Hackathon Fall 2021
This page summarizes the action plan for the Kiwix Hackathon Fall 2021.
- POC Docker common base OLIP/OFFSPOT Renaud/Florian
- Use emscripten to compile and try to use libzim & kiwix-lib : Mossroy/Geoffrey/Matthieu
- Setup infrastructure for i18n of kiwix-js : Geoffrey/Mossroy
- Backport most of the UI of kiwix-js-windows : Geoffrey/Mossroy
- Switch the default mode to ServiceWorker : Mossroy/Geoffrey
- Discuss a method to read remotely an index (in JS), hard problem of #659 : Kelson/...
- Agreed on multi-steps roadmap to build OLIP and Offspot images from a single toolchain that will ultimately be operated by the Cardshop and/or OLIP Marketplace.
- Agreed on development distribution and schedule (debuts in April 2022)
- Created repositories for base-image and image-creator
- New Zimfarm Drive and move files needed by recipes in it.
- Latest libzim can now be compiled easily and properly with emscripten. It's ready to be integrated in kiwix-build.
- An incomplete integration of this libzim in kiwix-js is available in a PR, and makes use of libzim to read most content. It works well, but is currently slower
- A PR is ready to implement the workaround to use ServiceWorker mode in Firefox extensions, which is a pre-requisite to switch to ServiceWorker mode by default. The PR has still to be polished a bit.
- A decision has been made on how to handle external links in ServiceWorker mode (which was also a pre-requisite to switch to ServiceWorker mode by default)
- Released v7 of docker-publish-action with webhook support (to trigger auto-deploy on Sloppy)
- Agreement on Hints and impact on suggestion/ft indexes, see openzim/libzim #642
- Analysed and close a ticket (is invalid) reported by IIAB
- First experimentation with Windows Subsystem for Linux (Ubuntu). It does not seem to work out of the box because of some kind of conflict around node-gyp.
- Finish to define M0 and M1
- Progresses on completing M0
- Preparatory work around release of 3.4.7 (migration to Maven, support of SD card in Android11, recruitement)
- Make preparatory work to outphase our custom library XML format, see https://github.com/kiwix/overview/issues/59.
~ 5 developers meet during a week to make this steps forward.
