Enhanced Ruler – GSoC 2022 Week 1

Hello everyone! Here are some updates on the current status of my GSoC Project. I have mainly taken this week to gain a better understanding of the Ruler code.

Accomplished this week:

  • Investigated the source code for the Ruler. Created a map of the functions and how they relate to each other.
  • Created a small project to better understand labelling. Separated the font of the label’s value from the units, allowing for more dynamic labelling.
  • Discussed the project with mentors and communicated goals and expectations.

To accomplish this upcoming week:

  • Implement a complete suite of options for a nonlinear ruler.
  • Continue talking to mentors and better understanding the code.
