2013-07-07 04:54 <zodman> utf-8 ?
2013-07-07 19:18 <cdnl_> couple questions -- accounting -- canada gst, hst etc etc.. how well does this all work with tryton, is there any paid supporting services to handle this type of stuff
2013-07-07 22:05 <diggy> Hi all!
2013-07-07 22:10 <diggy> I'm in the process of evaluating different ERP like solutions for my company. Could someone answer a few questions?
2013-07-07 22:20 <cedk> diggy: yes
2013-07-07 22:20 <diggy> Great!
2013-07-07 22:21 <diggy> First of all I'd want to say I'm a dev my self and been contributing to Kexi project
2013-07-07 22:22 <diggy> 1) Is tryton production ready? I mean is it dependable to use?
2013-07-07 22:23 <cedk> diggy: we used it to run my company
2013-07-07 22:23 <diggy> cool
2013-07-07 22:23 <cedk> diggy: and I know many others who do the same
2013-07-07 22:24 <diggy> Since I want to use it in Greece, I'm willing to translate all strings and add Greek accounting chart. Is there any rough approximation of the time it'd take?
2013-07-07 22:26 <cedk> diggy: don't know it from scratch as we do french since 1.0 so we just have to update new strings
2013-07-07 22:26 <diggy> ok
2013-07-07 22:27 <diggy> 3) Can it handle printing invoices with dot matrix printers? haven't looked at reporting yet
2013-07-07 22:28 <cedk> diggy: there is about 15k strings to translate but monly 10k unique
2013-07-07 22:29 <diggy> I believe that's for all modules?
2013-07-07 22:29 <cedk> diggy: yes
2013-07-07 22:30 <cedk> diggy: printing is just the server sending odt file to client
2013-07-07 22:30 <diggy> is all printing done via odt?
2013-07-07 22:31 <cedk> diggy: don't know how dot matrix works but you can get the odt file and manipulate it from a custom module
2013-07-07 22:32 <cedk> diggy: by default it is odt but you can use unoconv to convert to any Ooo supported format
2013-07-07 22:32 <diggy> printing to a dot matrix means using escape codes to position the printing head and specifying attributes (double, bold, carriage return, etc)
2013-07-07 22:32 <cedk> diggy: or you can get your own report generator to generate any kind of file
2013-07-07 22:33 <diggy> best case would be stream output directly to printer
2013-07-07 22:34 <diggy> another issue, probably the biggest one is the use of fiscal printers
2013-07-07 22:37 <diggy> each invoice before printed on paper goes through the fiscal printer, gets a digested hash for the document's contents and is redirected to the printer with the hash printed on the bottom of the form/paper
2013-07-07 22:37 <cedk> diggy: looks like an OS issue not Tryton
2013-07-07 22:46 <diggy> So I'll have to design my own printing own should we come to that
2013-07-07 22:54 <cedk> diggy: not completly
2013-07-07 22:55 <cedk> diggy: I don't know how easy it is to communicate with your printer
2013-07-07 22:55 <cedk> diggy: but you just have to add a post processing that do the stuffs with your printer
2013-07-07 22:56 <diggy> Actually it's a bit more complicated.
2013-07-07 22:56 <diggy> Dot matrix printers don't know where in the page the head is located
2013-07-07 22:57 <diggy> eg to print "test" five chars from left you have to send something like: SSSSStest
2013-07-07 22:57 <diggy> where S is a special blank escape char (standard EPSON escape sequences)
2013-07-07 22:58 <cedk> diggy: how a printer can know that ???
2013-07-07 22:58 <cedk> diggy: printer doesn't read
2013-07-07 22:58 <diggy> What I meant is it can't calculate
2013-07-07 22:58 <diggy> it's a line printer
2013-07-07 22:58 <diggy> not a page printer
2013-07-07 22:59 <diggy> You can put an invoice halfway to the printer and it's start printing like it was from the top
2013-07-07 22:59 <cedk> diggy: don't understand
2013-07-07 22:59 <cedk> but indeed I don't have to
2013-07-07 23:00 <diggy> yeah, it a bit messy
2013-07-07 23:42 -!- cdnl__(~cdnl@ has left #tryton
