th1ahi aelkner_, yvl, menesis, replaceafill.16:30
replaceafillgood morning/afternoon16:30
th1aOK, this is the week we -- especially me -- need to buckle down and get every view in place and its text reviewed.16:32
aelkner_oops, caps on16:32
th1aaelkner_ is strongly asserting the primacy of his tz.16:32
th1aLuckily it will be cool and Jennifer is working the next three days, so it will be good for my focus.16:33
th1aSo... yvl, would you like to start?16:34
yvlI updated jquery / jquery ui and included it in ST for now16:34
yvladded jQuery datepicker everywhere (I hope)16:35
yvlI think there are some problems in some places with date format -- I'll check manually later16:35
th1aDid you push those changes?16:36
yvlfixed XLS import/export, but still need to add new samle_data.xls and empty_data.xls, since format has changed a little16:36
yvland I guess it would be good to add schedule exception day support to XLS16:36
yvlthat's it.16:36
th1aWe don't need to do that now.16:37
th1aSo, csv import next?16:37
th1aI think it is good to keep it around.16:37
* yvl was thinking to drop that entirely 16:37
yvlbut ok, I can work on those16:38
th1aI think it is worth keeping it.16:38
yvlI will finish with the XLS, then move on to CSV views16:39
yvldo you want their import links spread out, like it was before?16:39
menesiswhy xls format has changed?16:39
yvltimetables have changed16:39
yvlI could have kept the old cryptic Timetable Model lines16:40
yvland deduce them from actual data16:40
menesisoh. true. so the old sample_data.xls or an xls exported from older schooltool will not work?16:40
yvlbut I don't see the point16:40
yvlyes, they will not work16:40
yvlshould I add support for old format, th1a?16:41
th1aI think not.16:41
th1aThere is no particular reason to do an export, upgrade the os, then do an import.16:42
th1aIt is just perverse.16:42
th1aI'll try to include a note in the docs mentioning it is not a good idea.16:42
th1aOK.  Thanks yvl.16:44
th1aAnything to report, menesis?16:45
replaceafilli took two day off last week, so little to report16:45
replaceafillth1a i do want your opinion on something16:46
replaceafillth1a i think we're going to change that text, correct?16:46
th1aDon't call it help.16:47
replaceafillah ok16:48
th1aNor an action.  ;-)16:48
replaceafillhow should we call it?16:48
th1aOh, I'll think about it.16:48
replaceafillbtw, the dialog is non modal, resizable and movable16:48
replaceafillth1a ok16:48
th1aLooks good though.16:48
replaceafillit would be perfect if i could put it right on top of the sidebar ;)16:49
* replaceafill looks at yvl :P16:49
th1aMake "enter grades" "take attendance" in the breadcrumbs.16:49
th1aOr Enter Attendance16:49
replaceafillah ok16:49
replaceafillth1a i also changed the zoom buttons to icons as you requested16:49
replaceafilli used black though16:50
th1aThey look fine.16:50
replaceafilli'm in the middle of the score systems view right now16:50
replaceafillthat's it from me16:51
replaceafillah th1a16:51
replaceafillabout the packing issue you reported16:51
replaceafilli have to change that view to a single form16:51
replaceafillyvl ah16:52
replaceafilli'll put it on my TODO :)16:52
replaceafillok, now i'm done16:53
th1athanks replaceafill16:53
aelkner_i got the rest of the objects done16:54
aelkner_you can add goals and status messages and set all goals or all status messages16:54
aelkner_also, i changed the person list widget to not display the email warning as you suggested16:55
aelkner_then i added a field called email to the add forms16:55
aelkner_however, it doesn't do anything yet16:55
aelkner_i think i need to disable the add event subscriber for goals and messages that auto sends the email16:56
aelkner_and put that feature specifically in the add goal and message views16:56
th1aSo we should be almost done?16:57
th1a(with intervention)?16:57
aelkner_we need section interventions16:57
th1aCan you get rid of the empty parentheses in Student/Parent recipient listing.16:58
th1aIt looks like a bunch of function calls.16:58
th1aSo my problem is that I can't get a working sandbox going.16:59
th1aEverything seemed fine until I tried to add interventions, then everything went pear shaped.17:00
aelkner_i'm back17:00
aelkner_what went wrong17:01
th1aaelkner_, and replaceafill have different buildout.cfg's.17:01
aelkner_so when i emailed you mine, that didn't help17:01
aelkner_could you start with replaceafill's and get it working again?17:02
aelkner_then i could help you add intervention to it17:02
