Weekly Update 93: Help us convert to full templates!
This is a copy of our weekly newsletter for developers which you can subscribe to here.
We need your help updating old, crusty, structured Goodies to much more flexible (and beautiful) templates! Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to convert Instant Answers from our current to-do list by:
- Commenting here on which IAs you'll be working on.
- Using the docs + our help to convert your chosen IA.
- Celebrating additional contribution credit across the IAs you help fix up.
If you're looking for a different challenge this weekend, there are still plenty of programming queries which are not covered by an Instant Answer. Check out https://github.com/duckduckgo/duckduckgo/wiki/Programming-IA-Coverage and see what you can add!
Of course, you can always work on one of the issues or improvements noted below:
ProductHunt: Tiles have inconsistent height
We need to get the card heights consistent. Changing the variant object should fix that.
Public Holidays: Merge duplicate date/events
Events on the public holidays IA are repeated several times when the only change in data is the region.
Astrobin Apod: Trigger on APOD
It seems like users of the site also know it as APOD -- should it trigger on that as well.
Zanran: US Corporate Tax Rates
The results for 'US Corporate Tax Rates' (see attached) seem worse than the links, and so this shouldn't pass relevancy checks.
Braille: bad triggers
We should modify the triggers to allow something like "braille: ", "to braille", "in braille", etc., to get it back online.
Parcelforce IA triggers for Microsoft KB
Parcelforce shouldn't be triggering on Microsoft KB queries.
Have a good weekend!
