OSMonth: Day 1

It begins! I’m bored of waiting for the webcam (which amazon thinks will be here tomorrow or the next day) and I want to get on with coding. Today is sponsored by Tom Carden and Nick Black. I’ve been doing a lot of tile stuff lately so I’m going to hack on the rails port of OSM which really needs to get finished. I’m not sure to what extent I’ll be on IRC as it seems to detract a lot from actual work.

Things done today:

  • With help from gagravarr fixed a datum error in the Nottingham data
  • Got the way API working in the rails port (bug 283)
  • Got the map API working in the rails port (bug 288)
  • Half of getting GPX upload and import working (bug 287)

A good start, with 9 commits and 2 bugs squished (you can subscribe to the RSS feed for subversion over here).

    Good luck with the month. I look forward to the day which I’m one of the ‘sponsors’ for, though I’m not sure why.

    I don’t know much about how the Open Street Map backend works, but I am currently learning about Ruby on Rails, so I’d be interested to know more about the work you’re doing in that area.

    In fact, I think it would be good generally if you could spend at least a small part of the month doing things like improving documentation and the website front end…
