Hey Everyone, I'm Ayush Kumar Sinha, A 2nd Year CS undergraduate from VIT Vellore, India and a GSoC student this year under ReactOS : )
How I got to know about the project
Before the Application period
I explored Testman and Buildbot, got to know about its working and got a clear Idea about the Project. Ok, let's write a good Proposal
The Community Bonding Period
@colin-finck, @vicmarcal and @extravert34 are my mentors : D
In this period I learnt ReactJs, Redux and Redux-saga and their best practices which were essential to get started with the project. @smiley 's doc of what the developer Interface should look like made me more clear about the expectation of the community about this project ... Let's start Coding
The task before the First evaluation is to fetch and render Commits and pull request.
In the first week,
- made an API call to Commits endpoint
- configured react-app to make use of Redux
- Designed the header component with Reactstrap and boostrap
This week is going on and I have made Good progress this week ( I think so !! ). All thanks to the self coding I did in the community bonding period.
In the Second week,
- made an API call to branches endpoint
- Rendered the latest commits and all branches to the client side
- Deployed the Application on Heroku here
Now the Application shows you the 5 latest commits from master(by default). Upon clicking a particular branch, you can get the latest commits of that particular branch.
Hope I am Going on a good pace XD
Thanks for Reading : )
