Latest Release 0.1.2

By admin, August 22, 2009 3:20 pm

I am delighted to announce the latest release of KPInator, 0.1.2. This is an interim release aimed at tidying up the user administration functionality.

Changes include:

  1. Tidy up the users index page (remove superflous fields etc)
  2. Add a second password field on the add user form, both passwords must match each other.
  3. Impose a minimum 6 character password size.
  4. Change the edit user for to only allow the change of user name and user level (aka group).
  5. Add a change password form and hook to the menu. This allows a user to change their password by first entering the current password.

Please note that the user administration pages are not available from the menu. User administration is part of the on-going work to implement an access control system that will see user administration as part of an administrators function. To administer users enter the URL

It was inevitable that along with the first release would come the first bug!

A bit of a show stopper there was no user information in the file used to initially populate the database and as a result you couldn’t log in once KPInator was installed. This is now fixed.

At the same time I’ve simplified the database part of the install by combining a number of SQL scripts into one.

Have fun…

First Release!

I am delighted to announce the first release of KPInator, version 0.1.0. KPInator is a convenient means to display business key performance indicators (KPIs) in a web browser. The KPIs change colour at preset values and the user can create historical charts to display by clicking on a KPI in the dashboard.

The application is basically fully functional; but in a rather raw state in that there’s no installer and no documentation. Also the styling still leans very heavily on the generic CakePHP styles and so it’s not the prettiest looking application in the world. However it does all work, which is the main thing.
