07:39 Joubu marcelr: Use of uninitialized value in string eq at /kohadevbox/koha/C4/ line 784.
07:39 Joubu is this new?
07:39 Joubu wondering if it's not coming from the Auth changes
07:43 marcelr 784 let me check
07:44 marcelr yes it might be related; see also bug 29954
07:44 huginn Bug https://bugs.koha-community.or[…]_bug.cgi?id=29954 is not accessible.
07:44 marcelr time for that one ?
07:45 marcelr it could be removed from secu, i guess

09:10 severine_q hi all !
09:10 dcook salut severine_q
09:10 dcook Long time not see :)
09:11 dcook maybe I should get up earlier before work to do Kohaing..
09:12 severine_q hello dcook !
09:12 severine_q indeed...
09:13 severine_q I had planty things to do and forgot a little about Koha-community
09:13 severine_q but luckily Hackfest in Marseille last week make me realize how much I miss you all :D
09:16 cait1 we missed you too, severine_q :)
09:22 tcohen hi all
09:23 severine_q you're so kind cait1 !
09:23 severine_q hi @tcohen !
09:24 tcohen hi severine_q ! one more day in your tz :-D
09:26 dcook aww
09:27 dcook One day I'll make it to Marseille..
09:29 eythian dcook: you should swing by Amsterdam on the way
09:29 dcook eythian: I have a friend whose bf lives in Amsterdam and I keep hearing how it's the best
09:30 eythian there you go, no excuses
09:30 tcohen hi eythian !
09:32 eythian hello tcohen!
09:33 cait1 severine_q: just the truth, and it's great to have more librarians arond here
09:35 * oleonard waves to dcook's ship passing him in the night
09:35 * dcook waves to oleonard
09:35 dcook Just looking through Bugzilla at all the patches I'd like to work on but don't have the energy for heh
09:35 dcook Figuring out what parts of Koha I need to refactor before I can move on with the new stuff too..
09:36 dcook Speaking of... oleonard.. I've started using WRAPPER in some of my local customizations
09:36 dcook At some point, I hope to come up with something to add to Bugzilla..
09:36 oleonard Yeah, I'd love to see a good example of how we can use it in Koha
09:37 dcook Do you know of part of the OPAC which might be less risky to experiment on? Heh
09:37 dcook Right now, I use the wrapper on 3 local pages that don't exist in real Koha..
09:38 dcook Actually... maybe that Library page..
09:39 oleonard dcook: Yeah I'd pick the simplest example, that's a good candidate.
09:39 dcook Ok, I'll make a note of that. The wrapper isn't 100% perfect yet, but I think it should be able to take care of that page quite easily..
09:44 dcook Ohh I could use check_cookie_auth() for some of my devs... good job Jonathan on improving it
09:44 dcook Joubu++
09:45 alex_ joined #koha
09:46 dcook Okies really going for real
09:46 dcook night all

09:53 tcohen :-D
09:53 tcohen https://bugs.koha-community.or[…]g.cgi?id=30465#c2
09:53 huginn Bug 30465: enhancement, P5 - low, ---, jonathan.druart+koha, Needs Signoff , BatchUpdateBiblio task does not deal with indexation correctly
09:53 tcohen can you write one sentence explaining your comment
09:54 tcohen so we work for the rest of the day on that :-P
09:59 cait joined #koha
10:15 khall_ joined #koha
10:38 dcook tcohen: Haha. Luckily I just got home and decided to pop back on here
10:38 tcohen hahhaa
10:38 tcohen great
10:39 dcook I thought about it more today and I guess it doesn't matter much
10:39 tcohen Joubu is not online
10:39 dcook I'll add a comment on there (y)
10:39 tcohen but I'm not sure about the real need to make indexing part of the batch task...
10:39 dcook Oh I think it's a good idea esp for ES
10:39 dcook That said, i haven't followed the ES stuff
10:39 tcohen I feel like queueing the index task is.... alright-ish, given that it will be handled by a separate (real-time) worker
10:40 dcook Which reminds me I was going to note down to try ES with Koha..
