In this post I would be focusing on the work done in the past two weeks, issues faced and how I went about resolving them. Also, since the first evaluation is near, the post also contains a brief analysis of the current progress with respect to the deliverables mentioned in the proposal.
Issues faced and how I went about resolving them:
I wasn't able to set the day names header in the calendar view based on the locale preferences, the day names always showed up in English no matter which language is selected in locale preferences.
In this post I would be focusing on my last two weeks of community bonding. The coding period has officially began on 30th, although I had already started it in my second week itself.
I had one or two different things in mind for this week as I mentioned in my previous post. But I ended up working on implementing a locale aware date header, and the calendar widget, which is more important initially as to implement the basic functionalities of the calendar app, and is also the first goal.
In my previous post I introduced you all to the Calendar Application project that I would be working upon as a part of GSoC 2017. In this post I would be focusing on my first two weeks of the community bonding period.
Getting to know people The first few days were spent in exploring more about the Haiku community, getting to know the mentors and fellow students, and learning in details about their project through their blog posts.
Introduction Hello I'm Akshay (IRC/Trac: akshay, GitHub: AkshayAgarwal007) from Kolkata, India. I would be working on developing a native Calendar Application for Haiku as a part of Google Summer of Code 2017. My mentors for the project are Scott McCreary and Kacper Kasper. I am very excited for this project.
Why a Calendar Application? Isn’t there already one? A Calendar application is a must have application for any operating system and would be beneficial for end users as well as developers.
