Student projects update

February 26, 2012 § Leave a comment

It has been a few weeks since the latest update on the Student Projects in which I take part as mentor or helper.

Let us see what has changed.

Save as .epub (Firefox add-on)

(Kevin CORRE, Benjamin ROCHER, Elie AHUMA, Sylvestre ANTOINE – Université d’Orléans, MIAGE + IRAD)

Objective Add the following feature to Firefox, as an add-on: Save a page and its resources as one file, using open standard .epub. This open-standard file can then be transferred to just about any device, edited with LibreOffice, etc.

Current status Unfortunately, I have not had contact from the students in a few weeks. Looking at the source code, I have the impression that it is rather advanced, and that they are only a few hours of work away from a first version. I am counting on you guys! Also, do not forget that I want you to communicate publicly.

Detect use of the wrong account (Thunderbird add-on)

(Baptiste MEYNIER, Johan JANS, Maxime DENOYER, Mustapha OUCHEIKH – Université d’Orléans, MIAGE + IRAD)

Objective Add the following feature to Thunderbird, as an add-on: Detect that a message is being sent to a correspondant using the wrong account (e.g. using a professional account for a personal message or a personal account for a professional message).

Current status Still experimenting. A first version of the user interface is in place, some experiments on how to react to the “send” event, a database (empty so far, afaict), but no learning of accounts yet. Hey guys, I hope you manage to complete that project before the deadline.

Simplify the addition of several alarms for the same event in Lightning (Thunderbird add-on)

(Loïc LE MÉRO aka Morkai – Université d’Évry, MIAGE 2)

Objective Lightning offers the ability to add several alarms for the same event (e.g. 1 day before then 15 minutes before). Improve the user interface to make this more discoverable.

Current status I have seen a working demo. Next step is submitting the patch to Lightning. Keep up the good work!

Extend Lightning alarms (Thunderbird add-on)

(Anto DOMINIC PAUL – Université d’Évry, MIAGE 2)

Objective Lightning offers the ability to attach alarms to an event. Extend this feature to make it possible to play a music or execute a script when the alarm is triggered.

Current status Unclear. I have not seen any working code yet. Anto?

Handle resources in Lightning events (Thunderbird add-on)

(Julien LACROIX – Université d’Évry, MIAGE 2)

Objective Add the ability to attach resource requirements to events: a picnic requires food (one resource), drinks (one resource), cutlery (one resource), etc… Who will bring them? Also, add the ability to attach a geolocation to events, to help finding the way. Who brings the beer?

Current status I understand that we now have working demos. I do not know about packaging as an add-on yet.

Remind me that I need to reply within 24h/remind me that I expect a reply within 24h (Thunderbird add-on)

(Vincent LEGUEVEL, Mickael MAINGE – Université d’Évry, MIAGE 2)

Objective Add the ability to mark a message as “I need to answer within …” / “I expect an answer within …”. Nag the user as long as she hasn’t sent or received the reply.

Current status I have seen demo of a small subset of the features. It’s a good start, guys, but I certainly hope that you will deliver something complete by the deadline.

Follow this project This project lives on two Bugzilla bugs: need to send / expect to receive.
