Hello world, This is my second blog post for Google Summer of Code 2023, where I will share what I accomplished during the GSoC-23 community bonding period. Community Bonding period During this time GSoC contributors spend 3 weeks learning about their organization’s community and preparing for their coding project. They get to know mentors, read documentation, get up to speed to begin working on their projects During the community bonding period, the organizers took two introductory sessions kick starting our journey.
Hello world, This is my first blog post for Google Summer of Code 2023. During the Google Summer of Code timeline, I will be working on implementing the admin APIs in Tokodon. These APIs will provide mastodon moderators with a suite of moderation tools within Tokodon. I would like to thank Carl Schwan ❤ for mentoring me during Season of KDE and once again for this project. I am really grateful to work under his guidance.
Testing various functionalities of Tokodon’s Main Timeline. This is a continuation of my previous blog post where I shared my mid-journey experience while being a Season of KDE mentee. Week 7-8: These weeks were spent testing interaction buttons and different types of statuses. My first task was to write a test for boost, favourite, and bookmark interaction buttons in Tokodon to see if they worked as intended. For this, I identified the behaviour of different buttons using accerciser and then added the missing accessibility description for the respective buttons.
I was first introduced to Linux when my outdated computer could not run Windows anymore. I had previously heard some information about LINUX while surfing the internet, but my initial impression was that it was highly sophisticated and exclusively for programmers or mainly hackers :). I finally started using Linux Mint, and was moved by how quick and configurable it was 🤩. After a few distro-hopps, I finally settled for KDE Neon being amazed by how easily customizable it was ❣️
