Hi! Today June 21 I begin my third week for GSoC 2021. I am loving this experience so far.
Now, I'm going to answer 3 questions regarding my work last week, what I struggled with, and
what I will focus on this week.
What did I do this week?
In my last post, I mentioned I was working on fixing the existing quizzes of the project. I kept doing that, and I finished. I started fixing some lectures. By fixing I mean:
- Formatting all python code with
- Changing static snippets to
- Creating some exercises with automating grading using
- Creating some web tests (where needed), with
Did I get stuck anywhere?
Yes I did. As I've mentioned over the past posts, we use
pytest-playwright as our web tester.
I've been coding easy tests for the quizzes, and I thought that was enough. Until I got to program a test for
a lecture that involved writing into a prompt box. I got stuck in there beacause I
playwright had a special way to deal with dialog prompts. So I had to search in their
documentation for an answer, and I got one.
Here's the piece of code I was looking for:
def test_TWP18_ac_5(page): # Deal with prompt box def handle_dialog(dialog): dialog.accept("una palabra") # Code to go to TWP18 page, do the exercise and run it. # Fill prompt box page.on("dialog", handle_dialog)
What is coming up next?
Last Saturday (June 19), the team got together in a videocall to discuss what we've done so far
and what is coming up. So, now that I've finished with the quizzes and the easy lectures, some of which
are awaiting review, I will begin my second milestone. It consists on refactoring a lecture
that involves accesing some APIs. My idea is to fix one existing exercise that uses Reddit API, and
to create two exercises using two different public and easy to manipulate API's. Meanwhile, I'll continue
searching for ways to make the SQL lecture work.
