Hello Johannes,

EDIT: I would love to try Zen mode, but there is no button anywhere on the page. I'm logged in using my GitHub account.

Hey Normand,

it seems the Zen mode button is only present for the translation view. If I go on this page ("all strings" for web-messages in French):

https://weblate.stbuehler.de/projects/B ... /?type=all

I have the button here

I will be giving a lightning talk about BOLTS at 31C3 in Hamburg this year.

If anybody is around and wants to meet up and discuss a bit, just drop me a note.

I have been recently installing Bolts on a windows installation of FreeCAD (Development-version). This did not work, like it was advised on the Bolts-webpage. The problems are the dependencies to yaml and pyside-tools.
As FreeCAD has its own python installation, an installation of yaml and pyside-tools in windows does not solve the dependency-problems. I had to copy the files from the windows installation into the corresponding FreeCAD-directories.
Regarding pysideuic, is it not possible to use the FreeCAD-version of the pysideuic, so to avoid at least this dependency?

In order to make the usage of Bolts easier for windows user, it should be considered to put yaml into the library-package.

For me pysidetools and pysideuic were not a problem.

I only had to copy the yaml files to
C:\Users\USERNAME\FreeCAD_DEV\bin\Lib\site-packages

I figured this out by looking at the numpy files.

I agree that adding yaml to the libpack would make it easier for windows users, but as FreeCAD is not dependent on it I don't know if its required in the libpack.

I did just the same. That solved the yaml dependency for me.
I still had the same to do with the pysidetools with the bolts-version: BOLTS_FreeCAD_201411252104_lgpl2.1+

Have been using yaml on Linux for month now and came accross the same problem lately when I was doing some FreeCAD work on Windows. I left it at that time. Cool to read something in this regard. Did I need to install ymal first and copy the files or do I just need to copy the yaml installation files in that folder.
