re: Introducing: Inveinta - Another Inventory Management Tool VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

Hey Kyle, this is really cool.

It definitely took me a few seconds to understand the "mix-ins" concepts. It seems like it basically allows you to quickly add a few pre-defined columns, right? And in some cases, those new columns have some corresponding functionality — IE checking something in and out of circulation.

At first the MTG (Magic the Gathering) example made me think that you'd be pre-filling rows. That could also be pretty cool... for instance, if you wanted to create your own recipe book but also wanted it back-filled from the start.

 

Hey Peter. You're exactly right, it just adds columns and sometimes that have functionality. I'm not sure what you mean, though, by pre-filling rows. In the case of MTG, for example, would you mean that it would pre-fill all of the card information for every card, and you'd just edit quantities and such?

If so, that would be pretty cool, but it would get taxing very quickly with all the other card games out there! I am wondering how it would apply to recipes?

Thanks for reading and checking it out all the same!

Yes, agreed that this would be really taxing. I think that your initial approach is definitely the right one. But having ready-made "libraries" to mix-in could be a cool eventual and/or crowd-sourced feature.

For instance, I could "mix in" the top 100 movies as rated by IMDB. And then leave my own notes and ratings using Inveinta. I could imagine that as a reasonable use case. :)

That does sound like a great feature! I'll need to get more users first before I can figure out what pre-made lists would be useful!
