Latest Project Activity

Spencer Snygg  VoteWise.net Update #26

So we are heating up into the election. We had nearly a thousand visitors this week and hope to continue the growth.

The site was written in AngularJS which is being deprecated next June. This may leave us vulnerable to attack after that. So, we have to rebuild the whole thing in modern Angular. Now would be a great time to let us know of any problems you see or any cool things you would LIKE to see so we can plan for it.

And of course, we can always use coding help.

Marieke Jackson (Administrator) CHIME: COVID-19 Hospital Impact Model for Epidemics Update #5

We have here a dash application embedded inside a flask app as a context, being served by node. Callbacks work, db works, login / logout works. The test server is live on heroku, and the code is hosted on git. Basic instructions for running locally are in the README. Although this is aimed at UNIX users. The next goal is to write thorough documentation on developing locally and the deployment procedures. If anyone is interested in contributing in the meantime, please join #chime-app!

The URL for more info action is working… Next I want to add a click here for Google Maps directions…

I'll need to denote the lat and long for each address then follow the technique outlined here: https://wciconsulting.com/resources/tableau-tutorials/map-tutorial/#:~:text=URL%3A%20Use%20this%20URL%20Base,(separated%20by%20a%20comma).

I don't think there's a way to parse a gmap mailing address URL…
