Support for applications with responsive design¶
Cool! It is now possible to write Lino applications that use different screen layouts depending on the device they are running on. At least theoretically because the basic concepts are now implemented. I opened a new ticket #1076 for this.
Responsive Design Support was not a very urgent feature, but it will be needed to write a good solution for #1078.
Summary of changes:
Lino now differentiates between the “models module” and the “actors module” of a plugin.
rt.modelscontains the “actors” modules of each plugin.
On plugins which define a design module, the models module should no longer contain actors.
New site attributes
Note that choicelists aren’t actors and should be in
TODO: write documentation and a concrete example.
Ticket #1079 (Le système de mail ne fonctionne plus quand on clique sur “Arriver” pour envoyer la personne en salle d’attente) caused me to make some important changes to the notifications API. The first version had some quite strange constructs. I think it is getting better. And I also added two test modules to Lino Welfare.
And I fixed a bug in
lino.utils.djangotest which caused one of
these tests to fail when being run as part of the suite and to pass
when run individually. It seems that Django does not automatically
reset the current language between successive tests.