10:40 dcook What's the real-time worker for the indexing/
10:40 dcook ?*
10:40 tcohen you need to stop smoking that
10:40 tcohen haha
10:40 tcohen we've been talking about that all week (hackfest)
10:41 tcohen real-time vs. turtle
10:41 dcook Ohhh nvm
10:41 dcook I think I gotcha
10:41 tcohen so
10:41 tcohen the bug is about defering the indexing (i.e. queueing) when someone calls ModBiblio and friends
10:41 dcook yeah that was my understanding
10:42 dcook Which would make sense when using the message queue
10:42 dcook Less so with the zebraqueue I think..
10:42 tcohen and then Joubu believes the batch task should call indexing at each step
10:42 tcohen to avoid queeing things...
10:42 dcook Hmm I don't follow
10:42 dcook Which step?
10:42 wahanui Which step are you at?
10:43 tcohen on bug 30465 Joubu adds a 'do not queue indexing' flag to modBiblio, so the indexing stuff is handled in the caller (i.e. the background job code)
10:43 huginn Bug https://bugs.koha-community.or[…]_bug.cgi?id=30465 enhancement, P5 - low, ---, jonathan.druart+koha, Needs Signoff , BatchUpdateBiblio task does not deal with indexation correctly
10:44 dcook yeah I see the merit of that too
10:44 dcook Update the biblios, and then pass all the IDs through RabbitMQ
10:44 dcook Although only if the worker fetches those biblios in batches from the DB (to reduce DB calls)
10:44 tcohen bug 27783 is the one adding the queues and separate workers
10:44 huginn Bug https://bugs.koha-community.or[…]_bug.cgi?id=27783 enhancement, P5 - low, ---, martin.renvoize, Signed Off , Introduce background job queues
10:44 dcook Otherwise if it's just going to do 1 DB call per record it's kind of pointless..
10:44 * dcook buries his head in the sand again and runs away
10:44 dcook hehe
10:45 tcohen well, ->index_records only gets an id, doesn't it?
10:45 tcohen ah
10:45 dcook I haven't looked in deeply enough. i was just thinking conceptually
10:45 tcohen it makes sense, nevermind :-D
10:46 tcohen and we should move the zebra counterpart too
10:46 tcohen and get rid of koha-indexer
10:46 tcohen are you volunteering dcook?
10:46 dcook Not even a little bit haha
10:47 dcook Had a talk with the boss earlier and I think we're going to start trying ES with Koha, since that's where most of the work seems to be these days
10:48 dcook I am feeling inspired tonight though, so thinking of revisiting some of the projects I've shelved for a while
10:48 tcohen enjoy
10:48 dcook Also going to try implementing them locally first so that we can work out the bugs before I try upstreaming them. Going to see how well that works in practice :|
10:48 dcook Well it's 8:48pm and i haven't eaten dinner yet :|
10:48 dcook last morning in marseille, tcohen/
10:48 tcohen well
10:48 tcohen Madrid :-D
10:48 dcook Wee :D
10:49 dcook Is that where Joubu is these days?
10:49 tcohen I fly tomorrow
10:49 tcohen Naw, he's in france
10:49 dcook It's already tomorrow here :D
10:49 tcohen :-P
10:49 * tcohen is the one that needs sleep it seems
10:49 dcook Or wait.. maybe it's just late today..
10:49 dcook Mee too
10:50 dcook Going to see if I can quickly put together a patch for oleonard to show off this WRAPPER thing..
10:50 * tcohen puts the g&t aside
10:50 dcook Mmm g&t..
10:50 dcook I just have iced tea..
10:50 dcook A fridge full of beer though..
10:50 tcohen that's eythian team
10:51 tcohen @later tell fridolin we need to thank batman for saving us on this release
10:51 huginn tcohen: The operation succeeded.
10:52 tcohen mtj: is the exp stuff already in dev?
10:52 tcohen I think we forgot to update ktd
10:53 dcook Must be super late for mtj now :/
10:53 dcook What's the day got in store for you tcohen/
10:53 dcook TFW you write git commands into your IRC window..
