17:07 DAWacker <DAWacker!~David@yacht.rit.edu> has joined #sugar-meeting
17:08 walterbender well... shall we begin the weekly updates?
17:08 axitkhurana: want to start us off?
17:09 axitkhurana Sure :)
17:09 This week I wrote a python client for Moksaya's API
17:09 https://github.com/axitkhurana/gmoksaya
17:10 Using tch__'s grestful library
17:10 Also, in the process, made a couple of fixes  to grestful
17:10 walterbender tch__: any comments?
17:11 tch__ axitkhurana: I am planning on testing it :)
17:11 walterbender axitkhurana: are you on track for completing your project?
17:11 Cerlyn <Cerlyn!~cerlyn@173-12-75-9-miami.hfc.comcastbusiness.net> has joined #sugar-meeting
17:12 axitkhurana walterbender: I think so, next would be to use this client to integrate it as a service in social cloud.
17:12 and document the changes
17:12 llaske <llaske!~wircer@AVelizy-154-1-105-194.w90-2.abo.wanadoo.fr> has joined #sugar-meeting
17:12 tch__ axitkhurana: you should definitely add some videos to the project's documentation, so show how this works
17:12 walterbender bonjour Lionel
17:13 llaske hi all
17:13 axitkhurana tch__: Sure, I'll do that.
17:14 walterbender all sounds good. thx axitkhurana
17:14 surajgillespie: you wanna report?
17:14 surajgillespie yup :)
17:15 Finally managed to the get the object chooser bits into sugar web.
17:15 Although i was a bit slow on it, it was time well spent.
17:16 It served its main purpose, i.e testing the sugar datastore api.
17:16 Managed to unearth a few bugs in the current api.
17:16 Here is a sample to play with, https://github.com/surajgillespie/Object-Chooser
17:17 Also, getting my blog ready about my work over the past month. Will post a link to the group after this meeting.
17:17 walterbender surajgillespie: thanks for hanging in there... gettting your code upstreamed can take patience
17:18 surajgillespie :)
17:18 As for next week, I'll try to get in the preview field bits into sugar web.
17:19 http://html2canvas.hertzen.com/ was a suggestion put forth by Manuel,
17:19 so we could handle the preview stuff on the JS side rather than python.
17:19 walterbender nice
17:20 surajgillespie and that's pretty much it from my side
17:22 walterbender any comments?
17:22 boredomist: wanna go next?
17:23 CDeLorme: ?
17:24 CDeLorme yes
17:24 Early this week I hit an unexpected wall and the network stack is still incomplete.
17:24 I was unable to catch incoming channels, which is a required feature since Call channels use the same catch process and are used to wrap GStreamer.
17:24 Fortunately I have been in contact with smcv for the past three days working through this.
17:24 My assumption that the dbus service is shared was incorrect, it looks for the first registered handler and ignores the others.
17:25 decause shoutout walterbender for the help connecting us
17:25 walterbender #telepathy to the rescue?
17:25 CDeLorme The problem is that fedora and debian have built-in clients with handlers to receive messages.
17:25 yes smcv has been on it for three days with me now
17:25 It's not working yet, but close.
17:25 So my system needs to override the handlers with an observer and claim the channels.  I am working on testing this now, [latest test code](http://paste.fedoraproject.org/37632/37848263/).
17:25 I plan to put in some cycles this weekend to try and finish solving this puzzle, and I will be putting together a blog post and adding all the details to the documentation.
17:26 walterbender CDeLorme: this sort of thing is always tricky
17:26 CDeLorme Yeah I also have been slow to test it because it requires running two machines, sending works great.
17:27 Given the time remaining for GSOC I may have to choose between documentation of services or finished code, but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.  Since HFOSS classes just started up I may see if there is interest there to carry on the work after GSoC is done.
17:27 If that's the case I'd rather supply helpful documentation than a finished but rather incomprehensible final product.
17:28 decause CDeLorme: hopefully it doesn't come to one or the other
17:28 gonzalo_odiard_ CDeLorme, anyway, should be good have something testeable
17:28 walterbender even if it is not full featured
17:29 CDeLorme I have no doubt that I can finish at least partial functionality
17:30 walterbender great
17:30 mzepf: your turn?
17:30 mzepf walterbender: Yes.
17:31 I spent most of the week on the Primitives for the 'while' and 'until' blocks.
17:31 It wasn't easy, but they work now, and they're exportable.
17:32 I also finished transforming all 'old format' Primitives to the 'new format'.
17:32 I.e. everything that worked and was exportable ca. 3 weeks ago works and is exportable again.
17:33 Then I started adding new Primitives, e.g., for the 'random', 'int', 'chr', 'stop stack', 'wait', and 'sandwich clamp' blocks.
17:33 I'm now done with the first 6 palettes from the left in TA, so there are 4 more palettes missing.
17:34 I doubt I'll be able to make *all* blocks exportable by the end of the GSoC,
17:34 but I'll try to cover the more important ones, especially the 'show' block.
17:35 walterbender mzepf: I plan to demo your project at Turtle Art Day (October 12) in Paraguay :)
17:35 mzepf walterbender: Great!
17:35 walterbender mzepf: and you should go to Pycon next year and demo it.
17:36 (the original idea for the project came up at Pycon last year)
17:36 mzepf: maybe we can try to do a small pilot study to see if users can actually use it
17:37 mzepf walterbender: That would be great.
17:37 walterbender mzepf: I will think about the study design
17:37 mzepf walterbender: Oh, that reminds me I still don't have an 'export' button inside Sugar.
17:38 I only have one in the GNOME version.
17:38 walterbender mzepf: that is easy enough to add... just like the Logo one
17:38 I can make you an icon...
17:38 decause mzepf: +1 on going to PyCon
17:38 mzepf walterbender: That would be very kind. Thanks!
17:38 decause walterbender: have you heard anything about the EDU summit (somewhat off topic, sorry)
17:39 walterbender decause: EduJam?
17:39 decause PyCON EDU Summit (you keynoted last year's)
17:39 has the name changed?
17:39 walterbender oh... Pycon EDU
17:39 decause I'll take that as a no :P
17:40 walterbender to be honest, I have been so busy, I have not been paying attention
17:40 after Sugar 100 and Turtle Art Day, I will come up for air
17:40 where is PyCON next year?
17:40 decause walterbender: kk. I'm going to email last year's organizers, and let them know FOSS@RIT is interested in running point if they need us
17:41 walterbender: Montreal :) :) :)
17:41 much closer to MA/NY
17:41 walterbender not so far for me...
17:41 I will try to attend
17:41 decause hopes to be bringing van-loads of students this time
17:42 walterbender back on topic... anyone else have anything to report this week?
17:42 decause didn't mean to get the train off the tracks here, I'll talk to you more about it during not meeting with you walterbender
17:42 walterbender decause: I'm the one who brought up PyCON :)
17:43 DAWacker walterbender: ya, I have some info on badges and the Sash activity
17:43 surajgillespie has quit IRC
17:44 walterbender well.. thanks all.
