Lino Care moving forward¶
The “simple” user profile must have access to a very limited functionality. They plan to invite many people to register as simple users and to enter their pleas.
A new table “Where I can help”
And one thing which looks tiny but caused a rather big series of code changes: in Lino Care we need an action to say “I want to assign this ticket to me”. I noted that a field assigned_to was defined on both
lino_xl.lib.cal.models.Event. This field is now defined in the new
Until now, if an application wanted to have the take action on its calendar events, it had to simply import a module
from lino_xl.lib.cal.workflows import take
This module no longer exists, and I moved away from this approach (it is still there for
lino_xl.lib.cal.workflows.feedback). This approach is deprecated because it has at least one disadvantage: you cannot remove it once it has been imported.
The new approach is the
lino.modlib.users.mixins.Assignablemixin in combination with two new user roles
Bugfix : GridEdit.select_rows is now False (it was True)
Lino at FOSDEM 2017¶
I submitted a request for a devroom at FOSDEM 2017:
Title: Getting started with Lino
I would give a short overview of the Lino framework, write a few example applications, and if participants bring ideas, maybe we will create a new application from scratch. Participants can get started on their own by reading http://www.lino-framework.org/dev/ before the event and get further support during FOSDEM.
Coordinator’s affinity to the topic of the devroom:
Luc is the author of the framework
Why does it fit FOSDEM:
Lino is a young expanding framework being used on 5 production sites, 4 of them in Belgium. The framework is designed for professional developers who write customized database applications for their customers or employer.
