madrazrhow is adding sub org related to diffs?00:00
jasvirmadrazr: I means to say, for diffs I we have to use library and I specified it there. But what about other like sub-orgs. According to me, to create sub orgs we need to add some lines of code not like diffs. So for this, do I have to give example code in techincal detail section?00:03
madrazrjasvir: what does sub orgs have to do with diffs00:04
jasvirmadrazr: Nothing to do with. I am giving example of diff that for diff we can use a library so I specified it there. But sub orgs is not like diffs.00:05
madrazrif it is not like diffs00:05
jasvirmadrazr: for sub orgs, we need to add some line of codes.00:05
madrazrwhat does it have to do now?00:05
madrazrI am seriously missing something here00:05
madrazram I misreading something?00:06
jasvirmadrazr: Forget about previous messages. Let me explain it from 0.00:06
jasvirmadrazr: I am talking about two task specified in my proposal. One is implementing diffs and other is impelementing sub orgs.00:07
madrazrjasvir: Oh!00:07
*** matzipan has joined #melange00:07
madrazrwhy are you doing that?00:07
jasvirmadrazr: For implementing diffs, we need a library so I specified it there.00:07
madrazrread my points from the logs earlier today00:07
madrazrto ashish00:08
madrazrjasvir: please read the logs first00:08
madrazrbefore we proceed any further00:08
jasvirmadrazr: ok00:08
matzipanHey guys, I'm getting an error. After granting access to my Google Account, I'm getting a 414 "Request URI too large"00:08
matzipanlogging in from an anonymous browser session seems to fix the problem00:09
madrazrmatzipan: yeah, Google OAUTH weirdness that is00:09
madrazrmatzipan: whenever we see that problem our recommended workaround is just what you did :)00:09
ollyif only you knew some people who worked at google00:10
madrazrmatzipan: to try registering in a private session00:10
madrazrolly: so true :P00:10
jasvirmadrazr: Oh wow!!00:10
jasvirmadrazr: Thats what I am looking for00:10
madrazrjasvir: for?00:10

*** Guest55215 is now known as skullbocks00:26
*** skullbocks is now known as Guest8945500:26
madrazrjasvir: I mean to say00:32
madrazrproposing two entirely different things as a single GSoC project is a bad idea00:32
madrazrI hope you read that part00:32
*** enchilader has quit IRC00:33
jasvirmadrazr: You talked about GCI project in GSoC.00:33
shikhermadrazr: ping00:34
*** suranga_ has quit IRC00:35
madrazrshikher: pong00:35
madrazrshikher: no matter what comments you get on your GDocs proposal00:36
madrazryou should get it into the system first00:36
madrazrshikher: submit it on Melange00:36
madrazrshikher: if we need improvements even after deadline we can do that outside google-melange.com too00:36
madrazrshikher: but without having your proposal in the system before deadline at all we can't do anything00:36
jasvirmadrazr: 2-3 days agos, I asked you that Is it necessary that I have to solve all issues listed on idea page and you answer was "ideally yes". So I concluded from that project is about solve all issues.00:36
madrazrshikher: please, please submit whatever the best proposal you think you have so far00:37
shikhermadrazr: yes. i'm so sorry for delaying the submission. exams. writing a paper for a conference. other stuff also.00:37
madrazrshikher: you don't have to be sorry :)00:37
jasvirmadrazr: So, please clarify it. You mean I should concentrate only on diff feature?00:37
madrazrwe haven't started reviewing any proposals yet other than marking obvious spams00:38
shikhermadrazr: u will find it before u go to sleep. thts a promise, more to myself than to u. :)00:38
madrazrshikher: ^00:38
madrazrshikher: good!00:38
madrazrjasvir: diff feature is well worth a GSoC project IMO00:39
shikhermadrazr: the reason I pinged u was tht, wat do u think about saving a whole proposal in the blobstore?00:40
madrazrshikher: I am not a fan of the idea :)00:40
shikhermadrazr: too many resources?00:40
jasvirmadrazr: Please check out this : http://www.thousandparsec.net/~irc/%23melange/%23melange.2014-03-13.log.html#t2014-03-13T07:53:2100:40

