For more discussion on the format of these calls, see the thread here.

Short reports, celebrations, shout-outs#

This is a place to make short announcements (without a need for discussion).

  • Sarah Shout out to everyone who is here for handling time zones!

Agenda Items#

  • JupyterLab-LaTeX UX improvements PR Result of 2 semesters of work by Junior Design Capstone class team from Georgia Tech done for client (Axle Informatics/NIH). Project included a user research section which is summarized in PR. New features highlights:

    • Preview button

    • Formatting buttons (bold, italic, underlined, subscript, superscript)

    • Autocomplete for common LaTeX tags (i.e. \subsection)

    • tikzplots templates

    • Table creation helper

    • Suggestion: UX to help with LaTeX install discovery, errors (even as documentation)

  • JupyterLab-Git usability improvements 4 features added to JupyterLab-Git as a result of the 12-week Spring 2022 MLH Fellowship Open-Source Program. The majority of the work was done by Dat Quach and Zeshan Fayyaz with help and feedback from Frédéric Collonval.

    • Search and Replace across files extension (release in the coming week)

    • GitHub repository

    • Demo

      • The extension is using a CLI tool called Ripgrep

      • This limits the usage of the extension to contents served from a file system.

    • Potential solutions for building index for other needs (like non OS filesystem) (thanks to Nick):
