Git cheat sheet¶
Note about how I do this. For each of our projects, Hamza made a fork to his github account. I added his fork on my machine as a remote (for every project):
$ git remote add hamza https://github.com/HamZuS/XXX.git
And now the most simple usage is to do the following (for every project):
$ git fetch hamza $ git merge hamza/master
I tried Hamza’s changes on the test environment in Eupen.
It turned out that they do have duplicate accounts. At least for the
moment. A duplicate
Account object currently exists if two
clients have a common account at the bank. Of course this is not
correct (and I need to think with Gerd about how to solve this), but
in order to see first results, I changed the
Found more than
one account with IBAN xxx error issued in
lino_cosi.lib.sepa.models from an Exception to a simple logger
I then had to reload their database from the nightly snapshot because
now nullable, i.e. the database structure has changed. With plain
Django (1.7 or later) you would run migrations to do this. But with
Lino it is easier to restore a dump which must of course have been
generated before (see Data migrations à la Lino).
I then understood a bug in the database structure: the bank_account
field of a sepa.Movement must not be a pointer to sepa.Account.
We do not want an Account object for all possible accounts in the
world but only for those whose partner is known to us. I changed the
name of that field from bank_account to remote_account. I added a
field remote_bic (which can be blank) and have it be imported in
Each restore takes –admittedly– about 10 minutes. This is certainly much more time than a regular database migration with Django would need. But for my customers (until now) it is no problem to have their server down during 10 minutes and to do such works only between 6pm and 8am. The advantage of my system (of reloading a snapshot instead of Django’s migrations) is to be more flexible and more intuitive. Especially in situations like this one where I do a series of several quick changes in database structure. Imagine for example that I would discover now (during the second restore) that I have some stupid bug in the database structure which makes the resulting data unusable. With Django migrations such a bug would cause quite some work because I would need to manually edit the migrations. I have no experience with Django migrations, but until now I am satisfied with my system and don’t feel a need to start using them. We will think about this more in detail when #38 is finished and all my customers have upgraded…
Yet another commit and push because I had need seen that the
remote_bank_bic field of a
BankTransaction defaults to False if
the field is empty.
Et voilà, finally I can invite Gerd to have a look at the imported data!
It is a historic event for Lino because this is the first user-visible change which was mostly done by somebody else than me.
When to check clearings¶
I continued on #554. The last session (Wednesday, October 14, 2015) revealed
the problem that Lino automatically runs
each document to be registered. While this is useful in daily work, it
caused a serious bottleneck when importing 25000 vouchers.
That’s why I added a new option
Journal whose default value is True, but
lino_xl.lib.tim2lino sets it to False.
TODO: add an action per partner which manually runs check_clearings.
