Hi everyone, so this was the week of mid-term evaluations. Glad to have passed the midterm evaluations 🙂 . Unfortunately I could not achieve a lot during this week but here are the things that I was able to do
1. Read about Coreapps module and tried to understand the code of the module.
2. Was able to add links of a few more apps to the homepage of the module, but I am getting some errors while using some of those links.
During the next week I have to decide whether to modify and use the coreapps module for the project or not as I believe certain features of the coreapps module are designed specifically for the referenceapplication.
This week I started with configuration of some apps on the home page of the module. This is how the home page looks after the addition of some of the apps.
I am facing an error while trying to use Register Patient App and have sent a mail to the dev list regarding the same. Hopefully I would be able to solve the error early next week.The following is the screenshot of the style guide
The style guide that is currently being used in the module is the same as that of the reference application. I will be modifying it considerably to suit the needs of the module.I will also be adding more apps in the coming weeks to the home page.
Regarding next weeks tasks I have to chalk out some details with Jeremy Sir.
Reference Application makes use of an extra module-ReferenceMetadata to set required global properties and any necessary configurations that are required to make the application functional. So this week’s task was to imitate the same behaviour for the OpenMRS Lite module. So I had to make a decision of whether to use ReferenceMetadata module(that is to make OpenMRS Lite module depend on ReferenceMetadata or to have these properties declared and used in the Lite module itself). So for now I decided to make use of ReferenceMetadata as it is. I made the required changes in the module activator for this purpose. I also made changes to authenticate the users data entered in the login page.
The home page
Tasks to be accomplished in the next week
1. Configure different apps used in the reference application.
2. Make a video for the mid-term presentation.
This week I continued with the creation of Login page for the module. The task at hand was to override the current Login page that is encountered in the Legacy OpenMRS and redirect the user to the new Login page. I created the login page and wrote the necessary controller for it by seeing how it was done for the reference application. I also created the Home page for the module.
This week also involved a lot of reading of the UI FrameWork module (https://wiki.openmrs.org/display/docs/UI+Framework+Step+By+Step+Tutorial) and AppFramework services (https://wiki.openmrs.org/display/docs/App+Framework+Step+by+Step+Tutorial)
I also made my first commit this week.
The challenges I am currently facing are how to use data from different modules on which this module depends.
This was the workflow designed for different users of OpenMRS.
So the next task for this week was to design the Login page by over-riding the current Login page of the legacy OpenMRS. I read different OpenMRS documentation for doing the required work. Unfortunately I could complete the Login page this week and hope to do so early next week.
