Weekly Check-In #3

Published: 06/21/2021

What did you do this week?

I achieved the Brython module! :D you can try it here in an exercise I did that works with the Facebook API getting the profile picture. The mentors are reviewing my PR on this component that will help implement the advance exercises of the course. This PR changes the requirements of the project, so it uses my fork of Runestone that has the new option for active code blocks with Brython.

I also submitted a PR to Runestone Components repository. If it gets accepted and merged PyZombis will not have to reference my fork on its requirements which would be a great thing.

What is coming up next?

I started working on some upgrades the mentors suggested for the Brython option. Right now, the output displays an iframe with an embedded html page that shows the results. But when a Syntax error is made or the simple print() function is used, these results are shown on the browser console rather than the iframe. I look forward to having a console, that displays below the iframe the errors or logs that are written.

Did you get stuck anywhere?

I did not get stuck. I solved the issue I was struggling with last week, about the Runestone project and I ended up with a great outcome! I am happy with my achievements this week and I hope to keep this work rhythm up :)
