Common Sense Eco-management

Common Sense Eco-management

At One Community, we are dedicated to demonstrating common sense eco-management, building a model with an all-volunteer team for “The Highest Good of All“. Our sustainable approaches encompass food, energy, housing, education, for-profit and non-profit economic design, social architecture, forwarding fulfilled living, and global stewardship practices. We’re not just building a community; we’re pioneering a model that becomes self-replicating. Our work will be used to create a global collaboration of teacher/demonstration hubs, evolving sustainability and regenerating our planet. Committed to creating a world that works for everyone, we’re open sourcing and free sharing the complete process.

Shengguang Jin (Mechanical Engineer) continued helping with the Vermiculture Toilet designs for the Earthbag Village. Shengguang focused on the material selection for components amenable to layer-by-layer 3D printing. The materials selection involved in hyperelastic solids is characterized by a capacity to soften in response to temperature drops and harden with rising temperatures, presenting a property-temperature relationship compared to crystalline metals. With this in mind, he explored an individual design that could possibly be 3D printed. Experience groundbreaking sustainability with One Community’s mechanical engineering team, prioritizing Common Sense Eco-management in designing the vermiculture toilet. Visual representations of his work are available in the accompanying images.

This week, Amiti Singh (Architectural Designer) continued her work helping with the interior design details for the rental rooms within the Duplicable City Center. Amiti advanced the 3D model for Room 10, focusing on incorporating a Boho-aesthetic Industrial theme. The integration of lighter materials into the room’s color palette was a key aspect of this development. Additionally, Amiti took up working on the material and furniture palette for the washroom of Room 10. Beyond her primary focus, she curated the final files for Rooms 4, 5, and 9. This task involved drafting plans for these rooms and detailed cost analyses and product specifications. Experience visionary architecture with One Community’s design team, where Common Sense Eco-management takes precedence in shaping the Duplicable City Center.

The core team also worked on testing HGN PRs, delivering precise results for One Community this week. We confirmed the case for PR 485, ensuring the seamless operation of a custom Infringement email, an increased number of required hours for the current week, and the addition of one Blue Square. All functions operated as intended. We tested a case for recording a video addressing a bug where a user needs to be on a team to view their tasks, providing a video demonstration. In her testing efforts, she resolved PR#1169 and scrutinized the functionality of PR#994 on both Development and production (Main) environments. While testing the latter, aimed at blocking all but Jae’s accounts from editing his accounts, we found that we could add and delete badges, and add teams for Jae’s accounts, and observed that there was no warning message during the profile modification process.

BLUE STEEL SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT TEAM

This week, the Blue Steel Team’s summary, covering their work on the Highest Good Network software, was managed by Yubo Sun (Full Stack Software Developer and Team Manager), and includes, Haohui Lin (Software Engineer)Mohit Bali (Software Developer), Nathan Hoffman (Software Engineer)Sávio Mendes (Full Stack Software Developer), Xiao Wang (Software Engineer), and Yongjian Pan (React.js/MongoDB Full Stack Software Developer). Elevate your software solutions with One Community’s Common Sense Eco-management, as the Highest Good Network software team pioneers sustainable practices for a greener and more efficient future. Yubo coordinated the team’s efforts, with Nathan reviewing Luis’s bug fix for managing summary intro, redirecting Jeffrey for linting problems, and engaging in discussions with Yubo about unit testing permissions. Nathan and the team worked on the permissions multi-checkbox, completed data entry, implemented it in various locations, and delved into hook research, leading to code refactoring for simplification. Nathan further accomplished all implementations of PermissionList, addressed associated bug fixes, and created PR 1548. In a parallel focus, Mohit, newly promoted to the Dev Team, worked on four high-priority PR reviews, investing time in familiarizing himself with the development task selection process. Despite the substantial time invested in understanding tasks and workflows, Mohit addressed the critical issue of the automatic timer stopping when viewing WBS details. Haohui concentrated on enhancing app features, specifically fixing permissions for editing tasks in PR#1466. Haohui also worked on developing functionality that assigned permissions to individual users, enabling manager accounts to access projects and edit project details while managing permissions assigned to individuals and ensuring rigorous code testing. Yubo, in addition to overseeing the team’s collaborative efforts, concentrated on unit tests for the LinkModButton component and potentially the UserLinkLayout. Resolving a pull request (PR) with a failed npm test, Yubo identified that the issue might stem from a permission rebuild, prompting a refactoring approach aligned with recommended practices for consistent code access permissions. Unfortunately, testing the pull was hindered by challenges in permission management. Yubo provided assistance to Shree in finalizing her assigned tasks, contributing to the overall progress of the team. Yongjian addressed merge conflicts within his pull request, PR #842, which aimed at implementing a dark mode across the entire application. However, post-resolving these conflicts, he encountered an issue where the toggle button and associated features for the dark mode were inadvertently removed. He compared the files changed on Github and worked on re-implementing the original features for this task in his local branch, aiming to reinstate the functionality as intended. Sávio undertook the assignment of creating the new “Overview Report” page. His responsibilities included designing mock-ups, and prototypes, and exploring Data Visualization techniques suitable for implementation on this page. Sávio developed two versions of visualization employing the Donut Graph: one featuring attached labels and another with separate labels listed alongside. The complete design of the page was not finalized. The collage below shows some of this work.

Aishwarya implemented modifications to the pull request (PR#605) for the building Tool schema in accordance with Tim’s specific requirements. Vishala began work on the Add Materials Page, creating two backend APIs to fetch material types for display on the frontend and to create a new material type. She implemented user-friendly validations using JOI on the frontend, allowing the material type to accept either a custom unit or a pre-existing unit in the database. Olga finalized the design and refactoring of the tool view component, initiating backend development for the single tool view page. She addressed responsive design issues in the project summary component and compiled a list of data for extraction from the backend. Harshida focused on the Filter Material list for the BM Dashboard, completing the task by adding a select input labeled Material. She also ensured that option fields in the select input were appropriately mapped to all materials used in the current Project filter selection and dynamically adjusted based on the user’s project selection. Besides, she integrated a filter function that executed project and material filters for a refined result. Tim rounded off the week by finalizing updates on the frontend and backend branches for Purchase Request: Material, incorporating new fields into the form, and enhancing its adaptive styling with CSS rules. He also resolved conflicts and linting errors, presenting detailed pull requests. Sahil focused on PR reviews and unit testing, examining updates through PRs #1536, 612, 1556, 1554, 1547, 1546, 1540, 1541, 1552, 1559, 1557, 1558, and 1560.
