Requested by a colleague, who is also a Red Cross volunteer and team-lead, to write an application for planning the ca. 700 Red Cross volunteers onto bunk-beds during the Four Days Marches yearly held in Nijmegen, NL, this year (2017) for the 101st time.Features
BedPlanner combines a list of people, some with specific requests, and a list of locations/rooms/beds so the people can get a good night sleep after a hard days work, medically supporting the walkers (blisters, muscle cramps, fatigue, etc.). This used to be done manually by one person, but it takes days to get everybody happy about their bed. This year it is all done 'mechanically' by BedPlanner, so only a computer to blame
More elaborate description on the Web Page.Planned Features
Depends on the Red Cross team, organizing the Four Days Marches.Screenshots
No screenshots, as it is a command-line operated application.UsageInstallation
Unzip the downloaded file into a subdirectory of its own, on upgrade: overwrite any previous files EXCEPT BedPlanner.properties.
Optionally unzip the downloaded test-data.
Ensure an installed Oracle Java 8 or newer runtime.Using the Application
Read the included Readme.md file (best use a MarkDown viewer)
Modify the BedPlanner.properties configuration file as needed, setting the columns for input, etc.
Set up input files
Run the application, using the .cmd or .sh script (assuming Windows or a Linux shell), providing parameters as documented in the Readme.mdUninstallation
Remove all files and directories.Known Issues
It requires some time to grasp the input (and output) file formats, not for the faint of heart
