Hello,

What did you do this week?

I was looking for a alternate way to convert RST to MD without using Pandoc. Well, there is no current solution without pandoc. So I have to display as raw RST without convertion. I have added test coverage for the code. Added docs for the notebook download feature.

What is coming up next?

Tests needs some improvement. My mentor gave me feedback on my tests and how important the test are. I'm working towards merging the current PR.

Did you get stuck anywhere?

Finding the solution for converting RST to MD was quite challenging.

Hello,

What did you do this week?

I have added more details to project. It's ready to work. Some parts needs little attention. I have to convert docs written in RST to Markdown.

Did you get stuck anywhere?

Yes. As my first phase is almost ready, now I have to write tests. I have previously create test for different PR, which was a small one. I'm confused for which parts to add test. I've asked my mentors for help.

What is coming up next ?

I have to fill some more details and add tests. Possibly also start the next phase of project.

Hello,

Pandemic is continuing its rage. This week is no different than the previous week. Almost everyone is drifting through time-space, without doing anything. Just rewinding the old memories.

 What did you do this week?

 I almost finished the prototype for generating the notebook. I'm waiting for a more detailed review from the mentors for further improvement.

 Did you get stuck anywhere?

Nope, So far so good

What is coming up next?

Add more modifications after the review of mentors. I'm also planning to explore metaclasses in python as it may improve the code. also planning to develop the other parts of the project.

 

“Metaclasses are deeper magic than 99% of users should ever worry about. If you wonder whether you need them, you don’t (the people who actually need them know with certainty that they need them, and don’t need an explanation about why).”

Hello World,

It's me, Abi again. Hope everyone is safe, what a challenging time to live!. Corona cases are increasing day-by-day here. Many restrictions which were held previously been lifted. Individuals should take necessary precaution for their own health and for the community as whole. I would recommend to read "The Plague" by Albert Camus, which deals with similar conditions as now.

What did you do this week ?

Mostly creating a prototype to get more Idea about the project. Also the PR I was stuck last week was merged. My mentor improved the internal testing infrastructure, thus the issue was resolved.

Did you get stuck anywhere ?

No, But I have some more doubts to get cleared in next week.

What is coming up next ?

I got the feedback for the prototype, So I would be building a better version next week.

"There's no question of heroism in all this. It's a matter of common decency. That's an idea which may make some people smile, but the only means of fighting a plague is — common decency." - Albert Camus (The plague)
