Weekly Check-In #3

Published: 06/21/2021

Here is my weekly check-in for the second week.

What did I do this week ?

This week I worked on implementation of sharable links feature. This feature will allow the users to share the story page url across various platforms. Along with this they can also copy the url of the same. I used react-share library to achieve this functionality. Along with this I also revamped the mentions functionality introduced in the previous blog.

What I will do in the coming week ?

For this week I will work on tests for both the above mentioned functionalities along with leftover part of the mentions functionality.

Did I get stuck somewhere ?

Yes, the first thing I got stuck with for this week was to convert mentioned usernames into links. I am trying to fix this one.

Weekly Blog Post #2

Published: 06/14/2021

So the first week of GSoC is almost over and we are about to start with the second week.

Mentions Functionality

During this week I worked on the implementation of the frontend for mentions functionality. This functionality will allow users to mention any other user in the comments section of the story. To achieve the functionality, I have used react-mentions library. Initially, I faced some problems while fetching data of users for display but eventually I and Sundeep (my GSoC partner) figured it out. I also spent some time on my university exams this week. For the coming week I will be working on the tests for mentions functionality and the backend part of this functionality that will involve giving out notifications to the users. Along with this, I will also be working on implementation of a new feature, i.e Sharable links. This functionality will allow users to share stories on different social media platforms with just one click.
Looking forward to another amazing week ahead :)

Hey, I am Harshita Mangla, a second year Computer Science undergraduate from India. During Google Summer of Code, 2021 I would be working with EOS Design System on the project: User Story - Improvements and New Features.

About my Project

EOS User Story provides an interface to the users to share how they are using the product and relate to other users' stories and comment or vote them up. The project aims to add new features and improve on the existing ones.

What did I do in the community bonding period?

As decided in the meeting, all the projects were migrated from GitLab to GitHub. I migrated the User Story Repository. After that I and Sundeep (my GSoC partner) spent time on discussing and setting up GitHub Projects Board. After that I spent some time on migrating my pull requests from GitLab to GitHub.

What am I doing this week?

This week I am working on implementation of mention functionality that will let users to tag or mention other users in the comments section of the story. I will be writing tests for the same using Cypress.

Did I stuck anywhere?

No, I didn't stuck anywhere yet.
