Argos extension writing for Gnome3

I was using from time ago this extension for Gnome named Argos which allows to create useful data views using scripts written in whatever language of choice available, bash included. So far I had just a simple extension writing a UNICODE character, but with the suggestion of my colleague Javi Ramírez, I decided to use the motivational idea to write a simple script to calculate how much you’ve earned so far in the day and show that information at a glance on your menu bar....

i18n and 'bash8' in bash

Introduction In order to improve Citellus and Magui, we did implement some Unit testing to improve code quality. The tests written were made in python and with some changes it was also possible to validate the actual tests.

Jenkins for running CI tests

Why? While working on Citellus and Magui it soon became evident that Unit testing for validating the changes was a requirement. Initially, using a .travis.yml file contained in the repo and the free service provided by https://travis-ci.org we soon got https://github.com repo providing information about if the builds succeeded or not. When it was decided to move to https://gerrithub.io to work in a more similar way to what is being done in upstream, we improved on the code commenting (peer review), but we lost the ability to run the tests in an automated way until the change was merged into github....

Magui for analysis of issues across several hosts.

Background Citellus allows to check a sosreport against known problems identified on the provided tests. This approach is easy to implement and easy to test but has limitations when a problem can span across several hosts and only the problem reveals itself when a general analysis is performed. Magui tries to solve that by running the analysis functions inside citellus across a set of sosreports, unifying the data obtained per citellus plugin....
