2018-03-27 05:58:05 GMT <anamika> I am trying to make the default view in document library to be simple view instead of detailed view.

2018-03-27 05:58:17 GMT <anamika> So,I have changed the following in documentlist.js placed inside project in share/src/main/assembly/components/web

2018-03-27 05:58:30 GMT <anamika> viewRendererName: "simple",

2018-03-27 05:59:03 GMT <anamika> and commented out /*viewRendererName: "detailed",*/

2018-03-27 05:59:14 GMT <anamika> but still the default view is appearing to be default in the document library

2018-03-27 06:00:20 GMT <anamika> sorry the default view is still appearing to be detailed view in document library

2018-03-27 06:01:24 GMT <anamika> can anyone tell me why this is so

2018-03-27 07:32:55 GMT <anamika> any help would be greatly appreciated

2018-03-27 07:33:29 GMT <Loftux> anamika: Either the changed file is not being picked up, or you are testing with a user that has a preference set. Test with a user not logged in before.

2018-03-27 07:40:14 GMT <anamika> Loftux,I have created a separate maven project and placed the file documentlist.js inside share/src/main/assembly/components/web

2018-03-27 07:40:28 GMT <anamika> how the file is not getting overrided

2018-03-27 07:42:05 GMT <Loftux> anamika: I don't know, it can be that it finds the original in the classpath first, and doesn't bother with the one you override with. for you to find out, just suggested what to look for.

2018-03-27 07:43:22 GMT <anamika> okie loftux,I will see this

2018-03-27 09:07:22 GMT <qwebirc5235> Good afternoon! I have question regarding Alfresco Process Services: I have a form with a people chooser. How I can get the user name in a Tasklistener? I think I need the userService? But how to pass it to the TaskListener (Java code)?

2018-03-27 14:23:08 GMT <fwu> hi all

2018-03-27 15:49:30 GMT <kgastaldo> Hey Guys - I wanted to ask about this chat.

2018-03-27 15:50:03 GMT <kgastaldo> So, as most of you know - Richard Esplin is leaving us. Turns out that he hosts the logs on his personal server.

2018-03-27 15:50:15 GMT <kgastaldo> He's not going to stop doing that - but it did make me think.

2018-03-27 15:50:25 GMT <kgastaldo> How do you guys feel about moving the chat to a new channel - gitter? slack?

2018-03-27 16:01:30 GMT <bmejias> hi kgastaldo, I personally like the fact that IRC is so light weight.

2018-03-27 16:01:42 GMT <bmejias> I have never used gitter

2018-03-27 16:02:42 GMT <bmejias> and I have used slack a couple of times... it's nice, but it felt really heavy in terms of resources

2018-03-27 16:03:27 GMT <bmejias> but it's true that it has a lot more capabilities, like sharing media an all that... and we can also have bots.... but, personally, I'm not convinced

2018-03-27 16:03:42 GMT <bmejias> it seems to me like a good subject for office hours

2018-03-27 16:03:53 GMT <resplin> We tried Slack, but the free accounts have limited history and reduced features.

2018-03-27 16:04:12 GMT <resplin> Many of the teams are already using Gitter, but each channel is tied to a specific GitHub repo. So there isn't a good global place.

2018-03-27 16:04:51 GMT <resplin> Though we talked about creating a top-level catch-all GitHub repo that would replace the ALF project in JIRA for issue tracking, and the associated Gitter channel could replace this channel as a catch-all for conversation.

2018-03-27 16:05:17 GMT <resplin> My biggest reason to stay on IRC is so that I can continue hosting alfbot, giving me a tangible contribution to Order of the Bee so that I can retain my voting status. grin

2018-03-27 16:05:27 GMT * resplin recognizes that reason doesn't matter to anyone else

2018-03-27 16:05:45 GMT <kgastaldo> I'm not sold on moving - just thought with you leaving, we should revisit our options!

2018-03-27 16:08:35 GMT <resplin> Don't get me wrong, it's a good conversation to have. I was just sharing a bit of history.

2018-03-27 16:08:53 GMT <resplin> I have had people tell me that they prefer Gitter to IRC.

2018-03-27 16:09:17 GMT <bmejias> resplin, alfbot is a good argument :D

2018-03-27 16:09:54 GMT <bmejias> I have heard many times that Slack is way better than IRC, and that it will replace email

2018-03-27 16:10:24 GMT <bmejias> we tried that at the order of the bee and I started getting spammed by Slack: "you have a new notification!"

2018-03-27 16:10:28 GMT <bmejias> we tried that at the order of the bee and I started getting spammed by Slack: "you have a new notification!"

2018-03-27 16:10:37 GMT <resplin> Gitter has built in most of the capabilities that alfbot provides: history, messages, last seen info

2018-03-27 16:11:05 GMT <resplin> The Activiti and ADF both really like it.

2018-03-27 16:11:15 GMT <resplin> The Activiti and ADF Teams both really like it.

2018-03-27 16:11:24 GMT <bmejias> I think we should have advocates for each option and discuss it at office hours

2018-03-27 16:12:25 GMT <resplin> It's a good topic for discussion. Unfortunately, I can't attend as I'll be getting my ID badge at my new employer at that time. But that shouldn't hold anything up.

2018-03-27 16:19:22 GMT <bmejias> by the way, I thought office hours were on Friday, but no, it's on Thursday

2018-03-27 16:28:54 GMT * resplin adds it to his calendar.

2018-03-27 16:37:22 GMT <fcorti> yes, this time is on Thrusday

2018-03-27 16:44:33 GMT <fcorti> Me and kgastaldo we will take this... (we must survive without Richard :-) )

2018-03-27 16:45:19 GMT <resplin> Survive? You are a far better host than I was. I chalk it up to the Italian accent and good looks.

2018-03-27 16:45:55 GMT <fcorti> Richard... we will miss you... full stop!

2018-03-27 16:45:56 GMT <fcorti> :-)

2018-03-27 18:06:51 GMT <hi-ko> bmejias, fcorti, kgastaldo: another aspect would be the question of control. even irc is old school it has another business model and you have to rely on same interests

2018-03-27 18:09:08 GMT <hi-ko> gitter, slack works by collecting, controling or maybe selling data and profiles

2018-03-27 20:23:29 GMT <bmejias> ~later tell hi-ko interesting point, thanks hi-ko. If you are not discussing during office hours, I will try to remember your point

2018-03-27 20:23:29 GMT <alfbot> bmejias: The operation succeeded.
