Greetings, People of the world!

Got a little late posting this blog. Was stuck with a couple of things but didn't let that prevent me from coding.

1. What did you do this week?

So last week I worked on adding preview option that enabled user to preview all customized icons on the modal when multiple icons are customized. Along with this I made a couple of other changes in the icon editor modal according to the suggestions and inputs from my teammates and mentors.

2. What did you do this week?

This week I will be working on adding customization feature for animated icons and begin with making a couple of animated icons too.

 

3. Did you get stuck anywhere?

No I did not. things are going pretty smooth now on.

Greetings, People of the world!

This was last week before the second evaluation and this week has also been amazing.

1. What did you do this week?

This week, I worked on a change my mentors suggested. Earlier when a user downloaded a customized icon, a zip file was created when it is downloaded. So as per suggestion I will be making changes so the icon is downloaded directly in the image format selected. This was for the single icons. Later I also added the feature to customize multiple icons. And now a user can customize and download multiple icons . The customization remains same for all icons. I also made a couple of animated icons.

2. What did you do this week?

This week I will work on adding preview option to preview all customized icons on the modal when multiple icons are customized. And then I plan to begin with animated icon customization support. Means after that feature, customization will be available for animated icons too.

3. Did you get stuck anywhere?

No I did not.

Greetings, People of the world!

This week was full of learning. Like seriously I learnt a lot this week specially because I got stuck on something which took me while to figure out.

1. What did you do this week?

This week I added the feature to download customized single icon in PNG format. Along with the image format, the user can also select different sizes of the customized PNG after this feature.

 

2. What is coming up next?

This week, I will be working on a change my mentors suggested. Right now when a user downloads a customized icon, a zip file is created when it is downloaded. So as per suggestion I will be making changes so the icon is downloaded directly in the image format selected.

 

3. Did you get stuck anywhere?

Yes like I said earlier, I did. The problem was with the icons picker API. The async behaviour was causing a problem when I was making png files from svg and zipping them. But eventually after a lot of researching and trying out different ways it was solved

Greetings, People of the world!

First week after our first evaluation was nice. I tried speeding up things. It's been an amazing week.

1. What did you do this week?

This week I added the feature to rotate an icon as well as to flip an icon as a part of customization. Thus now a user can rotate, flip or change colour of an icon according to their requirement. The customized icon are available to be downloaded as SVG only as of now.

 

2. What is coming up next?

This week, I will be add the feature to download these customized icons as PNG and along with it I will try to get started with multiple icon customization too.

 

3. Did you get stuck anywhere?

Nope, not this weekcheeky

Greeting, People of the world!

Our first evaluation took place last week and guess what? I passed it!!! Well, I am pretty excited and happy about it. wink

 

1. What did you do this week?

I built the modal for colour customization for a single icon and did little edits here and there. Now it works perfectly. 

 

2. What is coming up next?

This week, I will be implementing logic for icon rotation in icons picker API and also added buttons for rotation on the icons editing Modal.

 

3. Did you get stuck anywhere?

Yes, a little when a few icons were not getting customized. Well, it was because of their SVG file having a style tag. This issue was resolved with the help of my mentors.
