Lino’s new clothes

I merged Hamza’s work into master of lino_extjs6 and did a review. Some remarkas:

  • Cool! There is visible progress!

  • Yes, changes in the combobox still don’t get saved (you were right that the problems are not related ;-)

  • Why did you remove the Ext.BLANK_IMAGE_URL line (in Is it no longer used? Did you see how it was used before?

  • Did you notice that the elems.Container.label_align attribute does not work? Its value is layouts.LABEL_ALIGN_TOP, but the labels are aligned left of their field. Compare “before” and “after” below:

Getting Lino into Apache at welstv

I had this one in Apache’s error.log:

AH01630: client denied by server configuration: /home/lino/mypy/welstv/apache/

Explanation was that I had copied configuration from a pre-2.4 Apache, but Apache die some incompatible changes in runtime configuration syntax.

Then I had this one:

AppRegistryNotReady: The translation infrastructure cannot be
initialized before the apps registry is ready. Check that you don't
make non-lazy gettext calls at import time.

This came simply because Lino (or Django) wanted to return an error page even before Lino had started up. And that page (of course) requires translation.

Another one in Apache’s error.log:

avahi_entry_group_add_service_strlst("welstv") failed: Invalid host name

It seems that ServerName must contain at least one dot while ServerAlias doesn’t. So I wrote:

ServerName foo.welstv
ServerAlias welstv

This one was funny: I had the following content in my and wondered why I received a Bad Request (400):
