# 20170107 (Saturday, 07 January 2017)¶

I read “Weapons of Math Destruction” by Cathy O’Neil and started a new document Common knowledge.

I wrote comments in #1333 and #932.

I am in the final sprint before deploying a new version to Oikos in order to show them my work of the last weeks.

## Move My Notification messages to the end of the dashboard¶

The “My Notification messages” table is now by default at the end of the dashboard. This change had a few positive side effects:

• I renamed get_admin_main_items() to get_dashboard_items()
• I added a get_dashboard_items to the Plugin class, and Lino Noi uses this new feature, it no longer defines its dashboard items per Site but delegates this to the installed plugins.

## Hamza’s first tutorial¶

Hamza wrote a tutorial Discovering Lino using your debugger.

I added a reference to it to the Developer’s Guide.

I had asked Hamza to put the document to docs/dl/dev, but that’s not necessary, the links can get directly to the raw files on GitHub.

The tutorial is written in LibreOffice, not in Sphinx. This has advantages and disadvantages:

• WYSIWYG makes authoring more productive when there are many screenshots. If I had asked Hamza to write it in Sphinx, then he would probably still be working on it ;-)
• A printable pdf document is a coherent unit of knowledge. The reader does not feel lost in the middle of a huge web site which never seems to end.
• Cannot run automatic tests inside the document.
• If one day we would generate a real book from the Lino website, this tutorial would need special treatment.
