Weekly Check-In | GSOC'21 | #1

Published: 06/08/2021

Hello World!

I am Sundeep Chand, a Computer Engineering sophomore at Delhi Technological University. India. I am super-excited that I will be collaborating with our fantastic team of mentors and student developers, in contributing features to the EOS User Story Project.

What did I do this week?

After the kick-off meeting, we worked on migrating the projects from GitLab to GitHub. And my role was to configure GitHub Actions for the EOS User Story Project, to run the tests and deploy the website to GitHub Pages, as well as for the EOS Strapi project, to create a docker image of the strapi backend and upload it to the GitHub Container Registry. So I spent some time learning about GitHub Actions. Then I worked on migrating my Pull Requests from GitLab to GitHub. And the rest of my time was spent in collaborating with my GSOC partner, Harshita, in planning the execution of tasks and setting up the project board.

What is coming up next?

I will be working on implementing the search feature for the stories, which will include search by story title and search by author name. I will also be implementing the corresponding unit/end-to-end tests in Cypress.

Did I get stuck anywhere?

When I tried to introduce caching for node_modules in GitHub Actions, so that it does not install the node_modules again and again, I faced a strange issue that the cache did not work properly. After going through a few blog posts on caching I was able to solve the issue.

So that's all for this blog post. Looking forward to have a great time contributing new features to the EOS User Story project.

Thank you for reading!!
