GSoC 2017 : Weekly Report #8

Week #8

Key accomplishments last week:

  • Fixed selenium tests related to Export, Table, Tracking, XSS

Key tasks stalled:


Tasks in the upcoming week:

  • Make selenium test-suite run consistently (i.e. prevent timing issues non-deterministic errors)
  • Explore the possibility of migrating to use php-webdriver by Facebook


Last week was cut short since I was travelling to attend my convocation ceremony at the BITS Pilani, Pilani campus. I graduated in the first division with a dual degree in M. Sc. (Hons.) Economics and B. E. (Hons.) Computer Science.

I spent the last week fixing the selenium tests related to Export, Table, Tracking, XSS. The related PR was made and merged at #13520. The test-suite is able to run successfully and finally I got a few successful selenium travis jobs after a long time, though I am still fixing some or the other error that keeps popping up on some jobs.

For this current week, I plan to continue working to making the selenium test-suite consistent to pass on every commit and prevent any non-deterministic errors. I would also want to explore a possibility to migrate the selenium tests to use Facebook’s php-webdriver.
