It's now three weeks into the coding phase. So far the coding itself has been smooth, but I could commit less time to the project than I had expected. The semester at my university ends in June and last week I had no time for my project at all. I only had a quick chat with my mentor.
The week before I did a a proof of concept implementation (see the github repository at <https://github.com/jakr/developer_dashboard/>). It's in a very rough state but it shows what I aim for on the logging side.
This week I'll work on integrating the urlvariabletools. This will require some logic that allows adding tabs, buttons, and other UI elements to my dashboard.
