#505 continued

I continued to compare the layouts in lino_cosi.lib.sepa.ui with screenshots of real data imported by TIM.

I removed the AccountDetail class and use a simple string for detail_layout instead. OrphanedAccounts now inherits from Accounts (instead of repeating the definition of detail_layout.

I set editable to False for Movements and Statements because they should never be edited by the users.

The detail_layout for Statements is now “complex” (i.e. needs a class definition) because define two panels top_left and top_right.

I read http://lxml.de/xpathxslt.html and then modified lino_cosi.lib.sepa.camt and lino_cosi.lib.sepa.parserlib: they completely ignored the <Dt> element of opening and closing balances. Their statement had a date which was the execution_date of the first transaction. Now a statement has two date attributes start_date and end_date.

I removed the Statement.date_done field because it contained useless information.

Committed in lino (just a docstring), cosi (code changes) and welfare (adapted test suite).

Lino failing on Drone and Travis

That’s because we currently have the setup_info.py file without “Django<1.7” (which is more convenient for testing).

Cannot write VirtualGetter object

Yes, there are still several tough challenges for #38. Let’s look at one of them:

lino.modlib.households.models.Household inherits the overview field from lino.modlib.contacts.models.Partner which defines it as follows:

@dd.displayfield()
def overview(self, ar):
    return E.div(*self.get_overview_elems(ar))

This is a normal read-only virtual field. It is correct that Lino complains when you try to write to it. But who is trying to write to this and why?

The message Cannot write <lino.core.fields.VirtualGetter object at 0x7f95056e8790> to field VirtualField <class 'lino.modlib.households.models.Household'>.overview is not very clear. I add a __repr__ method to VirtualGetter:

def __repr__(self):
    return "<{1}>.{0}".format(self.vf.name, repr(self.instance))

And also optimized the __repr__() method of VirtualField.

The message becomes:

NotImplementedError: Cannot write
<Partner #101 (u'Doe John')>.overview
to field
VirtualField lino.modlib.households.models.Household.overview

Now I start to understand what’s happening. Look at the code of insert_child:

for field in obj._meta.fields:
    attrs[field.name] = getattr(obj, field.name)
new_obj = child_model(**attrs)

And in Django 1.8 (unlike 1.6) the _meta.fields property is a list of all fields, including virtual fields. In Django 1.8 we have another property _meta.concrete_fields which contains only “concrete” fields (whatever this might be exactly, but I guess it’s what we want). So the solution is:

if AFTER17:
    fields_list = obj._meta.concrete_fields
else:
    fields_list = obj._meta.fields
for field in fields_list:
    attrs[field.name] = getattr(obj, field.name)

Tested Lino, Welfare, Cosi, Noi under Django 1.6 and then committed above change.

ValidationError: {u’site_calendar’: [u’Calendar instance with id 1 does not exist.’]}

Fixing the Cannot write VirtualGetter object problem did not automatically fix the other problem. What a pity (I hoped that it would). So now let’s have a closer look at the output:

$ go min2

INFO Loaded 1 objects

And I note the Building /lino_cache/min2/media/cache/js/lino_000_en.js message. This message is coming too early. My guess is that something triggers the generation of the linoweb.js file.

And I even seem to know the reason for this. It is our lino.startup() function. We must differentiate between Lino startup and Django startup.

  • Django startup imports the settings and the models. This will also instantiate the Site.
  • Lino startup comes afterwards: it instantiates the kernel (which analyses the models), builds the linoweb.js and lots of other things.

I now made (and committed) the changes which should theoretically work. But appearently not in practice: in Django 1.6 the tests pass, but in Django 1.8 above process now hangs without any message. Sometimes it does not even react to Ctrl-C and I have do kill it.
