The new git repository is now containing the updated code. It is mirrored in sourceforge and github, being the main one on gitorious.
As the ongoing work on the merge, now the product editor is working fine with the new features. You can see a screenshot:
New release 0.8 is named persa.
This is an early release due to the situation I live now. I decided to release it as is because i will be offline in my house, and will look for a connection outside from time to time.
Update: I have gotten a paypal account, as some people suggested, and now i can receive donations. Here is the link:
I have implemented a new feature, it is an end of day printed report (or export to PDF) for regular printers.
It shows the transactions -sales- in the day, sales totals and day profit.
Here is the screenshot of a PDF exported report:
I have implemented a new feature for lemon. This let you print big receipts on regular printers or send to a PDF file.
It will be available soon on next release, the 0.7.4 version.
Here is the result sent to a PDF and screen captured.
Yesterday was released the 0.7.3 version with some fixes.
From now, Im starting to incorporate new features that users requested. This requieres some big changes to the database structure, and starting at SVN revision 285 I have introduced new tables that will replace some fields from the products table. So I advice you to use SVN revision 284 or the 0.7.3 release. The SVN always has new code that im testing and may not always work as it should -now it has a floating toolbar for product filters that does not work-.
The big change Im working is to support different stores with a single stock managment from which a product could be sold from a different location -store,warehouse-. Also, a product could have peculiarities that differentiate from the same product, such as color and sizes, having the same code -and price,cost,etc-.
So, there are good things to come, stay tunned.
Recently I have been looking for a chart widget for squeeze. I’ve got a piechart example from a kde developer and It liked to me. So I put hands on to integrate the example in squeeze start screen to show some useful information from the sales and stock. The only problem is that the example is just that -a concept- and it has a few functionalities. There is some work to fix some things and expand it; or wait for a complete widget from this guy or to use the qwt ones (Im not good drawing at runtime with qpainter).
Here is a screenshot of the concept, of course it’s just an example.
The piechart author is Rafael Fernández López and the link to the blog article is http://www.ereslibre.es/?p=97
I have been testing a new look for lemon main window (selling) that reduces the space waste, and makes look clearer. This fixes the oversized window when selected a product with a big photo (128px) on a screen with 800 pixels in height (my laptop).
I have not tested in ahother resolution. Of course it still will cause the oversize of the window, which makes unusable the software (some part of the window can’t be seen). An alternative is to hide the photo for such resolutions, the next workaround to code.
