Moving forward to the new horizons of Open Source world. To get more familiarised with Open Source and the way it works. For the past week I’ve been working on couple of things.
- Introduction to Thimble
We are going to fix a bug in the Thimble project. In order to do that, my Professor provided us with a walkthrough blog post. Which I can certainly say, was extremely helpful.
2. Setting up Bramble and Thimble
So I picked a bug that I want to fix. What next?
The next step is setting up the environment. The installation instructions that I followed were provided by Thimble here. Instructions are clear and straightforward. However, I was still able to run into problems. I followed the instructions and everything was going great until I got to the Vagrant part. To be more specific vagrant up command. The problem that I got was that my port number was occupied, and I couldn’t run the Vagrant. I tried to fix it in different ways. Changing the port number, restarting my laptop, trying to figure out why the port number is occupied and with what. However, nothing of this worked. I was getting upset, I didn’t know what to do. Then situation got even worst. My only laptop got broken. So I gave to my friend who was fixing it, while I was trying to set up the environment on the laptop that I borrowed from my friend. And I got the exact same issue again. So I tried again and again. I end up reinstalling all of the components required, but it didn’t help. Did I end up setting up the environment? Yes. How? My friend fixed my laptop, and with a fresh just installed Ubuntu everything finally worked.
