comments (comments in Avanti)

The lino.modlib.comments in Lino Avanti is configured and used to satisfy the application requirements.

Lines starting with >>> in this document are code snippets that get tested as part of our development workflow.

>>> from lino import startup
>>> startup('lino_book.projects.avanti1.settings')
>>> from lino.api.doctest import *

Overview

Comments in Lino Avanti are considered confidential data and can be seen only by users with appropriate permission.

See also User types in Lino Avanti.

Private comments are seen only by their respective author.

Public comments are shown to other social workers. Comments are never shown to the external supervisor.

A system administrator can see all comments (it makes no sense to hide them because a system admin can easily create or use a user account with the permissions they want).

Comments are private by default:

>>> dd.plugins.comments.private_default
True

All partners are Commentable, but in Lino Avanti: we use comments only on Client.

>>> list(rt.models_by_base(comments.Commentable))  
[<class 'lino_avanti.lib.avanti.models.Client'>, <class
'lino_xl.lib.contacts.models.Company'>, <class
'lino_xl.lib.contacts.models.Partner'>, <class
'lino_xl.lib.contacts.models.Person'>, <class
'lino_xl.lib.households.models.Household'>]

Tests

The demo database contains 540 comments, and they are all private.

>>> rt.models.comments.Comment.objects.all().count()
540
>>> rt.models.comments.Comment.objects.filter(private=True).count()
540

Robin can see them all.

>>> rt.login("robin").show(comments.Comments,
...     column_names="id user owner", limit=6,
...     display_mode=((None, DISPLAY_MODE_TABLE),))
