BluePrints

This project draws ideas from the two Blueprints below:

Meetings And Discussions

Weekly Meeting : Wednesday 8:15 UTC

Venue : IRC (Nick - hardikj)

Google Group Discussions :


Goals -

  • configuration of event handlers (nodes) in a workflow (done)
  • storing and retrieving of workflow instances
  • mapping of instance status + current event to a certain node
  • Interface between workflow engine (=event manager) and workflow nodes (=event handler)
  • Interface between nodes and "actions" (=S3Methods?)
  • Workflow widgets (=widgets for users to perform workflow actions), and how to put them into a page


Proposal Timeline: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1pXuzZyUovZo33BMIjawwZBzikCBuAkrOYgsZym4vHO0/edit#heading=h.nrgb3lhu7kyx

May 28th - june 15th (Community Bonding Period)

  • Achieving all the learning goals described in the Outputs and clearing all the doubts with the community.
  • Gathering all my prerequisite about the project and laying down a modular structure of the project.

June 17th - July 29th (Pre Community bonding Period)

Week 1:

  • Discussing the design to save user progress. ( On the Page )
  • Creating models (if required ) to save the user progress so that if a user quit accidently he can restore his work. The saved progress will also be used as step name.
  • Discussing and planning the design of the project with mentors and community.

Week 2 and 3: ( Configuration of event handlers (nodes) in a workflow )

  • Design a configuration pattern (done)
  • Implement the classes for the configuration pattern
  • Testing and documentation
  • Meeting 1 - Code review, Making changes(if suggested), Writing tests , Trunk integration (Wednesday).

Week 4 and 5: ( storing and retrieving of workflow instances )

  • Discussing and plan the Design of the data model
  • Implement the data model
  • Testing and documentation

Week 6 and 7: ( mapping of instance status + current event to a certain node )

  • Design the process
  • Implement the functions
  • Testing & Documentation
  • Mid-Term Evaluation.

July 29th - August 2nd

  • Through revision of what have been done till now and lay a plan for next phase.
  • Fixing all issues/bugs(if any).

August 3rd - September 16th (Post Community Bonding Period )

Week 8 and 9: - interface between workflow engine (=event manager) and workflow nodes (=event handler)

  • Design
  • Implement it
  • Test and document it
  • Meeting 2 - Code review,Suggestions, Applying changes(if any), Trunk Integration.

Week 10 and 11: ( interface between nodes and "actions" (=S3Methods?) )

  • review the configuration pattern
  • design and implement the interface
  • test and document

Week 12 and 13:

  • figure out how to inject the workflow widgets
  • implement it
  • document it

September 17th - September 23rd (Pen down period)

  • Thorough review of all the functionalities.
  • Debugging, Code cleanup, Comments.


SMART Goal Measure Status
Designed Workflow Configuration Discussed the design with mentors and we came up with a good design. Completed
Implement Required classes Implemented all required basic classes which were necessary to make a good cofiguration pattern Completed
Document and make new Blueprint http://eden.sahanafoundation.org/wiki/BluePrint/WorkflowSupport Completed
