lino.core.kernel.setup_site() now adds a new attribute modules
which makes it easy to directly address the installed modules.
This is going to replace resolve_action.
And then another internal change that took me more than a day: Actors no longer get instantiated. Application code simply uses the class object itself where there used to be a singleton instance.
(which is used heavily in
lino.Lino.setup_quicklinks()) now gets the Actor’s class
instead of a string. That’s more readable and probably also more
efficient (which is not unimportant since these methods are called
for every request).
One detail which I didn’t like so much is that application programmers must not forget to decorate their overridden Table class methods as @classmethod.
Checkin 2012-02-03 at 21:15 (the unit test suite is almost okay).
I plan to also convert TableRequest to Table instances.