10:54 tcohen further complicating holds, then work on a big ILL plugin, then OAuth2
10:55 dcook No rest for the wicked, eh/
10:57 AndrewFH joined #koha
10:59 tcohen I'm doing good, heh
10:59 dcook bug 30289
10:59 huginn Bug https://bugs.koha-community.or[…]_bug.cgi?id=30289 enhancement, P5 - low, ---, oleonard, NEW , Use Template::Toolkit WRAPPER to reduce template boilerplate
11:00 dcook Should have something for this soon...
11:00 oleonard Cool
11:01 dcook In terms of minutes hopefully hehe
11:01 dcook I figured I'd share the wrapper i'm using locally and update to use it. should be straight-forward enough..
11:05 eythian tcohen: in fact, I have too much beer in my fridge so if you're offering to help me with this, you're welcome
11:05 * tcohen needs to visit the netherlands..................
11:06 dcook eythian: I know that feeling...
11:06 dcook I want to buy more but need to drink what's already in there first..
11:07 eythian yes, even my overflow place for "stuff that can get away without being in the fridge right now" is getting full
11:13 tcohen dcook: you should look at Joubu's bugs introducing Vue3 :-D
11:13 dcook tcohen: I really want to haha
11:13 dcook I don't know how y'all do it..
11:14 mtj hey peeps, i have having a late nite koha/beer session myself
11:14 mtj tcohen: ill fix the exp package thing now
11:16 dcook mtj: Nice one
11:16 * dcook loves the feeling of pressing enter and getting a template parser error
11:16 dcook It's like.. you know it would be too good to work without at least one
11:18 dcook Hyphen instead of an underscore. Oops..
11:27 dcook oleonard: All done!
11:27 dcook It's not perfect. I need to improve the <title> and breadcrumbs. You'll probably also have ideas about better Bootstrap classes to use for positioning the columns.
11:28 dcook Hopefully it demonstrates the core idea though
11:29 dcook That's the wrapper I'm using locally for custom pages, so it hasn't really been too battle tested yet
11:29 oleonard Thanks dcook I'll take a look today
11:29 dcook Awesome :)
11:33 dcook Really appreciate it, oleonard :)
11:41 dcook tcohen: That wrapper bug could be useful for plugins as well actually. That was one of the uses I was thinking about back in 2020 for it..
11:44 tcohen yeah, it looks promising
11:45 dcook All it took was me skipping dinner and working extra late heh. I do want to look at Joubu's Vue3 stuff although tonight I think is food..
11:45 dcook Well actually..
11:45 dcook tcohen: You don't have a bug number off the top of your head do you?
11:46 dcook bug 30225

11:47 dcook Ohh..
11:51 Joubu dcook: and
11:53 dcook Yeah all right haha
11:53 dcook Usually I'd be dead after muay thai by now but hurt my foot, neck, and shoulder, so here we are..
11:53 dcook Actually any preference on which one?
11:53 dcook Just about to do 30225 now..
11:56 dcook Hmm not working. Wonder what I did wrong..
11:59 Joubu ran `yarn build_js`?
11:59 dcook That would do it
11:59 dcook I just did "yarn install"
12:00 dcook Noticed the JS was missing and figured there must be anothe rstep
12:00 dcook Interesting that Asset.js seems to discard non-existent files..
12:01 dcook Much better. Cheers.

17:25 michal hey yall, i'm having trouble with the koha testing docker installation, i have a windows machine and part of the installation says I have to access my .profile file, but when I do so, and put in the proper variables, running docker compose says that it can't find the variables i give.
17:26 michal what can i do about that, I can send my error message in here as well
17:28 khall_ joined #koha
17:29 oleonard michal: Let me pull out my Windows laptop and see if I can remember how I did it...
17:30 michal okay sounds good
17:33 oleonard michal: I have a .bashrc file in the root of my koha-testing-docker directory with some "export" statements
17:35 pastebot "oleonard" at pasted "koha-testing-docker .bashrc" (5 lines) at
17:35 michal so it's supposed to be in the ../../koha-testing-docker directory
17:35 michal the one i cloned with git
17:37 oleonard You're providing environment variables for that docker instance, so it has to go there (is my understanding)
17:37 michal okay gotchu, i'll try that
17:55 michal it's still giving me the same error as before, I made the .bashrc and put the correct directories for my system
17:56 michal i have class so i'll be back in a bit, but i'll keep trying to figure out what to do
18:07 theminh joined #koha
18:10 michal joined #koha
18:28 michal okay so new error, it says that the variables CPAN and COVERAGE are missing, I'm not sure how to find those variables
18:29 michal do I have to add them in like SYNC_REPO
18:31 tuxayo michal: Did you close and open you terminal/console? Because .bashrc is loaded only once
18:31 michal yes i closed and opened the terminal, but i did source .bashrc
18:32 tuxayo hum, it should be good, too times good even!
