Chandler-DependencyPlugin 0.1

Support Dependencies between items in Chandler

The Dependency Plug-in is an experimental plug-in, created early on to demonstrate some of the things that are possible in Chandler Desktop’s plug-in framework. However, as we’ve made changes and improvements to the app, plug-ins such as this one have not been updated or tested. As a result, to safeguard against data corruption, we recommend that you run a separate, clean version of Chandler when installing plug-ins.

The Dependency Plug-in adds rudimentary dependency tracking between items in Chandler.

To set an item as a dependency, copy the item, select another item, then go to the Edit > Dependencies menu. New Dependencies and Blocking menus will be added to items, selecting a dependency or blocker will navigate to that item.

There is currently no way to remove a dependency.

To download and install the plugin from the Chandler UI, use the “Plugins -> Download” and “Plugins -> Install” menus.

To download and install the plugin from the command line, use Chandler’s InstallPlugin script and restart Chandler:

InstallPlugin Chandler-DependencyPlugin

If you want to work on its code, you can use:

RunPython develop

to install it in development mode (where you can make changes and have them take effect whenever Chandler is restarted), or you can use:

RunPython install

to install it as an .egg file.

Note that when installed as an egg file, changes made to the source code will not affect Chandler execution, until you run install or develop again.

After making changes to this plugin, you should update its version number in and in the chandler/Makefile, so that people using “quick builds” of Chandler will use your new version.

If you want to run this plugin’s tests use:

RunPython test
