code for boston
On December 17, MuckRock, Code for Boston, and Hacks/Hackers are putting together a demo night to highlight a number of open source projects, including MuckRock’s newest government transparency tool, GovLens. Registration is free!
Last week the MuckRock team took a short week to celebrate Thanksgiving, so there are no new features. This week, we’ll be back at it, including at our weekly volunteer night Tuesday evening.
A bug in some of the code used to make selected Assignment submissions public broke some editing functions; that’s now fixed. More importantly, you can join us for an evening of food, beverages, and open data demos on Dec. 17 at Code for Boston Demo Night, where we’ll be unveiling our new project.
Last week was quiet, with most of the focus on behind-the-scenes DocumentCloud work, but we did push two changes: disabling some faulty automated portal integrations and fixing some admin functionality that helps us more quickly resolve a variety of issues.
Last week, we fixed up some local dev environment quirks and rewrote the instructions so it’s easier to play around with MuckRock’s code on your local device. We also fixed up some minors bugs, such as non-functioning profile page buttons.
