Week 3 - 2015 1/12/15 - 1/18/15

This week:
  • Finish up API endpoints
  • Start on web/angular side of project

Day 1 1/12/15
Today:
Next steps:
  • Start on Angular front-end and see if we can get that bit working by end of week

Day 2 1/13/15
Today:
  • OK, time to start working on the angular app
  • Initial skeleton I have is OK, but the gulp build is extremely messy
  • Also, do I want to have angular-ui or stick with regular angular? I guess regular angular for now
  • Also, stick with bootstrap 3 for the moment, but foundation looks intriguing
  • OK, got a config file in place to manage all my vendor dependencies so that the gulp file is cleaner
  • Old build works again :)
Next steps:
  • Now, to figure out how to easily inject the API URL into the angular app
  • More skeleton cleanup and see if we can start tying in the services to the api endpoints

Day 3 1/14/15
Today:
  • Now, to figure out how to easily inject the API URL into the angular app
Next steps:
  • More work on ng constants stuff to get that finished up in build
  • More skeleton cleanup and see if we can start tying in the services to the api endpoints

Day 4 1/15/15
Today:
  • More work on ng constants stuff to get that finished up in build
    • Hmm, appears that gulp-hg-constant won’t let me specify the file name to write to
    • See if there’s something else out there that will
    • Try this one - https://github.com/ajwhite/gulp-ng-config
    • FUCK!! Accidentally deleted my build file I’ve been working on. Fucking gone. Guess that’ll teach me not to commit each night. Dammit.
    • OK, got it back to where it was, glad I remembered what the hell I had changed the last couple of nights
    • But, still have the same problem it’s naming the output file whatever the name of the input file is - wth people? Seriously?
    • Hmm, that plugin doesn’t work for doing custom constants
    • gulp-hg-constant worked fine (well, except for not letting me name it afterwards)
Next steps:
  • More skeleton cleanup and see if we can start tying in the services to the api endpoints

Day 5 - 6 1/16/15 - 1/17/15
Today:
  • SLACKER!
Next steps:

Day 7 1/18/15
Today:
  • Where did we leave off? Oh, OK I have the general ng constants being created
  • But they aren’t being injected yet?
  • Yeah, need to do this before we do the scripts so it all gets bundled together properly
  • Also, should make sure it’s being injected properly into the app
  • OK, it is loading the module, but I’m missing something because it isn’t letting me use the constants I’ve defined :/
Next steps:
