Arch Tea Time: 2020-07-02

Topics

  • Linter Love

  • FYI: Static Assets in Containerization

    • ArgoCD - static assets get built only once → deployed to S3

    • Where to have the convo on how to implement this?

    • ACTION DO: Will add his input on the ticket (WhiteNoise)…

      • Instead of versioning and collect-static, … (Dave will update the ticket)

    • Note: Cloudflare doesn’t connect to S3 with Https

    • Webpack builds the assets and generates a directory

    • If our Django assets were available with proper caching headers, then we wouldn’t need to overly build the assets.

  • Interesting ADRs in progress:

    • LTI Freedom: https://github.com/edx/xblock-lti-consumer/pull/85/files

      • LTI=Learning Tools Interoperability

      • Today: only supported via an xBlock

      • Proposal: move this integration capability to other places in our frontend experiences

      • Questions:

        • Who? Same as for xBlocks - Course Teams

        • Where? “Slots” in the UI where LTI can be integrated

        • What LTI Providers?

          • Big Blue Button

          • Discussion tools

          • Internal tools that edX develops

        • How LTI and MFE interact?

          • MFE: container for LTI plugins

          • MFE: wrapped into an LTI plugin

    • OEP → Handbook:

  • Prep for next week’s Special Guest ( )
