The Week Ending March 10

by Lewis, Cory last modified Mar 10, 2017 07:48 PM

This week my team put together a large chunk of our project proposal. We used our "Resource Hub" on Google Docs that had the questions we had for Kim, the answers he gave us, and a lot of links to various Plone repositories and documents on GitHub that we thought would be useful; we used this doc as the basis for our proposal, which explained what our plan is and who is doing what on our project. In lab this week we used maven and the OpenMRS sdk to create a dummy module that we plugged into maven. It was rather difficult for a lot of us. I chose to install maven on my Windows 10 machine and had a lot of difficulties getting the Command Prompt to recognize the updated Path variable. Eventually, I got it working, but then I had a difficult time getting OpenMRS to work. By the end of the lab I was able to get a web page up, but when I navigated to my module, I just got an error message. Because I had to catch a bus, I was not able to take the time to get it working and get checked off in the lab, so I will have to get checked off next lab period. Luckily I got it to work at home after I started over and did a couple things differently. Overall, working with maven wasn't a lot of fun and I don't look forward to using it again.

This coming week I plan to continue looking through Plone's documents and GitHub repositories to be better prepared to do the project. Cooper already set up a GitHub repository for our project with some documentation and stuff; I plan on getting that into my VM so I can start playing with it. I also intend to start my individual project this week - time permitting.
