status of gramps-connect???

robhealey1
Dear Doug:

I can see all of the work that you are doing in the Gramps-Connect project so I must ask:

Is the state of Gramps-Connect usable right now or should I wait for now???

Rob,

It is getting closer... we have a three-day weekend here in the US, so
I'm hoping to make some progress. I hope to have all of the basics
done by July 1.

I think that one can generally edit all of the simple elements on each
of the primary objects. For example, one can edit/delete/add People,
Families, Events, etc. Two main parts left:

1) some errors in importing
2) finish all of the components of the primary objects (add references
to other objects, edit details, like LDS, attributes, etc.)

If you wanted to make some initial tests, that would be great. There
is a lot of font and visual issues to be solved. But, you can do the
simple start at the top of:

http://www.gramps-project.org/wiki/index.php?title=Gramps-Connect

Hope you are doing well!

-Doug

I tried that too, but here it failed because I didn't have Django
installed. I solved that by following the instructions on the GEPS 013 page:

http://www.gramps-project.org/wiki/index.php?title=GEPS_013:_GRAMPS_Webapp#Getting_Started_with_Gramps_in_Django

Hope this helps some other people too.

cheers,

Enno

Thanks... and feel free just to edit the page (I just added the
requirements there which also include sqlite3). I'm trying to
consolidate the latest information and instructions to the first link,
with the plans that Gramps Connect will be in a somewhat working state
this year.

I think that most of the infrastructure is now in place so that if any
developer wanted to join in, it is now more clear what to do, and how.
(I'd be glad to write some intro docs for developers, if anyone is
interested.)

Indeed, things are starting to really fall into place now! I've
updated the live site:
* http://gramps-connect.org/

And the getting started page:
* http://www.gramps-project.org/wiki/index.php?title=Gramps-Connect

Summary:
* you can add/edit/delete all of the main data on all of the Primary objects
* you can create references to other objects (notes on person, etc.)
* you can run all reports, exports, and imports on the web
* you can search the data using a query language ("Smith, Joe,
private=1", see wiki for more)

I hope that the rest of the data can be made to be edited in the next
month or so.

FYI, I'm keeping the http://gramps-connect.org/ site up to date with
all of the latest code (this helps make sure that it works on Django
1.2, as I develop on Django 1.3. I think Rob has at least tried with
Django 1.4). id: "admin", password: "gramps".

I can see light at the end of the tunnel... there is now less left to
do than has been done. Actually, I think that there is about 10% left.
Still need to edit all the details on all objects (attributes,
address, internet, LDS, etc), and need to be able to edit shared
details. But that is the bulk of what is left.

I just added WYSIWYG editing of notes, and that seems to match up
fairly nicely with Gramps markup.

I also just made my first use of the site with my Android phone... not
bad! Of course, it would be great with a mobile CSS made for a phone,
but I was able to manipulate the data without too many problems (I
couldn't use the formatting in the WYSIWYG editor, but could
enter/edit text. But maybe there is a trick to selecting data on the
Android.)

I also just tried with a tablet (iPad, Safari) and that worked even
better! (I had to use the text-only version of the WYSIWYG HTML
editor, but that was fine.)

Just imported some data, exported, and ran a report straight from web.
Pretty cool, if I have to say so myself :)
