With 25th May approaching, I’m confident to say that I’ve completed my first evaluation (although some grammatical and styling rechecking is left). Now, as directed by Kai, I’ve implemented the
wiki_login.m function from using the internals of
url-transfer.cc/h class. I’ve scapped the earlier design of implementing
cookie_manager.m script and
libcurl_wrapper.cc class for doing the cookie thing and directly implemented
__wiki_login__ as an internal function in
urlwrite.cc. A user is now able to log into api.php
To test my implemtation:
Make a test account on
wiki.octave.spacewith username and password of your choice.
hg clone https://firstname.lastname@example.org/me_ydv_5/octave
hg up ocs
cd path/to/your/build/tree/and execute
wiki_login ("https://wiki.octave.space/api.php", yourUsername, yourPassword);
If it is all successful, you should see a prompt
Success: logged in as yourUsername.
Other than that, I’m really grateful to jwe for moving the
version.h file to
libinterp as this is needed to get the
OCTAVE_VERSION for the user agent (see week 3 for this). Eariler, it was in
libinterp and we must not use anything from
liboctave as it should be compiled irrespective of the former.
NOTE: You may need to re-run
./configure due to above changes.
Lastly, I would request to someone who uses Windows (My Windows ran into some problem and I’m now unable to connect to internet, I’ll reinstall it whenever I get some time) and/or Mac OS to test my implementation and report any errors.
Needless to say I’m always looking forward to constructive feedback/criticism.
