Development Challenges and Solutions

How our team coped with a range of development challenges

Working with Google Documents

Problem: Google Documents’ editor is far from usual. It has complex logic and structure. Besides, the Google Documents service is going to use canvas instead of HTML, and it makes text processing even harder. Solution: We are adapting the Chrome extension to canvas to facilitate spell checking.

Highlighting mistakes

Problem: Writer Chrome Extension calculates the positions of wrong words and phrases by their coordinates. When the words’ positions are changing or new text appears, the coordinates need to be recalculated. Solution: We created an algorithm that completes this task and now our team is working on its upgrade.
