Meeting notes:
  1. Students need to start through Gitter daily to update everyone in the BioJS community on the progress apart from the weekly blog posts.
  2. The blog post for week 3 has to be posted. Link to blog:
  3. The master doc turned out to be really useful! Django admin panel and its credentials have been added to it which contain the details of the API. View the master doc.
  4. Megh and Sarthak would be reviewing each other's work through Pull Request reviews. Also, both should have a high level idea about each other's projects. Hence, the idea and basics of both the projects would be explained through slides or another form of presentation in near future.
  5. Two issues were discussed which would be taken up after the completion of the basic product.
    Issue 1: There exists some duplicates of the components in the registry due to forks.
    Issue 2: To get all the details of a component, GitHub API has to be called 3 times. GitHub allows upto 5000 requests in an hour. Doing the math for the maximum number of components considering a cron job every 15 minutes:
    (4 times requests due to cron job)(3 requests per component)(no. of components) = 5000 yields that a maximum number of 416 components will be supported as per the current architecture.
Details in the weekly blog post coming up soon!
