12:58 ashimema what are people thoughts about angular making it into koha?
12:58 ashimema for staff client at least
13:00 oleonard ashimema: The only way to answer that is to show how it would be useful
13:01 ashimema well, I'm working on a number of proofs of concept at the moment.
13:02 ashimema but it's a paradigm shift..
13:02 ashimema angular is all about single page applications (which I feel koha is actually rather well suited to)..
13:02 ashimema I wouldn't make the entire staff client an SPA, but rather a series of SPA's..
13:03 ashimema Patrons and Cataloging are two fantastic examples of where it would be awesome.
13:04 oleonard I think you'd have to show that such change would *not*: - make the staff client less accessible - make it less translatable - make it harder to maintain - make it slower
13:04 ashimema at the moment when your viewing a patron record, each tab on the left is an entirely new page with associated scripts and templates.. that seems crazy to me..
13:04 ashimema having each tab as an angular view would mean less page load, more responsiveness and tidier code.
13:05 ashimema I'll finish this prototype and see what people think
13:05 * oleonard hasn't really looked at angular so he can't comment on it in itself
13:06 jcamins ashimema: my thought is that it's way too much trouble for the benefits it would offer.
13:06 ashimema I don't think it would affect translatability at all, it would increase speed and maintainability and i have no idea how it would affect accessability.
13:06 ashimema for 'new' stuff it would make coding a pleasure again ;)
13:07 brendan_ see I’d be into that ashimema
13:07 marcelr jcamins: hi; could you have a look at my comment on bug 7419?
13:07 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=7419 enhancement, P5 - low, ---, jcamins, Needs Signoff , Add authority deduplication script
13:07 ashimema but yeah.. would be allot of work to convert existing stuff.. but then it would be easier to convert stuff to angular than to manually write custom ajax cruft like we are doing for a number of tables already
13:07 brendan_ that’s true
13:08 brendan_ I’ve liked the angular stuff for awhile now
13:08 ashimema angular is awesome.. i'm using it in another app and it's a pleasure to work with..
13:08 ashimema quite a change of coding style though..
13:09 alvet joined #koha
13:09 ashimema well i'll keep working on this proof of concept for now..
13:09 ashimema we're adding Inter Library Loans (currently only for the british library api, but it should be adaptable to any other api's relatively easily, if any exist that is ;) )
13:09 jcamins marcelr: sure!
13:10 marcelr thx
13:13 brendan_ nice ashimema

13:16 quocuy Hi eveyone
13:17 quocuy anyone is here?
13:17 oleonard khall around?
13:17 quocuy Can i ask one question?
13:17 quocuy Olenard
13:18 oleonard quocuy: You can always ask a question. If someone knows the answer they may give it to you.
13:18 quocuy I added a slider to Koha header. It works fine in theme PROG, but when i changed to boostrap, it does not work
13:18 quocuy demo here: and
13:21 quocuy So how can i make this slider work in boostrap theme? Is it an issue with css?
13:24 oleonard Sorry quocuy I don't know
13:24 oleonard I would recommend testing with a configuration which didn't have any other JavaScript or CSS customizations so that you can confirm the error is just with the slider
13:25 oleonard I think you may be having problems because of duplicate jQuery libraries, but I'm not sure why it works in the prog theme but not the Bootstrap theme
13:25 quocuy yeah
13:26 quocuy let me make some searches on google
13:26 * jcamins would offer the following advice to those people who want to work with developers and librarians: don't screw up your attribution statement for iconic xkcd comics.
13:27 cma joined #koha
13:32 oleonard You gonna name and shame jcamins?
13:32 jcamins oleonard: IBM.
13:33 ashimema is pianohacker likely to be around any time soon?
13:33 jcamins In a marketing presentation, they credit the "Compiling!" comic to someone I'd never heard of.

