Lino Welfare memo commands

This is a tested document. The following instructions are used for initialization:

>>> from lino import startup
>>> startup('lino_welfare.projects.gerd.settings.demo')
>>> from lino.api.doctest import *



Insert a link to an external web page. The first argument is the URL (mandatory). If no other argument is given, the URL is used as text. Otherwise the remaining text is used as the link text.

The link will always open in a new window (target="_blank")

Usage examples:

  • [url]

  • [url example]

  • [url another example]


Refer to a note. Usage example:

See [note 1].

Note that the URI of the link depends on the front end renderer and on the user permissions. For example, the default front end lino.modlib.extjs will render it like this:

>>> ses = rt.login('robin',
...     renderer=settings.SITE.kernel.default_renderer)
>>> print(ses.parse_memo("See [note 1]."))
See <a href=",{ &quot;record_id&quot;: 1 })">#1</a>.

While the plain text renderer will render:

>>> print(rt.login('robin').parse_memo("See [note 1]."))
See <a href="Detail">#1</a>.

Or when the user has no permission to open the detail window:

>>> print(rt.login().parse_memo("See [note 1]."))
See <em>#1</em>.

Referring to a non-existing note:

>>> print(rt.login().parse_memo("See [note 1234]."))
See [ERROR Note matching query does not exist. in '[note 1234]' at position 4-15].
