Assignment 2: Chatting with Friends Introduction
The primary learning outcome for a1 was to provide you with an opportunity to learn how to work with modules from the Python Standard Library, explore recursive functions, and gain familiarity with error handling.
For assignment 2, you are going to build upon your code from the a1 program, by creating a local-rst journaling program. This means that your journal entries will be stored locally (on your computer) with an option to be shared to the Internet. Where on the Internet? Any server that supports the ICS32 distributed social platform (DSP) (for now that’s just me)!
Summary of Program Requirements
1. Manage user data using a le store
2. Design a command line user interface
3. Write code to support a communication protocol
4. Write code to communicate with a remote server over network sockets
Learning Goals
1. Working with modules
2. Integrate existing code into your program 3. Communicating with networks and sockets 4. Working with protocols
Program Requirements
Unlike the previous assignment, you will have a lot more exibility in how you design your program’s user interface. I will not be providing a validity checker for this assignment, so the input and output of your program is largely up to you. However, there are some conditions:
You must divide your program into at least three modules, not including the Prole module. Your modules should be named and loosely modeled after the descriptions below.
1. a2.py: Your rst module will be the entry point to your program.
2. ds_protocol.py: Your adaptation of the DS Protocol.
3. ds_client.py: Your distributed social client module should contain all code required to exchange messages with
the DS Server.
You must retain the functionality specied for a1. A user should be able to user your program to locate, create, and load .dsu les. If you were unable to get all a1 features to be fully functional, don’t worry, you won’t be penalized again. Just carry through to a2 whatever you have completed.
You must also retain the input command format for any new commands your program may need, which if you recall looks like this:
You must use the Profile.py module that accompanies this assignment without modication (more on that below).
Otherwise, you are free to design your program any way you like. This means if you would like to provide more helpful feedback after error conditions, for example, you are free to do so.
The program you will be creating is divided into two parts. I strongly encourage you to read through both parts so that you have a clear picture of what the complete program will do. Then focus on completing part 1 rst. Ensure that part 1 is reliably working before continuing on to part 2.
 Prole module update
If you struggled with input processing in a1 or would like to compare your approach to ours, we are releasing a demo
program that includes two way to process input.

Part 1
Your program should extend the create command that you built in a1. When a user enters the create command, not only will your program create a new DSU le, but it will also use inputs to collect additional data from the user. The collected data should be contained in a Prole object until the user ends the program, at which time the data should be saved to the user created DSU le.
 Program Feature
Extend the ‘C’ create DSU le command to collect prole information about the user and store the prole information
using the Prole module.
 Prole module update
Bug xes made on 1/28 at 3:03 PM PST to v0.1.6
The DSU Prole Module
You must use the Prole module (linked above) to store the data you collect from the user. The Prole module has two primary functions: 1) Provides properties to store user input, and 2) Provides encode and decode functions to support saving prole data to a DSU le. To understand how to use Prole module, you will be required to study the code that it contains. Your user interface should collect all of the data represented by the properties in the Prole module.
 Code Reading Tip
Asking questions and working together is a critical component to a successful development team. So rather than tell you exactly how to use the Prole class, I want you to help each other gure it out. Although you are not allowed to share the code you write for this assignment with each other, you are allowed to share what you learn about the Prole module. My only requirement is that you do so publicly using the a2-qa channel in Zulip. We will keep an eye on conversation and make sure you are all headed in the right direction.
Your program should allow a user to search for and load a DSU le using the input command conventions established in a1. While you should have the search functionality already in place, you will need to add support for loading a DSU le.
 Program Feature
Add new command to user interface to support loading DSU les.
As you might recall, in a1 you performed a very similar operation when you implemented the ‘R’ command. We don’t want to change the behavior of the ‘R’ command, as there may be conditions in which a user might like to check the contents of a DSU le before loading it. Therefore, you will need to create a new input command to support loading an existing DSU le. There are two ways to approach this task: 1) create a new input command (e.g., ‘O [path].dsu’) or 2) add a load option to the ‘R’ command (e.g., ‘R [path].dsu -l’). The choice is yours, but be sure to inform the user about how they should go about loading a DSU le!
Finally, as this program will be growing in complexity for the rest of the quarter, you should start getting used to writing tests. A good place to start is to ensure that your program is properly loading and saving prole data after it has been supplied by the user.
Part 2
Now that you have a program that can successfully store and retrieve user input, it’s time to do something with it! For the second part of this assignment, you will be connecting to a server and sending the user data you have collected in Part 1 to the world wide web. You will do this by using sockets.
Much of the work you will need to do to connect to the DS Server using network sockets is covered in the Networks and Sockets lecture. If you haven’t watched the lecture or looked through the notes yet, now is a good time!
Unlike the Profile.py module that is supplied to you, you will need to create the ds_client.py module yourself. However, it must contain and make use of the following function signature.