18:32 tuxayo *two times
18:33 tuxayo oleonard: did you have weird stuff with ktd on Windows? At the hackfest, we tried on 3 machines I think and gave up on recommending that. In favor of a Linux VM. Like one of the was execution permission missing and git status outputs all the file. Thus making it unusable.
18:34 tuxayo We circumvented telling git to not display changes in permissions. It might bite us back.
18:34 tuxayo And also file performance was terrible from inside the container so git checkout was unusable. qa tools also. git bz was terrible but bearable.
18:35 tuxayo michal: what is the exact error?
18:35 tuxayo I have
18:35 tuxayo WARN[0000] The "COVERAGE" variable is not set. Defaulting to a blank string.
18:35 tuxayo WARN[0000] The "CPAN" variable is not set. Defaulting to a blank string.
18:36 michal time="2022-04-07T14:25:23-04:00" level=warning msg="The \"CPAN\" variable is not set. Defaulting to a blank string."
18:36 michal time="2022-04-07T14:25:23-04:00" level=warning msg="The \"COVERAGE\" variable is not set. Defaulting to a blank string."
18:36 michal also this
18:36 tuxayo It's normal, when running on a personal machine context.
18:36 michal error during connect: This error may indicate that the docker daemon is not running.: Get "http://%2F%2F.%2Fpipe%2Fdocker_engine/v​1.24/containers/json?all=1&filters=%7B%2​​ject%3Dkoha%22%3Atrue%7D%7D&limit=0": open //./pipe/docker_engine: The system cannot find
18:36 michal the file specified.
18:39 michal oh okay so running ku works
18:39 tuxayo michal: oh. We might have had something similar at hackfest. In the docker UI, we could confirm that docker daemon is not running. And we couldn't get it running. We gave up, it seemed to be that the windows version didn't actually have the necessary stuff to run docker. Maybe. Could be that the person didn't have enough admin privilege to enable/install everything.
18:40 tuxayo > oh okay so running ku works
18:40 tuxayo oh :o
18:40 tuxayo What did you try to run before?
18:40 michal ku but i think it didn't work because I didn't have SYNC_REPO, etc. in the .bashrc
18:40 michal but now it's working despite the other warnings
18:42 tuxayo > ku but i think it didn't work because I didn't have SYNC_REPO, etc. in the .bashrc
18:42 tuxayo Indeed!
18:43 tuxayo > but now it's working despite the other warnings
18:43 tuxayo Don't worry about COVERAGE and CPAN. It's for our server (continuous integration) that automatically runs koha-testing-docker and runs automated tests.
18:44 AndrewFH joined #koha
18:50 michal when I run ku now, it exits koha-es-1, and going to localhost:8080 gives me a 404
18:51 tuxayo michal: when closing ktd, you must run "kd" for some cleanup
18:59 tuxayo @later tell cait1 I found something suspicious on 29271
18:59 huginn tuxayo: The operation succeeded.
19:00 tuxayo michal: Wasn't koha-es-1 already exiting before? Due to this:[…]elasticsearch-run
19:09 michal im not sure, there doesn't say anything for windows with elasticsearch and since the first time I ran ku, it's been exiting koha-es-1
19:11 tuxayo michal: «there doesn't say anything for windows with elasticsearch» documentation doesn't cover that.
19:12 tuxayo michal: «since the first time I ran ku, it's been exiting koha-es-1» ok, that makes sence
19:13 michal in the tutorial video, they ran ku and they were then able to go to localhost:8080
19:13 tuxayo which one?
