Qlik Sense Master Item Repository

Hey everyone, I'm currently working on a solution that should enable users to extract their master items from apps to a database and then manage them (clone, edit, etc). There is also an option to export the measures/dimensions to another app.

You could use this tool to 

  • Spread master items to apps with common data models
  • Maintain master items centrally
  • Backup/Version your Master Items
  • ...

I wanted to share this with you to find out if this is interesting for some of you and also to hear about ideas/improvements you have when you see this.

You can find the project here: https://github.com/borismichel/qs-mir

I'm looking forward to your feedback

It looks great by the pictures and what you are writing. I'll check it out. Do you want feedback in GitHub out here in the community?

Thanks, man! Either channel should be fine tbh. I‘m just trying to figure out if it‘s worth pursuing this and if so, what people would want it to do to make it actually useful :). Let me know how you‘re getting on.

Hi @borismichel 

 

Im working with @Vegar and I do believe this is a great tool. We have an extension to export / import masteritems to csv to manage them and to be able to move them between several apps. In this extension we also have the possibility to generate a markdown file for documentation purpose if needed. So keep it up. Looks promising.

PS: Just sent you a PM regarding testing.

Thanks for all the postitive feedback! The past months have been crazy and I haven't been able to give this the love it deserves. The project is far from abandoned though. Stay tuned!

Hi. I'm trying to install this, but the npm install fails. It looks like the directory for sqllite3 isn't in the distribution that's posted on github. Any guidance? Thanks.

Hey, sorry to hear you’re having problems. I’ve just updated all dependencies. Please clone again and check if it works. Should you still have problems, let’s set up a call.
The SQLITE3 package sometimes has a few problems to compile in a non windows environment. I’ve troubleshot that a few times when I set up projects on unix based systems -RasPi or Mac. Made me think of going Postgres a few times ;-).
