tpw_rules
ah, i am not sure i like them. i do think they are cheesy
00:43
tpw_rules
i see an edit link on your link, what exactly does that do? i had a few suggestions
00:43
anuejn
okay then, i am not married to those
00:45
anuejn
I just tried to bring in some fresh air and make the reader curious
00:45
tpw_rules
maybe i will try but i'm not a huge fan of "drama" like that. at least with the rest of the text. thank you for the suggestion though
00:46
anuejn
thats okay :)
00:46
anuejn
tho I would really use a more descriptive title than introduction ;)
00:46
tpw_rules
yes that is true

MEETING TIME!
16:00
se6astian
good to be back!
16:00
vup
is here
16:00
se6astian
thanks BAndiT1983 and Bertl for taking over the last weeks
16:00
Bertl
is here ...
16:00
tpw_rules
is here
16:00
Bertl
se6astian: no problem! wb!
16:00
se6astian
gsoc submission deadline is in 2h so perfect timing for today
16:00
se6astian
thanks!
16:00
vnksnkr
is here
16:01
se6astian
so lets start reporting!
16:01
se6astian
vnksnkr: do you want to start?
16:01
vnksnkr
sure
16:01
vnksnkr
worked on the final report last week
16:02
vnksnkr
I've added the link earlier
16:02
anuejn
is here
16:03
vnksnkr
apart from that made sure there is enough documentation on my projects,and did code cleanup
16:03
vnksnkr
ah, one more thing
16:04
vnksnkr
while making the final report, we realized that the protocol we were using at first for communicating between the Beta and MachXO2 was using too many unwanted bits
16:05
vnksnkr
so made the protocol more efficient, brought down the number of bits transferred from 48 to 38
16:06
vnksnkr
so yeah, that's what I've been upto last week
16:07
se6astian
many thanks!
16:07
se6astian
tpw_rules: please go ahead
16:08
tpw_rules
hello, so i obivously spent most of my week working on the final report too
16:08
tpw_rules
just a couple more tweaks to make thanks to vup. i didn't finish all the goals i set out but i think i made great progress anyway and am happy with how the results have turned out
16:09
tpw_rules
also like vnksnkr, i discovered the image transfer to DRAM wasn't quite working correctly. i haven't had time to figure that out, but i definitely plan to stay around and fix that and finish up my work
16:09
tpw_rules
but i think that is all from me
16:09
Bertl
great!
16:10
se6astian
many thanks!
16:10
se6astian
vup you are next
16:10
vup
hi
16:10
vup
so besides helping anuejn and tpw_rules with the last parts of gsoc I started implementing a layouter for use in the ui framework anuejn is writing for the axiom recorder
16:11
vup
narui used to use a implementation of flexbox layout (like css flexbox), however this led to some unfortunate problems
16:11
vup
for example flexbox makes it hard to stack multiple things on top of each other
16:12
vup
this complicates narui a lot because this means in the widget tree every node potentially has something to be rendered attached to it and not just the leaves
16:12
vup
furthermore the flexbox layout can be quite slow
16:13
vup
So I started writing a layout implementation based on the concepts of flutter
16:13
vup
It uses a very simple concept, a parent gives bounding box constraints to it children, which in turn calculate their size using these constraints. Finally the parent positions the children how it wants (the children won't know their position)
16:14
vup
while simple this concept can be used to implement most layout elements (rows, columns, etc) quite easily
16:15
vup
in addition to that the layouter can perform partial layout updates, so if only a few nodes have changed it will only need to re-layout those
16:15
vup
which in turn means, that on average the layouter should be sublinear (in terms of the total number of layout nodes)
16:16
vup
Now the next step is to actually use it in narui
16:17
anuejn
(see https://github.com/apertus-open-source-cinema/narui/pull/9)
16:17
vup
thats it from me
16:17
se6astian
very cool! many thanks!
16:17

eppisai_: please go ahead

eppisai_
Hi.. :)
16:17
eppisai_
Quick update from me
16:18
eppisai_
I was also mostly involved with completing my final report.. last week
16:18
eppisai_
And making whatever work I had done, bit more proper
16:19
eppisai_
So I had debugged the keyboard version, and tried to finish up th transition task
16:20
eppisai_
I had also done the PBCLK3 setup properly in timer..

16:21
eppisai_
So, i'll hanging here for a quite a while I think..
16:21
eppisai_
:) that's it for today.
16:21
se6astian
great, many thanks!
16:21
se6astian
anuejn: your turn!
16:23
anuejn
I spent most of mytime this week to bring narui and the axiom recorder UI into a presentable state
16:23
anuejn
for that I split narui off into its own repo and wrote a readme with some high level documentation
16:24
anuejn
https://github.com/apertus-open-source-cinema/narui
16:24
anuejn
then I also cleaned up the axiom-recorder parts of my work
16:25
anuejn
... cherry picked not directly UI related changes into the main branch of the recorder
16:25
anuejn
https://github.com/apertus-open-source-cinema/axiom-recorder/commits/main
16:25
anuejn
and created a pull request with clean history for the UI additions:https://github.com/apertus-open-source-cinema/axiom-recorder/pull/7
16:25
anuejn
this work is not ready to merge yet tho
16:26
anuejn
currently I am sweating hard at finishing my final gsoc report ;)
16:26
anuejn
thats it from me
16:26
se6astian
excellent, many thanks!
16:26
se6astian
BAndiT1983: do you also want to share something today?
16:26
se6astian
bluez_: and Dest123?
16:27
se6astian
any news from you?
16:27
se6astian
gsoc students please create a user account on the https://wiki.apertus.org immediately if you dont have one yet
16:27
se6astian
as we are getting flooded with spam bots again so I will have to shut down user creation again right after you signed up
16:28
se6astian
then please edit this page: https://wiki.apertus.org/index.php/GSoC_Projects and add your project
16:28
se6astian
then fill the link page in the manner of the entries from previous years
16:29
se6astian
in addition we want to post a news article on apertus.org about this years gsoc projects
16:29
se6astian
like https://www.apertus.org/google-summer-of-code-wrap-2020-article-october-2020
16:29
se6astian
for that we need at least one image per project and a few lines with a brief summary of the task/achievements, it can include links to further details
16:29
se6astian
a google doc draft like most of you shared for the final report would be a good way to do that
16:30
se6astian
I will create the website content then in our html template
16:30
tpw_rules
will it take until october to do that this year? i think i can get my project complete by then :)
16:30
se6astian
lets try to have everything together much sooner :)
16:31
se6astian
next week would be great
16:31
se6astian
if you have any questions about these two things let me know
16:31
se6astian
wiki syntax, etc.
16:32
se6astian
but as I said please sign up on the wiki right now if you didnt
16:32
se6astian
ok, since I am back from vacation just for a few days I still need a bit of time to resettle in the project again
16:32
se6astian
if I missed anything that you need while I was gone please let me know
16:33
se6astian
or if I missed anything that happened but needs my attention
16:33
se6astian
Bertl: do you also have news for us?
16:33
Bertl
not much, basically all my project related spare time was spent on reviewing reports and discussing final steps for the GSoC

but I'm optimistic that I'll have more interesting stuff to report next week
16:35
Bertl

16:35
se6astian
many thanks
16:36
se6astian
