    BuddyPress Moderation & Album – Week #12 

    Final week, I was a bit nervous because the week before was not really productive as I said a week ago, but this week I did a huge amount of work and things seem to be in place.

    I’m doing also lot of documentation these days, features should be ok.

    A testable version of bp-album with gsoc features is in the wild, it’s still not stable but the part I’ve added as gsoc proj is almost good, some other parts need fixes/rewriting. Finally near to a stable release.

    Instead bp-moderation is pretty much ready for being released, first testers have appreciated it and I just finished writing the documentation on integration with other content types. Still some doc and checking and I’ll release it.

    Good luck everyone!

    API Stream Wrappers – Week 12 

    The final week is upon us 🙂 I’ve been spending my time refining and cleaning up the code, fixing grammatical mistakes in the documentation, and other remaining loose end. I took a crack at the wiki documentation to help ease understanding of the plugin and how it fits into the WordPress ecosystem. I’m also working on getting doxygen to whip up some nice documentation which I will eventually put on the GitHub project web site until a more permanent home is found.

    Come Monday (the firm pencils down date) I will tag the code and make sure Subversion is in sync. There’s still quite a bit to do before the true benefits of stream wrappers are realized, but that effort is out of the scope of this project and will continue onwards separately 😀

      I love Stream Wrapper. Thanks for taking care. I thought to write something that hooks on file:// just by default … 🙂

      That’s odd… I just got an email notification of your comment today… Yep, 2 years behind schedule.

      Wish I could spend more time on this, [school/life/loans and whatnot]. If you need to make any changes or find bugs in the code be sure to send a pull request on GitHub and I’ll get it incorporated at least. And if you have a plugin which depends on this one update the wiki to mention it.

    Not much to report this week. Wrapping up as the pencils down date approaches.

    I did further UI work with Jane on the home page. I also did some code polishing. I will wrap the week up by doing a final sweep of the code and then enjoying a vacation in the mountains of WV.

    I’m very happy with how the project went and will have a beta version available once it is at that level. Be expecting future updates and developments on the project outside of GSoC.

    Good luck everyone!

    BuddyPress Album – Week #11 

    This week has not been productive as the last one, mainly because the gasoline quest (due to a truck drivers strike it was almost impossible to find some gas here in Crete), two power outages and some network problems.

    I still managed to do something: finished the set of oEmbed media modules and started the local audio one.

    I found useful getid3 for gathering audio info and as it also detect content types of a good range of media files I’m integrating it with the content type detection class for when no other detection method are available (preferred ones are php fileinfo extension and the shell ‘file’ utility).

    I plan to prepare a testable bp-album version tomorrow or at most Saturday, (un)luckily I’ll be back in Italy by 36 hours so this weekend I can focus on finishing my gsoc projs.

    The template pack has been finished and I’ve tested it on a few different themes from the theme directory. It should be interesting to see how that is used and I’m glad that this feature was suggested.

    I also did my presentation on Friday. There were a lot of lurkers and a few questions asked.

    I’ve done the usual bug finding and fixing to make sure the code is solid.

    I have also been working with Jane on UI things. We have started on the home page and will continue to work on the other sections.

    BuddyPress Album – Week #10 

    This week has been pretty productive, although I’m currently in Greece with my friends :D.

    I’ve rewritten lot of the code of the multimedia part of bp-album to make it tidier and cleaner and I merged it with the not-gsoc-related features from other repo.

    As now the development repo of bp-album is on google code (see this post), I’m working there for the merge and other changes, but I always copy it to gsoc svn when there’s some important change related to gsoc.

    Next week I’ll work on both bp-album and bp-moderation, adding missing features, fixing known bugs and writing documentation.

    API Stream Wrappers – Week 10 

    Ah, there’s nothing like the smell of fresh tests in the morning. I submitted a couple of small hacks for WP Automated tests to add basic code coverage options. After looking through that code though I think it’s safe to say that it needs to be rewritten 😦 Hint hint for those looking into GSoC next year!

    You’ve probably already heard the announcement that PHP4 and MySQL4 support will be dropped in the near future. This is fantastic news on multiple levels–one of them being that stream wrappers require PHP5+, so this is good news indeed.

    This next week I’m going to finish off as much of the tests as I can and try to workaround the remaining shortcomings in the testing suite. Then I hope to toy around with some demonstration wrappers 🙂

    Last week was a pretty busy week involving  some personal things and also work things unrelated to GSoC.  Of course I do have updates for this!

    I talked with the UI team in the meeting last Tuesday and will do so again tomorrow to see how the mockups are coming along.  I also did further work on the template pack plugin. It is pretty much done and only needs another day or so of work. Hopefully once that is done I will have a finalized UI to work with and can get that part of the project completed. No new screenshots since the template plugin still pretty much functions like before.

    Have a good week everyone.

    API Stream Wrappers – Week 9 

    This week I hacked WP Automated Tests to add coverage reports using xdebug and PHPUnit. As of today roughly 75% of the lines of code, or half of the functions and methods, are covered with the unit tests. Of course, code coverage doesn’t mean that everything works just right, but it is very beneficial in increasing confidence in the code and pointing out possible weak areas that need attention.

    Coverage Report as of July 21, 2010

    Next week I’m going to divert my attention slightly to cleaning up the WP Automated Test modifications and submitting patches for that project. I’ll also be shoring up some of the weaker areas of coverage pointed out by the coverage report.

    Theme Support 

    I heard a request from a few people last week about making the project easier to theme/change the look of etc. Orignally this was just going to be just child theme support and perhaps a control panel for easily changing around some colors. Jane had the idea during one of our chats to make a plugin similar to the BuddyPress Theme Pack. The new plugin would attempt to make any theme IdeaPress compatible with no edits to add the support.

    I’ve been working on a plugin based on the BP Theme Pack which goes through the similar steps of moving new templates to the folder. I’ve also added new methods to add support for search features and the score box and the new features on single.php. I have also converted IdeaPress to a plugin with a theme bundled on top. This is how BuddyPress does it and it will make the work a little bit easier, allow me to support uninstall, etc.

    This has all turned out pretty nice so far. It still needs a little work to be called completed but it is getting there.

    Here are some screenshots of IdeaPress running on different themes:
