  • Day 60 - Eureka!! A Breakthrough in Issue#676!

    Team Twitches (OpenFarm) [2016] — at September 27, 2016 19:59 UTC

    FINALLY, finally, FINAAAAALLLLLY! We have a breakthrough in Issue#676. After weeks of pondering over the tagging system, and trying to make the ng-tags-input customizable enough to be used in OpenFarm, we were able to achieve what we trying to do!!!

    What Was Done

    • Read and learned a lot about $scope and $watch in AngularJS
    • Learned about mutations in Rails. The services between a model and controller
    • Implemented a function for loading and saving tags


    • Improve the listing in the autocomplete
    • Customize the CSS of the autocomplete to match OF's color scheme
    • Remove some errors appearing on the console

    Yayayay! :D

    Team XYZ (Keystone) [2016] — at September 27, 2016 08:26 UTC

    We continued working on visualization task, and are able to pull out data for options although the format it renders in is not the best, so we still have to work on that. As a part of our React dive-deep learning, we have also scheduled a full-day React workshop with our coach Josef on Wednesday where we plan to build a small app and learn more about React-way of building web stuff. We are also planning to organize a "Good bye RGSoC" party together with our coaches and members of Women in Tech Prague meetup.

  • Sept 26th - Monday:

    Team Hackbrighters (Lektor CMS) [2016] — at September 27, 2016 05:48 UTC

    Today we started to tackle Lektor issue #245, error handling for file attachments with '@' symbol. There's a larger issue about how file attachments are handled by Lektor. A user can't change the file names currently, so the file IDs need to be valid. We'll try to tackle this last issue, but we have limited time with our coaches. We tracked down the files and functions that we need to debug via the traceback messages on two different issues filed about file attachments. This reminds us that when filing issues that we need to give as much information as possible to a maintainer. We hypothesize that we'll need to either make changes either to the or the files. The addattachment() function raises a Bad Edit error in the and is_valid_id() triggers a boolean value to check if an id name is in a valid format. -
    We're debating where to do the check for for invalid symbols. The error was raised in the database b/c the @ is reserved symbol for a virtual marker. The error should have been raised by a different function likely during the file attachment process. We think we'll need to add a validation screen in add_attachment() and use is_valid_id() to raise the error. We're hoping to consult with coach Gavin tomorrow, and maybe he can give us his expert opinion on this approach.

    We started to prioritize the tasks we need to get done before the end of our grand adventure. Fingers crossed that we get it all done!

  • Day 60 - Our last week

  • Day 59: D-4

    Team JaM (Servo) [2016] — at September 27, 2016 00:17 UTC

    Things we did:

    • Body
      • Spent the morning (!!) rebasing Body on top of master (did it the hard way using rebase the first time, until Jeena suggested I just reset and cherry-pick my commits on top...the latter way had only a few merge conflicts as opposed to a LOT). And a little rewriting to get things to compile. Still need to implement the BodyTrait for More tests are passing now!! Yay :)
    • Fetch
      • Hmm, homu tests kept failing. Web platform tests related to cors/ and redirect/ seemed to fail intermittently, so we decided to skip those tests for now.
    • Package Data Algorithm
      • The parser for body when MIMEType is "multipart/form-data" is not clearly defined, so I decided to skip it for now.
    • General
      • We started writing our end-of-summer blog post. So sad!

    Things we learned:

    • git cherry-pick is sometimes easier than git rebase
    • git clean -f -d gets rid of untracked files and directories. I used this today right before a git reset.


    • Body
      • The JSON function still does not work. getting error: WebIDL.WebIDLError: error: Unresolved type '<unresolved scope>::JSON'
    • Test Curation
      • Go through the new tests, and categorize them.
