Scripting Tryton Tutorial Video

Rational

A recurring subject is Tryton tutorial and specifically video. Today, people want to learn by watching video.
The big difficulty is to create those video in a way that we can maintain them when new versions are releases.

Proposal

The idea of Making ERPNext Help Videos with Scripting is very attractive.
So we could reuse the libraries: testcafe, say.js and dogtail.

we can solve this issue be acting fast, as fast as the development of tryton.
each version release, there should be video tutorial explaining the new features only.

Experience shows that it is not the case.

The problem is that potentially on each release something may have change in any tutorial. So the goal is to be able to redo a tutorial with the minimum work.

The only way out of this problem is designing the tutorial sequence.

Let us make an example, trial is the best way of approval.

Another tool:

Would it be possible to use test scenarios and build automatically videos from them? So how-to videos would be linked to the test scenarios that theirselves are updated by the developpers. Once existing scenarios are all turned into video, maybe it will be time to think to add more.

Thats a good idea but I think the videos require a more verbose explanation that the tests scenario.
Also the scenario may test some specific features that may not be relevant to all users.

For me the tests scenarios can be used as a base to create the first videos tutorials but after that they will need to be updated separatly.

For example here is the erpnext videotutorial for the equivalent functionality of the sale_advancement’s module scenario.

Although I agree a video tutorial require a more verbose explanation than a test scenario, they would still be a good starting point. Anyway, please don’t give up :wink:
