The Memento Database Wiki was born very modestly in July, 2016, as mere links to the existing User Manual and FAQ. Initial development began in late July, with a main page fashioned from a marketing blurb. The page was then honed from that into a more proper main page. By the end of July, the main page and essential pages linked from it were created.
The month of August was consumed by refurbishment and normalization of those initial pages and the construction of the field type pages for the 29 field types in existence at the time.
Areas of new growth will be How & Techniques pages (including approaches, tips, and techniques), examples, additional overview pages, and articles, including tutorials, as initial versions of all Spec pages have been created.
The initial work is being done by user Bill Crews (Bill.Crews@gmail.com). During this initial stage of its development, users, developers, and group members can help by reading the pages, identifying any errors or unclear language, and including them along with suggestions in email messages to Bill. Alternatively, members can ask questions or make comments in the Memento Group.
Update Wed 15 Apr 2020
Now, I am guilty of feeling very strongly that Calculation fields should be dropped off the plank of a galleon in the deepest part of the Abyss. It is baroque beyond all reason, though a good very early effort by the developer to provide a bit of easy-to-learn scripting for Memento users. And support can't be removed for it without breaking everyone's code.
In the meantime
In the Introduction,
- If you start doing what it says is so simple -- Yes, it is relatively simple -- but it seeks to teach you way more and mostly different information than what you need.
- Skip the Introduction. You already read it above.
- Grammar is excellent. Please read.
- Control flow is good, Skip the error handling, try/catch/throw, & error objects.
- Functions is good, but Skip the following subsections ...
- Function scope
- Arrow functions
- Expressions and operators is excellent.
- Numbers & dates is excellent.
- Text formatting is good but Skip Template literals & Regular expressions.
- Indexed collections is good, but Skip Typed arrays.
- Skip Keyed collections.
- Working with objects is good, but Skip Getter and setter.
- Skip Details of the object model.
- Skip the rest of the guide.
Then, read the following Memento Wiki pages in sequence:
- Custom Data Sources
- Trigger Examples
Check back during the Coronavirus crisis for the tutorial and for incremental additions to it over time.
Wiki Page Categories
Every wiki page is in at least one category. You can see the page's categories at the very bottom of each page. To see a list of all wiki pages by their categories (similar to a site map), see the Category:Memento page.
