Testing Gem & Hudson/Jenkins
UI - HTML Conventions
Progressive Enhancement Groundwork
Need: In order for Hudson to work correctly, we need to wrap starting jetty into the rake task that runs the tests.
Testing server is based on Blacklight's version of that class but was modified. Bess has patched it to do what we need and created a gem based on it.
When you're setting something up on Hudson, use this gem.
This pertains to a discussion on the hydra-ui list: http://groups.google.com/group/hydra-ui/browse_thread/thread/fe4889973a507a21
- Bess is looking into Cucumber tests for this
Suggestion: Everyone should read up on semantic HTML & Unobtrusive JS
- Julie will send out sections from her book
Make distinction between Libra Pilot code & Libra Production code:
The Pilot code, which has been absorbed into Hydrangea, was written by MediaShelf in a very short sprint where the priority was to create something that looked polished and had relatively complete Faculty Self-submission functionality. While the pilot did achieve that goal and does look polished, there are many things in the code that need to be cleaned up. This is to be expected from a pilot code base that's written quickly with a fundamental priority of getting something out there and meeting a tight deadline.
The Hydra Overview Dashboard and Hydra Contributor's Dashboard give a nice view of work that's going on in Hydra heads. They also call attention to the fact that we need to clean up the Roadmap of the core "Hydra" project.
Matt will look into this.
Bess suggested that we should also aim to have a very high level roadmap for potential adopters. Julie reported that the Hydra Website will contain this.