13:38 Joubu Hi khall ;)
13:38 khall good day Joubu!
13:38 tcohen joined #koha
13:38 khall hey'ya tcohen!
13:39 khall Joubu: You should take another look at bug 13019 again. I've implemented pretty much all your suggestions
13:39 huginn Bug[…]_bug.cgi?id=13019 enhancement, P5 - low, ---, kyle, Needs Signoff , Add base classes on which to build Koha objects
13:39 khall tcohen: I'd love to get your input as well
13:39 khall I think this is more the route you wanted to see us take.
13:40 Joubu khall: yep, I saw it! I cannot promise you to have a look soon, but I will try!
13:41 khall thanks! whenever you can find the time! I know time is hard to find ; )
13:43 jcamins khall: I glanced at that bug report, and I couldn't quite figure out what the benefit of an overly complex inheritance hierarchy was based on the report. Do you think you could clarify why a Koha::Object class is necessary?
13:44 cait joined #koha
13:44 quocuy Hi cait
13:44 khall jcamins: the idea to start with is to encapsulate dbic while retaining a standard OO model. There are many other benefits that I should really be writing down. Here's a good one:
13:45 paul_p khall = Joubu & tcohen presenting sandboxes to argentinian librarians. Should be back in half an hour or so
13:45 alvet joined #koha
13:45 khall 1) By having something to inherit from we can have a standard set of methods that will always work the same no matter what type of object you are working with
13:47 khall 2) This is a way to fix our schema over time. Think of biblio/biblioitems. Imagine the size of the patch needed to fix this in one fell swoop. We can hide our broken schema by having Koha::Biblio act as both. Once all the code uses Koha::Biblio objects, we can fix the schema and update one file
13:49 khall 3) We can provide simple easy linkages. Need a patrons checkouts? Need a Biblio's items? This is easy with this model and avoids using DBIC in pl files. Everything is encapsulated nicely. We could tear out DBIC and replace it with something else and the calling code would be none the wiser
13:50 jcamins Right... I'm not seeing how Koha::Object provides this any more than a set of coding guidelines would?
13:52 khall Where in the guidelines do we have anything about how to add modules or how methods should work? Instead of the need for documentation that everyone may or may not remember to check, by having something to use as a base we get that automatically.
13:53 jcamins We don't at the moment, but we could.
13:54 khall If perl5 had interfaces, that would be another alternative, but why should we reinvent the wheel every time we need a new class?
13:55 cait ashimema: around?
13:55 ashimema am now
13:56 khall Right now our module subroutines try to do way to much all at once, this leads to bugs. I see this as a model for building much simpler, more stable, less bug prone and more easily tested code.
13:56 jcamins What's making me dubious is the fact that you have to use an additional AUTOLOAD in order to get the functionality you want, instead of being able to just use the already-provided bits from DBIC.
13:56 cait i am trying to finish shibboleth - care to give me a push? :)
13:56 jcamins It seems like any functionality beyond what DBIC already offers would have to be implemented on each class anyway?
13:57 khall jcamins: we *could* just use what DBIC has. I'm not against that, but I added the autoload specifically so we could hide the dbic stuff. We don't want to have a method returning dbic stuff.
13:57 ashimema paul_p.. wicked that sandboxes are coming up..
13:57 khall with the idea that dbic in pl is verboten
13:57 ashimema also glad to have been able to start contributing to them.
13:58 tcohen morrrrning
13:59 tcohen hi jcamins ashimema
13:59 tcohen missing you here
13:59 jcamins khall: okay, so the idea with Koha::Object is explicitly that it's reimplementing the DBIC functionality. I was thinking that I was misunderstanding something since that's what I thought it was doing.
13:59 jcamins Thanks.
13:59 khall jcamins: yes. The issue at had is "can we use dbic from pl scripts". I've written two proofs on concept for bug 12892, one using DBIC and one using encapsulation.

