End of semester presentation

Please continue checking the dashboard through winter break - the repo will be updated as well as the blog.  I will be able to invest full time and attention to building a working deployment during that time.

Midterm Presentation

October has been particularly busy for me, as evident by the repo :(  I have taken a small bite into different aspects of the project but have yet to string them together - a bad habit, as IntuiTask suffers from the same fate as well.  November will provide more time and I am extremely excited to have a working (possibly unauthenticated) version uploaded soon as a first commit!

Progress update: week 4/5

I am still learning how to make a basic application with Flask.  I do not need databases (yet) though I may leave the functionality in there just in case.  Essentially I want a login page, and a settings page, which will include the basic config variables that might be ideal to change over the web.  Hopefully by next week, I will have a basic running page that allows anyone to login and view either a config or Access Denied page.

If you have any tips / suggestions, let me know.  I am still in beginning dev on this, so even suggestions for a different platform are welcome and will be appreciated!

supybotUI to be built on the Flask platform

I've done some comparing, and it seems Flask looks like the best contender for this project.   I have taken a look at Flask, django, and CherryPy.  If you think there is a better option, let me know sooner than later, and let me know why - otherwise, keep your eyes out on the code repo - I will be adding commits rapidly.

I am also adding the commit feed to the blog on the right side of the page - you should see it there now!

exRCOSist in #rcos dedicated!

The bot in #rcos and #supybotui on Freenode is now dedicated (Thanks Moorthy, Robert Escriva for helping with the setup.)

Feel free to visit and mess with it as much as possible - I need to figure out more issues with it, specifically plugins that should be admin only, and broken commands.

Announcement test

This is a test for the bot to announce on the channel when RSS is updated.  Lets see if it works..
