Despite being held on a Saturday, more than 15 dedicated Drupalers showed up for Day 4 of the San Francisco Drupal.org redesign sprint. Here’s what was achieved.
- Made a “token” contribution. (Get it? Tokens.)
- Developed a UI for setting up activity logging (the following/tracking utility see on the Dashboard).
- Worked on a cross-site delivery system across the *.drupal.org infrastructure.
- Built the sever-side components for activity reporting and logging.
- Built a microformat-based facet system for activity reporting.
- Finished the single sign-on system for all *.drupal.org properties.
- Developed content and site architecture maps comparing the Drupal.org structure to what we think Mark Boulton is suggesting in his prototypes.
- Reviewed the list of Dashboard widget and where they will appear throughout the site.
- Mapped features needed to implement project-related functionality.
- Worked on the project browsing form.
- Developed some tools for tracking and displaying CVS statistics.
- Delegated tasks to other developers.
- Reviewed several patches.
- Fixed some project UI problems.
- Deleted more code than he added. (Nice.)
- Worked on the “Add to Dashboard” links for widgets.
- General UI/UX work for adding widgets to the Dashboard.
- Figure out how cross-site widgets will work across *.drupal.org.
- Ordered pizza. (Nice.)
- Worked on a new parser for the API module. His work will eventually allow commenting on api.drupal.org.
- Build the jQuery-powered map on the front page.
- Started work on remote Dashboard widgets.
- Worked on the jQuery side of the Dashboard.
- Recruited Nate Haug to help.
- Changed drop-down search form CSS to properly style the checkboxes after they were changed from radio buttons. She also made room for the “Popular Searches” feature in that form.
- Worked on the user picture feature.
- Fixed formatting and grid layout of user profiles.
- Created logic to place section titles as non-header text while styling them to appear like elements.
- Documented her side of the comment titles debate.
- Added styling of book navigation menus.
$linksstyling for nodes.
- Consolidated CSS.
- Fixed the Views administration interface.
- Added node type classes to node output.
- Fixed styling of the “Develop with Drupal” block on the front page.
- Researching styling of the Project module. Later, he will propose a new, more maintainable markup style.
- Improved accessibility of navigation tabs.
- Improved skip links.
Todd Nienkerk (that’s me!):
- Created graphical elements for the world map on the front page.
- Mapped all colors from the prototypes into a master color palette.
- Created color palette for status, error, and help messages.
- Added comments support to the Permalink module. The module now adds an anchored permalink for each comment.
- Created comps for documentation pages. I still need to style classes for good versus bad examples of code, style, language, etc.
