Alex:

Completed the wiki page for the help system, which describes the details about how to add new help boxes and embedded documentation to new pages.

Christopher:

We worked on issue #1412. We still need to figure out whether the link is what we want for every users (admin, TA and students).

Ope:

Worked on issue #1412. Fixed the url generated for links in the assignment drop down menu. The links are now directing the user to the appropriate page. Will create pull request once testing is completed. Worked with Alex on the Wiki page.

Rafael:

Working with Zach and Tiago on the git back-end. I got stuck on a bug with Rugged and ruby… maybe I’ll need to reinstal it and update my ruby to a newer version. Going to work on that during the weekend.

Zach

Upgraded ruby from 1.9 to 2.0. Created commit for time-based functions (which are still under consideration for their implementation).

– add another style of help icon for title.

Ope

– Worked with Alex and Chris on new designs for the Help system

– Fixed a minor bug on the help system implementation on the Assignment page that caused the help messages to be rendered incorrectly on other pages using the same form, besides ‘Add Assignment’. Help system implementation now moved to form level for this content.

Tiago 

This Week: Started studying gitbackend code, solved issues 1324 and 1388

Road Blocks: The integration between gitolite gem and rugged gem.
Next Week: I’m still studying gitolite server and rugged and how to change svn code to make it work
Also meet up with Rafael and Zach to discuss our approach on the git backend. I’m wrinting a document to help this implementation, but for the moment is in portuguese and local, as long as I make it work, I’ll update the blog

Help System Update

without comments

Here are some of the latest screen shots from the help system. We have implemented both tool tip boxes that will show up next to specific fields and also larger boxes that can be displayed below a title or in open space on the page. We have also changed the color of the box. We are going through the individual pages and deciding where tool tips and larger boxes are needed. Any feedback would be great, also if you have a suggestion where embedded documentation is needed and whether a large box with a summary of how something works or a short tool tip is better, let us know.

Add Assignment

This page is using the larger box on the right hand side. This box will enlarged based on the amount of text it contains.

Test Framework

This page is using both larger box and tool tip boxes.

Status Reports for April 3rd

Rafael S. Padilha:

 This Week:

I started to search and read about the git backend.

Next Weeks:

I’ll continue to study/understand the git backend and I’ll begin to work with Zach and Tiago on it.

Zach Munro-Cape:

 This Week:

Was able to implement a walker such that it can find commits based on time as well as files based on time.

Roadblocks:

Integrating it such that it can be tested from a test file.

Next Week:

Make up for the week I missed due to final assignments.

Shenlong:

This Week:

About finished functional spec for tagging.

Next Week:

Wrap up and finish spec.

Gillian & David:

This Week:

Worked on issue 1404. Looked into how rails includes javascript files. We think the issue may be related to the path of files and the revision number in which they were committed. The program is calling on certain javascript methods but we’re not seeing them actually being run when the bug occurs.

Next Week:

Try to finish figuring out exactly what is going on in issue 1404 and make a fix for it.

Roadblock:

Needing to ramp up on our knowledge of rails server structure and how Assets/Javascript files get included in order to be able to rule out possible reasons for issue 1404.

Jeremy:

This week:

Continued work on #1402. Worked with Andrew and Sheng on finishing the functional specs for the tagging system.

Roadblocks:

None.

Next week:

Put the final touches on for the functional specs with Andrew and Sheng before our semester ends.

Tiago

This week:

   Finish some pull requests unfinisheds

 Roadblocks:

  I updated my svn but shared libraries were not updated. I had to revert the instalation of svn.

Next week:

  Study gitbackend
