Worked on #47. Another new feature: Lino now has the concept
upload shortcuts. These are technically
excerpt shortcuts, which means that much
code was copied, and that configuration is similar. They are the
long-awaited successor for the now deprecated
The first upload shortcut is id_document, visible for newcomer agents in the Coachings panel of a pcsw.Client.
In fact they maybe don’t want a list of guests but a list of events.
The difference is rather theoretical for the moment because they will
use it for individual consultations with one guest. But if there’s
more than one guest, they want to be able to close the meeting with a
single click (followed by a confirmation).
Lino in Egypt¶
Mahmoud finished a first draft of commondata-eg. This is his first full-fledged Python project which might theoretically be useful to other people.
commondata-eg is for Egypt what commondata.be is for Belgium and commondata.ee for Estonia: a central place for maintaining public and free common data in a more semantic form than Wikipedia. I wanted him to do this in order to get in touch with my way of doing projects.
If you read the README of commondata-eg until the end, you can see that this project provides Egyptian place names in both English and Arabic. For me, this is a visible sign of hope for a nonviolent relation between Christian and Muslim world in a time after Charlie hebdo. Lino becomes part of the world’s prayer for peace on earth :-)
Worked on API documentation¶
I converted the docstrings of some more modules
