Week Thirty-One

This week I learned as much as I could about Django. However, after talking it over with the other people on this team, we decided it would be best to code the GUI in Java. I have never used Java before, but I am going to see how quickly I can learn it. I have already started installing everything I need.

I should have more time to work next week. I will help code the GUI while I learn Java.

Week Thirty

This week, we worked on creating an abstract for Stetson’s showcase. We had to combine different parts of the project so we could get everything submitted.

Next week I am going to continue working on the GUI and building a better-looking graph. I think I am going to look at Django next week, and see if it would work for us. If it doesn’t seem practical, I will try Java.

Week Twenty-Nine

This week I continued to work on making a GUI in Python. I have made a GUI before, but never in Python. I am using Tkinter which is moderately simple to use; however, not so simple to learn. I should be able to pick it up rather quickly. Now it is just a matter of taking what I’ve learned about Tkinter and making it into a usable GUI.

Next week I will continue to learn about Tkinter and hopefully make a lot of progress on the GUI.

Week Twenty-Eight

This week I worked on improving the graph and learning how to make a GUI using Python. I think I am going to use Tkinter, but I have no experience using it. At the beginning of this research project, we already had a GUI in mind. Here is the GUI we originally proposed:

You can see we have a place for the user to input a document, and our program will check that document for connections with other documents.

Next week I will continue to learn about ways to make a GUI in Python.