19:13 wahanui i guess which one is that
19:13 michal[…]ha-testing-docker
19:14 tuxayo If you find a way to have vm.max_map_count right, then you can have ElasticSearch working. Otherwise if you want ES, you will have to use a virtual machine to avoid all the unexpected mess/
19:14 tuxayo *mess.
19:15 tuxayo michal: ok, it's not Windows.
19:16 tuxayo They might have missed vm.max_map_count because that something you only do once and if you don't undo it or reinstall your computer then it will be okay.
19:17 michal hm, so do i need ElasticSearch in order for me to access the localhost:8080
19:18 tuxayo No
19:19 tuxayo michal: anyway unless you have experience with making koha-testing-docker work on Linux or macOS I recommend you to not try *directly* on Windows. Because it's uncharted territory and last week we tried and found issues that we can't solve
19:20 michal I have wsl2, should i switch to that
19:20 tuxayo michal: docker actually uses that.
19:21 tuxayo But for more complex stuff we hit many weird issues. It's not yet 100% a Linux
19:21 tuxayo So my recommendation is to install VirtualBox, download an iso file of your favorite Linux. (Linux Mint XFCE or Xubuntu if you don't have a favorite) And then the instruction at[…]ha-testing-docker should apply well. As well as you video tutorial. (I don't know if macOS changes much stuff)
19:23 michal is there a reason why those two specific linux distros?
19:24 tuxayo michal: user friendly and an interface that doesn't use much RAM compared to other ones.
19:27 michal gotchu, i'll try doing that
19:28 reiveune left #koha
19:30 michal imma go with mint cuz i like the green
19:30 tuxayo he he
19:32 tuxayo And I recommend Linux Mint before Xubuntu (Xubuntu is based on Ubuntu) because Ubuntu pushes for some technical thing to distribute software called "snap packages" in which part of tooling is not libre software.
19:33 tuxayo Every Linux user has different preferences and reasons to recommend Linux distributions. Don't worry about it until you have software politics (like preferring Koha against other non-libre ILS) and technical preferences.
19:33 tuxayo It's still user friendly Linux distributions that people recommend to new users.
19:33 tuxayo It's like people with car recommendations. Like about repairability and technical preferences. It's still a car.
19:35 tuxayo > gotchu, i'll try doing that
19:35 tuxayo great, because is basically a miracle that now Windows can make ktd partially work. Maybe in the future but in the meantime it makes it harder for you and make it harder to get help.
19:37 tuxayo michal: About the virtual machine: give 70GiB at least of storage to the virtual machine (VM) when asked. (it doesn't take them from the host system until it's actually used, so zero waster). Try to give at leave 4GiB of ram to the VM.
19:37 tuxayo How much do you have on your system?
20:15 dpk__ joined #koha
21:24 michal joined #koha
22:05 michal i set up my virtual machine now, im working on installing docker and then koha
22:07 michal i see what you mean about car preferences, i don't think i'll ever use enough different linux distros to get a feel for what is good
22:08 michal maybe one day when i get adept enough i'll be a master linux hax0r
22:22 tuxayo michal:  Â« i don't think i'll ever use enough different linux distros to get a feel for what is good»
22:22 tuxayo Don't worry ^^
22:23 tuxayo > a master linux hax0r
22:23 tuxayo A lot of it is messing with stuff like koha-testing-docker :P
23:06 dcook FYI I use ktd on Windows ;)
23:06 dcook Well...
23:06 dcook It uses Docker Desktop on Windows
23:07 dcook michal: I do use a custom docker-compose.yml file to make it work and instead of using a git based on my Windows system I use a named volume within the Docker so that the git lives in Linux from the start
23:18 michal joined #koha
23:21 tuxayo dcook: good to know! :)
23:23 tuxayo dcook: Anything else we should change beside the docker-compose.yml to make a better experience for people that are on Windows?
23:23 tuxayo Is IO perf ok? For git checkout for example
23:23 dcook Using the named volume is a big one
23:24 dcook Not just because of I/O but also for things like ownership, file mode permissions, etc
23:24 dcook line endings
23:24 tuxayo Do you have ES running?
23:24 dcook I think the container is running but I've never used it
23:24 dcook Reminds me to make a note to try it out...