*** denysbut_ has joined #melange00:41
madrazrshikher: whenever even someone uses the word Blobstore my reaction is like "Run. Run from here"00:41
madrazrshikher: not resources00:41
madrazrshikher: blobstore is such a weird API00:41
madrazrshikher: why would you want to use blobstore for storing data?00:42
madrazrshikher: the weirdness comes from the very first thing about blobstore00:42
shikhermadrazr: doesn't melange use it?00:42
madrazrshikher: to store your data in a blobstore you need to get a separate blobstore URL00:42
madrazrsend your request there first00:42
madrazrblobstore will strip out all the blob like content from your HTTP request00:43
madrazrstore it in the blobstore00:43
*** denysbutenko has quit IRC00:43
madrazrand then rewrite your HTTP request entirely00:43
madrazralong with headers00:43
madrazrand send it back to your application00:43
madrazrthere is this period/phase when you totally lose control of your data00:44
jasvirmadrazr: So can I concenrate on diff feature only?00:44
madrazrI don't like that00:44
madrazrshikher: we use it where it is inevitable00:44
shikhermadrazr: are u saying the data is not secure?00:44
madrazrshikher: no no, OMG no00:45
madrazrI did not say anything about security00:45
shikhermadrazr: then wat do u mean by lose control?00:45
madrazrshikher: it is about not knowing what is going on00:45
madrazrshikher: for example, the biggest problem we had for a long time was the way blobstore rewrote HTTP requests00:46
madrazrafter stripping out the blob content00:46
madrazrshikher: on the local SDK it would use Python's email module from standard library to rewrite the HTTP request00:46
madrazrand this email module would use the platform specific line endings00:47
madrazrwhich meant on Linux it used LF as line ending00:47
madrazrbut the RFC for HTTP requests require CRLF as line endings00:48
madrazrwhich broke all our frameworks on SDK when we were developing blobstore related features00:48
madrazrthis was a major headache00:48
madrazrfor a long time I had a Django middleware patch for local SDK that would rewrite all the requests again after getting it back from Blobstore to make LF to CRLF00:49
madrazrshikher: this is what I mean by losing control of our own data00:49
madrazrshikher: we don't know what Blobstore does in between00:49
madrazrand we cannot control that00:49
shikhermadrazr: yes00:49
madrazrshikher: avoid blobstore at all costs when you can00:50
madrazrjasvir: I think that is a good idea00:50
jasvirmadrazr: Ok.00:51
madrazrjasvir: I may be contradicting myself here00:51
ollythe first rule of blobstore is you don't use blobstore?00:51
madrazrsorry for the confusion00:51
shikhermadrazr: ok. so we have ndb datastore and drive as the alternatives that I am aware of. any others?00:51
madrazrolly: try avoiding blobstore until it becomes inevitable00:51
jasvirmadrazr: Is that enough for GSoC ?00:51
madrazrjasvir: does mentor and student flow list both diff feature00:52
madrazrand sub organizations for umbrella orgs?00:52
jasvirmadrazr: no00:52
jasvirmadrazr: Only mentor flow list.00:52
madrazrjasvir: Ok. I am not contradicting myself then (yet :P)00:52
madrazrjasvir: wait, mentor flow lists both of them?00:53
jasvirmadrazr: Yeah00:53
madrazrsub org and diffs?00:53
madrazrjasvir: that's weird00:53
madrazrjasvir: that's too much for a GSoC I think00:53
*** MarinersRevenge has quit IRC00:53

