Improvements in Online Geometry viewer

Project Details

This project is really an umbrella term under which I'll make different improvements to the OGV. The list of improvements are proposed as below:

Documentation

The OGV currently does have very good documentation. I am proposing to complete to the documentation for both the users and the developer. This would go on in the background through out the duration of the project. Once I get familiarised with the code, I would start to document when ever I see it useful.

Update meteor to latest version

I would install the latest of meteor to the project and along with it, its compatible dependencies. (I have already done this in a fork, Just working out some kinks is left).

Port three.js to latest version

Just like meteor, I would update three.js to its latest version and make the changes needed to make it work smoothly. ( I have finished this too but is causing the kinks I was taking about).

Data not found error

When you run meteor for first time you get an error that says "Couldn't find a template named "dataNotFound" or "dataNotFound". Are you sure you defined it?"This happens when brl-cad is not installed on server. I would change this error statement to state this exact problem. And change the template to one of the objects.

Email server error

Make a required setting that requires the admin to set up an email server before the signup/login begins.

Edit link not working

Currently the edit link redirects to 404. I would look into it and remove the error.

CSS code improvement

This is a nice one. I would break the main css file into small ones with complete documentation so they are easier to understand and implement.

No error if upload failed

f due to some reason upload of the model fails, there's no error indicating that it has failed. I would look into it and work towards fing it.

Upload progress

I would add an upload progress bar that shows the upload progress.

Mediawiki oAuth

I would implement a login with mediaWiki into the OGV system.

Auto-position

I would create a function such that it automatically positions the object in the center and zoomed just enough to be visible completely.
