Discussion:
[GSoC 2014] Cordova/Android App for GNU Mailman Admin Interface
(too old to reply)

Hello all

Congrats to Mailman on being selected as a mentor organization under PSF.

I am Bhargav Golla, a graduate student in Computer Science at Clemson
University, US. I am an avid mobile and web app developer. I worked on
Phonegap apps during GSoC 2012 and GSoC 2013 with Apache Software
Foundation and have developed many Windows Phone apps. The native android
app I developed for Exotel (a startup in cloud telephony in India) is still
being actively used by Exotel's clientele of over 1000 firms. My Github
account[1] will provide much more details about my developer expertise. I
am particularly interested in Cordova/Android app for Admin interface idea.

I have a few questions regarding this idea.
1. I intend to develop it on Cordova since it will help in porting the app
easily to multiple platforms. Were there any ideas in this directions
regarding going native or hybrid?
2. Can I assume that all mailing lists built by Mailman support the REST
interface? Also, I have tried to see if I can get JSON responses and I am
unable to by adding a HTTP Accept Header to take "application/json". Am I
doing anything wrong or is JSON not implemented?
3. As a starter, could I ignore internationalization for GSoC, but
implement interface in such a way as to be able to internationalize it
easily?

I would be very much obliged if I am provided with answers to these
questions and whatever questions that may arise in future as they will help
me in writing a good proposal and in turn get chosen to work with Mailman.

Personally, I'd prefer if we went hybrid and had an html5 webapp that
could be used straight over the web for mobile users who don't want to
install an app, with Cordova used to build the individual platform
apps. I may not be the mentor on this one, though, so I'm happy to
defer to whoever the final mentor is on this front.

Incidentally, I've been using Intel's XDK for building Cordova apps
lately and highly recommend it for quick testing on various platforms
and screen sizes. I've found it a very useful tool, and not just
because I work for Intel now!

We don't expect you to actually translate anything, don't worry. :) But
you should definitely build as much as possible so that
internationalization will be easy: make sure there's a quick way to get
a list of strings that need translation, at least. Some of the strings
may be already translated in other components of Mailman, so you may be
able to get some translations to use to test if you have time at the end
of the summer for internationalization.

Thanks Barry and Terri for your feedback.
I was trying to install Postorius locally and analyze what all would be
required in a mobile app for Admin. Doing the same, I have hit a roadblock.
I am using the wiki provided here[1]. I tried to install mailman using "set
up sources" part of the wiki. Though python setup.py install executes
without any errors, I am unable to see the folder bin/ in the same
directory. So, even though I proceed with further setup, I am getting a
"Mailman REST API not available. Please start mailman core" on my
localhost:8000 webpage. Could anyone help me here?

Hi Bhargav,

Just do *mailman start*, without the bin.

I have edited the wiki.

Thanks for that change Rajeev. I was able to get the Web UI up and running.
I was trying to find out the default Username and password for this but was
unable to. When I was exploring docs in mailman.client and some config
files in mailman, I found that the default username and password for admin
is restadmin and restpass. Tried that and was out of luck there too. Could
you help me with the default username and password details?

Also, there is a using.txt doc in mailman.client which says we can make the
REST requests by connecting to http://localhost:9001/3.0 using username and
password. Should the URL be http://localhost:9000/3.0 for this example or
would it be any different?

Hi Abhilash

If you mean the last step of installation where we do cd
postorius_standalone;python manage.py syncdb, I wasn't asked for any
username/password. I checked the settings.py and it doesn't have any
specific default username/password.

And the http://localhost:8001/3.0 worked for me.

While setting up Postorius(the web UI) when you do 'python manage.py
syncdb' for the first time, it asks you to create admin. You can log in
using those credentials. 'restadmin' and 'restpass' are the credentials
for the mailman rest server.

Also, there is a using.txt doc in mailman.client which says we can make

AFAIK it is 'http://localhost:8001/3.0'. (Try it once. If I am wrong

Hi Bhargav,

You will be asked whether to *add a superuser* during *syncdb*. If you
answered no to that, do *python manage.py createsuperuser * and use that
username and password to login.

Hi Abhilash
If you mean the last step of installation where we do cd
postorius_standalone;python manage.py syncdb, I wasn't asked for any
username/password. I checked the settings.py and it doesn't have any
specific default username/password.
And the http://localhost:8001/3.0 worked for me.

Hi Bhargav,

Thanks for that change Rajeev. I was able to get the Web UI up and

I was trying to find out the default Username and password for this but
was

unable to. When I was exploring docs in mailman.client and some config
files in mailman, I found that the default username and password for
admin

is restadmin and restpass. Tried that and was out of luck there too.
Could
Post by Bhargav Golla
you help me with the default username and password details?
While setting up Postorius(the web UI) when you do 'python manage.py
syncdb' for the first time, it asks you to create admin. You can log in
using those credentials. 'restadmin' and 'restpass' are the credentials
for the mailman rest server.

Hi Rajeev

I wasn't asked if I wanted to create a super user when I executed python
manage.py syncdb. This was the output I got with syncdb:
Creating tables...
Installing Custome SQL...
Installing indexes...
Installed 0 object(s) from 0 fixture(s)

I tried python manage.py createsuperuser and was able to login with details
I provided there.

Thanks for your help.

Hi,

You will be asked for the create user prompt only the first time you run
syncdb.That's why you don't see it now.

Once the DB is created, only new tables, specified via django models, get
added to DB during the syncdb.

Thanks. I would have probably missed it out the first time. I will go
through the web UI and also the documentation of REST API to understand
what all functions need to be implemented in the admin interface for a user.

Post by Rajeev S
Hi,
You will be asked for the create user prompt only the first time you run
syncdb.That's why you don't see it now.
Once the DB is created, only new tables, specified via django models, get
added to DB during the syncdb.

Hi Bhargav,
You will be asked whether to *add a superuser* during *syncdb*. If you
answered no to that, do *python manage.py createsuperuser * and use

Hi Abhilash
If you mean the last step of installation where we do cd
postorius_standalone;python manage.py syncdb, I wasn't asked for any
username/password. I checked the settings.py and it doesn't have any
specific default username/password.
And the http://localhost:8001/3.0 worked for me.

Hello

I have gone through the Admin interface and all functions that can be
achieved with the REST API. I intend to have a login screen where a user
can enter URL for the REST API endpoint, REST Username and password. We
will use this to subsequent authenticate all requests made to fetch
subscribers list, domains list, etc.

I was wondering if I could get some feedback on this. I will start writing
my proposal based on this starting point and list out what all I would
features I would be implementing during the period of GSoC.

Regards

Hello
I have gone through the Admin interface and all functions that can be
achieved with the REST API. I intend to have a login screen where a user
can enter URL for the REST API endpoint, REST Username and password. We
will use this to subsequent authenticate all requests made to fetch
subscribers list, domains list, etc.
I was wondering if I could get some feedback on this. I will start writing
my proposal based on this starting point and list out what all I would
features I would be implementing during the period of GSoC.
Regards
Post by Bhargav Golla
Thanks. I would have probably missed it out the first time. I will go
through the web UI and also the documentation of REST API to understand
what all functions need to be implemented in the admin interface for a user.

Hi,
You will be asked for the create user prompt only the first time you run
syncdb.That's why you don't see it now.
Once the DB is created, only new tables, specified via django models,
get added to DB during the syncdb.

Hi Rajeev
I wasn't asked if I wanted to create a super user when I executed
Creating tables...
Installing Custome SQL...

I tried python manage.py createsuperuser and was able to login with

Thanks for your help.

Hi Bhargav,
You will be asked whether to *add a superuser* during *syncdb*. If
you answered no to that, do *python manage.py createsuperuser * and
use that username and password to login.

Hi Abhilash
If you mean the last step of installation where we do cd
postorius_standalone;python manage.py syncdb, I wasn't asked for any
username/password. I checked the settings.py and it doesn't have any
specific default username/password.
And the http://localhost:8001/3.0 worked for me.
Post by Rajeev S
Hi Bhargav,
Post by Bhargav Golla
Thanks for that change Rajeev. I was able to get the Web UI up and
running.
Post by Bhargav Golla
I was trying to find out the default Username and password for
this but
Post by Rajeev S
was
Post by Bhargav Golla
unable to. When I was exploring docs in mailman.client and some
config
Post by Rajeev S
Post by Bhargav Golla
files in mailman, I found that the default username and password
for
Post by Rajeev S
admin
Post by Bhargav Golla
is restadmin and restpass. Tried that and was out of luck there
too.
Post by Rajeev S
Could
Post by Bhargav Golla
you help me with the default username and password details?
While setting up Postorius(the web UI) when you do 'python manage.py
syncdb' for the first time, it asks you to create admin. You can
log in
Post by Rajeev S
using those credentials. 'restadmin' and 'restpass' are the
credentials
Post by Rajeev S
for the mailman rest server.
Post by Bhargav Golla
Also, there is a using.txt doc in mailman.client which says we
can make

the

REST requests by connecting to http://localhost:9001/3.0 using
username

example
Post by Rajeev S
or

would it be any different?
AFAIK it is 'http://localhost:8001/3.0'. (Try it once. If I am
wrong

I hope my mail hasn't missed your attention. I would be very much
obliged if someone could answer this question so that I can go
ahead and write proposal.
First, it's impolite to send mail to specific people just because
they're answered you before, unless they are specifically interested
in mentoring your project or have requested personal mail. I don't
think either is true (according to the wiki, there are no prospective
mentors for this project -- I'm sure there are some, but they're not
identified). Everybody reads this list, and by addressing them
specifically you may be sending them duplicates. Note: no harm done
this time, but you will be a much more valuable developer if you
become sensitive to these "marginal" "people skills".

Second, you yourself have not responded to a somewhat detailed comment
from Terri about using HTML5. I for one have been waiting for that.
See also the "Postorius Responsive UI" project.

Third, "there's not much here to comment on" is all I really have to
say. From the Subject I can see that you're interested in a handheld
interface. From the text you quote, I see you have a *very* basic
grasp of the requirements of web protocols for this application. You
probably know a heck of a lot more -- but that's all I can confirm
from your posts.

The way you ask is problematic. On the one hand, a GSoC proposal is
not a homework for school. There are no "right" answers, only good
ones and better ones. And you don't have to give a superior answer
immediately to qualify, only show promise of heading in the right
direction. (Of course, there are more students than slots, so you
also have to show more promise than others. But you have another week
or so to improve, and the delta can be in your favor.) On the other,
it's not *one* question. Rather, it has a strong whiff of "please
write half my proposal (the hard half) for me".

So just write your proposal so there's something to actually comment
on.

All that said, "login screens" are way clunky for modern handheld
apps. Users expect a smooth convenient experience. Second, that
experience does not include entering passwords on a frequent basis.
You should look into including TLS authentication. These need not be
present in the initial design, and maybe they won't even be in your
delivered product. But you should think in terms of a design that
allows easy upgrades to the UI.

Hi Stephen

Thanks for your feedback. I sincerely apologize for CC'ing people in the
mail who weren't mentors. But, during my experience with work at ASF, I was
asked to mention the project head in all mails when there is no mentor
assigned on an idea. That is solely the reason why I included Terri and
Barry (who are on the list of mentors and also responded to my doubts). I
guess the culture varies from organization to organization and I should
have been wary of this or should have followed usual email etiquette. It
was wrong on my part and I am sure this was a learning experience and I
would ensure that this wouldn't happen another time.

Regarding your second comment, I indeed took Terri's suggestion about Intel
XDK and am evaluating it while I am writing the proposal. And I have missed
out Postorius responsive UI project idea. Thanks for pointing it out.

And regarding login screens, I meant them to be like the settings page of
apps where we provide our username and password and it will be saved until
a user wants to revoke it. That way, the user won't be asked for username
and password every time he wants to use the app.

But, taking your suggestions, I think I shouldn't hold back on my proposal
but should send it in and take feedback on it on the whole without asking
individual questions. I will turn it in once I complete it and am sure
there would be much more feedback I can expect from the likes of you.

Thanks

I hope my mail hasn't missed your attention. I would be very much
obliged if someone could answer this question so that I can go
ahead and write proposal.
First, it's impolite to send mail to specific people just because
they're answered you before, unless they are specifically interested
in mentoring your project or have requested personal mail. I don't
think either is true (according to the wiki, there are no prospective
mentors for this project -- I'm sure there are some, but they're not
identified). Everybody reads this list, and by addressing them
specifically you may be sending them duplicates. Note: no harm done
this time, but you will be a much more valuable developer if you
become sensitive to these "marginal" "people skills".
Second, you yourself have not responded to a somewhat detailed comment
from Terri about using HTML5. I for one have been waiting for that.
See also the "Postorius Responsive UI" project.
Third, "there's not much here to comment on" is all I really have to
say. From the Subject I can see that you're interested in a handheld
interface. From the text you quote, I see you have a *very* basic
grasp of the requirements of web protocols for this application. You
probably know a heck of a lot more -- but that's all I can confirm
from your posts.
The way you ask is problematic. On the one hand, a GSoC proposal is
not a homework for school. There are no "right" answers, only good
ones and better ones. And you don't have to give a superior answer
immediately to qualify, only show promise of heading in the right
direction. (Of course, there are more students than slots, so you
also have to show more promise than others. But you have another week
or so to improve, and the delta can be in your favor.) On the other,
it's not *one* question. Rather, it has a strong whiff of "please
write half my proposal (the hard half) for me".
So just write your proposal so there's something to actually comment
on.
All that said, "login screens" are way clunky for modern handheld
apps. Users expect a smooth convenient experience. Second, that
experience does not include entering passwords on a frequent basis.
You should look into including TLS authentication. These need not be
present in the initial design, and maybe they won't even be in your
delivered product. But you should think in terms of a design that
allows easy upgrades to the UI.

