I know. I know. Lets face it. I’m not gonna come up with good headings this year also.
So, I’m back at uni now, and (proper) work begins.
I start by fixing up the issue with the SRS reader, caused by past year’s files being tarred up. Oh yes, that took some fixing. That threaded downloader is tricky to deal with.
Now, to break a break from SRS (still I have to fix the missing columns issue), I start with the website. For starters, I need to take an input date, and serve the magnetogram plot of that day with AR locations marked on it. Simple, right ?
Deployment server hates you.
The website is a Flask app, deployed using dokku. The app works fine on my PC, but on the server, hehe. It’s still not working as it should, as plotting the magnetogram takes > 60 seconds (coz of downloading and stuff) and the timeout issue still persists.
Well, its deployed on now.dev.sunpy.org. Construction in progress 😛
I know. A better heading must be given. 😆
So the Coding Period has begun, aaaaand it’s time for me to head home from uni, after a long time. 🙂 😛
This means there was a lot of travelling, eating and lazing around …….. 😎
Hence, very little work was done in this fortnight.
Very little = Fixing number in SRS files with dates after 2002-06-15 = Adding 10,000 to a row
Ah, so 3 evaluations this time.
So for most part of May I was busy with my research work lol. 😳
Point to be noted : DavidPS pronounces my name correctly (unlike Cadair, and, well many other people).
During the second half of May, I was tinkering with Flask and I learnt (a little bit) about how sample Flask apps work so that I hit the ground running (calm down, its not a disaster).
I also was trying different things in the magnetogram PR as my axis alignment wasn’t always right.
Right, so, as the community bonding period comes to an end, it has been decided (well, at least I think so) that the webapp will be deployed on Heroku.
First I plan to get the magnetogram working on the app, and then build on top of that as time goes on.
Oh, and in case you thought doge memes are useless, take a look at the front page of The Guardian below.
After deliberating on whether to take part as a mentor ( 😮 calm down) or a student in this year’s GSoC, I decided that it would be better if I applied as a student. Mostly because a large part of my project this year is directly related to last year’s project.
I know, I know. Unmerged work. That is also one of the reasons. 😛
So I have been selected this year for the Sun, Right Now! project which really grabbed my attention once Cadair explained to me what it was. XD
Really looking forward to working on it.
Oh, and one more thing. I’m done with cats.
It’s doge time !! 😎
Final Evaluation (Students) begins and I have done ZERO documentation 😎
So, frantic work ensues, Cadair is disturbed multiple times while he is on vacation, and I manage to get (most of) my documentation done by 22nd.Finally I make my product submission, 1 day before the deadline 😀
Product Submission link : GSoC product submission
Now I await the final verdict…
So, the final stretch is on.
Now I start implementing the download functionality after fixing the path issue.
So, after trying for 4 hours, it works !!!
For one client. Out of eight. EIGHT.
It seems EVERY client has it’s own issues while adding its entries or reading its FITS headers.
So over the entire fortnight, I fix each client’s case, one by one.
Aaand I scramble to get it done just in time : [unidown] Download from fido search result implemented
Oh, and while I was doing that, I also managed to get this done : Now the database is displayed as an astropy table
The second PR makes displaying the database contents very easy and neat now 😀
Now, after the coding period ends, I head into the evaluation period. Having done ZERO documentation.
So Cadair asks : How’s it going ?
Okay. Time to get back to work.
Now was the time for implementing the downloading and adding database entries from a Fido search result. But wait.
Something is wrong. Very worgn. And this is even before I start my implementation.
The files aren’t getting downloaded into the correct location, which means there is a problem with the usage with the page argument in Fido’s fetch() function.
Issue was created here : GenericClient dosen’t handle `path` kwarg
Guess who has to fix it ? 😐
So I started the (irritating) work of resolving the path issue, which took the whole of the second fortnight after mid-evals.
Finally fixed it here : [unidown] Fixes #1854
