Current Status: I am working on deployment at http://104.131.212.220/
. It's working fine, but I faced some errors during conversion. I
actually added boolean flag converted:true to each model when it's
100% converted but when I tested it seems some g models may have some
errors in conversion and that could lead to less than 100% conversion.
Non converted models don't show up in timeline as they can't be seen
in viewer so I am thinking to add 70% or 60% as acceptable conversion.
There are other fixes that are required and I am working on those.

Hi,

I have setup production environment on one of the servers provided by Dr.
Rai, but have been unable to replicate things on the BRL-CAD server. To
server Python(Django) applications via Apache, a module named mod_wsgi is
required to be installed on the server. Installation instructions for
FreeBSD are mentioned in this doc:
http://code.google.com/p/modwsgi/wiki/InstallationOnFreeBSD. Some aliases
need to be set up then after this.

A couple of design questions:
 - What should the homepage design comprise of?
 - What should be used as BRL-CAD logo? I have been using the logo at
http://beta.brlcad.org/wp/ until now.

Another issue at hand is archiving of log files after they have been
populated in the database. I remember Sean mentioning the files should be
archived in a way that enables easy searches for them. Right now, I just
dump them into a folder which is clearly not ideal. Any inputs regarding
this would be helpful. Also, would be great if I can be provided previous
logs so that I have a decent sample to showcase aggregate analytics.

How should the user accounts be handled? Should the Benchmark project have
separate user accounts? There were discussions on supporting different
OAuth providers, but it didn't reach any conclusions. Should they
incorporated as well?

Cheers!

After pulling the changes and updating the smtp.js with my
credentials, I tried both browse button as well as drag-drop option on
file upload page but both didn't worked.

But it is working fine at: http://104.131.212.220/. I successfully
uploaded and viewed models.

Information filled at "user settings" was not saved.

Color of description texts at "user settings" and "upload" page is too light.

BTW, nice animation.

Do provide me with your console output. I just cloned again on my
machine and one more machine (to test) and it worked. You need to
change mged and g-obj path in server/cfs_uploader.js. Also tell me
your meteor version.

As earlier told, I am still working on it. Will be better in couple of days.

For logo AFAIK, yes the logo used in new theme is to be used but this
copy of logo is not very good.  You must check GCI tasks from last
year. We have like SVG and CSS-Only versions of this logo and they are
just awesome!. So if we are going to merge this with the main website
than I guess one copy of either SVG or CSS logo can be used on all the
web apps we have.

Hello

            My name is Djimeli Konrad and i am interested in contributing
to the open source through brlcad. I am primarily a c/c++ programmer from
Africa and would like to work on any of the brlcad geometry converters.
Presently i am doing some research on how import and export work but i can
not really decide on weather to improve any of the existing converter or
create a new one among those on the ideas page, since i do not fully
understand the concept and also my limitation. I would be glad to get any
pointer that would help facilitate my understanding of this aspect and i am
willing to dedicate the rest of my summer holiday to learn more about
brlcad and especially file import and export as it seem to be something
very interesting to work on.

Thanks
Konrad

Hi Konrad and welcome!  Glad to hear about your interests.  Working on converters is actually a high priority for us right now because we're creating a new geometry conversion library that can be embedded into applications external to BRL-CAD.  This requires improving our existing converters and implementing new ones.

To get started, I would recommend first extending / improving one of our existing converters.  It's harder to read code than to write code, but that will give a much better understanding of how our converters work.  It will also better prepare you for writing a new converter, should you attempt that as well.

A simple task to begin with would be to make any existing converter convert all top-level objects by default.  Currently, you specify which file (e.g., myfile.g) and which object(s) to convert (e.g., object1 and object2), so when you run something like g-stl, the usage looks like this:

Usage: g-stl [-bvi8] [-xX lvl] [-P num_cpus] [-a abs_tess_tol] [-r rel_tess_tol] [-n norm_tess_tol] [-D dist_calc_tol] [-o output_file_name.stl | -m directory_name] brlcad_db.g object(s)

And a typical use would be:

g-stl -o myfile.stl myfile.g object1 object2

You could make it work so that you don't have to specify any objects:

g-stl -o myfile.stl myfile.g

This would convert all top-level object(s).  To make that work, you'll probably want to use the db_ls() function (e.g., something like db_ls(dbip, DB_LS_TOPS, &paths); will get a list of objects).  The converters are in the src/conv directory.  You can see db_ls in use in the src/libged directory.

Cheers!
Sean
