    Another productive evening of coding, almost ready to share! 

    We had another excellent and productive evening of coding, once again meeting at Twitter’s HQ in San Francisco (one of the benefits of having two Twitter engineers on our team!)  Our goal was to to try to get the project launched but there remain a few outstanding issues to finish resolving.  Stay tuned!  (Want to keep up on the progress?  Follow our commits on Github).

    CS Hackathon at Twitter HQ “Can we translate Science and Health into Chinese?” – February 4, 2014 

    CS Hackathon at Twitter

    We were blessed to be able to meet at Twitter HQ (in their main community meeting area) for our hackathon on Feb 4.  The space was quite neat, the food was delicious and we made some excellent progress on the Ruby on Rails app we’re building to help translate Science and Health into Chinese.  The app isn’t ready for release yet, but if you want to see what we’ve been up to on it, you can git pull it from here: https://github.com/CSKit/cskit-translator

    Pleasant Viewer WordPress plugin is now live – Easily publish and share Wednesday readings on your site 

    Pleasant Viewer 1.0

    Want to share Wednesday Readings or your other citation research on specific topics? If you have a WordPress site you can now install the Pleasant Viewer plugin. It will let you and others easily publish and share citations online. It is Open Source (GPL licensed) and free to use and distribute.

    It is the result of the “Hack Your Church” hackathon at the U.C. Berkeley CSO this past weekend. Julian, Cameron, James and Gabriel all worked on the ideas. It uses Cameron’s cskit-rb library to retrieve citations. It’s still a little rough around the edges but works nonetheless. Check it out!

    First CS Hackathon a success! (Pictures) 

    The first hackathon (hopefully of many to come) was held at the Berkeley CSO (thanks for letting us use the building!)  We ended up working on a new project called Pleasant Viewer, an Open Source WordPress plugin built on top of Cameron’s cskit framework.

    Open Source Christian Science – cskit-rb is pretty sweet! 

    Open Source Christian Science

    {“number”:”1″,”lines”:[{“text”:”THE prayer that reforms the sinner and heals the”,”flyout_text”:null,”paragraph_start”:true},{“text”:”sick is an absolute faith that all things are”,”flyout_text”:null,”paragraph_start”:false},{“text”:”possible to God,- a spiritual understanding of Him,”,”flyout_text”:null,”paragraph_start”:false},{“text”:”an unselfed love. Regardless of what another may say”,”flyout_text”:null,”paragraph_start”:false},{“text”:”or think on this subject, I speak from experience.”,”flyout_text”:null,”paragraph_start”:false},

    We’re really excited about Cameron’s work on writing an open source set of tools that will allow for studying, sharing and building new interfaces to the world of Christian Science text.

    Check it out on his cskit-rb Github page. If you’re adventurous and nerdy, you might even see what you can contribute to the project. He’ll be presenting his work so far at the upcoming CS Hackathon at the UC Berkeley CSO, which we’re also going to be participating in. See you there?
