Meeting Date: 09-06-2022

Attended by: Benjamin Trenkle, Elisa Foltyn, Philip Walton, Alisha Kamat

Agenda: General discussion about the program’s format before commencing with the coding phase.

Key Points discussed:

  1. Identify major features, assign priorities and estimate the time needed to work on them (develop an initial roadmap).
  2. Ask queries on the Glip channels rather than on Joomla forums.
  3. If no documentation found for a particular feature, feel free to add it in the forums under the appropriate topic.
  4. A subdomain will be created for testing some of the SEO features.
  5. Can make any number of branches for different features added.

Agenda: Presentation and demo of the completed features, including the following

        [Last 2 features combined into a single pull request]

Key Points discussed:

  1. Improvements for Paragraph structure
    • Add line numbers before each paragraph in the list (would require further discussion as the TinyMCE editor does not provide line numbering. Also, the editor is responsive, so the line numbers will change based on the user’s device and display resolution).
  1. Feedback for Content Analysis
    • Add real time content analysis by moving each item from the Content Analysis section to the actual field in Article Edit View.
  1. UI Improvements
    • Add more colours/icons where relevant under SEO tab.
    • Highlight keywords, numbers.
  1. Extend all the Paragraph Structure improvement suggestions to Sentence Structure too. These include
    • Sorting by sentence length
    • Displaying the total count of long sentences
    • Line numbering feature (to be decided) 

 

For details and screenshots of the work done for each week, refer to the respective pull request.

The additional suggestions will be considered towards the end, based on time availability, after the core features have been completed.