23:24 tuxayo > Using the named volume is a big one
23:24 tuxayo > Not just because of I/O but also for things like ownership, file mode permissions, etc
23:24 tuxayo Oh, that's great!
23:24 dcook Of course using a named volume can be dicey
23:25 dcook You can accidentally nuke your git by doing a "docker volume prune". Guess how I know that... ;)
23:25 tuxayo > I think the container is running but I've never used it
23:25 tuxayo If it didn't crash then it's ok (about vm.max_map_count). What did you have to do about it?
23:26 dcook Actually, you know what, more recently I've removed the ES container from my docker-compose.yml because I wasn't using it and figured it was a waste of m y resources lol
23:26 tuxayo > You can accidentally nuke your git by doing a "docker volume prune". Guess how I know that... ;)
23:26 tuxayo Oh, right.
23:26 dcook As for vm.max_map_count, I haven't had to do anything
23:26 dcook But regarding docker volumes, I scripted my own backup to regularly backup my Docker volumes. Not something your average user might do though..
23:27 dcook What else..
23:27 tuxayo That is weird. For michal is crashed because of that and at the hackfest. At least two people had that issue and I suppose nobody else on Windows had that working.
23:27 dcook I remove the "restart: always" from docker-compose.yml because that really doesn't make sense for a developer..
23:27 dcook tuxayo: Let me check my Docker Desktop settings
23:28 tuxayo > restart: always
23:28 tuxayo What does it do?
23:28 tuxayo > Let me check my Docker Desktop settings
23:28 tuxayo Ah maybe there
23:28 dcook tuxayo: That makes your Docker containers start at startup time
23:28 dcook Hmm I use 5GB of RAM for Docker Desktop
23:28 dcook 2 CPU, 2GB swap (probably the default)
23:29 dcook But yeah nah I haven't had ES crash
23:29 dcook At least not recently
23:29 dcook I get rid of the "SYNC_REPO" line and use my named volume instead...
23:29 dcook I get rid of the kohanet aliases as I think those have caused crashes for me..
23:31 tuxayo For vm.max_map_count, maybe it's someone configured like this:
23:31 tuxayo[…]62078093#62078093
23:35 dcook Hmm I doubt it
23:35 dcook But I suppose you never know..
23:35 dcook It could be that I did it years ago and forgot about it
23:35 dcook I could check one more place..
23:36 dcook You know..
23:36 tuxayo Could be.
23:36 tuxayo This can tell the value to confirm that it's not too low. It would be very weird to have ES start with the low value but we never know.
23:36 tuxayo sysctl vm.max_map_count
23:36 dcook I don't use the WSL2 Docker Desktop
23:36 dcook I use OG Docker Desktop
23:36 dcook Which uses Hyper-V for it's Linux VM
23:36 dcook Let me take a wee look..
23:37 tuxayo > I use OG Docker Desktop
23:37 tuxayo maybe it's that!
23:37 dcook vm.max_map_count = 262144
23:37 tuxayo OG?
23:38 dcook tuxayo: Yep heh
23:38 tuxayo ^^
23:38 dcook I'm behind the times with English slang but I find that one convenient haha
23:39 tuxayo I learned it recently so we are in sync ^^
23:40 dcook Based on that setting, I must've gone into the Docker host and run that command then
23:40 dcook Neato
23:42 dcook Looking at Koha/REST/V1/ and wishing someone had refactored C4/ instead.. heh
23:45 dcook Although if I did refactor C4/ maybe the REST API would be a good place to test it..
23:45 dcook Not today though. Not today...
23:46 dcook tuxayo: If you want to see something (that I at least think is) cool, check out bug 30289
23:46 huginn Bug https://bugs.koha-community.or[…]_bug.cgi?id=30289 enhancement, P5 - low, ---, dcook, NEW , Use Template::Toolkit WRAPPER to reduce template boilerplate
23:51 dcook Still needs some work but so useful..
23:51 tuxayo dcook: look cool indeed. So we have a lot of duplication as of now?
23:51 dcook Soooo much
23:52 dcook Using a wrapper should make it easier to add content and maintain existing content
23:53 dcook I have a different Perl project that has used one for years and it's so handy
