GSoC Status Update - Week 705 Aug 2013
This is a status update for my Google Summer of Code 2013 project - implementing advanced statistics importers for Amarok. Please read the first post if you would like to know more about the project.
Well, this is going to be kind of a boring update. I implemented unit tests for everything, Importers infrastructure (checking the documented properties, testing interactions) and concrete importers alike. There were some minor design changes but nothing interesting to talk about.
While making tests, I found and fixed a couple of small issues. So, nothing out of ordinary, stuff simply works. I don't feel that the tests are necessarily complete (and frankly, no tests are ever complete), but I'll still be working on them and adding new ones when I see fit. It's still barely past the GSoC midterm!
Oh, yeah, these tests I wrote at the beginning of the project? Not in the current branch. These were acceptance tests for synchronization - with new importers, it's the StatSyncing framework's responsibility and I realized that this kind of testing specifically for importers has no sense. So, these tests may yet see a come-back, in one form or another, but not as a part of Importers' test suite - rather as more generic StatSyncing framework tests. It's a low priority thing, though.
As always, you can check out my progress on my public Amarok clone. The branch
Thanks for reading! Coming up next week - Amarok 2.x synchronization!
