ONE COMMUNITY WEEKLY UPDATE DETAILS

 

HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING PROGRESS

Highest Good housing, cob construction, earthbag construction, straw bale construction, earthship construction, subterranean construction, sustainable homes, eco-homesOne Community is developing sustainable and free-shared ecology through Highest Good housing that is artistic and beautiful, more affordable, more space efficient, lasts longer, DIY buildable, and constructed with healthy and sustainable materials:

This week, the core team reviewed the final version of the Murphy Bed Assembly instruction document, checking, confirming, and resolving eight comments. They also continued their work on the Highest Good Network PRs testing, confirming the fixed PRs. They addressed issues such as user visibility on the dashboard, mouseover text corrections, weekly summaries editing errors, discrepancies in color display and tested for issues related to user permissions and dashboard functionality. However, there were unresolved issues with PRs related to the absence of a badge icon on the Weekly Summaries Reports page, problems with the Lost Time function, and the appearance of the Tasks Contributed section in the People Report. See the Highest Good Society and Highest Good Network pages for more on how this relates to sustainable and free-shared ecology. The collage below shows some of their work.

Joseph Osayande (Mechanical Engineer) began helping to finish the Vermiculture Toilet designs. He researched three methods for removing an inserted block from a container used to segregate process waste, comparing ratchet, pulley, and winch systems. After evaluating the options, it was determined that the winch system offers superior advantages due to its precise control over the extraction process, ensuring safe and efficient removal of the fitted item from the confined space. A winch prototype was then designed using SolidWorks to address the problem, intended to handle appropriate loads for extraction. Additionally, research was done on the optimal materials for housing the winch. The vermiculture toilets and other sustainable human waste processing technologies form the basis of One Community’s open source sustainable and free-shared ecology model. See below for some of the pictures related to this work.

Loza Ayehutsega (Civil Engineer/Assistant Civil Engineer) completed another week working on the Earth Dam risk assessment and dam break hazard assessment. She particularly worked on tolerable dam risk assessment and is also working on Emergency Action Plans. However, it is also recommended to add additional content about risk assessment. A tolerable dam risk assessment aims to evaluate and manage these risks within acceptable limits determined through a combination of engineering judgment, regulatory standards, historical data, and societal expectations. Ensuring dam safety measures and preparedness are a foundation of One Community’s open source earthworks as part of the sustainable and free-shared ecology model. See the pictures below for examples related to this work.

Rizwan Syed (Mechanical Engineer) also continued helping to finish the Vermiculture Toilet designs. He focused on iterating the design concept for the processing and removable chambers of One Community’s vermiculture eco-toilets. He explored options to remove the small lip portion beneath the removable slot to achieve a continuous interface between the two stacked chambers that collect waste material. Additionally, Rizwan adjusted the size of the two components and modified their construction material from wood to steel to enhance durability. To ensure the design’s feasibility, he performed hand calculations for stress and loading to determine the maximum load that the vermiculture chamber could support over a six-month period. The vermiculture toilets and other sustainable human waste processing technologies form the basis of One Community’s open source sustainable and free-shared ecology model. Here are a few photos showing examples of his work.

ALPHA SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT TEAM

This week, the Alpha Team’s summary, covering their work on the Highest Good Network software was managed by Sucheta Mukherjee (Software Developer) and includes Anand Seshadri (Software Engineer), Gayathridevi Chithambaram (Full Stack Developer), Jordy Corporan (Software Engineer), and Lin Khant Htel (Frontend Software Developer). The Highest Good Network software is how we’ll manage and objectively measure our processes for sustainable and free-shared ecology across our social architecture, construction, production, and maintenance processes. This week, Sucheta focused on finalizing error handling within the project page filtering mechanism, specifically targeting filtering by user’s first and last name, and initiated a pull request (PR2244) to align with the development branch. Additionally, work was done on refining the Add_Task_modal formatting by transitioning away from inline styles to CSS classes for div and spans. Anand worked on the Dark Mode Modals change in the Reports page, applying the dark theme to various components including modal buttons, hover states, and tooltip modals, and implemented dark modes for specific buttons. Anand also addressed error color issues and extended dark themes across all modals on the Reports page, with plans to create a Pull Request for the completed work. Lin reviewed 10 pull requests and approved 7 on the HGN GitHub repository, while also writing unit tests for the dashboardController and planning to refine testing code following discussions with Diego. Additionally, Lin learned more about unit testing and integration testing. Jordy enhanced his proficiency in unit testing, particularly focusing on Jest while developing tests for the OwnerMessageController, and provided feedback on PRs #941 and #2241+PR#919, while finalizing unit tests for the ownerMessageController to ensure clean and well-structured code. Gayathridevi’s primary focus was on addressing design issues with the Projects/People/Teams page on narrow screens. She worked to enhance user experience by ensuring that search results are immediately visible without requiring users to scroll down. The solution involves making it more apparent to users when search results are generated. The approach includes accessing the Reports section, navigating to Projects/People/Teams, narrowing the screen, and typing any letter in the search bar. Importantly, these adjustments do not alter the functionality on larger screens. See the Highest Good Society and Highest Good Network pages for more on how this relates to sustainable and free-shared ecology. View some of the team’s work in the collage below.
