Presto prototype getting ready¶
I installed the prototype for Presto on their site and plan to invite them soon to the first visit. This visit will be important for Lino, I don’t want to know what would happen if would fail (which won’t happen of course ;-).
I released Lino and XL to PyPI (despite the fact that there are still failures in the test suites).
Some minor layout changes in
Found some bugs: end_time, presto.Clients was showing only newcomer clients.
Difference between “Client” and “Customer”¶
I read this
and thought: Yes, that’s what I felt when I chose “customer” and not “client”
in the ledger plugin. In the
lino_xl.lib.clients plugin the clients are
even more specialized: they are humans (physical persons) and not
organizations. There are businesses who call their customer “client” even
though it is an organization (e.g. lawyers), but we do not have such customers
at the moment. Of course I’d say that the customers of Rumma & Ko are
long-term customers and have a profound and well-deserved “trust” in us, but
they remain organizations, not humans.
Customizing filter parameters¶
setup_parameters is responsible for defining parameter fields
param_defaults is responsible for setting default values for parameters
get_request_queryset is responsible for translating the parameter values into a queryset
The methods can be defined either on the model or on a table.
An example is lino_xl.lib.ClientBase
Minor changes in Lino Avanti¶
I fixed their #2990.
Took me some time because things are complex and because I had to understand the required_roles for the calendar views. For example I tried to have OfficeStaff no longer inherit from OfficeOperator because this caused a TypeError “Cannot create a consistent method resolution” in avanti where SiteAdmin inherits from SocialWorker…
The required_roles for the new calendar views were not yet set as it should (I
guess that Tonis and Hamza simply didn’t care because we never talked about
it). In general you must be
lino_xl.lib.office.OfficeOperator (or both). Note that avanti overrides
the required_roles of
lino_xl.lib.cal.CalendarView because they have
different rules: only users who may see client names may see the calendar.
Changes en passant:
The new calendar views are now visible for all applications (no longer only presto).
Default calendar view is now monthly instead of weekly
Restore Event.__str__ previous version
Renamed some classes in
