Weekly Check-in #1

Published: 05/30/2020


Hi everyone I am Abhay, I am a cse undergrad from India. I got selected in TERN sub-org to work on this summer. Tern is container analysis tool.
You can read my blog post here to learn more about it.
This first of many blog posts to come. So lets get started.

What did you do this week ?

I started working on creating UI for JSON reports generated by Tern. At first I used json2html library but that gave very ugly results :p. After that I decided to make a tree view for JSON data. I started writing recursive functions to generate the tree-view HTML report. I've opened a PR and making the changes requested by the mentors. I also had my first meeting with my mentors they are very helpful and supportive.

Did you get stuck anywhere ?

While writing the recursive code I struggled as the drop-down buttons didn't worked. Turns out ` <ul>`  tag cannot have another `<ul>` as its child. I found this with the help of html validator tool.

What is comping up next?

  • I have another meeting with my mentors.           
  • Make changes to the PR requested by mentors.           
  • Start working on golang modules metadata extraction.
