replaceafillhey th1a_16:33
replaceafillfor some reason my connection is getting hiccups16:33
th1a_Good timing!16:34
th1a_OK, let me pre-emptively say there is no reason the Attendance detail header says "E"16:36
replaceafillthat table shows periods16:36
th1a_OK, we'll leave it like that.16:37
*** th1a_ is now known as th1a16:37
th1aI got a query yesterday about doing auth against Google Auth.16:38
th1aGoogle Apps for Education, specifically.16:38
th1aAs in, possibly paying for it.16:38
th1aMy quick response was "shouldn't be too hard."16:38
replaceafilli hope you're right ;)16:38
th1aWe should be able to just wrap something like this
th1aAnd crib off the LDAP/CAS examples.16:39
replaceafillit'd be nice for sure16:40
replaceafillto develop and to have something like that16:40
*** yvl has quit IRC16:42
th1aIn theory, it is straightforward, right?16:42
replaceafillwell, it should be16:43
replaceafilland it's well documented16:43
replaceafilland we're not the first ones doing it :D16:43
replaceafilli almost hacked a working live search yesterday btw16:44
replaceafilli spent some time reading the jquery ui docs16:44
replaceafilland trying things16:44
th1aAny potential mine fields?16:46
replaceafilli wonder if there could be database conflicts if we query the server too quickly16:47
replaceafilli mean16:47
replaceafilllike if you write something16:47
replaceafillserver starts searching16:47
th1aWe'll potentially be hitting the ZODB in more rapid sequence.16:48
replaceafilland you delete the search and write another quickly16:48
th1aOr even inbetween typing letters?16:48
th1aThere might be some simple things we can do like waiting for at least three letters.16:48
replaceafillactually, that's a feature in the widget16:49
th1aAh, cool.16:49
th1aI'm not the first person to think of it.  ;-)16:49
replaceafilland the docs recommend you to set it to some sane value for remote queries16:49
replaceafillthe story of my life ;)16:49
th1aCan you just throttle the rate as well?16:49
th1aLike, 1 every 3 seconds?16:49
replaceafillif for instance we use live search in some view like /persons16:50
replaceafilldo you think we still need the batch functionality?16:50
replaceafilli haven't seen that option16:50
replaceafillor anything like that in the examples16:50
th1aWhat does the widget do if you have too many answers?16:51
replaceafillthere's an example with scroll16:51
th1aI'd say we'd want a pretty decent delay.16:51
replaceafillanother example from some geographic api, just returns the first 20 results16:51
th1aThe premise is that you're going to type until it is a shortish number of results.16:52
th1aAnd you can always just hit return, right, to get the regular results page?16:52
replaceafillwell, that's why i was wondering about the batch and the table below16:53
replaceafillif we keep it, we need the current behavior still available16:53
th1aOh, right, that's what I meant.16:54
replaceafillwe could even keep the [Search] button16:54
th1aYou should still be able to do it "manually" exactly as now.16:55
replaceafilli'll try not to mess with the existing functionality16:55
replaceafilland just "add" new one16:55
replaceafillanother question16:55
replaceafillthis won't work with relationship views, right?16:55
replaceafillwe have search widgets in the relationship views16:56
replaceafilllike adding a student to a section16:56
replaceafillthe ones with the checkboxes16:56
replaceafilland date fields, Select All, etc16:57
th1aI need to get logged into skype.16:57
