Here’s a video of what I’ve been working on this semester: a checklist extension for Reviewboard!
Many thanks to the mentors, for always being responsive and crushing the obstacles that stood in my way. As has been said by others already, stuff goes so much smoother when you realize that there’s a great team of people eager to answer all your questions, however silly they may be.
There’s still important stuff to be worked out for the checklists, but I’ll be sticking to it until it’s all proper and ready for everyone to use.
CSS styling on dialog so I can post a decent “preview” video (Would drop to work instead on the stuff below)
Associate each checklist instance with a review in progress
Logic in the resource to retrieve said query
All being resolved quite quickly in the chatroom, thanks mentors!
End of semester is approaching for me; coming week is last week of classes, and then it’s finals week after that. I can and want to keep working on this until the end of May though
Set up webapi
Played with backbone front-end in a previous week, so will now add server interactions to allow checklists to persist
Having a hard time finding example code.
Respec’d checklist model to store all checklist items in a JSON field (discussed with Chip, more efficient and easy to link)
Questions / Roadblocks
Current: Figuring out WebAPIResource
Roadblocks: Distractions during the week. Should be over now.
Next: Continue trying to persist changes to database using WebAPIResource
Questions: Nothing specific :/
Just fsung and mentors left for rest of semester: might change meeting time
Currently trying to figure out WebAPIResource
m_conley tips on reading code: go bottom-up, get the magic out of the way
- Can add checklist items on client side using Backbone
- Figuring out WebAPIResource
Get checklist items to persist to server
Any tips on how to read code? I feel really slow having to trace all the dependencies.
