What did you do this week?

I completed fixing some bugs in the examples in the lecture files, created the github pages build and made a pull request to check progress. I started working on creating the assignments and adding them to the existing build topic wise.

What is coming up next week?

I am going to try and finish making up the assignments and then run the complete build and check for bugs/errors. Then, if possible, I will add the assignments to the github pages build to check progress.

Did you get stuck anywhere?

Nope there was no such major point where I got stuck.

What did you do this week?

I added demonstrative examples using the activcode, codelens and datafile components of runestone, along with few codeblocks wherever necessary. I embedded the videos, and added disqus comment boxes in each lecture files. I also formatted the text and images so that they are more compatible with the components and to improve readability. 

What is coming up next week?

  1. I am going to make a website using github pages so as to check the current progress.
  2. I am going to start working on adding and creating the assignments and unit tests using Runestone components.

Did you get stuck anywhere?

Yes, I got stuck at two points, mainly because of incompatibility of some of the Runestone components with python libraries like tkinter, pygame, json and urllib, and because of database connection problem due to which I was not able to use the datafile component effectively. The former issue was due to the incompatibility of the framework to create examples which include these libraries, whereas the latter arose because the project is not present in any course, due to which it is not connected with the Runestone database/server. I am going to create issues for these two problems in the github repository and try to find a way to solve them.

Hello everyone! I am Atharva Kulkarni and this summer I am going to work on the PyZombis project under Python Argentina, which would involve creating a community course to learn Python in Spanish based on the original Brazilian MOOC ​Python para Zumbis created by​ Fernando Masanori. This is the first weekly post of this wonderful summer.

What did you do this week?

I read Runestone framework and Sphinx documentation, and went through the code of the project again. I created required virtual environments on my system and cleared some basic queries with the help of my mentor. Then I created the milestones and tickets in the GitHub repository of the project to check my progress.

What is coming up next week?

Next week, I will mainly do the following:

  1. Adding demonstrative examples in the .rst lecture files using Runestone framework.
  2. Adding comment boxes and embedding course videos.
  3. Formatting the text and images accordingly.

Apart from that, I will also try to go through the documentation of Docker, and using it create a actively integrated site to measure the progress of the project

Did you get stuck anywhere?

I got stuck while going through the documentation of Sphinx Internationalization, but with the help of my mentor, most of the queries were resolved.
