    Language Packs – Update 17 (Final) – August, 25th, 2011 

    Thanks to all for cooperation on this project.

    I submitted thread in the WP Hackers list about my project.

    I have uploaded my screencast on WPTV.

    I want to praise my mentors Andrew Nacin and Nikolay Bachiyski, colleague Stas Suscov for helping in project application and Ofer Wald for helping in beta testing phase.

    I am looking forward to incorporate my project in WP core 3.3. and I am also open to become full time committer on the WP core.

    Best Regards

    File Uploader – Done 

    The file uploader project is completed! I’m really looking forward to 3.3’s release so I can start using it in my own projects. 🙂

    Thank you for all your support, and I would like to especially say thank you to Daryl and Andrew for being awesome mentors on this project!

    Hopefully I can continue doing WP development – I’ve got my regular schooling starting up this week, but hopefully I will find the time. I’m definitely planning to apply for GSoC next summer!

    See you all later and hopefully soon!

    WordPress Move – Weekly Update 16 

    This past week I…

    • Made a few additions and corrections on the documentation.
    • Reorganized and rewrote description of some of the settings on the plugin’s settings page.
    • Fixed a few small bugs and a major bug causing 90% of the database get not backed up. To fix it, I made several changes (like using prepare() function instead of adding slashes myself) but the main change was using serialization while creating database backups. The regular expression I wrote to read queries from the database backup was causing problems so I thought that the easiest solution would be storing queries inside an array and serializing it while backing up and then unserializing while importing. This might not be the best practice (due to the slight increase in file size) but at least this method will work on all databases without a problem and is faster as it doesn’t need to parse a backup file. I think a slight increase in file size is an acceptable trade-off in this case.

    Plugin is almost complete right now. We will be having a meeting in a few hours with my mentor to review the code to see if any further changes are necessary. Then I will tag the code as final and submit it to the WordPress Plugin Directory. I will continue developing this plugin after the Google Summer of Code too, so stay tuned for some cool features afterwards 😉

    Enhanced Emails – weekly update 

    After posting the 0.2 release notice I forgot to post the weekly update – sorry for the 24 h delay 🙂

    Since GSoC is coming to an end, I’m glad that despite my health problems during the first part of GSoC I was able to pull it off and meet the project goals. The 0.2 release takes care of the most important bugs of 0.1 and introduces support for all major email clients, desktop and mobile. Litmus proved that the design does well on *all* platforms and even Symbian handles them quite well 😉 I will be releasing 0.2.1 this weekend, with some minor bugfixes, a few template handling improvements and some small naming changes.

    One thing that I’m unhappy with is the fact, that I wasn’t able to do much work with the UI team – and because of wcsf I wasn’t able to get much input on the 0.2 version last week, either. I’m sure there will be plenty of input later and I’ll be happy to keep working on the improvements.

    @westi mentioned that he’d like to see this project incorporated to the core – I’d personally love to see it in 3.4 and will do everything to keep improving it as long as it’s needed. All comments and remarks are highly welcome – I’d like to get the best out of the project and with the proper input – I’m sure we’ll be able to finally incorporate html e-mails support for WP 🙂

    I would like to thank @justin and @aarondcampbell – you were both very helpful and I knew that I could rely on your help and friendly suggestions during the whole summer. The same goes for Mo Jangda – our e-mail conversations helped me a lot, cheers!

    Theme Versioning Week 16 

    Wow, where to even start- I’ve gotten so much done this week.
    I finished implementing the new UI which looks a lot more like the core UI (see screenshot below):

    Theme Versioning New UI

    Theme Versioning Plugin's New UI

    The following are the main points of what I have been doing this week:

    • Testing, testing, testing
    • I’ve fixed the bugs that cropped up (thanks to ocean90 for testing it so rigorously)
    • Added tons of inline code comments including phpdoc style comments
    • Generated php docs
    • Wrote a user doc -thanks to Mert, his user docs served as a great template 🙂
    • Added internationalization and translator comments
    • Got rid of useless old code that somehow stuck around from iterations long ago
    • Cleaned up code, got rid of some commented-out debugging code

    All in all, a very productive week. I couldn’t be happier 🙂

      Regarding the UI:

      • The revisions table should span the whole width of the box.
      • The textarea with the file contents should span the whole width of the screen.
      • The “Revert all files” button should be styled differently (gray?)
      • The “Return to Theme Editor” button should be a link
      • David Julia 9:56 pm on August 19, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        I’ll play with the UI and see what I can come up with… thanks for your feedback!
        Expect to see a new screenshot or two soon.

      Hello, I had been watching your progress on this over the summer because I think it would be useful to me. Is this project complete? I would love to try it out when it’s done.
      Thanks 🙂

      • David Julia 6:49 pm on October 18, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Yes, Cassi, the project is complete – thanks for your interest!
        It’s available from the official plugins repo – you can either download it from inside of WordPress.
        Just search for “Theme Versioning” on the add new plugin page.

        Or get it directly at the url here:

        I’m in the process of updating the readme for the plugin, but right now there’s lots of documentation on how to
        use the plugin in the docs subfolder of the project.

        Although I think/hope that it’s very easy to use, if you run into any issues,
        there’s a screencast explaining the plugin here

        If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions I’d LOVE to hear your feedback!

    Language Packs – Update 16 – August, 18th, 2011 

    This week I finished some minor bugs on the plugin side and added new languages to API endpoint.

    I also submitted users guide.

    I also plan to work some enhancements after GSoC project, such as:

    • Support for the core language packs.
    • Simplification of user interface and adding cron job for update of language packs.
    • Possibilities to download language packs for all selected languages.
    • Sorting languages on the settings page and adding flags along language name.
    • Converting pages for plugins and themes to statistic pages.
    • Planning to migrate in the core.
    • Requesting to translate some plugin or theme to some language.

    I need only to submit API endpoint code and tag version 2.0, but I cannot ping server now and I am doing it as soon as possible.

    Best Regards, and thank you to all mentors and students for cooperation and suggestions. I regret because I have not have more time to participate in beta testing of other projects.

    File Uploader, Week 15 

    The uploader project is basically done! Here’s what was changed by this project:

    • The uploading backend was changed from swfupload to plupload
    • The basic uploader was removed (plupload will auto-fallback to basic if it must)
    • HTML5 and Silverlight were added (to the existing Flash) as uploader runtimes
    • The existing uploading UI was left unchanged
    • Drag and drop was enabled in plupload for runtimes that support it
    • A “resize to large image size” option was added allowing for images larger than the large size to be scaled on upload
    • That resize feature will scale the image pre-upload if the runtime supports that feature
    • (indirectly) Pre-upload in-browser file manipulation is now possible thanks to plupload’s JavaScript APIs

    The code has been committed to core – as I understand, there still may be more improvements to WordPress’s media handling before 3.3’s release, but my project’s part of the improvements is done.

    P.S. Sorry about the late update – I was away from my computer all day yesterday with my family.
