We had a successful code sprint at Recent Changes Camp. We got lots of work done and spent time during the sprint and afterwards telling people about Calagator.

 

PARTICIPANTS

Lance Albertson, Reid Beels, Joe Cohen, Amy Farrell, Jesse Hallett, Igal Koshevoy, Leif Warner, and first-time participants Colin Curtin, Dhananjay Keskar, Bart Massey, Phil Tomson.


RESOLVED

The following changes have been merged into the main Calagator code base and deployed to production:

  • Issue 380 "Merge with_theming branch" -- This makes it possible for people to run their own personalized instance of the Calagator platform.
  • Issue 375 "upcoming.yahoo.com's imported events should not contain excessive linebreaks" -- We also refactored a dozen duplicated methods in our code that formatted things like descriptions.
  • Issue 384 "Merge dependency changes" -- This eliminated many bundled libraries and moved them to gems, and upgraded RSpec. WARNING: This change broke the environment and it's impossible to run the app without making some extra, undocumented changes -- these must be addressed and the documentation fixed soon as part of Issue 381.

 

BEGAN

  • Issue 381 "Fix documentation for setting up the application"
  • Issue 382 "Improve documentation of with_theming branch"
  • Issue 383 "Specs should be written for the with_my_events branch"
  • Issue 385 "Provide widget for displaying Calagator events on another site"

Thank you all for coming and helping out!

    Help
    • You can open and close cards in place. Just click on the
      4296 medium
      icon.
    • Use the menu above an edit box to make text bold, italics, bullet points; create headers (paragraph, Heading 1, Heading 2); etc.
    • All links require double brackets around them.
    • Named links require a vertical bar (|) between the link and the name.
    • Most HTML in normal cards will get stripped. To edit it, click on the HTML button at the right edge of the editing toolbar. Any HTML can be added using HTML cards (you'll have to be signed in to create/edit them).

    To learn more see the Wagn documentation. Common curiousities:

    If you have questions about using this wiki, you might reach someone live on Internet Relay Chat, or you can contact the Wagn guys by various means, or just ask your question here and someone will answer it shortly:


    Q: How do you communicate on a wiki like this - is there a space like MediaWiki's talk page?

    A: This is typically done in Wagn by including a +discussion card — fandom is an example here; for an explanation, see Common Wagn patterns. Of course you can also leave comments on the card itself, old-school wiki style.


    Q: How can I edit the Menu and Help cards?

    A: You can double-click in any card to edit it.


    Q: Is there notification for +discussion cards?

    A: Alas, not yet. It is high on our list.


    Q: How can I upload a pdf?

    A: Create a New Card (there's a link at the very top of every page), and set it's card type to File. Then click on the Browse... button to upload the pdf.


    Q: How do I edit a previous version to achieve a page revert? --MarkDilley

    A: In the Changes tab of every card you can go through different versions and click on Save as current when you find the version you want to revert to.


    Q: I'm an old member, what happened to my name and password?

    A: If you try to sign in, you'll see an interface to reset your password if you've forgotten it. If you don't remember what email address you used, leave a note here and we'll try to help.


    Q: How do I change my password?

    A: In the Options tab on your home card.


    Q: On the main page, after clicking "edit" I had to scroll way down (about 10 screens of blank) to find the "save" and "cancel" buttons. --PeteForsyth

    A: Known bug, but we hadn't ticketed it yet; thanks!


    Q: How do you sort a list alphabetically when some items are links and some are not? (The brackets count as a different character.) --Kristin Webb-Tomson

    A: Manually — in other words ignore the brackets, and copy & paste names to where they should go.


    What do you mean manually?
    you may use any programming language, and any sorting algorithm, with a if-then-else instruction!
