Community Bonding Period
(23rd April to 18th May)
- Got familiar with the modules and database schema from previous repository.
- Had a discussion with H.S. Rai(Project Mentor) about the infrastructure to be used. We settled on Django as a web framework for the project.
- Learnt Django by reading through books and building a couple of small applications with it.
- Set up the development repository on Github.
- Discussed about the deployment options on BRL-CAD servers. It already has Python and MySQL support, and since we manage it ourselves, it would be easy install new packages on it.
- Fixed a few bugs to get the database and parser portions fully working. The benchmark logs can now be parsed and indexed into the database from the command line.
- Built a Django app with jquery to support file uploads that let's users(Link to the code is here):
- Upload Benchmark logs
- Does validation checks
- allows the admin to view a list of files.
- 19th May(Monday): Started working on the plots app. Integrated the legacy database from previous repo with the models in the plots app.
- 20th May(Tuesday):' Continued the work with plots app, integrated both the databases(fileupload and benchmark) to a single database. Read the Django documentation on views and templates to refresh and understand a few details. Updated url mappings, and a simple admin interface for plots app.
- 21st May(Wednesday): I went through the tutorials on Highcharts and emulated a few examples. Created simple bar and line charts to understand the concept of series, axes and how the data is loaded via AJAX.
- 22nd May(Thursday): I decided to JSON as the data source for plots. This would require me to pass JSOn objects from view to templates. I went through the json module of python, particularly json.dumps and json.encode functions which will help in parsing JSON. I also thought about the types of plots I could generate from our app.
