GSoC Weekly Report: Week 13 (11 August – 17 August)

This was the last week. I wrote a brief documentation for end users about supported Markdown structures and how a user can make use of it. I also generated the final patch and attached my whole work during these three months for the final review. And yes, I finished the project and met all the goals set at the beginning.

Goodbye Google Summer of Code 2014!


GSoC Weekly Report: Week 12 (4 August – 10 August)

By this week, I finished almost all parts of coding. I resolved linkification conflicts and did some cleanups to the code that I wrote before. I also added documentation to my class (Bugzilla::Markdown).

Since the code is almost done, I generated a final patch and attached it to BMO. I received some comments on my patch from my mentor to revise the code. I then made the modifications accordingly and attached a new patch to BMO.

GSoC Weekly Report: Week 5 (16 June – 22 June)

I implemented at least three important things this week:

  • First, I removed support for inline images from Markdown engine. The standard Markdown supports image inclusion but Bugzilla community does not want to have it.
  • Second, I added a Github Flavored Markdown feature called ‘Multiple underscores in words‘.
  • Last but not least, I also defined a new filter for templates to render comments based upon the inclusion/exclusion of Markdown structures.

GSoC Weekly Report: Week 4 (9 June – 15 June)

This week, I was quite busy with my university stuff and couldn’t spend that amount of time that I did in previous weeks. Nevertheless, I made a new class called Markdown which will serve the main functionality of Markdown generation. This class is a sub-class of Text::Markdown. I also added Text::Markdown to the list of optional modules for Bugzilla functionality.

Furthermore, I studied most of the source code of Text::Markdown to try to understand how things are processed and what possible changes to it would be required in order to work well for Bugzilla.

GSoC Weekly Report: Week 3 (2 June – 8 June)

After implementing features to allow administrators and users to choose to use markdown, we need to start writing a concrete markdown processor. To do that, we have decided to make use of Text::Markdown CPAN module. But, we cannot make use of all of its functionality. We also need to make some modifications and additions to it.

This week, I spent my time to try to subclass it and look for possible conflicts that it might have with Bugzilla. I integrated this module with my Bugzilla installation and examined the generated output. Next, I need to override some methods of the module to make it behave the way we want to.
