Incubator Languages Progress Checking

If you go to the Incubator individual courses pages, you can check the progress of languages. The div 'course-progress-bar' actually has the attribute aria-valuenow, which is the % progress the contributors have reached on the target language towards the next phase.

For example, Chinese (Simplified) to English is currently about 0.77%!

Hm, could you walk us through exactly how to check this? I'm a novice programmer and I don't really do much on the web. I'm sure many other will have no programming experience whatsoever.

Use Chrome Developer Tools if you're in Chrome. Click on the button on top right with three lines. Click on tools. Then Developer Tools. Then click on the Magnifying glass, and click on the bar between 'Not released yet' and 'Released in beta!' on the site. And look in the code editor. You'll see <div blah blah> highlighted. Click on the arrow in the highlighed part. A new thing comes up below the highlighted part. The aria-valuenow attribute of the HTML element is the progress in percent.

Thanks. I guess that means that German-English is 86.3% complete?

Actually, there is some very very minute progress shown in the circle under Chinese to English as well.

Well, yes. I believe that's what he said originally, no offense meant.

Actually his method was to look directly at the code. I was just pointing out that you can see progress in the circle without using the developer tools. Maybe that's what he was saying though, I don't know.

I see what you mean, but I can hardly see it, and I'm not even really sure if there's anything there because the amount is so tiny.

Yeah. I see it. It's really hard to see without magnification though.

Yeah. It's hard to see the exact amount of progress though (or if the amount is minimal)

Also it now appears that the English courses all have 1952 words. (Using some Wolfram Alpha Magic!!) Which means the Polish guys have done 167 words!