14:04 carmenh joined #koha
14:06 khall jcamins: another huge benefit is if our code passes objects around instead of table id's we'll reduce our db access greatly
14:09 oleonard khall: Have you ever tried applying one of our custom sort algorithms to a server-side DataTable?
14:09 ashimema I'm working on some proof of concept code using khall objects too jcamins..
14:09 ashimema happy to share once there's som more meat on their bones.
14:09 * oleonard is trying to make it work without success
14:10 khall oleonard: I don't think I have. Any idea's on how to mesh the two? I'm thinking we need to pass the sorting algorithm to the server-side service
14:10 khall or have dual implementations one in perl, one in js
14:11 khall or even better, move to only ajax datatables ; )
14:12 ashimema I think for serverside datatables the sort will also need to be done serverside.
14:12 ashimema that's my understanding when i last looked at least.
14:12 rangi tcohen: are the students who found the bugs with the display of titles here?
14:12 tcohen don't think so
14:12 khall yep. I bet there's a way to slurp all the data via ajax and have paging/sorting all done client side, but that'd way less efficient
14:12 tcohen need to ask the women talking
14:15 oleonard khall and ashimema, when you say serverside sort you mean the MySQL query itself?
14:15 khall yep
14:15 ashimema well.. sorta.. depends how the serverside stuff works already..
14:15 khall or from the perl code
14:15 ashimema what he just said..
14:16 oleonard That's not going to work if we want to continue to be able to use a custom array of articles to ignore when sorting by title
14:16 NateC joined #koha
14:16 rocio joined #koha
14:16 khall oleonard: we should be able to implement that in perl
14:16 ashimema I've seen datatables where they slurp the whole datastrcuture from the database in one hit.. then sorts, paging etc are all done in memory on the datastructure in perl.
14:17 ashimema but then i've also seen serverside datatables that just convert datatables requests to the corresponding mysql query and return that..
14:17 khall yep. It'd be best to do it at the db level if possible
14:17 ashimema it works both ways.. if you have the memory, then the code way is usually faster.
14:17 ashimema at lest in my testing a while back it was.
14:18 tcohen rangi: did they ask you to do the haka thing for the interview?
14:18 rangi hehe no
14:18 tcohen heh, pity
14:18 oleonard Well, I'm disappointed that a sorting feature which was working before is broken now :(
14:19 khall ashimema: that's good to know
14:19 ashimema which table oleanard
14:19 ashimema which table oleonard
14:19 khall checkouts table perhaps?
14:19 oleonard circulation, moremember, and manage-marc-import
14:20 oleonard Okay manage-marc-import wasn't sorted before so not that one
14:20 oleonard But I /want/ it to work there :)
14:20 khall I think we can come up with something!
14:20 ashimema indeed..
14:20 khall Have you filed a bug report yet?
14:21 ashimema I shouldn't be too hard to impliment it using sql

15:05 ashimema awesome!
15:05 wahanui That'll be $1 for the awesome jar, ashimema
15:06 ashimema oleonard.. did you already work on fixing this DataTables stuff..
15:06 ashimema I'm really confused.. as 'everything' is handled clientside with these tables..
15:06 ashimema the ajax call is only there to allow delaying load/asynchronous loading of the table data itself..
15:07 oleonard ashimema: I tried without success to get a custom sorting alogrithm to work with an AJAX datatable. I asked khall about it in case he knew whether or not it was possible.
15:07 ashimema sorting, paging etc are all being left to clientside and the entire dataset is being loaded in one hit.. so surely it 'should' still work out of the box.?
15:07 ashimema I was assuming that the sorting was 'already' hitting the server..
15:07 Tom joined #koha
15:08 ashimema the 'real' point of serverside Datatables is to allow for 'hard work' to be done serverside..
15:08 ashimema we're not actaully doing that.
15:08 oleonard ashimema: For instance, I tried adding this to the configuration of the manage-marc-import DataTables initialization:
15:08 oleonard "aaSorting": [[1,'asc']], "aoColumnDefs": [ { "sType": "anti-the", "aTargets": [ 1 ] } ]
15:08 * cait1 reports login and logout are still working too
15:08 carmenh joined #koha
15:09 ashimema k.. I'll continue to play then..
15:09 ashimema but this is less trivial than i initially thought..
15:09 ashimema thanks oleonard
15:09 oleonard ashimema: The "aaSorting" config option works--the correct column is sorted. But the
15:09 oleonard "anti-the" algorithm is not used.
15:09 brendan_ joined #koha
15:09 ashimema how very strange..
15:10 ashimema I almost wonder if that's a bug in datatables..
15:10 ashimema automatically disabling such stuff when the useAjax is present.
15:13 cait1 actually i found a bug ashimema:P
15:13 cait1 Shibboleth Login <<

