Hi there! It’s been a long time since my last blog post. In the break, I was facing my semester exams, and I felt better stay away from my laptop rather than books. Though other reason of not remaining online was my Nokia C5 mobile got pick-pocketed 😦 and I didn’t have any mode to remain online. After the my exam ended, I again bought the same mobile and started on working on transifex. I had already written some code before the exam so that anonymous users can access to the files through web-interface. But, mpessas and rtnpro suggested me to work on allowing anonymous access through the API and write some tests for the same.
So, after the exams this was my first task in hand, I went through the Transifex APIv2 docs and made some changes in the code to get the job done. I also wrote the test with the help of @rtnpro. I was also facing problem with the notification settings bar in the profile settings page. Though the ENABLE_NOTICES settings was set to True. The notification settings bar was not showing up. After the studying the code for the templatetag settings, I found out that the templatetag itself was the cause for the issue. Moving the templatetag inside the content_main block in templates/userena/base_userena.html solved the issue.
In the mean time, I read about the revised version of the Microsoft Translation API. Earlier, the Bing AppID was enough to get the work done. But now, the Bing AppID is deprecated and is no longer supported. To use the Microsoft Translator API, one has to obtain an access token using Client ID and Client Secret obtained after registering an application at Azure DataMarket and use it for the calls to the Microsoft Translator API. The process of obtaining the access token can be seen here . The Microsoft Translator API is well documented and it help me a lot. Currently, I am working on implementing the new Microsoft Translator API in transifex.
I am also currently working on the feature approved by jkal to we allow users to set their username after the first login through the social method in transifex (Facebook, Google, Twitter and LinkedIn).
