We need to be able to use
select_one_from_file in an XLSForm which we upload to KoboToolbox and deploy for data collection using Enketo.
Currently, forms like this can’t be deployed because of https://github.com/XLSForm/pyxform/issues/87
I’d like to fix that (I can confirm that Martijn’s suggestion works) and submit a PR, but I am not sure which branch to base the required changes against.
https://github.com/XLSForm/pyxform seems to be the master repo, and it includes https://github.com/XLSForm/pyxform/commit/fab7fce8d22163a1c017c07d2c58b149050b96ca which closes https://github.com/XLSForm/pyxform/issues/30 and provides the
However, https://github.com/kobotoolbox/pyxform seems to have diverged significantly from https://github.com/XLSForm/pyxform but seems to be the one that Kobocat is using (
git+https://github.com/kobotoolbox/pyxform.git#egg=pyxform-dev). That branch doesn’t seem to have https://github.com/XLSForm/pyxform/commit/fab7fce8d22163a1c017c07d2c58b149050b96ca.
I don’t think I can easily switch back to Master or to https://github.com/kobotoolbox/pyxform/tree/xlsform-master because the KoboToolbox master includes commits that add functionality, e.g. the SPSS Labels, that isn’t in the XLSForm/pyxform.
Do you have any recommendations on the best way to get the
select_one_from_file functionality into the version of Pyxform that is used by Kobocat?
