Adding Code of Conduct in Open Event Web app

Open Event Server sends JSON data as a response of its REST (Representational State Transfer) API. The main eventyay platform allows organizers to add code of conduct to their event, as a result the JSON data sent by the server contains code of conduct key value pair, this value is extracted from the data and is used to create a separate page for Code of Conduct in any event.

The steps for data extraction and compilation are as follows:

Extracting code of conduct

Since open event server has two types of JSON data formats v1 and v2, both of them contains code of conduct. The key for code of conduct in v1 is code_of_conduct and for v2 is code-of-conduct. The data extraction for v1 data format occurs in fold_v1.js and the main event details are stored in an object urls as shown below:

fold_v1.js

const urls= {
 ....
 ....
 ....

 email: event.email,
 orgname: event.organizer_name,
 location_name: event.location_name,
 featuresection: featuresection,
 sponsorsection: sponsorsection,
 codeOfConduct: event.code_of_conduct
};

 

fold_v2.js

const urls= {
 ....
 ....
 ....

 email: event.email,
 orgname: event['organizer-name'],
 location_name: event['location-name'],
 featuresection: featuresection,
 sponsorsection: sponsorsection,
 codeOfConduct: event['code-of-conduct']
};

Adding template for CoC

Now we have extracted the data and have stored the value for code of conduct in an object, we need to render this in a template. For this, we created a template named CoC.hbs and the data for code of conduct is accessed via {{{eventurls.codeOfConduct}}} as shown below.

{{>navbar}}
<div class="main-coc-container container">
 <div class="row">
   <div class="middle col-sm-12">
     <h2 class="filter-heading track-heading text-center">
       <span>Code of Conduct</span>
     </h2>
   </div>
 </div>

 <div class="row">
   <div class="col-sm-12 col-md-12">
     <div class="coc">
       {{{eventurls.codeOfConduct}}}
     </div>
   </div>
 </div>
</div>
{{>footer}}

Compiling and minifying

Now we have stored the event details in an object we copy this object as a key to jsonData, this data is passed as an argument for compiling the code of conduct template namely CoC.hbs to a HTML file and is lately minified. For minification purpose gulp module is used.

if(jsonData.eventurls.codeOfConduct) {
 setPageFlag('CoC');
 fs.writeFileSync(distHelper.distPath + '/' + appFolder + '/CoC.html', minifyHtml(codeOfConductTpl(jsonData)));
}

Adding link to CoC page

Till now, we have successfully compiled a HTML page for code of conduct of an event. This page is linked under a heading in the footer section of every page by placing reference to it in footer.hbs.

{{#if eventurls.codeOfConduct}}
 <li><a target="_self" href="CoC.html">Code of Conduct</a></li>
{{/if}}

Customizing the CoC container

The code of conduct page is customized by placing the container in the center and aligning the text. Styling like background-color, padding and margin are set on the container to provide a better appearance to the page.

.coc {
 margin: auto;
 text-align: justify;
 width: 60%;

 a {
   &:hover {
     color: $dark-black;
   }
 }
}

.main-coc-container {
 background-color: $main-background;
 margin-bottom: 4%;
 margin-top: 2%;
 padding-bottom: 50px;
 padding-top: 2%;
}
