Weekly Check-in #1

Published: 06/08/2021

Greetings, Python community!

Hi, I am Gavish, and this summer I am working to implementing an optional language detection library in dateparse and fixing issues related to search_date. This is the first of many upcoming weekly blog posts where I will describe in brief the work I have done in the previous week and my plans for the upcoming week.

1. What did you do this week?

From the beginning of the community bonding period, I am engaging with the community and exploring many different open-source libraries that could be implemented with the dateparser library. The rest of the time was spent on configuring a local development environment, exploring the library in-depth and understand tox.

2. What is coming up next?

In the next week, I am looking to create the preview PR for the optional language detection. I would also work on tests for the optional language detection, and if time permits will implement the setting for the language detection.

3. Did you get stuck anywhere?

Nope. I learned a lot from constant feedback from my mentors. It was an awesome week 😃.

Thank you for reading!
