2021-10-20[edit | edit source]

    • Fixed storage of secrets on k8s.
    • Python installed on backends which enables syntax highlighting.
  • Cook: Kartographer working.
    • Started testing on database migration slowness.
    • Made a high level list of remaining steps to be done.
    • Recruited Jayden/Gaz to work on rs-dev regressions.

2021-10-22[edit | edit source]

  • Kitty: Timeline extension is now working.
    • Fixed the Google Cloud Storage (GCS) extension adapted from AWS.
  • Cook: Testing database latency.
    • Found a way to improve speed of migration, if we want to rewrite lots of scripts. Still looking for fundamental breakthrough to understanding latency. Would contribute to reducing write times for most actions.
  • Andmcadams+Riblet: Continued work on CSS fixes.
    • Major progress on Mobile skin. Biggest change is that Common.css is now loaded on all skins, so desktop specific styles need to be extracted to Vector.css.
    • Additional fixes to desktop darkmode.

2021-10-23[edit | edit source]

  • Andmcadams departs
  • Cook: More speed testing of database.
    • Confirmed a likely reasonable way to improve performance. Requires manual modifications to some of the migration scripts, which isn't done yet.
  • Kitty: Fixed thumbnails.
    • Installed memcache container, which should be used with the parser cache but isn't yet working.
    • Rolled back to old Tabber because TabberNeue vertical sizing bug is significantly worse.
  • Andmcadams: Fixed RSC CSS regressions.
    • RSC basically complete. Much simpler than OSW because there's no dark mode or mobile.
  • Riblet: CSS work.
    • Contributed to RSC CSS regressions for personal links and messageboxes.
    • Fixed tabber CSS since we rolled back TabberNeue.
    • Fixed mobile infobox bonuses (also on live site).
