please note that after extensive research I have come to the conclusion that off platform functionality is broken, but executing the code from within a naked VF page should work. The issue is that the bootstrapping process does not adjust the URLs for the dynamically loaded scripts and styles sheets - the JS assumes it is still run from within a SF org domain. A case with SF has been filled but if I am incorrect on my conclusion please comment.

Even if one patches the script/style URLs loading at runtime further errors manifest from withing aura_prod.js

Salesforce's 'Lighting Out' Example

Prior to using the below code ensure you have wrapped your lighting component into an App, setup a connected App, and CORS whitelisted your domain - afterwards copy and paste the below into your HTML file to be served from a server.

<div id='lightning'></div>
<script src=""></script>
<script src="https://<REMOVED>"></script>
sAccessToken = location.hash.match(/access_token=([^&]*)/) ? location.hash.match(/access_token=([^d]*)/)[1] : null;
sInstanceURL = location.hash.match(/instance_url=([^&]*)/) ? decodeURIComponent(location.hash.match(/instance_url=([^&]*)/)[1]) : null;
if (sAccessToken ==  null) {
  window.location.href = '<YOUR CONNECTED APP'S SECRET KEY>&redirect_uri=https://localhost'
  ,function() {
        ComponentHeading: 'Header',
      ,function(cmp) {
        //do some stuff

How to child proof a fireplace

DIY - Do it yourself fireplace child guard Our wonderful 8.5 month old Sofia has become a crawling race car with an untamed thirst for exploration. And so with the cold nights approaching we needed to child proof the fireplace. This however proved to be more difficult than would reasonably expect, I've checked the local Toys "R" Us, Walmart, and even a Canadian Tire with no success for a ready to use product. Internet search was more fruitful and returned a few online stores one could order from, however in all honestly they didn't look too sturdy to me. So I build my own relatively quickly and inexpensively. Materials needed is a privacy plastic lattice - the smallest hole pattern - a few screws and anchors; tools needed are a drill, and a handsaw if you don't have the lattice cut at the store - that’s it. The construction consits of screwing the lattice into the wall and the final product is easiest explained through following pictures. Feel free to +1 this po…
