@choldgraf nice thanks. @SamLau95 right, but writing it myself rather defeats the pedagogy, since we are then back to dealing with cognitive load of multiple data structures.
Chris Holdgraf
@choldgraf
That makes sense to me - I think the trick with things like apply functions is that it can become confusing if you, e.g., have different datatypes in your columns. I could see it becoming a hassle if it's taught as a primary method of a Table object, though also quite useful too (guess that's the challenge of pandas in general)
Sam Lau
@SamLau95
@choldgraf thanks! i’ll take a look later today
Chris Holdgraf
@choldgraf
hey @SamLau95, I was speaking with Edwin, who is teaching the literature connector course. He said that he still doesn't have a data8 account...is that something you can set up?
he also mentioned that he doesn't have access to bCourses etc. Maybe this is because his Berkeley account was recently created, but who's a good person to talk to in order to make sure this happens?
Sam Lau
@SamLau95
@choldgraf sorry i didn’t see this until now! what’s his calnet ID? alternatively i added you to data8.berkeley.edu as an admin so you can add him yourself at https://data8.berkeley.edu/hub/admin
oh just kidding, found it (trloand) and added him
Chris Holdgraf
@choldgraf
Ah sorry, yeah I think his Cal name is teddy actually
Sam Lau
@SamLau95
ah, i’ll try that
Chris Holdgraf
@choldgraf
Cool thanks, I'll just add on my own in the future
Sam Lau
@SamLau95
cool, added

@clcarson
Could someone (@SamLau95, @choldgraf) add me to the new data8.org so I don't get a 500 internal server error?
Chris Holdgraf
@choldgraf
Hmmm, I'm already seeing your name in there
Cathryn Carson
@clcarson
It now looks like I can log in, but I still get a message 500 : Internal Server Error
Failed to start your server. Please contact admin. What I'm trying to do is just look at the link Maddie sent for the Smart Cities connector
Chris Holdgraf
@choldgraf
Hmmm, that sounds like a permissions issue
Could you just visit that repo on github instead?
Chris Holdgraf
@choldgraf
e.g., here's the smart cities connector link on github https://github.com/data-8/smart-cities-connector
though looks like it's not updated, so I don't think that's what she's working on
Chris Holdgraf
@choldgraf
actually, FWIW I just tried to start my server as well and got the same error. @SamLau95 any idea what's going on?
I went into the admin page and clicked on "stop server" and it returned an error saying that the server wasn't actually running. So it seems like it thinks that some servers are running when they're not
Cathryn Carson
@clcarson
I had that same experience as @choldgraf with trying to start and stop servers. I got to the admin page and decided I shouldn't be mucking around in there because it looked like I could break stuff.
In theory I could visit the repo on github, but I don't understand github well enough to know what that means to do. (I figure we'll have a lot of instructors who are in the same boat. If they find our support system hard to use, they'll opt out.)
Chris Holdgraf
@choldgraf
yeah I agree - it sounds like the issue with data8 is a bug. And I'm not positive how exactly the github repos / data8 sync with one another.
Carl Boettiger
@cboettig
@SamLau95 Just a heads up that it looks like my home directory on data8.org has been wiped (presumably someone was clearing out the Fall student directories and instructor directories look just like students...). I had everything backed up so no problem, but we probably need a better process in place so that connector instructors don't have their directories removed when that happens
Sam Lau
@SamLau95
@choldgraf @clcarson are you still running into issues? ryan pushed in some fixes last night
@cboettig how about on https://ds8.berkeley.edu/hub/home ? data8 is just a new set of servers and we haven't done any copying over of files
Carl Boettiger
@cboettig
@SamLau95 Ah, thanks, stuff is at the new link
@SamLau95 I'm still trying to figure out how the new import API will impact my workflow
It looks like the instructions you have on https://github.com/data-8/connector-instructors assume I have 1 branch and that branch is gh-pages
Sam Lau
@SamLau95
it assumes you have a gh-pages branch but you can have other branches too
Carl Boettiger
@cboettig
In reality I have a master branch where I keep private things like answer keys and a gh-pages branch I want to use to distribute public Notebooks
Sam Lau
@SamLau95
unfortunately i haven't set it up so that private repos can be cloned
Carl Boettiger
@cboettig
So how do I construct the import link to tell it to import from the gh-pages branch?
Sam Lau
@SamLau95
it's hardcoded to pull from gh-pages
so no other branch will get pulled in
Carl Boettiger
@cboettig
okay, that's good, but like you say authentication will be a problem
Sam Lau
@SamLau95
right. for the time being i can make you a private repo where you can put your secret files
and you can keep a public one where you release assignments
Carl Boettiger
@cboettig
since it's gh-pages the notebook is already accessbile on a public data-8 url, which would have worked in the old system, but I guess not in the new system
well currently my ecology-connector repo is private and has my secret files (on the master branch)
Sam Lau
@SamLau95
yeah; the old system still works though, so you can fall back to that
Carl Boettiger
@cboettig
ah, that's good to know!
Sam Lau
@SamLau95
and okay, i can make a public repo for you if you'd like
Carl Boettiger
@cboettig
I'd prefer to have two branches then a public repo, hmm, will think about it
Sam Lau
@SamLau95
i think the new system is more beginner-friendly and robust (eg. updates to files work) and eventually we'd like to only use that (hence why the old system isn't mentioned)
and yeah, what we can do is
we'll let data8.berkeley.edu see our private repos
but only allow pulling from the gh-pages branch
Carl Boettiger
@cboettig
Right, I agree, though it still has some learning curve. I think the default will be that instructors need private as well as public content. Anyway, off to teach now (but no notebooks today)!
nice, sounds like a good solution