Hello
I have gone through the Admin interface and all functions that can be
achieved with the REST API. I intend to have a login screen where a
user
Post by Bhargav Golla

can enter URL for the REST API endpoint, REST Username and password.
We
Post by Bhargav Golla

subscribers list, domains list, etc.
I was wondering if I could get some feedback on this. I will start
writing

guess the culture varies from organization to organization
Thank you for pointing this out. Indeed it does. ASF (and the PSF
for that matter) have a lot more applicants, and at least the PSF is
using a generic channel -- core-mentorship -- for GSoC and OPW
interns. In those cases it makes a lot of sense to clearly indicate
what the post is for, and who.

In Mailman it happens to be the case that this list, although it is
the generic developers list, is relatively low traffic, except at GSoC
time. So we know what you're going to talk about. :-)
Post by Bhargav Golla
and I should have been wary of this or should have followed usual
email etiquette. It was wrong on my part
I certainly wouldn't say "wrong", as you apparently are already well-
aware of the etiquette issues. You did your best. We can't ask for
more than that given varying culture and needs. (Heck, I myself
didn't clean up the headers....)

Steve

Regarding your second comment, I indeed took Terri's suggestion
about Intel XDK and am evaluating it while I am writing the
proposal. And I have missed out Postorius responsive UI project
idea. Thanks for pointing it out.
The two project ideas ("Cordova app" vs. "Postorius responsive") are
similar to some extend, but with significant differences. Let me
highlight some of them:

Both projects will make you write a good amount HTML/CSS/JS code, as
Cordova also uses these technologies for the user interface. Ideally
(if both projects are implemented - which isn't very likely) the UI
should not be much different - no matter if you open Postorius on a
phone's browser or use the native Cordova app.

1. Postorius responsive
The Postorius responsive project builds on an existing (Django)
back-end that is ready to be used. You might need to implement *some*
backend features, but (in contrast to the Cordova project) especially
the authentication/authorization part is something you will not have
to worry about because the framework already takes care of this. You
can concentrate on the interesting UI parts and make everything work
nicely on a variety of different devices. Oh, but please don't
underestimate the amount of (really very interesting) work you can put
into making a site really usable with either keyboard, mouse and fingers.

2. Cordova app
The Cordova project is different in that it doesn't build on an
existing underlying back-end, which means you will have to take care
of the communication with the core, as well as of authorization.
Mailman's REST API is mainly built for local use, giving you
wide-ranging permissions by default (meaning: if your credentials are
ok, you can do everything). It's definitely not advisable to expose it
directly to a phone app and then let this app manage the permissions
(because that way all users could make themselves admins by
manipulating the app's source code). So what's needed is a layer in
between (and controlled by the site, not the app). This could be
implemented as part of Postorius, but it could theoretically also be
something else on top of the core's REST API. Which one would first
have to be discussed (there are good arguments to be made for both
scenarios). So, in the end, the Cordova project will not be a pure app
project.

Hope that helps.

Cheers
Florian

files in mailman, I found that the default username and password for admin
is restadmin and restpass. Tried that and was out of luck there too. Could
you help me with the default username and password details?
That's only the default username and password for the privileged admin REST
API in the core. The web ui uses that to speak to the core, but if you're
connecting to the web ui, that username and password won't be exposed.

2. Can I assume that all mailing lists built by Mailman support the REST
interface? Also, I have tried to see if I can get JSON responses and I am
unable to by adding a HTTP Accept Header to take "application/json". Am I
doing anything wrong or is JSON not implemented?
I'm not sure this question makes sense. ;) Mailman 3 does expose a REST API,
but in the core, it's a protected (e.g. localhost only by default) admin
interface. It's not per-mailing list, although there are mailing list
specific resources. JSON is the only response format currently supported.
See http://tinyurl.com/kzmcwf5 for details.
