Store the village but show the municipality¶
I worked on #1950 for Lino Avanti: In Lino kann man pro Ort den übergeortneten Ort angeben. Also pro Dorf angeben, welche Gemeinde das ist. Und dann brauchen wir gar kein neues Feld, sondern Lino würde bei Wohnort “Heppenbach” automatisch (in deinen Tabellen) “Gemeinde Amel” schreiben.
help_text not loaded from docstrings in a prosa file¶
Note: lino_avanti was missing in the
help_texts_builder_targets dict in
conf.py of The Lino Book. But the help_text of the new
field is still not being loaded. Yes, the help_text_builder system
fails when the docstrings are in a prosa file.
>>> from lino.core.utils import simplify_name >>> print(simplify_name('lino_avanti.lib.avanti.models.AllClients')) lino_avanti.lib.avanti.AllClients
I am a bit afraid that this first approach is to simplistic because it is based on a hard-coded set of module name parts to be ignored (currently “models”, “ui”, “desktop”, “choicelists”).
The help text still does not get loaded. Maybe because it is a virtual
field. Also the overridden docstring for
lino_avanti.lib.avanti.Client.city is being ignored. That’s
probably because once a fields help_text has been set, Lino doesn’t
change it any more. To be meditated.
>>> from lino import startup >>> startup('lino_book.projects.adg.settings.demo') >>> from lino.api.doctest import * >>> s = [f for f in avanti.Client._meta.get_fields() if f.name.startswith('mun')] >>> print(s) [VirtualField lino_avanti.lib.avanti.models.Client.municipality]
I realized that a choicelist EnrolmentOptions would be useless overkill.
I added a new table
PresencesByEnrolment because I felt the
need when testing this. Seems to be a cool thing which they will
Reverted my yesterday changes to use_silk_icons¶
I remembered why Lino was ignoring the
use_silk_icons option for
ShowInsert actions: As long as
most standard actions are not available in unicode it is too ugly to
have these two converted. But we do want the default value to be
lino_xl.lib.cal has a beautiful set of working
unicode icons. We usually want these. And using silk icons should be
an explicit local choice.
Failed to update the verbose_name of a field¶
In the Lino Welfare test suite is a failure which looks more innocent than it is:
$ go welfare $ python setup.py test -s tests.SpecsTests.test_finan
The failure says that it expected “Externe Referenz” but got “Ihr Zeichen” as header of the last column of the table (finan.ItemsByPaymentOrder).
It is the
override_field_names() function in
lino_welfare.modlib.finan.models which is expected to change
the verbose_name of that field from “Ihr Zeichen” to “Externe
The function gets invoked correctly, but the verbose_name is
unchanged afterwards. It seems that

First ideas for the People plugin¶
There will be one Google account per Site, to be created by the site owner. And then all mobile users can connect to that account. We cannot have the authentication credentials per user in the Lino database because nobody would agree to give their personal credentials into a shared database.
What happens if 5 mobile users are then updating their contacts to that single account? According to this article it won’t be trivial to share contacts in a bi-directional way. But for calendars RW sharing seems commonly used.
This seems the best starting point.
