Day4: Building BlogMe

Most of the application is done by completing user authentication ! I had a great learning today. Got a chance to learn a lot of new things about user authentication and access permissions. It was fun coding today.  Final tweaks have to be done on Day5 before I start making ajax requests. I’m really not aware how it’s done but I’m pumped up to learn all about ajax. I have researched a bit on google and youtube, Got a little understanding but I have to experiment before I get full understanding.

BlogMe is not the greatest blogging site you can find on internet but it servers the purpose. I feel very happy and proud that I could come this far in just 4 days ! What if I get a good solid week ? feels amazing to me! I will continuously keep adding new features to BlogMe until it is next wordpress!

My tasks for Day5 would be using ajax to make form submissions.

Day2: Building BlogMe

I have started making my web app beautiful by adding bootstrap and CSS to ‘Posts’ app. I could complete adding bootstrap for whole app in 1hr 30min. In between I have changed few behavioral aspects as well. Over all I have managed to complete scheduled work for the day.

I’m right now planning to use Facebook login, share and like API. I have read some from developers guide. After experimenting a bit with that I will finalize whether to use or not.

My plan for Day3 would be making final tweaks with CRUD operations, adding pagination, user authentication.

 

Day1: Building BlogMe

I’ve started building a django web app. The application I will be developing is a blogging application.

My first task was to develop a neat model on how the UI screens propagate, understand the models etc. I have put all my thoughts on paper before even I start coding. I made couple of iterations before concluding what I need to do ! I have decided to use jquery and ajax to give great user experience. I’m not great at these technologies but I’m confident that I can complete the work in given time frame.

The first app in BlogMe project is ‘Posts’. I have decided to have title, content of the post and time stamp in my ‘Post’ model. I have managed to complete all CRUD operations today. I have already stated using jquery.

I planning to add bootstrap, CSS to ‘Posts’ app on Day2 as well as add ‘share’ feature.
