Hello there! Well well well. It has been an eventful first few weeks, to say the least! Let's gauge my progress, shall we?
Vocabulary Site Updates (Edition 1/many more to come)
What I've been upto
I've mainly got myself invested in a survey of the existing documentation that vocabulary currently possesses, and find places where it could be made better. After clearing those issues out, I began building the main landing site for
Fonts. It wasn't particularly difficult to establish the necessary workflows as I had done something similar before. During the process of designing the basic structure of the site, I came across a few instances where I felt we needed new/improved components & I discussed the same with my team over on the sprint calls. The design of the site is nearly done. I'm also building the site parallelly & seeking approval from the CC Design Team. I've gotten myself involved in multiple other community contributions to CC as well across multiple of our repositories.
What I've learnt
- Knowing the previously existing code in your project is of serious essence. It's important to understand the code styles, structure & activity of the code that you are dealing with.
- Be patient! Its fine to delay something if it makes sense to have it logically accomplished only after certain other tasks are done & dusted with.
- How essential it is to write neat code is something that's not spoken too often. (I wonder why...)
- I always thought VueJS sets up SPA's by default. I'm surprised you need to configure it additionally to do just that!
- Storybook is just a really nifty OSS with great community support!
Other community work tidbits
- I've been working on the Dark Mode (a much awaited feature, at least for me!) for our storybooks with some support from our community. It should be up and running shortly!
- Fixed some formatting bugs in the
README.md& suggested changes wrt to
- Fixed storybook components docs for 2 features.
- Raised a ticket for a component to render markdown text within vocabulary itself.
- Raised a few other issues for potential hacktoberfest contributions.
Thank you for your time! To be continued...
