Roster

At the moment a roster and shift management software, using CouchDB as the backend.

The thing is designed really to be backend agnostic and extendable by plugin views, even plugin types and their editors.

But at the moment works against CouchDB and has the only the following types (and their editors): shift, location, person, settings, user.

And the following views of data: table, calendar and time sheet.

The framework used to hold the frontend UI together is SmartClient.

It uses my bootstrapjs to organize the whole in modules to keep the complexity down.

The challenge I set my self was to not use any server code and run the app straight of CouchDB as a couchapp, but still have proper role based authentication and role based setting up of replications of databases, this is working thanks to my validate_doc_update.

The app runs equally well using the in browser database (pouchdb) or and external Couchdb instance.

To help people set up a CouchDB instance I wrote quilt, it configures and sets up all the necessary replications for them. It is also a generic CouchDB manager a la futon.

The idea is to have a decentralized but hierarchical group of CouchDB instances against which the app can work, see my blurb on security.

In the end staff can view their upcoming shifts online, bosses can manipulate them, and management can have an overview and collate all the data easily.

SmartClient is a bit cumbersome and it would be nice to rewrite the app using no frameworks. Especially the calendar gets a bit sluggish.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
