Editable ESF fields¶
I started working on #3581.
We add a new boolean field
ClientSummary.user_modified and want Lino to
automatically set this field to True whenever a statistical field gets
manually edited by an end user. Since there are many statistical fields,
we don’t want to define a
Model.FOO_changed() method on the model for each
of them. This is a use case for a custom
But we need a little optimization in the Lino core: the
before_ui_save method now receives a second positional
argument cw : the change watcher, or None.
Step 4 of the LETS tutorial¶
The Step 4 : User types page of the LETS tutorial (A Local Exchange Trade System)
caused a test failure when my copy of the lets repository was not at step4
branch. Ideed it is –by design– not a good idea to have doctests on this
page. That’s why I moved these doctests to the specs in the lets tutorial.
Also reviewed this page to provide more useful explanations. I discovered
Sphinx’s diff highlight mode. The diff chunks render beautifully and a good
for explaining, but they contain lines that start with “>>>” and which are not
meant to be tested by doctest. That’s why the book repository now uses the
exclude keyword argument of
atelier.test.make_docs_suite() to exempt
this file from being tested.
