I worked on #3652.
Steve made me discover a design bug in
lino_xl.lib.vat: the item_vat
option (whether we want to include VAT in the price of the items of an invoice)
does not depend on the VAT regime. My solution at the moment is to have
it configurable as a plugin attribute, i.e. globally per site. This works for
now. Though it is maybe also not the final solution because we might get a
customer who wants certain invoices with item_vat set to True and others with
item_vat set to False. Maybe it should become a database field on Journal. But
it’s too early for a decision. Let’s leave this question open until we have
such a customer.
This caused some work for adapting the test cases because most invoices now have a bigger amount.
How to edit the invoice template¶
Steve wants to be able to configure himself his invoice template. #3656.
First step : make a local copy of the relevant templates:
$ go mysite $ cp -a env/lib/python3.6/site-packages/lino_xl/lib/sales/config .
Lino doesn’t find the local config dir¶
In weleup this bug doesn’t come out because the
config subdir of the
project directory is actually a symbolic link:
$ ls -ld config lrwxrwxrwx 1 lsaffre www-data 19 Sep 28 2018 config -> media/webdav/config
In that case the
os.path.isdir() returns False, which
I obviously ignored when I wrote
We definitively should resolve symbolic links before asking whether it is a directory.
This second bug made that the first didn’t come out.
One thing is clear : the local config directory should come first.
