Danesh Dadachanji

  • Refactored marking state error message to be shown/hidden inside views rather than in the controller.
  • Implemented automatic change of marking state, it changes back to “Partial” if “Complete” is selected when a mark is nil.
  • Implemented respond_to in the API’s show method. It sends back a response depending on the user – JSON/XML/TXT.

Next Steps

  • API functional tests – lots of them!
  • Figuring out how to let the user choose the type of respone they want – it requires messing around with the HTTP header.


  • None – the last week is assignment free 😀
