Please note we are preparing to participate in Google Code-in, and have reserved this issue for GCI participants - but we'd love to have your help with another one! Please check out https://code.publiclab.org to see more.

First Time?

This is a first-timers-only issue. This means we've worked to make it more legible to folks who either haven't contributed to our codebase before, or even folks who haven't contributed to open source before.

If that's you, we're interested in helping you take the first step and can answer questions and help you out as you do. Note that we're especially interested in contributions from people from groups underrepresented in free and open source software!

We know that the process of creating a pull request is the biggest barrier for new contributors. This issue is for you 💝

If you have contributed before, consider leaving this one for someone new, and looking through our general help wanted issues. Thanks!

🤔 What you will need to know.

Nothing. This issue is meant to welcome you to Open Source :) We are happy to walk you through the process.

The problem

image

The pluralization in the screenshot above is incorrect (ie. should be "1 person" not "1 people")

Solution

This is a simple one -- lets find the relevant line of code first:

<p class="posted-by-links"><a href="/tag/<%= tag.name %>"><%= Tag.follower_count(tag.name) %> people discussing</a></p>

As you can see, this line has no conditional and "people" will always just be plural.

Let's correct this: - Rails gives us a really convenient way to resolve it through the pluralize method.

Update the inner a tag to use the method like so:

<a href="/tag/<%= tag.name %>"><%= pluralize(Tag.follower_count(tag.name), 'person') %> discussing</a>

Thanks!!

Step by Step

  • Fork the repository and set it up locally following the main repo README instructions https://github.com/publiclab/plots2
  • Create a new feature branch with a unique name descriptive to the issue
  • Try to fix the issue following the steps above, but even before you're done, you can:
    commit your changes to your branch and start a pull request (see contributing to Public Lab software) but mark it as "in progress" if you have questions or if you haven't finished
  • Reference this issue in your pull request body
  • Once you submit your pull request, an additional checklist will be provided for getting it merged

Please keep us updated

💬 - We encourage contributors to be respectful to the community and provide an update within a week of claiming a first-timers-only issue. We're happy to keep it assigned to you as long as you need if you update us with a request for more time or help, but if we don't see any activity a week after you claim it we may reassign it to give someone else a chance. Thank you in advance!

If this happens to you, don't sweat it! Grab another open issue.
