GSoC midterm eval
@CatQuest as lead of INST Reviews
I don’t have much news. Getting packed to head back to BCN tomorrow (from Canada visit).
I’ve been writing to pending users and answering client emails.
I think we have one new Gold sign-up.
Thanks to team members who continue to forward me contact info, from whatever source.
There is a lot of back and forth with the smallest and biggest supporters.
I hope I’m getting better at explaining our supporter system.
this week was spent in
finishing the track.scrobble & token fetching part
replaced some code with concise code and some PEP8 + pylint fixes
documented some functions and separated common code in native_API and compat_API into separate api_tools.py
and finished with generic XML -> JSON using the lastfm rules.
btw, this is the PR: https://github.com/metabrainz/listenbrainz-server/pull/82
I integrated my achievement system into the profile pages, and allow users to select which badges and titles they want to display on their page, also got a bunch of new achievements added to the system that all work properly
Got some sql stuff merged into master, and arranged new meeting times with Leftmost and LordSputnik for the coming weeks
I’ve been working on finishing up the track search dialog box.
Added a search box into that dialog, so one can search further without closing the dialog.
Added support for advanced query syntax for searching tracks from within Picard, though hacky.
Opened up a PR related to my work -> https://github.com/metabrainz/picard/pull/475
Here’s a screenshot of current state of the box -> http://imgur.com/kUkXagC FreeDB gateway
@Rob proposes to sunset the FreeDB gateway in 1 year, telling people to either update their client to use MB proper or use FreeDB proper. Until then, @chirlu will be given access to a Google VM for hosting it. @Rob will write a blog post about the sunsetting at a later point. GSoC midterm eval
