I read this started to try to use a Belgian phone number. Our new number in Belgium will be +32 43460150 (but it is still experimental and might change). The biggest problem will be to find a legal person in Belgium who is willing to act as representative.
Running Lino on Debian 10 (buster)¶
I continued with Hamza on #3095. We can already conclude that getlino has finished its work and has done a good job. Okay it doesn’t yet create a bash_aliases file. But anyway that’s maybe just a personal preference for me.
It took us some time to get my browser to open the new website through the SSH
tunnel. TIL : When I changed something in the
settings.py file, I must
now restart supervisor instead of restarting the web browser.
Tidy 5.2 cleaned up curly quotes but 5.6 doesn’t¶
We still have the following error message during
Exception: Errors while processing <p class=“Default“>Herrn Albert ADAM</p>
I opened #3188 for this.
do text from html(u'<p class=“Default“>'+this.owner.get_address('<br>')+u'</p>')
The string passed to
accidentally contains curly
quotes instead of straight quotes.
The actual work happens in
lino.utils.html2xtml which says:
from tidylib import tidy_fragment def html2xhtml(html, **options): options.update(doctype='omit') options.update(show_warnings=0) options.update(indent=0) # options.update(output_xml=1) options.update(output_xhtml=1) document, errors = tidy_fragment(html, options=options)
I might open the document in libreoffice, replace the curly quotes by straight ones, make a release of xl and update their environment.
But my problem is that we didn’t have this problem before. The
lino_xl.lib.excerpts successfully creates the file
media/cache/appypdf/excerpts.Excerpt-2.pdf which comes from above
It seems that tiny successfully parses those curly quotes on my machine (and on travis, and on other machines) and that it doesn’t like them any more on the new server. Yes, this is our first usage of Debian 10. We checked whether tidy has some option to control this behaviour http://tidy.sourceforge.net/docs/quickref.html
On Debian 9 we have HTML Tidy version 5.2.0, while on Debian 10 it is 5.6.0. This seems the relevant difference.
Configuring LDAP authentication¶
LDAP authentication is now done using nginx and django-auth-ldap instead of apache and mod_wsgi. So it is no longer done by the browser using plain http auth. Plain http auth is obsolete and has the disadvantage that you cannot sign out without leaving the browser and cannot remain signed in when leaving the browser.
But surprise: LDAP is more complex than Hamza and I thought. We tried to migrate
the LDAP options from the Apache configuration to the
as demonstrated in the
lino_book.projects.team.settings.demo. But we
decided to give up and ask somebody who knows how to configure LDAP server.
Nicolas, Steve or Gerd.
