Phil 7/14/15

7:30 – 5:00

  • Write up a description of Dong’s skillset.
  • Call Arhouse.
  • Continue on ComponentNetwork
    • Chain -> History
    • ‘Relevance to Search’ dialog for keywords, etc.
    • Accumulate search terms in some way. Possibly weight them?
    • Rebuilding the network construction so that it’s handled by its own class. The basics are working, need to add connections based on pending requests next. Overall it’s better than using addEnvironment, which really wasn’t all that appropriate. It should be easy to add in textures too. Fingers crossed.
  • Looks like my workstation should be in next week
  • Pluto flyby!

Phil 7.13.15

8:00 – 2:30 SR

  • Everything is running smoothly on the production machine. Clearly a disaster of epic proportions is looming.
  • Setting up a VizTool account on the laptop so that Dong can set up and verify his code base.
  • Either work on attaching the database or building the recursive chain class. Leaning towards the class.
    • One root at a time? Yes, but allow the root to be reset to any point in the network.

Phil 7.10.15

8:00 – 4:00 SR

  1. Sent Steve F. some background on Visibility and equipment requests
  2. Continue working on integrating dynamic data provider into charts. First pass is done, but kind of crappy. I think there needs to be a recursive way of adding the data. Something like an tree object that recurses through itself to create the data provider which is then rendered. Ponder it over the weekend.
  3. Need to make a self-contained example of the flexbox/ng-repeat interaction.
  4. Redid my tuition reimbursement because Novetta changed it after I submitted it before.
  5. Uploaded the current app and it still works!

Phil 7.9.15

8:00 – 5:00 SR

  • Asked Dong to make sure that all projects were standalone, and didn”t depend on Maven, etc. that was outside the repository.
  • Fixed one of the names in the PM database list
  • Trustworthiness –
    • Need to change the queries around so that the kind of data is listed (Url:, Keyword:, etc. This can be parsed as needed by the submitting methods – done
    • Get the initial interactions beween the webGL and the search. Set up the dataFormat to handle the types.
      • Working on the resetDataProvider and resetDataFormat.
    • Add new search buttons (Google News, Fact Checked, Alchemy News, etc) – done
    • Start adding in the DB
      • In the link table, types can be ‘relation’ ‘supports’ ‘disputes’, others(?)
  • Meeting with Brad and Steve
    • Send software and hardware configuration to Steve Filippi (scfilip)

Phil 7.8.15

8:00 – 4:30 SR

  • Re-ordered my dev machine
  • Had a good discussion with Lenny about future directions for the project and how to effectively use my time while we wait for someone to come on board.
  • Working on figuring out how to put an absolute div in a dynamic page. Ok, here’s how I got it to work.
  • This is the style
    <style>
        .wrapperPanel {
            display: flex;
            justify-content: center;
            background-color: lightgray;
            margin-bottom: 10px;
            margin-top: 10px;
            width: 98vw;
            height: 30vh;
        }
    
        .mainWindow {
            position: relative;
            width: 100%;
            height: 100%;
            background: linear-gradient(darkblue, black);
        }
    
        .glDiv {
            position: absolute;
            width: 100%;
            height: 100%;
        }
    </style>
  • and this is the HTML
    <div class="wrapperPanel">
        <div class="mainWindow">
            <ng-network-webgl class="glDiv" config-obj="glc.configObj"></ng-network-webgl>
        </div>
    </div>
  • The mainWindow css is needed so that the div with the ‘glDiv’ css has something to reference to. Otherwise the overlays won’t work.
  • Lunch thoughts
    • Confirm/Dispute
    • URL chain (or, just chain)
  • Handoff meeting from Brad to Steve tomorrow at 2:00 or later.
  • Added webgl network canvas using inheritance for the controller. Aside from forgetting the stylesheet, everything worked as hoped for!

Phil 7.7.15

8:00 – 5:00 SR

  • Got my new worksa- wait. Actually, it’s my old, non dev workstation with more monitors.
  • The guy who installed my monitors said that there was a way to order custom equipment, but it appears to be a nonexistent link.
  • Looking into online IDEs. Cloud9 hangs on even a simple PHP execution. Trying Eclipse Orion. Ok, that’s just horrible.
  • Ok, I might be getting a dev machine now….
  • Working on dynamic data for network charts. I’ve got the basics working (need database calls as well, but let’s do that later) Now I need to get the basics of the CSS working for the mix of regular and webGL directives.

Phil 7.6.15

8:00 – 4:00

  • Told Lenny about Dong’s resignation.
  • More dynamic chart data.
  • Set the meta information about the kind of data into each item so that the directive knows what to draw.
  • In the main app, set it so that the data was returned in one object and meta information about the query was returned in the other
  • Connect the data provider to the initial pull
  • Add additional defined strings for query types to support different flavors of queries (DRILL_DOWN, etc)
  • Add defined strings for response type (NEW, REPLACE, APPEND, UPDATE, etc) UPDATE should keep current data and only add new.
  • Need to be able to add and delete (lines? lighting?) between nodes without adjusting the behavior of the nodes. It’s be nice to be able to do this as part of the mouseover
    • AddRelation(target) – creates an entry in a hashmap
    • DeleteRelation(target) – deletes the entry
    • CustomMouseoverBehavior(c:WglComponentBase){} – add to CanvasBase

Phil 7.2.15

7:30 – 4:30SR

  • Rain.
  • Updated the funding requests DB with a new support project
  • Working my way through Khan Academy inferential statistics

  • More dynamic chart data.
    • Had to add angular-sanitize and  ngSanitize to handle redering injected HTML
    • Got the rss data rendering in angular
    • For some reason, the ‘+’ symbol doesn’t travel well. It gets changed to a space on the way to the server. Re-rigged the server side code to combine queries.
    • Bundled up all the processing code in GoogleNewsRss.php.
    • In the main app, set it so that the data was returned in one object and meta information about the query was returned in the other
    • Connect the data provider to the initial pull
    • Add additional defined strings for query types to support different flavors of queries (DRILL_DOWN, etc)
    • Add defined strings for response type (NEW, REPLACE, APPEND, UPDATE, etc) UPDATE should keep current data and only add new.
