Weekly Blog Post #1

Tern can generate container analysis reports in different formats like json, txt, yaml etc. but the output genrated by tern's json report was very hard to read. So my task was to render to this json data beautifully in a html page which is more readable and intuitive. I made the code for the html page generation.

So this week I mostly worked on changing the UI of html page as requested by mentors.

My mentors suggested to preserve the json report generation of tern as it is now and create new format which will give reports in html.

So now users can choose html as a format from the command line and generate html reports for their container super easy to read.

Tern uses Stevedore as its plugin manager which makes it super easy to create new plugins.

But I still have a little code clean up to do. I look forward to discuss with it my mentors on our next meet.

In the upcoming week I will start working metadata extraction of glolang package managers.