th1aYou two are subtly different in your setups.17:02
aelkner_could you email me replaceafill's?17:02
replaceafillthat's mine17:03
replaceafilli think it's missing a new section [testing]17:03
replaceafillah no, [test]17:03
th1aMine ^17:03
aelkner_i see the problem17:03
aelkner_it's the way replaceafill does his branches17:04
aelkner_i do bzr branch lp:~schooltool-owners/schooltool.intervention/flourish schooltool.intervention17:04
aelkner_this way the name of the directory matches the name of the package17:05
aelkner_develop = . flourish.gradebook flourish.intervention flourish.journal17:05
aelkner_that's the line that is probably causing you the trouble17:05
aelkner_th1a, what is the name of your intervention branch?17:06
menesisthere is a schooltool.release project that makes running all schooltool plugins easier. and it has a flourish branch.17:07
menesisbzr branch lp:schooltool.release/flourish ; cd flourish ; make develop17:07
yvlor try:  develop = . ../flourish.gradebook ../flourish.intervention ../flourish.journal17:08
yvldepending on where you branches are17:08
aelkner_th1a, where are you branches17:08
th1aI'm going to try menesis's plan.17:09
replaceafillbtw, we don't have flourish series for the gradebook and journal, correct?17:09
aelkner_i put them in parallel with schooltool17:09
aelkner_th1a, i would recommend against that17:09
aelkner_you should be able to get this working with what we have17:09
menesisreplaceafill: hm. maybe. will create17:09
replaceafillmenesis thanks :)17:09
menesisaelkner_: true17:09
th1aToo late.17:09
menesisjust need to point to existing dirs17:09
* th1a drops the bag of gravel.17:10
menesisschooltool.release thing simply branches all schooltool* plugins to src/ and develops them17:10
menesisreplaceafill: added the series to gradebook and journal17:15
replaceafillmenesis great17:15
* replaceafill got th1a confused the other day using non-existing series :D17:15
th1aAnyone have any thoughts about this:
replaceafillth1a it's the same issue i had in Cambodia17:54
replaceafillwe need to embed the appropriate fonts in the pdf17:54
replaceafillhave no idea how to do it dynamically though :(17:55
replaceafillsince the fonts are set on start up17:55
th1aCan you leave a comment for now to that effect, replaceafill?17:57
*** jelkner has joined #schooltool18:01
replaceafillth1a zyt?19:08
th1areplaceafill:  I have now obtained my lunch.19:32
replaceafillping me when we can check the score system add form19:32
replaceafillold form:
replaceafillnew form:
th1aCan you format it like a table?19:34
replaceafillth1a what about like that, refresh19:43
replaceafilli wonder if we could move the 'Add a lower score' to the row19:44
replaceafillof the table19:44
replaceafillmaybe with some explanation about the "lower score" part...19:44
replaceafillabove the table19:45
replaceafillStart with the highest score. Click "Add a lower score" to add scores until you have created a score with a minimum percentage of 0.19:45
replaceafillmaybe moving that paragraph...19:45
*** jelkner has quit IRC20:06
replaceafillth1a moved the Add button to the row20:15
th1aIt is coming together.20:18
th1aThis evolution can take a long time...20:21
th1a(database evolution)20:21
th1a10 minutes and counting...20:21
th1aTook about 20 minutes total to evolve the sample data.20:36
*** menesis has quit IRC20:57
th1areplaceafill, Journal is REALLY slow to come up with sample data.21:24
replaceafilldo we have journal data in the xls?21:25
*** dreich has quit IRC21:25
replaceafillah ok, i'll load the Data.fs to see21:25
replaceafillth1a what's the user and section you selected?21:26
*** pgulley has quit IRC21:33
replaceafillevolution took 11 minutes for me21:40
th1aHow's journal working?21:47
th1aGradebook doesn't seem to to have the same issue.21:47
replaceafillit is really slow21:48
th1aWhich?  Both?21:48
replaceafillno, the journal21:48
replaceafilli'm trying to find out what is it21:48
th1aIt is so bad it is probably something simple.21:49
th1aaelkner_:  ayt?21:54
*** menesis has joined #schooltool22:10
replaceafillth1a found it22:55
replaceafilli'm calling the same huge method 4 times in the template :S22:55
replaceafillmaking a single copy improves it22:55
replaceafilla lot22:55
th1aYeah, I knew it was something like that.22:55
th1aLike when I calculated a 300 student report by starting over the entire report on each iteration.22:56
th1aWell not that bad.  ;-)22:56
* replaceafill loves mgedmin profilehooks :)22:57
replaceafillreally easy to use22:57
