Things to Buy
The things-to-buy space...
The idea is that we can automate tracking of the consumable items that we periodically need to replace at DoES.
The process is something like this:
- we create a QR code and put it on or near an item which we will run out of (coffee, crisps etc.)
the QR code points to tr.im/1bRyy?item=$THING, where $THING is a short description of the thing to buy or a bar code number
this tr.im service redirects to a node-red flow I have set up to create an issue in this DoES things-to-buy repository.
a DoeS organisers/contributors can subscribe to issue creation notifications and choose to take ownership of the issue indicating they will purchase on the next trip.
after replacing the needed item the issue can then be closed.
You can create a QR code for editing, e.g. with Inkscape using a node-red flow here
Where $THING is the thing that needs to be bought.
Alternatively you can use the QR Codifier application installed on DoES Sophia PC or available here
