Hello, I am He Yang (@kernel.bin) from China. This year, I signed up for GSoC, and I’m very glad to be given the chance to work with the ReactOS team. My mentors for the project are Mark Jansen and Ioannis Adamopoulos. It’s a great honor to have two mentors to guide me. My project is “Application manager RAPPS”. RAPPS is used by almost everyone using ReactOS, thus making it essential to get RAPPS easy-to-use, powerful and bug-free.
This is a summary of all the work that has been completed this summer on the file search project. All contributed code can be found in this GitHub pull request. Summary Here is a list of the main features: Quickly open it from the Start menu or with the keyboard shortcut Windows + F Search is case-insensitive and recurses all sub-folders Support for UTF-16 encoded text files File name filtering with support for wildcards "
Introduction Developer Web Interface for ReactOS is a web tool to support the development of ReactOS. The main goal of this project is to develop a platform for ReactOS developers to easily track Commits, Builds and Test details. The web Interface makes API calls to various endpoints of GitHub, BuildBot and Testman API and interrelates them and renders a simplified view of Commit, Build and Test details at one place, so developers don't have to visit different sites to view different details, our web Interface collects all details and displays at one place.
Hello Everyone !! Until week 2 we made API calls to the Branches and Commits Endpoint of the GitHub API and rendered it. So at the end of week 2, we were able to fetch Top 5 commits from any of the branches as required. Week 3 UI Improvement Till week 2 we just had a simple table showing a few very basic information about the commits. So we designed a collapsible Panel which can contain all information required from the API.
Introduction Hello everyone, This is Akshay Patil, 3rd-year B.E CS student from VIIT Pune, lately working on RAPPS. The Google Summer of code, abbreviated as GSoC is an annual program in which Google pairs University Students to work with open source organizations and then awards stipends to students who are able to meet project milestones. This Summer I am working with ReactOS to improve RAPPS. ReactOS is a free and open-sourced operating system based on the Windows NT architecture, providing support for existing applications and drivers, and an alternative to the current dominant consumer operating system.
Introduction Hello, My name is Brock Mammen and I am a student for Google Summer of Code 2019. This is my second year as a GSoC student, but it is my first year contributing to ReactOS. My project is to create a search extension for the ReactOS shell. I am excited to learn more about how the shell works and how to use ATL and COM to create user interfaces.
Introduction WinBtrfs is a feature-complete IFSD (Installable File System Driver) for NT operating systems, written by Mark Harmstone. This driver is checked into the ReactOS source code for some time already. My main goal for this GSoC project was to implement all missing features (and fix bugs, of course) in ReactOS that prevents booting from BTRFS file system. Links All work is merged into gsoc2018_all branch in my ReactOS fork on GitHub.
Hi, all! Here is what happened since last post: Freeloader is now able to read files and follow symlinks from btrfs partition. One major issue is left here - case sensitivity. BTRFS is case-sensitive file system, so paths like /ReactOS/System32, /reactos/system32, /ReactOS/system32 are different here. But in Windows world most software is written assuming that case does not matter during path lookup. This thing is solved in WinBtrfs driver, but for Freeloader it can be a bit tricky.
Hi all! Sorry, haven’t written anything for a while. Let me tell you what have been done since last post. BTRFS boot sector TL;DR: It works! I’ve been able to load main bootloader code from freeldr.sys into memory, transfer control to it and get on error message (freeldr.sys can’t find its config file - I haven’t written second-stage BTRFS code yet). It was not that easy because we are in x86 real mode when running boot sector thus only about 1mb of memory is available.