The validity checking tool that we will use for grading will import your ds_client.py module and call this function with randomly generated values. When called, the information we supply should either successfully transmit the data to the DS Server or, in the case of incorrect data, gracefully inform our program what went wrong.
 Program Feature
Connect to, send, and receive information with a remote DSP server
When communicating with a server using sockets, it is common to establish a protocol for exchanging messages. A protocol is a predened system of rules to transfer information between two or more systems. For a2, your program will need to support the DSP protocol to successfully communicate with the DSP server. Your protocol code should be placed in the ds_protocol.py module.
The DSP protocol supports the following send commands:
Accepts either an existing user and password, or a new user and password
Accepts a journal post for the currently connected user
All protocol messages must be sent in JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) format. All responses from the DSP server will be in JSON format as well.
 Tip
You don’t have to concern your self too much with JSON for this class. However, if you would like to learn more about
JSON and why it is a great format for storing and transporting data, visit:
The following code snippets demonstrate how each of the DSP commands should be wrapped in JSON. You are free to adopt these templates for your program.
The DSP protocol also supports response commands:
Will be received when a send command is unable to be completed
Your program should expect one of these two responses after sending a command. The following code snippet demonstrates how the response command should be wrapped in JSON. Again, you are free to adopt this template for your program.
Accepts a user bio, either adding or replacing existing user bio
# join as existing or new user
{“join”: {“username”: “ohhimark”,”password”: “password123″,”token”:”user_token”}}
# timestamp is generate automatically in the Profile module using Python’s
# time.time() function
{“token”:”user_token”, “post”: {“entry”: “Hello World!”,”timestamp”: “1603167689.3928561”}}
# for bio, you will have to generate the timestamp yourself or leave it empty.
{“token”:”user_token”, “bio”: {“entry”: “Hello World!”,”timestamp”: “1603167689.3928561”}}
Will be received when a send command is successful
# ds_client.py
def send(server:str, port:int, username:str, password:str, message:str, bio:str=None): ”’
The send function joins a ds server and sends a message, bio, or both
:param server: The ip address for the ICS 32 DS server.
:param port: The port where the ICS 32 DS server is accepting connections. :param username: The user name to be assigned to the message.
:param password: The password associated with the username.
:param message: The message to be sent to the server.
:param bio: Optional, a bio for the user.

 Program Feature
Adapt the DSP protocol for use in your program.
A typical exchange between a program and a DS server might look like the following:
join_msg = ‘{“join”: {“username”: “ohhimark”,”password”: “password123”, “token”:””}}’
send = client.makefile(‘w’)
recv = client.makefile(‘r’) send.write(join_msg + ‘
resp = recv.readline()
>>> b{“response”: {“type”: “ok”, “message”: “Welcome back, ohhimark”, “token”: “07da3ddc-6b9a-4734-
In your Python code, you will treat JSON messages as type string. In the snippets above, you will likely need to replace the hard coded values (e.g., ohhimark, password123, etc.) with the variables in your program that store the actual data you intend to send to the DSP server. There are many ways to do this, but you should focus your efforts on using the string formatting functions found in the Python Standard Library.
 DS Server Protocol Helper Code
The following code was added on 2/1 to help you process json formatted messages sent by the server. NOTE: You will
need to adapt the example code to work with protocol messages.
To process the messages from the DS server, you may adapt the following code to reduce some of the extra work of parsing strings:
import json
from collections import namedtuple
# Create a namedtuple to hold the values we expect to retrieve from json messages.
DataTuple = namedtuple(‘DataTuple’, [‘foo’,’baz’])
def extract_json(json_msg:str) -> DataTuple: ”’
Call the json.loads function on a json string and convert it to a DataTuple object ”’
json_obj = json.loads(json_msg)
foo = json_obj[‘foo’]
baz = json_obj[‘bar’][‘baz’]
except json.JSONDecodeError: print(“Json cannot be decoded.”)
return DataTuple(foo, baz)
# Example Test
json_msg = ‘{“foo”:”value1″, “bar”: {“baz”: “value2”}}’
>>> DataTuple(foo=’value1′, baz=’value2′)
Finally, if you have made it this far, you are probably wondering about the information required to connect to the DSP server. I will have the server up and running very soon. In the meantime, you should be able to test using the echo server covered in lecture. Since this project page is public and I would like to avoid undesirable trafc aimed at my server, I will be communicating server details via Zulip only.
You may also be wondering, what happens to all the messages you send…Well, since we are using networked sockets, you may have guessed, all of your messages will be published to a publicly available web page. So be kind and respectful in the messages you write!
How we will grade your submission
# Error messages will primarily be received when a user has not been
# established for the active session. For example, sending ‘bio’ or ‘post’
# before ‘join’
{“response”: {“type”: “error”, “message”: “An error message will be contained here.”}}
# Ok messages will be receieved after every successful send command. # They likely will not be accompanied by a message.
{“response”: {“type”: “ok”, “message”: “”, “token”:”user_token”}}

This assignment will be graded on a 12-point scale, with the 12 points being allocated completely to whether or not you submitted something that meets all of the above requirements. The following rubric will be used:
Requirements and Function | 8 pts
Does the program do what it is supposed to do?
Does the ds_client module function independently of the rest of the program? Are there any bugs or errors?
Module Usage | 1 pts
Are all required modules named and used as specied?
Quality and Design | 3 pts
Is the code well designed?
Is the code clearly documented?
Now that you have successfully completed on large program, we will start to look at the quality and design criteria a little more closely. If you have not been putting time into organizing and documenting your code, now is a good time to start.
