Week 8 consisted of initiating the ansible playbook for django. I started with a fabric script and the weekly involved extensive discussion about it’s requirement.

This week’s progress

Week 9 involved me implementing the templates for nginx and gunicorn, both of which are extremely necessary to host a django web app. As this is my first time working with ansible, I had to simultaneously go through existing playbooks and documentation.

Tasks completed in week 8

  1. Created plays consisting handlers as well as templates for nginx, a reverse proxy as well as gunicorn, responsible for serving the wsgi server.

Minutes of the meeting (weekly call on Sunday):

  1. Discussed ways to involve the community in testing the efficient functioning of the visualizations. Decision was made to set the existing as the benchmark.
  2. Creation of a script to randomly generate a given number of components that possess visualizations. This would help in easier cross-verification with respect to the website.

Goals for week 9

  1. Continue with Ansible.
  2. Create an API call to generate given number of random components that possess visualizations.
  3. Add link to the current prototype website in the biojs blog.
