2019-07-15 09:54:32 GMT <alfresco-discord> <kanat> Hello, guys

2019-07-15 09:54:44 GMT <alfresco-discord> <kanat> Please, help me

2019-07-15 09:59:42 GMT <angelborroy> @kanat help with what?

2019-07-15 10:11:41 GMT <alfresco-discord> <kanat> Thanks, I think I understand

2019-07-15 12:03:40 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> I wish I could get the smae kind of help 😉

2019-07-15 14:00:50 GMT * AFaust sees a meeting invite and can't help but laugh a bit.... "Alfresco meets Axel Faust"

2019-07-15 14:03:00 GMT <AFaust> ... when the local sales team has been renewed so many times that nobody knows who the heck you are or got any information from the previous guys (because they too did not know)....

2019-07-15 14:42:45 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> if anyone needs a document templating solution - https://github.com/PleoSoft/pleodox-community

2019-07-15 14:42:46 GMT <alfbot> Title:GitHub - PleoSoft/pleodox-community: Templating Server for MS WORD DOCX templates - output WORD or PDF (at github.com)

2019-07-15 14:45:58 GMT <AFaust> Oh... a templating solution using custom XML parts in Office...

2019-07-15 14:47:14 GMT <AFaust> I forgot why exactly we dropped this at one of my customers... if I remember correctly, the Office tooling was thought to be quite unwieldly by end users...

2019-07-15 14:48:26 GMT <AFaust> Di yiz actually have a UI (even if not published / planned to be published) which uses this, or is this just meant for developer / programmatic access?

2019-07-15 14:48:31 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> 100 people 100 different experiences

2019-07-15 14:48:49 GMT <AFaust> yiz = you

2019-07-15 14:48:58 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> ui will be there later one, now is in my commerical tool

2019-07-15 14:49:14 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> but I am planning to release part of it indeed

2019-07-15 14:49:27 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> https://github.com/PleoSoft/pleodox-community/wiki/Community-vs-Enterprise-Commercial

2019-07-15 14:49:28 GMT <alfbot> Title:Community vs Enterprise Commercial · PleoSoft/pleodox-community Wiki · GitHub (at github.com)

2019-07-15 14:50:10 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> otherwise I have a couple of good integrations with workflow engines (APS/flowable)

2019-07-15 14:50:42 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> where you can "easily" define forms and than call "pleodox" with those variables etc ...

2019-07-15 14:50:50 GMT <AFaust> Would have understood if you didn't... creating a flexible / usable UI so that users can manage their own templates and instantiate them in various use cases (in ours, we have quite complex template structures with potentially dozens of such template documents that get instantiated and processed at once) is quite a complex task.

2019-07-15 14:50:59 GMT <AFaust> Certainly worth reaping some income from that...

2019-07-15 14:51:28 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> here too you can specify several tempolates at once

2019-07-15 14:51:59 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> &template=abc.docx&template=...

2019-07-15 14:52:18 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> you can check it via docker and there is a postman collection

2019-07-15 14:52:25 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> who knows 😉

2019-07-15 14:52:49 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> I thought it was worth open sourcing a part of it and at least give it here

2019-07-15 14:53:01 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> since many time I needed something liek this in my projects

2019-07-15 14:53:16 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> it handles tables/lists, simple variables etc ...

2019-07-15 14:56:42 GMT <angelborroy> @dgradecak it looks great

2019-07-15 14:56:56 GMT <angelborroy> Some chance to add a shared Volume for file sharing?

2019-07-15 14:57:39 GMT <angelborroy> Is that named “hot folders”?

2019-07-15 14:57:42 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> it is there

2019-07-15 14:57:55 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> aha file sharing once generated?

2019-07-15 14:58:16 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> there is a volume /templates but not /generated-files (although can be added)

2019-07-15 14:59:14 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> hotfolders are for enterpsie (a folder where a user can just put a "descriptor" file and a data file, than in async get generated files)

2019-07-15 14:59:25 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> thank you angel

2019-07-15 15:00:11 GMT <angelborroy> No source is available for the Dockerfile?

2019-07-15 15:00:25 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> ah ...

2019-07-15 15:00:40 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> jsut published the docker, did not push it maybe on github yet. will do now

2019-07-15 15:01:10 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> should be there now, sorry

2019-07-15 15:03:12 GMT <angelborroy> Nice project, I’m going to tweet about that ;-)

2019-07-15 15:03:13 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> do you wnat to be the first one to open an "issue" about the generated files volume ;)(

2019-07-15 15:03:24 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> I will retweet it haha

2019-07-15 15:05:27 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> with time I will give morte documentation etc ... just decided a week ago to make a piece of it opensource

2019-07-15 15:05:47 GMT <angelborroy> Why are you taking Zulu Docker Image as base?

2019-07-15 15:06:37 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> honestly, because today I checked for an base image with java 11 ... and found that one (although big ...). no real reason

2019-07-15 15:07:12 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> I read about some issies with alpine and java 11 but I wanted a debian

2019-07-15 15:07:51 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> but let me know if something lighter is there, you know that better than me

2019-07-15 15:08:20 GMT <angelborroy> Just curiosity

2019-07-15 15:08:24 GMT <angelborroy> It’s fine for me

2019-07-15 15:15:52 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> muchas gracias for the tweet;)

2019-07-15 15:17:33 GMT <angelborroy> de nada, majo!
