Weekly Check-in #13

Published: 08/23/2020

Part of the Journey is the end unless its Open Source!

Hello and welcome to my final weekly check-in. Today officially marks the end of  the coding period for GSoC 2020. I enjoyed every bit of it. This was a life-changing experience for me and now I observe and interpret everything from a different perspective altogether. I have grown into a better developer and a person since GSoC. I would like to thank all my mentors and especially Serge for his immense support and mentorship. I would love to contribute to fury even after GSoC is over but unfortunately my semester break is over so I wont be as active as I was during the summer.

Now, regarding work I will be sharing my progress with the File Dialog UI component. The official repository of my sub-org can be found here.

What did you do this week?

This week I worked on the File Dialog UI component. Fury previously had a FileMenu component which could browse through the file system but we needed a dialog like implementation for it so that its easier for the users to read and write files during runtime. I tried implementing a simple design for it. It specifically has two modes, one for saving files and the other for writing files. The implementation can be demonstrated as follows:

Open Dialog:

Save Dialog:

What is coming up next?

Next week I will start with my final GSoC documentation and code submission. I will also try to implement the tests and tutorials for File Dialog or any further changes requested by my mentors. If I am not able to finish it within the next week, I will get it done after GSoC.

Did you get stuck anywhere?

I did not face any major issues this week.

Thank you all for your love and support. ❤️😄
