Below is the text of my fist weekly report which you can also find at my blog. It's
been a quiet first week but hopefully things will get more interesting very soon!.
As I’ve posted previously I’ll be working on Entomologist over the Summer as part of the
Google Summer of Code. My primary aim is to redesign the UI to make it much more usable
and much nicer to look at. These posts are going to be once a week summaries of what I’ve
gotten up to in that week and things to look out for.
This week started later than it should have because of exams so I started on Tuesday
instead of Monday. The first thing I attempted to work on was keyboard shortcuts for each
individual platform. It took me a couple of hours to get all of the shortcuts working as
qt didn’t make it obvious that it had switched cmd for ctrl on Mac OS X making me think
the shortcuts I’d created were not working on that platform (it turns out they did!).
After finishing up the primary shortcuts and abandoning a more complicated one (I wanted
to make it possible to add a comment to a bug that had been highlighted in the list) I
called it a day. On Wednesday I focused on trying to get the Mac OS X port to work and had
some friends with Macs test it for me. After a few issues that needed resolution
(primarily the debug writer causing the application to segfault, which Matt Barringer
spotted/fixed for me). Thursday was also spent getting the Mac OS X port to work correctly
which has now been bundled into a .dmg. Today, Friday, I’ve been working on the Windows
port, which has mainly involved ifdefing out fcntl.h as a single instance check. There
have been some issues with how it builds on Windows and I’m still working on the packaging
aspect of it. It will be finished before Monday and hopefully before the end of this
Summary of this week:
-Keyboard Shortcuts added to Entomologist that work on all platforms (thank you qt for
-Entomologist ported to Mac OS X as a .dmg/.app bundle with correct icons etc.
-Entomologist nearly ported to Windows
This has been a quieter week which has been useful in getting into things slowly,
especially after being exhausted from exams/being ill. I’m very much on target with my
timeline and hopefully there will be no deviation from it in the coming weeks.
