Hi all, here are some current events relevant to this list. There are two open MRs to discuss, some operations stuff, and I've got relevant personal updates as well. Let's start with the MRs.
## https://git.snowdrift.coop/sd/snowdrift/merge_requests/51 This is updating the auth pages to implement the specs for alpha. It's in pretty good shape, but there is some discussion left to resolve, and in particular, I see test failures where Jazzy does not. It would be great if someone else could clone that branch and reproduce the test results either way. I'll point out https://git.snowdrift.coop/sd/snowdrift/issues/30, which might throw unrelated errors, and which really needs to be fixed asap. Thanks go to Jazzy for working on this piece! ## https://git.snowdrift.coop/sd/snowdrift/merge_requests/52 This is adding the core styling for alpha. It's not a small change, but it is mostly just an import of an existing Sass code base developed over the course of a few months. The reason this MR is still open is that we've run into complications incorporating Sass into Yesod. There are packages for this purpose, but they do not do Haskell splice interpolations (which makes me wonder what the point of the package even is). There's been some discussion of options on IRC, and I'm leaning toward compiling Sass to "Lucius" (aka CSS) in a step preceding the usual Haskell compile. That certainly has drawbacks, but I think it's important to get Sass working if at all possible. Fr33domlover is also working on other possibilities, starting with a patch to shakespeare-sass. Thanks go to Ikomi for guiding this particular herd of cats towards greener pastures. ## TLS cert Our TLS certificate expires next month, and Wolftune is going through the process of ordering a renewal. It would be cool to automate this eventually using LetsEncrypt, but there just hasn't been time yet. ## Chreekat goes on an adventure I've had a trip to Europe planned for a few months, and that kicks off on August 1. But that's not the whole extent of my adventure. I just learned I'm getting laid off at the same time. While that forces me to find a new source of income, it also gives me the time to take a small sabbatical and focus on Snowdrift. If you're in Europe and want to pair program on Snowdrift, let me know! My timetable is pretty flexible now. My first stop will be Freiburg, Germany, where I'll get to meet Mray. I'll also be attending HacFreiburg where I obviously intend to hack on Snowdrift and introduce it to more Haskellers. Plans get fuzzy after that... Have a good rest of your weekend, -chreekat, lead dev _______________________________________________ Dev mailing list Dev@lists.snowdrift.coop https://lists.snowdrift.coop/mailman/listinfo/dev
