20170107 (Saturday, 07 January 2017)¶
I am in the final sprint before deploying a new version to Oikos in order to show them my work of the last weeks.
Move My Notification messages to the end of the dashboard¶
The “My Notification messages” table is now by default at the end of the dashboard. This change had a few positive side effects:
Hamza’s first tutorial¶
Hamza wrote a tutorial Discovering Lino using your debugger.
I added a reference to it to the Developer’s Guide.
I had asked Hamza to put the document to
that’s not necessary, the links can get directly to the raw files on
The tutorial is written in LibreOffice, not in Sphinx. This has advantages and disadvantages:
WYSIWYG makes authoring more productive when there are many screenshots. If I had asked Hamza to write it in Sphinx, then he would probably still be working on it ;-)
A printable pdf document is a coherent unit of knowledge. The reader does not feel lost in the middle of a huge web site which never seems to end.
Cannot run automatic tests inside the document.
If one day we would generate a real book from the Lino website, this tutorial would need special treatment.
