Hello all!


The past 6 weeks have been pretty amazing and I have learned a lot of new things. 

The last week was kinda smooth is what I'd say. I worked on the Comments component that will be added to the Individual Story page. A basic responsive UI is ready and it is working fine. Now we are working on implementing the exact logic for this component so that it supports all the features that any other similar platform offers. I also worked on the 'My Stories' page where users can view stories that they have submitted as well as stories that they are following (stories you have liked/commented). The PR for this was merged but the 'Following' section logic is yet to be done because its backend hasn't been created yet. Once the comments section work is finished followed by the 'liking' mechanism I'll work on this section and complete it. Other than this I worked on resolving several UI related issues that emerged when the backend connectivity was added.

I did not face any major issue this week as a lot of the work was done by my partner this week. All the issues were resolved easily over a small video call and I think we are working at a decent pace.

Now, I'll be working on the Comments section and ensure that all of its logic is finished by the end of this week. Also, I'll work on adding the 'like' feature on the story page. If I get time then I'll also work on the 'Timeline' of every story.
