As a side effect of my work as a Python developer for Lino I often receive job offers. I generalized the statement I wrote Thursday, May 20, 2021 and used those thoughts in my new Hire me page.

The inv bd for getlino is failing on GitLab. I can reproduce the problem on my computer as follows.

  • Deactivate my ~/.atelier/config.py.

  • In my terminal:

    go getlino
    pip uninstall atelier
    pip install atelier
    inv clean -b bd
    

The conf.py file of the getlino docs is not yet converted to the “new style”. But that shouldn’t be the problem.

If calls atelier.sphinxconf.interproject() as follows:

from atelier.sphinxconf import interproject
interproject.configure(globals(), 'atelier')

The problem was caused by a bug in atelier.projects.Project.get_xconfig(). For projects that were loaded from a python module installed from pypi (i.e. without a tasks.py file) it ignored the hard-coded default values.

The problem appeared only now because I had recently removed the line doc_trees = ['docs'] from the __init__.py file of several main modules. I removed it because it caused useless complexity: everybody knows that the default value for doc_trees is [‘docs’] and we shouldn’t repeat this.

I released atelier 1.1.39 to PyPI

Note that the test job for getlino still fails on GitLab. This is another story. It says:

./prep.sh: line 11: docker: command not found

We simply need to also install the docker system package. We can use their convenience script <https://docs.docker.com/engine/install/debian/#install-using-the-convenience-script>.
