Moved Luc’s blog out of Lino

This is my first blog entry which will not go to the Lino repository. As part of the process of decentralizing the Lino development, I moved my blog out the Lino documentation tree. It is now available at http://luc.lino-framework.org. Updated /docs/blog.

Creating countries

It was not possible to create new Country objects because these have a non-numeric primary key.

The type of the primary key

How to test whether an object’s model has a primary key which can be pointed to using a GenericForeignKey:

>>> import os
>>> os.environ['DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE'] = 'lino.projects.min1.settings.demo'
>>> from django.db import models
>>> from lino.api.shell import *
>>> obj = countries.Country.objects.get(pk='BE')
>>> obj.pk
u'BE'
>>> obj._meta.pk
<django.db.models.fields.CharField: isocode>
>>> GFK_TARGETS = (models.AutoField, models.IntegerField)
>>> isinstance(obj._meta.pk, GFK_TARGETS)
False
>>> isinstance(contacts.Partner._meta.pk, GFK_TARGETS)
True

Duplicate humans

Two persons Norbert Berg and Norbert van Berg should be detected as similar, but Norbert van Berg and Lydia van Berg not

Extended lino.mixins.humans and lino_welfare.modlib.dupable_clients.mixins.DupableClient. Added test cases in /tutorials/human/index.
