Re: Sugar-devel Digest, Vol 79, Issue 61

Somewhere I got lost. I had originally understood docker as a mechanism 
to run Sugar on platforms other than an XO.

In learning to program in Python, I lean to the idea that it should be 
done with the Terminal Activity (command line, nano text editor). The 
use of an integrated
development environment (Pippy, IDLE, IPython, Eclipse) can be 
introduced as an advanced topic - incidentally IPython runs quite nicely 
on an XO).

I can't image a professional building a web application using Pippy. I 
think students should learn to build web applications using standard 
methods: HTML, CSS, and Javascript. Again, using the command line and 
nano. The GSOC project to build an interactive javascript shell reflects 
the fact that Python has an inherently better development environment 
and that Javascript really needs an interactive display of the web page 
(and debugging via the console.log mechanism).

Although Sugar is becoming more dependent on internet access, that is 
not an option for many deployments. Flask or Django could be introduced 
as an advanced topic with the framework hosted on the school server. 
This will require some careful planning so that student interaction does 
not introduce instability since there is normally no qualified system 
administrator available to deal with server problems.

Docker in Sugar/XO laptop

Was reading this and I am curious if any work has been done on Docker on XO laptops or in a Sugar environment?
Read  previous threaded exchanges between
Michaël Ohayon and Gonzalo Odiard.

This is Docker on a RPi

Hi,

My name is Utkarsh Dhawan,I am a Second Year Engineering student at Mumbai University.I am new to the open source community but have started developing a keen interest in it.I want to contribute to this community with a soul purpose of learning something out of it.This summer I would be working on the project Web Confusion under the mentoring of Tony Anderson. The project would be merged with the Interactive Javascript Shell and would aim at teaching the user Web Designing skills.

Hoping to have a sugary experience.

Thanking You,

SOAS Fedora 22 Final Release: Collaboration in Activities

With SOAS Fedora 22 coming to the stage of final release I would like to know if we can expect the collaboative
features of Sugar to be functioning.

I tried Memorize, Maze and Write with two SOAS and it did not work. Have reported this issue before.

Cheers

Re: Sugar-devel Digest, Vol 79, Issue 51

Hi, Sam

As part of GSOC, I am mentoring the Interactive Javascript Project and 
have four candidates for the unfunded Web Confusion project who have 
volunteered to continue in support of the community. Since the two 
projects are closely related and since there are five people involved 
plus me, I have had the group set up to allow the project participants 
to communicate. I don't think this level of detail is appropriate for a 
general list. Of course, anyone who wants to get involved as mentor or 
contributor is welcome to join.

Communication between two Activities

Hi guys,

What is the best approach to communicate two activities ?

For example, from one activity send a message to the other, when it is received, the activity should refresh a widget.

From dbus, my be ? Using precense service ?

Thanks in advance.

Gustavo.

The new kid on the block


Hi everyone,

I am Vibhor Sehgal , a student from India. I am new to this list !
I heard about SugarLabs through Google Summer of Code and wanted to contribute to the community as a summer of code intern which was definitely a selfish motive.I worked on the project Web Confusion which is being mentored by Tony Anderson, but i wasn't selected for Summer of code 2015.

However, Tony gave me a chance to work as a volunteer on this project during the summer. I got so attached to this community and my mentor, who is indeed very supportive that i couldn't refuse the offer. So, I and a group of few more developers are working on the project Web Confusion which basically will teach students about the web technologies like Html, Css and Javascript.

I have created a small google group also,so that each and everybody can stay up to date. We'd love to add more people to the group. Also, I have created a mock activity which I will be hosting soon on Github.

Feels Great!
Thanks!
