Possession - a home inventory app

This app demo was inspired by "Anthony Ajduk aka AjAs" on the community, I thought it was a good idea, and used it as a vehicle to try out a few things. I kept things fairly minimal and simple. Some of the activities you will find in this app are:

  • Splash screen with canvas
  • All done on one screen, use of virtual screens (arrangements) for everything
  • how to get permissions for storage on the sdcard, and create a directory there with a canvas (block placement is important here)
  • Use of Juan's base64 extension to convert images to code, allowing the saving of everything to the tinydb and a text file
  • Put to work my html cardview demo to display inventory items in a list
  • Cropping and resizing images to save space on the scard but also to give consistency to the display
  • A bit of DRY (don't repeat yourself) it might have seemed easier at the time to create separate virtual screens for VIEW/EDIT/REMOVE, but with the use of colour, and enablement/disablement of components achieved the same thing with one virtual screen
