Hey Bertl, I have wrote code for cropping and extracting histogram of an image. I'd be glad if you can take a look at it whenver you're free and give me feedback. I didn't used openCV so well, it be great if you can tell me how I did :)
14:25
Bertl
sure, where can I find the code?
14:26
nmdis1999
I'll pm you :D

hello RexOrCine, available? Would like to discuss the newsletter thing...
15:46
RexOrCine
supragya: Oh yeah?
15:47
supragya
I would be interested in doing this as a side project... What are the requirements?
15:50
RexOrCine
I think it's pretty much done to be fair chief. Generally I focus on copy so with respect to the content it's a case of compiling things that merit a mention (whilst striking a balance between what's NL appropriate and what's best saved for, or expanded upon in, a Team Talk) I'm fairly sure that that the layout is reasonable but I suspect BAndiT1983 had something in mind for an additional template...
15:51
RexOrCine
"e.g. you would write a json file, like in the example from yesterday(will search for it in a moment), where you would fill in the placeholders with text and possibly image links, afterwards some simple processing tool, like handlebars would process MJML template and fill your data in <BAndiT1983> PCB inspection webpage was done as prototype before, but I've lost web part of it, luckily python search for fiducial is still
15:51
RexOrCine
available"
15:51
RexOrCine
... so you might need to consult him about that.
15:52
RexOrCine
Something you could make a start on might be being an APOC.
15:52
supragya
well then... If it is underway... BAndiT1983 may do the rest. However do let me know if I can play a part. Had some thoughts on md for that templating thing... but JSON is great too I suspect
15:52
supragya
APOC?
15:52
RexOrCine
That way you'd be able to write things in Hindi etc if that was required.
15:52
supragya
translations of sort?

15:55
BAndiT1983
supragya, do you really have time while gsoc to make also that stuff?
15:56
supragya
I was talking of next few weeks maybe
15:56
BAndiT1983
currently we use MJML as newsletter framework, but it's not offering some things or we have overlooked it in the docs
15:56
supragya
idea seemed interesting...
15:56
BAndiT1983
as it was a bit cumbersome to adjust everything manually, so i thought about templating
15:56
supragya
how do you care about formattings there BAndiT1983 ? in JSON?
15:57
BAndiT1983
we use nodejs and especially GULP for the pipeline
15:57
BAndiT1983
MJML is like HTML but made simpler, although i could do same stuff in HTML without such a lot of output like MJML does
15:58
BAndiT1983
JSON was just an idea for placeholder settings, you suggested also markdown yesterday, there is also a module for that in NPM
15:58
supragya
would have to look into MJML... but how does it compare to MD, I just wanted to know this
15:58
supragya
git made me work with MD and I love it now
15:58
supragya
so that's why I asked
15:58
BAndiT1983
totally different as MJML is HTML in disguise
15:59
BAndiT1983
they just register custom tags, so it's generalized, but sometimes it's not making stuff eaasier there
15:59
supragya
searched on it... MJML... email framework specific... should work better I guess
16:00
RexOrCine
Did se6astian make progress on the test email Bandit?
16:01
RexOrCine
negative I take it as I'd probably have received one.
16:01
supragya
here -> https://mjml.io/try-it-live
16:01
supragya
is it scalable with JSON?
16:01
supragya
like what if different paragraphs... different number of paragraphs
16:02
BAndiT1983
mjml does not really have placeholders
16:03
supragya
that should still be easy I guess... but I don't know... md seems more real for writing (preference)... that's all... still an mjml parser does responsive things on itself... so I guess it is better
16:04
supragya
can you point me to the codebase somewhere, where you all are working on... (if possible).
16:04
supragya
also what was with the APOC? Hindi thing?
16:04
ArunM

16:05
BAndiT1983
MJML is used for layout, but if we would add handlebars or similar, then we could replace content
16:05
BAndiT1983
don't really see MJML advantage over simple HTML and CSS, but we already started with it and should evaluate how we can add automatization
16:06
supragya
[don't really see MJML advantage over simple HTML and CSS] -> kind of my point really... just an abstraction
16:06
RexOrCine
I'd probably have to go into APOCs another time supragya. I have to leave here now. Tomorrow should be ok.
16:07
BAndiT1983
check this out -> https://github.com/mjmlio/mjml/issues/653

BAndiT1983
some links, supragya, before you starve ;)
16:08
RexOrCine
With APOCs it's usally a case of, if there are any enquiries from a specific region, they're either directed to the APOC or an APOC is included in comms. Sometimes people can't always speak english and getting an introduction to the project in a native language can help.
16:09
RexOrCine
There aren't really any rules where APOcs are concerned but operating regional social accounts (and in the future possibly meets) would be advantageous.
16:10
RexOrCine
Speak tomorrow.

