At the code sprint, I fiddled around with github and set up backup forks of reviewboard and rbtools. I addressed issue 495, submitted a code review and it was accepted into master.
I picked the Extension Scaffold Generator student project from the wiki, and delved into the sample extensions here (RBBugTracker), and here (toy extensions). After creating a simplified example extension, I modelled the script after postreview.py. The file generation code uses Jinja2 templates, and wrote up a version of the script that could generate extensions that could be installed; after some tweaking, I have submitted a code review.
My next steps are to:
- Figure out what other options might be useful for extensions
- Flesh out the documentation on the wiki article for building extensions