madrazrshikher: which of your earlier questions did I miss?00:58
shikhermadrazr: ok. so we have ndb datastore and drive as the alternatives that I am aware of. any others?00:58
shikhergoogle drive*00:59
*** denysbut_ has quit IRC00:59
madrazrshikher: why drive again? Enlighten me?01:01
madrazrshikher: why not just datastore?01:01
madrazrshikher: what's wrong with the datastore?01:02
shikhermadrazr:  nothing wrong. we can use both. because there is no need for unecessary storage on Melange's datastore when we can store it on user's drive. Also, user gets more benefits.01:03
madrazrshikher: my argument is, there is no need to bring the complexity of another API01:03
madrazrand dependency on it01:04
madrazrits outages01:04
madrazrand what not01:04
madrazrshikher: and why is Melange's datastore "unnecessary storage"?01:04
madrazrshikher: how does user get more benefits by storing on drive?01:05
shikhermadrazr: but its an extra feature tht is really helpful. Importing and exporting proposals from/to Melange wud be awesome.01:05
*** jasvir has left #melange01:05
madrazrshikher: latter yes01:05
shikhermost students make proposals on google docs.01:05
madrazrbut we should do that locally01:05
madrazrshikher: we should sync with the drive content01:05
madrazrshikher: but not use it to store entirely01:05
shikherdo u really think the current editor compares anything to the tinyMCE?01:05
shikhercurrent google doc editor*01:06
madrazrshikher: no01:06
madrazrbut that is not our goal either01:06
madrazrour goal is not to support a full Google Doc style editor01:06
shikhermadrazr: i agree wid doing both.01:06
madrazrI would love to have some of its features01:06
madrazrshikher: but we don't want everything from Docs01:06
madrazrshikher: my real concern is01:07
madrazrshikher: we don't want to create storage dependency on Drive01:07
shikherboth - datastore and drive.01:07
shikhermadrazr: drive wud be additional.01:07
madrazrshikher: I really hate to tell our mentors and org admins, "Sorry you cannot review the proposals now because Drive is going through an outage"01:07
madrazrshikher: it just happened, there was a Sheets outage today01:08
madrazrshikher: the problem is01:08
madrazrthere are two ways of building a system from components01:08
shikhermadrazr: datastore wud be primary. drive wud be only for the benefits for the students.01:08
madrazrshikher: I am not sure what you mean by this?01:09
*** asmeurer_ has joined #melange01:11
shikhermadrazr: melange would access the data using the datastore i.e. rendering, etc. we give an additional option to the student, to save it to his drive.01:11

*** downey has joined #melange01:16
madrazrshikher: I am not too inclined to give the "Also save it drive" feature01:20
madrazrshikher: I would say "Sync with your proposal on drive" is a decent enough option01:20
madrazrshikher: if that is what you mean01:21
madrazrshikher: html reverse parse?01:21
shikhermadrazr: I know saving to drive is not that useful but why not? sync would be awesome, of course.01:22
madrazrshikher: that is true of a lot of other things01:22
madrazrshikher: building another email service within Melange is not that useful01:22
madrazrbut why not?01:22
madrazrlet us build GMail again01:22
madrazrshikher: no?01:23
shikhermadrazr:  for html reverse parse, pardon my lack of technical terminology. currently the tinyMCE editor is converting text to html, right?01:23
shikhermadrazr: i get ur point about 'why not'.01:24
madrazrshikher: it does not really do any conversion01:25
madrazrshikher: however, yes. html is the format it uses for mark up01:25
shikhermadrazr: mark up. yes. thts it. so how do i mark down?01:26
madrazrshikher: you just want to strip out all the html tags?01:26
shikhermadrazr: wat about links and images and tables?01:27
*** Guest89455 is now known as skullbocks01:27
madrazrshikher: what about them?01:27
madrazrshikher: what are you trying to achieve?01:27
shikherhow does tinyMCE render these?01:27
*** skullbocks is now known as Guest2634601:27
madrazrshikher: tinyMCE stores the actual content along with the markup01:28
shikhermadrazr: before I answer that, can u tell me how are proposals stored in datastore, currently?01:28
madrazrshikher: so it knows how to render01:28
madrazrshikher: along with the markup01:28
madrazrhowever tinyMCE gives us01:29
madrazrshikher: a very very simple experiment to do01:29
shikhermadrazr: we are storing it with markup right?01:29
madrazror to try it out yourselves is to go to your proposals page01:29
madrazrtype in some content there01:29
madrazrand see the plain text view in your tinyMCE editor01:30
madrazrshikher: that should show you the actual marked up format that tinyMCE generates01:30
*** denysbutenko has joined #melange01:30
madrazrshikher: we take the data in that format, do some cleanups to remove executable JS code and such01:31
shikhermadrazr: ok. I knw how to approach this now. thnx.01:31
madrazri.e. sanitize the data01:32
madrazrand then we store it01:32
madrazrthankfully we don't use SQL01:32
madrazrwhich saves from injection attacks01:32
madrazr*saves us from01:32
madrazrshikher: great! NP01:32
shikhermadrazr: btw there are ways to counter injection attacks. nyways I have a proposal to work on. thnx for ur help, again. :)01:33
madrazrshikher: counter?01:34
madrazrshikher: of course01:34