15:13 ashimema huh
15:13 rangi if there is a bug, cait1 will find it, thats why we keep reelecting her :)
15:14 pablito joined #koha
15:14 pablito hi everyone
15:14 cait1 maybe you ljust like to keep me busy so i don't start causing trouble elsewhere
15:14 cait1 ashimema: can i just add that to the last patch?
15:14 pablito hi cait1 :-)
15:14 ashimema sure..
15:15 ashimema thanks.
15:15 rangi tcohen: can you have a look at the last comment on bug 12005

15:15 rangi please
15:15 rangi and Joubu too, id just like some opinions
15:15 tcohen of course :-D
15:15 cait1 ashimema: hopefully going to pass it today, don't worry :)
15:16 * ashimema does the happy dance
15:16 cait1 we got the wiki page for installation insturctions, right?
15:16 ashimema i beleive we wrote one yeah..
15:16 cait1 lol
15:17 pablito can someone help me with an issue with automatic barcode generation?
15:17 pablito I am importing records into koha and I would like Koha to auto-generate a barcode for each record.  Is this possible in 3.16?
15:19 brendan_ hmm not during the import
15:19 pablito brendan_, how would auto generate the barcodes after the import?
15:20 pablito *I
15:20 brendan_ add an item to it and then the barcode should autogenerate the next available barcode - but then you’d have to do that for every single record you imported
15:20 rangi thank you tcohen
15:21 cait1 ashimema: should the tests pass on a random install without shib config?
15:21 brendan_ pablito: I think khall may have written a plugin for that awhile ago
15:21 ashimema erm... i believe so..
15:21 ashimema which one is failing?
15:21 brendan_ but otherwise you’ll have to do that barcode work outside of koha - try marcedit
15:21 brendan_ MARCedit
15:21 wahanui rumour has it MARCedit is a tool for editing MARC records. It can also convert spreadsheets to MARC. See[…]it/html/index.php
15:21 cait1 waiting for the suite to finihs, sec
15:22 ashimema oleonard.. I just added '"sType": "anti-the"' to checkouts.js and it's working perfectly for me..
15:23 khall oleonard: I'm finding the marc preview in is broken in master, have you seen that at all?
15:23 pablito I have done it via MarcEdit before, though it would be a great feature if Koha can do it at import
15:24 pablito ok, thank you, brendan_
15:25 pablito also, is there a way to find the latest generated barcode?
15:26 oleonard ashimema: Okay, I didn't try modifying that one.
15:26 pablito I can use this latest barcode as the starting point for the following codes
15:26 oleonard Am I correct that if you pass C4::Branch::GetBranches a branch code it will return only your logged-in branch?
15:28 ashimema not trying to prove you wrong or anything oleonard.. I woudln't be surprised if this is an issue elsewhere that I've not spotted yet..
15:28 ashimema I would almost put money on it in fact..
15:28 ashimema but I can't repeat it yet..
15:28 ashimema I'll take a look at the other tables.. see if I can find any issues in them..

