Week Summary

Finished the first demo of all visualizations, and made a first round of simple performance improvements. Began learning to use docker and gaining familiarity with the CDLI framework in order to start moving the project over.

Daily Work Update

# Day Date A short description of the work done
1 Monday 2020/06/01 Implement first attempt at similarity measurement and associated bar charts.
2 Tuesday 2020/06/02 Complete implementation of similarity charts: add axis labels, tooltips, and fix crashes when words contain a curly-brace character. Redeploy on Heroku and merge changes from dev branch to master branch: demo is now live, but Heroku endpoint is unstable due to wordnet tmp files being deleted by the server.
3 Wednesday 2020/06/03 Debug slow responsiveness in visualizations. Limit size of force-directed graphs to increase speed. Look for ways to lazy load this content to reduce performance impact.
4 Thursday 2020/06/04 Setup CDLI framework dev environment. Learn how to use docker and docker-compose; setup simple container for this project and get a simple HTML interface working on the framework.
5 Friday 2020/06/05 Separate api and interface components into different services.
6 Saturday 2020/06/06
7 Sunday 2020/06/07
