What is working (sort of):

  • Running background tasks using celery
  • Uploading scans and importing them into projects
  • Running recognition
  • Building a questionnaire (LaTeX document)
  • Changing the questionnaire ussing angular.js
  • pdf.js based preview is working
  • Basic UI for reviewing the recognition
  • Downloading results as CSV and reports

What is missing:

  • PDF Preview widget needs proper UI
  • All pages (especially editing page) need a proper stylesheet/structure.
  • Django templats need to be reworked
  • Slow tasks should get a less important queue
  • User/rights management
  • General thoughts about usability:
    • How are surveys managed?
    • Should they be grouped?
    • How should they be sorted?
    • What should be done about surveys that are finished?
    • What kind of permission management could be interesting?