15:44 ashimema well spotted cait.. my tests do indeed fail now..
15:44 ashimema thuogh in fact it's a failure due to the test mocking rather than a 'real' failure.
15:44 ashimema :(

16:53 ashimema cool..
16:54 ashimema I'll have a play with manage-marc-import later this evening.. unless your going to khall
16:54 * ashimema has to eat first though ;)
16:54 khall oleonard: I think getting it to work for manage-marc-import will be more up ashimema's alley. It'll require doing what we thought we'd need to do for the checkouts table
16:55 khall I'm crushed for time atm or i'd do it
16:55 khall we should be able to an anti-the sort routine in perl at the very least
16:55 ashimema indeed..
16:55 ashimema k, i'll take a punt
16:56 ashimema foooood...
16:57 khall heh, oleonard ping me when you sign 13054, though saying I'll qa it barely means anything for a one liner ; )
16:58 ashimema I was thinking I'd probably fix manage-marc-imports under the same bug khall ;)
16:58 khall ahh, that's fine by me!
16:58 ashimema give you somthing more concrete to qa ;)
16:59 khall heh, thanks ; )
16:59 oleonard ashimema: If your fix is client-side then we should create a new bug for it, perhaps even closing 13054 as invalid
17:00 ashimema indeed, your bug is about serverside.. just the example in the bug istelf is bad as that's a clientside one ;)

17:39 martian523 another question.  my library consists or chinese titles, after upgrading to 3.14, there's a problem when doing a search with chinese characters
17:39 oleonard martian523: It was considered fixed in 3.10.11.
17:41 martian523 this problem is i  would have to put a space in between each chinese character in order for koha to search it as a string, this problem didn't exist before the upgrade

18:20 n Hello there, I am trying out Koha for a small scale non- circulating library. and at the moment I am just evaluating using equinox's Demo, but I have a question about how best to create a record structure for books that are (OV)er sized or (mini) format. Are item types my best bet?
18:20 wnickc I either cannot recreate the bug or can't get the fix to work, I hate losing to the computer, but thanks oleonard
18:22 jcamins n: I use shelving location for that usually.
18:23 n Ok, so when patrons use OPAC and get a hit on something that is OV they just go to the location that has books of similar size?
18:24 jcamins Right. And ideally the shelf is marked with a sign or something so they know where the shelving location is.

18:30 paul_p I'm trying to update a GRS-1 zebra to a DOM one. I think I've changed most of the instances of *-grs-* in config files, but get the following error :
18:30 paul_p 20:28:38-09/10 zebrasrv(1) [log] Unknown esetname 'marcxml'
18:30 paul_p 20:28:38-09/10 zebrasrv(1) [request] Present OK -   1 1+1
18:30 paul_p any hint welcomed ...
18:31 jcamins I think that indicates an inconsistency between koha-conf.xml and another file. gmcharlt may know off the top of his head which.
18:32 jcamins Pointing to one file that still has GRS-y things and one that has DOM-y.
18:32 gmcharlt retrieval-info-bib-*
18:34 paul_p gmcharlt koha-conf.xml is koha-conf.xml:    <xi:include href="/home/paul/​marc/etc/zebradb/retrieval-info-bib-dom.xml"
18:36 n Thanks jcamins! While I'm asking, are there any OPAC configurations that would better reflect a Non-Circulating Library?
18:37 gmcharlt paul_p: and koha-conf.xml also has references to etc/zebradb/zebra-biblios-dom.cfg?
18:37 paul_p gmcharlt checking
18:38 jcamins n: some of my non-circulating libraries use javascript to change "Copies available for loan" to "Copies available" on the OPAC.

19:56 huginn Bug[…]_bug.cgi?id=12892 major, P5 - low, ---, kyle, Signed Off , Holds Waiting: not showing from check out screen
19:57 bag I’ve gotten some stuff down on paper about our ideas from a quick breakout session
19:57 bag caser with the packages - it’s harder to apply a patch.  usually I think the asnwer that most will give you - is to roll your own package
19:58 bag or you could maybe just hard-edit the actual code and then the next time you upgrade your package it will get overwritten (I’m not sure - that’s the best way to do it though)
19:59 caser yeah, we were trying to avoid hard editing. I suppose another option is waiting until it hits the Debian package, right?
20:01 bag yes that’s another option
20:08 BobB joined #koha
