GSoC final report
These awesome three months of summer spent developing for python-casacore under Google Summer of Code, have filled me with great zeal and zest. The adventurous journey of thousand lines of code comes to an end. This entire project was quite informative and filled me with lots of good experiences and knowledge. I thank OpenAstronomy organization for accepting my GSoC proposal and my mentor Tammo Jan Dijkema and the community for helping me throughout this project.
As per the requirement of GSoC, this article consists of a brief description of the work i have done, and the things that could not be done, what is left to do, what are future plans of the project, links to works that were merged and links to patches that were not.
Most of the tasks mentioned in the proposal were discussed and worked upon.
Links to the major patch submissions:
Removed Compiler warnings
wrote tests and improved code quality for utils
fixed formatting and code cleanup for casacore.tables
Added tests for casacore.tables (Some parts in the tests were commented as the tests were failing due to a bug in casacore)
Added tests for casacore.functionals
Corrected formatting and code cleanup for casacore.images
Added tests for images.py and coordinates.py
Improved code qualities for casacore.fitting
Added tests for casacore.fittings
Added tests and improved code quality for casacore.quanta
Improved incomplete docs
Added travis OSX support
porting python bindings from using boost::python to pybind11
Forked Repository: python-casacore
The momentum gained through this project is a great moral booster for me and I wish this momentum will drive my curiosity to keep learning more in future and the open source technologies will flourish with their full potential and thrive to its zenith.
