GSoC – week 2 : gearing up

During this week I focused my attention on the WordPress APIAPI An API or Application Programming Interface is a software intermediary that allows programs to interact with each other and share data in limited, clearly defined ways.. I’ve digged into it, looked at how they work, tried to understand which ones are the best and useful calls that best fits my purpose, and tried some calls (just to make sure that I’ve correctly understand the behavior).
Later on I’ve wrote some code (rude and rough, I admit) to execute this kind of calls, and, at the end, I think I will go with making the call, so also create the XML, using Qt. My milestone for the next week is to decide if it’s better to parse the returned XML in Qt or in Cascades (QML) itself.
I’ve also put some attention on the UIUI UI is an acronym for User Interface - the layout of the page the user interacts with. Think ‘how are they doing that’ and less about what they are doing./UXUX UX is an acronym for User Experience - the way the user uses the UI. Think ‘what they are doing’ and less about how they do it., so I made a first UI (just for the login), but I think I’ll complete it in a few days, I also had a discussion on how to make it (in the best way) with my mentor, so I will follow his advices, definitely.
I would also dealing, in the next week, with the bb10 API, to see if I can use it to make something better.
Currently I haven’t used the svn repository; when I will start building a primary version of the WordPress for BlackBerry 10 devices, in the next weeks, I will start uploading stuff, but now, there is no good code that need to be pushed somewhere 🙂
