I spent all day manually testing code before its handed over to actual users on a sandbox. Fixed some things that bubbled up. Added some more tickets for later. I’m gonna need a week-long nap when I’m done.
This web app I’m updating is now in the testing phase. And, back when I first wrote it, I was a baby dev and didn’t know about automated testing. Now I a) know about testing but not how to write tests, and b) don’t have time to both learn and write tests. So I’m manually testing everything.
I didn’t really need a new toy to play with. I have a php web app to fix. And a Django app that wants more features. And so much documentation that needs to be written.
My daytime php project is going well – I made a lot of progress on it today. My evening project of developing a python sketch for MagTag is also going well. I want it to use a connected PM2.5 particle sensor to show both the raw sampling data and calculated AQI values for PM 2.5 AT 24, 8, and 1 hour sample periods. So far it shows the raw data.
I fussed with my MagTag all day and got exactly nowhere with it. Well, it’s had a CircuitPython upgrade from 6.3 to 7.2. But otherwise, nada. Known-good sketches run fine. But it doesn’t like the new one I’m putting together. Jerk.
Spent most of the day working out updates to one of my RasPi sensor scripts so it uses PySimpleGUI and while I was rearranging everything I threw as much as possible into functions.
Did some layout tweaking. I think I’m mostly happy with it.
Overdue for bed by 2 1/4 hours. Best be off.
