Streaming Support And MediaKit Development - Report #6

Blog post by Barrett on Tue, 2016-06-07 14:29

Finally a new report. The time since the latest report has been spent mostly into gaining a preliminary support to streaming and begin finalyzing the underlying support code.

This included documenting myself about the APIs and figuring out how to implement the functionality in a clean way. There are various additions, we are moving to the right place so we finally have a streaming infrastructure.

Hi there! Once again with about a month of delay, here comes the activity report.

This report covers the range hrev50117-hrev50336.

Command line apps

AGMS contributed some fixes to the "mail" command line app which can be now be used easily to send automated messages from a script. This is an useful tool to have in automated tasks to post status report, errors, etc.

Contributing via pull requests

Opening issues for an application at github, for example, is a good way to help improving software. Often it's only a small detail and something a non-programming user could easily fix. Maybe it's just a typo or improved documentation etc.

Doing the changes yourself and contributing these fixes directly via a so-called "pull-request" is even better, as it saves the precious time of the developers/maintainers. Also, this dabbling in code might be a nice way to slowly ease yourself into more ambitious contributions.

It's really a long time since the latest report, starting with this one I'm going to restore the usual article frequency.

The second part of my contract has been accepted and I'm finally returning to work on streaming support. However there is various work I had not the possibility to talk about and other things I pushed in the last week.

This week-end I went to the Journées du Logiciel Libre (JDLL) to hold the Haiku booth. The JDLL is a local event over two days, mostly focused at general public, with workshops and even a FLOSS gaming room for kids, but also with some highly technical and ethical talks. It also has a room with 3D printers and other maker tools.

Blog post by Barrett on Wed, 2016-04-06 14:39

Good news everyone!

It was a very long week, having easter in the middle too. There are various news, but I want to begin with a summary of this month.

  • 42 commits have been included into the Haiku master branch
  • More than 15 commits are still WIP among my branches
  • 2 commits have been put into haikuports
  • 4 tickets are now closed and a lot more are waiting my work to be complete

I submitted a request to Haiku Inc. to work for additional 240 hours, and I hope the project gets the needed funding to support my work. If you are interested in seeing my contract continue, please consider making a donation :-)

Let's talk about what happened in the meantime.

Hello, here a short report about how things are coming along.

Work continue on the curl streaming code

I've continued working on the network glue by adding a very basic locking using the RWLocker in Haiku's shared kit. This class allow multiple concurrent readers and an exclusive writer at one time.