ayushkNo its on this link - https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ikbv3gKICjk2w6YR5r611ZeGfQX6nDEHcTS87fTUYj0/edit07:13

*** denysbutenko has joined #melange07:14
*** rigelk has joined #melange07:14
madrazrayushk: why would you worry about it. It was a document that was shared among Melange developers07:14
madrazrbefore flushing out the details07:14
madrazrit was basically just a brain-dump of ideas that we had from the All-hands07:14
madrazrit was before we even thought about how to present the ideas07:15
madrazrin a more approachable form to students07:15
madrazrayushk: anyway07:15
madrazrthis particular line means that we should build an abstraction for hosting files07:15
madrazrand the individual views should not worry about where the files are being stored07:16
madrazrand should handle it exactly the same way it handles other data like regular datastore data07:16
ayushkmadrazr: okay. So can you explain this - "Melange doesn't yet have a subsystem that makes resource ingestion, hosting, and distribution easy for both users and feature developers". What I see is that only upload facility of these files is required - https://code.google.com/p/google-summer-of-code/downloads/list07:16
tpb<http://ln-s.net/BCs0> (at code.google.com)07:16
ayushkmadrazr: upload/download of enrollment form, consent form, project is already there.07:17
madrazrayushk: that is one of the goals yes07:17
madrazrayushk: it is already there in a very crude form07:18
madrazrayushk: just a basic functionality07:18
madrazrwhat we need is a more sophisticated upload/download functionality07:18
ayushkmadrazr: So do I need to create a generic model(the db.Model) for all files that are uploaded on melange?07:20
madrazrayushk: the same thing I have told you a couple of times before?07:20
madrazrayushk: at least one reference from our conversation http://www.thousandparsec.net/~irc/%23melange/%23melange.2014-03-05.log.html#t2014-03-05T21:33:0407:20
tpbTitle: Wednesday, 2014-03-05 (at www.thousandparsec.net)07:20
madrazrayushk: about what we need07:20
madrazrayushk: no no, it cannot be a generic model07:21
madrazrayushk: blobstore references should be isolated or segregated the same way the rest of the data is07:21
madrazrayushk: what we need is for the views to not worry about the intrinsic details of how the blobstore API works07:22
*** rishabh_ has joined #melange07:22
madrazrayushk: at views level, all the view should care about is that it has data from the forms07:22
madrazrit has to be validated07:22
madrazrand if validated it should be stored07:22
madrazror validation error be raised07:22
madrazrit shouldn't be necessary for the views to worry about the differences in the Blobstore API07:23
madrazrcompared to the datastore API07:23
madrazrthose details should be abstracted away07:23
ayushkmadrazr: Can you give me a code sample of any view for reference.07:23
madrazrayushk: referencing what?07:23
ayushkmadrazr: Where abstraction is not present and the view has to take care of differences in the blobstore api and datastore api.07:24
ayushkmadrazr: just so that I can understand the problem properly07:25
madrazrayushk: didn't I give you the link already?07:26

