OK, just because what I am trying to say is clear to me, doesn't mean
anyone can read my mind! :)

I had some health issues (mine and family too) that mostly shut me down
for a good while. Accounting became temporarily irrelevant for a time.

What I did have plenty of time for was to do my own programming to get
together what I needed in-house to be able to do right now estimates AND
prepare estimates for future items that are likely.

I have not had much time to dig into LSMB programming and it is changing
rapidly, which is great!

I like what I have quite a bit, but I want to tie it into LSMB.

done customized work.

I also see that there are two code bases. 1.3 and 1.4.

>From others experiences, how should I integrate into LSMB?
Is a web interface connection (behind the scenes I am guessing) be best?
Should I go directly into the objects?
Will I have a big problem with my work when upgrading from 1.3 to 1.4?

Now that business is once again going forward, I have less time to
program than before. I need to "get it right" the first time, if

At least that's great news! :-) Well, if you post any questions or thoughts, I can respond with my answers and thoughts of my own.
I don't know how many people might benefit from my system that allows me
to use free time to prepare Materials and Labor estimates before use.
I want to be able to pull these estimates into LSMB when, and not
before, they are needed. Since they are fully prepared beforehand, I
just want to be able to yank them right in, without a lot of manual

If anyone is interested in working with me on this, that would be great.
If not, then any useful advice on how best to accomplish this would be
I don't see exactly what the code roadmap is, so that leaves me a little
crippled for planning my efforts properly.

Hopefully this is a little clearer, if not, any questions are welcome.

 Thanks for the additional explanation! I'm sorry, but meant to send the other mail to Chris Travers (and privately at that! Ouch!)

If you have any questions on how to extend LedgerSMB for your business's purpose, please don't hesitate to ask your questions here. We'll happily help out with all the knowledge we have. Possibly any issues you have can be generalized into solutions that make up valuable additions to the Rapid Development framework that we want to expand on.
