2021 Week 25
At work, we've finally wrapped up the project we've been working on in these past few weeks. There are still some bugs to be fixed, but they're relatively minor.
Really glad I made it.
I initially planned to do some work on giscus this weekend, but I really didn't have the energy to do it.
I felt like I needed to take some time off programming. So I did. Kind of.
I played Castlevania: Symphony of the Night on my phone, from start to finish. I really enjoyed it.
After that, I spent the Saturday and Sunday binging Lupin with my sister. It was good. I feel like they made things a bit too convenient for the protagonist, though.
I still ended up doing some programming. A friend of mine asked me to write a scraper to download some files from my university's scholarships website. I had promised to do it on the weekend.
It didn't require a lot of thinking, so I didn't mind doing it. I initially wanted to try out Spatula, but it seemed overkill for the job. Besides, I didn't want to spend more time than needed, which would be the case if I were to learn a new library.
I ended up going with my usual setup -- requests + beautifulsoup4 in a Jupyter notebook. Works like a charm. I also didn't need to upload the results as I could just run the notebook on Google Colab and save the files directly to Google Drive. Sent the link to my friend, done.