BAndiT1983
sorry to interrupt, but this looks really interesting for that task -> https://handlebarsjs.com
16:11
supragya
BAndiT1983, I may come out a bit stubborn here... and sorry for that but as a content writer... handlebars and mjml is still "Code" for me while something like "markdown" is not. Am I missing the point here...?
16:12
supragya
or are the content writers are fine that way?
16:12
BAndiT1983
it really depends on the complexity of the task, we have two-column layout and single column, there are 2 big images in between of the sections, Rex mentioned third section, which would be used sometimes
16:13
supragya
so more or less the layout is bound to be the same?
16:13
supragya
in that case I see the point
16:13
BAndiT1983
it's really about placeholders and auto-generating the newsletter, so markdown is for content, but not in the way i think of it currently
16:13
BAndiT1983
yep, it would be the same, just the content replaceable
16:14
supragya
then it is fine... however if the layout changes with every newsletter... we need more flexibility.
16:15
supragya
also the APOC thing... what is the problem statement here, I really missed it... autogenerated replies, or email forwarding or translation?
16:17
BAndiT1983
nope, the layout is set for longer usage
16:18
BAndiT1983
APOC is about a person which is the contact for the area, bound to country

https://wiki.apertus.org/index.php/APOCs
16:18
supragya
this link is what I needed!
16:18
BAndiT1983
then just ask ;)
16:19
BAndiT1983
supragya, have you used nodejs before?
16:19
supragya
no BAndiT1983, but really think it is a good idea to get acquianted with JS tbh
16:19
supragya
many companies dig that it seems..
16:22
supragya
ah.. so RexOr wasn't asking me to make something technical.. it was to be a person of contact?
16:26
BAndiT1983
yep
16:26
supragya
I am kind of speechless right now
16:27
supragya
thanks!
16:29
BAndiT1983
my opinion is split on JS, using nodejs for local processing or prototypes, but JS as main language for bigger processing is no option for me
16:29
BAndiT1983
why speechless??
16:32
supragya
it's kindof honor... actually being a part of organisation now!
16:32
supragya
same take on JS for me

BAndiT1983
apertus, like every other open source project, needs people who contribute in any way
16:35
BAndiT1983
too many people are only talking or demanding, but the project can only live and expand, if people do contribute in practical way
16:36
supragya
I rather keep shut than being former one BAndiT1983
16:36
supragya
nmdis1999, hi!
16:36
BAndiT1983
btw. about JS, was avoiding nodejs for years, as i had no usage area for it, but now for PCB inspection or newsletter it became really useful, as processing pipeline, npm has a lot of packages for every task
16:36
BAndiT1983
supragya, what do you mean?
16:36
supragya
talking and doing nothing - don't like this
16:39
BAndiT1983
doing is actually harder to accomplish, that's why many people avoid it, also there is no pay in such project, so that's another reason for people to not contribute
16:39
supragya
I get it...
16:39
BAndiT1983
but it was my drive to join, as i like to develop software and learn new stuff
16:40
BAndiT1983
as you see, we have many areas to contribute, besides software development
16:40
supragya
I don't know much about else... but really think I can do some help with OC
16:40
supragya
however... apart from those... I like to learn too
16:52
supragya
BAndiT1983, what about CLion? Did you get the license from JetBrains?
16:52
BAndiT1983
have not approached them yet
16:54
BAndiT1983
qtcreator is rather ok for qt stuff, like oc, for everything else usually visual studio code, also for building and debugging, even c++
16:57
BAndiT1983
supragya, have you tried clang analyzer?
16:57