ayushkmadrazr: I am having trouble figuring out what you said earlier - "it shouldn't be necessary for the views to worry about the differences in the Blobstore API07:44
ayushkcompared to the datastore API".  Please explain.07:44
madrazrayushk: I will turn this around to you and give this as an exercise07:48
madrazrayushk: first exercise for you is to find out where the code is for student enrollment form uploads07:49
madrazrclue is the URL07:49
madrazrayushk: what do you want me to explain about it?07:50
madrazrayushk: have you read the blobstore API documentation?07:50
madrazrayushk: and have a rough idea of datastore API?07:50
*** ayushpix has quit IRC07:52
ayushkmadrazr: yes I have read the documentation. I understand how these two are different. What I don't understand is how to make validation same for data coming from both datastore and blobstore?07:53
*** rigelk has quit IRC07:56
ayushkmadrazr: sorry, got to go again. Got a class. I will try to understand what is different in both the cases (static content and enrollment form). I will bug you then. Thanks07:57

madrazrayushk: they are not different22:17
madrazrI never said they were :)22:18
madrazrayushk: what I said were different were the datastore API and the blobstore API22:18
madrazrthe way we store data into them22:18
madrazrand we don't want our views to be worrying about that?22:19
madrazr*about those differences I mean22:19
*** hcurtis0010 has joined #melange22:20
ayushkmadrazr: Any file that is uploaded is stored in the blobstore, right?22:24
ayushkmadrazr: The datastore is not used for storing files.22:24
madrazrayushk: correct22:24
ayushkmadrazr: so how come views have to worry about the differences? If its a view to upload a file, it will need blobstore api functionality. If its a view for text fields, it will need datastore api functionality.22:26
*** RaulT has joined #melange22:28
madrazrayushk: a view will almost never deal with only one thing22:28
madrazrayushk: even if worst comes to worst and the only thing we are doing is file upload22:28
madrazrayushk: we need to use the blobstore API to store the blob content itself into the blobstore22:29
madrazrayushk: and then get the key of that blob in the blobstore and store the key in the datastoe22:29
madrazrayushk: we already have to deal with the differences in the two APIs there22:29
ayushkmadrazr: so what we want is that if a form has, lets say, fields for text input and file upload, then we should be able to handle both of them and save the data accordingly.22:31
madrazrayushk: in a way the individual views do not have to worry22:32
madrazrabout the differences in the view22:32
madrazr*differences in the API22:32
madrazrshould be abstracted away22:32
ayushkmadrazr: so basically ithe problem is in the post of every view page. It has to work differently for different forms.22:35
ayushkfile upload form and text fields form22:35
ayushkmadrazr: and we want that it works the same way even if its a file upload or a text form.22:36

tpb<http://ln-s.net/BNh8> (at code.google.com)23:03

ayushkmadrazr: what will I have to chage in this to make it independent of the api difference?23:34
madrazrayushk: build a layer of abstraction23:34
madrazrthat saves the data to respective storage infrastructure23:34
madrazrdepending on the type of data23:34
madrazrand can be used by all the views/pages in Melange23:35
madrazrinstead of each page having to do this23:35
ayushkmadrazr: so every form submission will go to this layer and then data will be saved by this layer.23:35
madrazrayushk: correct23:36
ayushkmadrazr: The layer should be able to save data in the datastore and the blobstore as and when required.23:36
madrazrayushk: correct23:36
*** Gentlecat_ has quit IRC23:36
ayushkmadrazr: now its clear to me. About the static files, they are of different languages. So, we can have a field language in the model of the static files. The upload form can have a dropdown to select the language of the file. And when the students download the file, they can select the language and only those files will be listed.23:41
