Documentation

Motivated by the fact that Milton is learning Lino, I continued to work in the documentation.

The Lino test suite failed because I had added from __future__ import unicode_literals to the project_info.py.

Added new directive command with corresponding role cmd. This replaces the now obsolete :fab: role and the :fab_command: directive.

Removed my self-made directive and role directives and roles and changed existing docs to use their built-in equivalents (i.e. the rst domain which I discovered only recently). The following example which I wrote in the documentation of them remains pedagogically useful:

The :role:`role` *role* inserts a *reference to* a
role definition which is defined somewhere else using the
:dir:`role` *directive*.

The :role:`dir` *role* inserts a *reference to* a
directive definition which is defined somewhere else using the
:dir:`directive` *directive*.

Result:

The role role inserts a reference to a role definition which is defined somewhere else using the role directive.

The dir role inserts a reference to a directive definition which is defined somewhere else using the directive directive.

Moved the content of Getting started to a new tutorial Your first local Lino project.

Creating invoices from a partner

Continued to work in Lino Così (or lino.modlib.ledger to be precise).

ml.ledger.InvoicesByPartner now has a summary pane with an action link to create an invoice.

But this is still not yet usable because it creates only incoming invoices (ml.ledger.AccountInvoice), not sales invoices. In fact I should do this for any ml.ledger.Voucher ml.ledger.VouchersByPartner.

A subtle problem remains: the action links to create vouchers in the slave summary of ml.ledger.VouchersByPartner basically work, but the newly created document is not displayed in a detail window.

linoweb.js: When the insert window has been called by an action link (e.g. generated using ar.insert_button), then Lino.close_window can return undefined.

ext_renderer.py: the optional request argument to window_action_button and action_call is now an rt.ar, not a plain Django web request.

Unknown key ‘goto_record_id’ in action response

The lino.mixins.duplicable.Duplicate action caused an Internal Server Error “Unknown key ‘goto_record_id’ in action response.” Fixed.

ml.debts.Budget now also uses lino.modlib.excerpts.Certifiable.get_certifiable_fields()
