MannyTraining is free software for the computer based
judging in the artistic cycling training. MannyTraining is
based on 'WeBo', a software for evaluation-sheets. The handling is
similar to the popular competition.-Software 'Manny' by Daniel
Kratschmar and myself.
Additional to the print of the judgings as evaluation-sheet or training-sheet you have the opportunity to export your data. So it is possible to do extensive statistic analyses.
I hope, all trainer will have less paperwork using this software. Simultaneous you have the opportunity, to become acquainted with computer based judging. So you as a trainer can practice the key assignments for the activity of commissaires.
Furthermore I want to thank all 'Beta'-testers, especially Rolf Halter for all the helpful remarks.
I would be glad, if you recommend MannyTraining.

WeBo was developed on the oldest possible operating system and at reused hardware. The were performed on different system versions as well as on different hardware. The Linux version has been tested on Ubuntu 14.4 (64-bit) and Debian 5.0 (32-bit). The Windows Version has been tested on XP, 7 and 10.
So there should be a big availability (with current status of
technology) with low hardware requirements.
please proceed as follows:
In the target directory there will be (after copying) a
script/batch 'Training2008'. Please start the application
always with this script/batch 'Training2008'. Only then you
will have all important settings.
The handling of MannyTraining is similar to WeBo. In the
main window you can find all necessary operating elements for the
administration and processing of the data. For the judging will
open a new window.
With MannyTraining you can only do judgings for existing evaluation-sheets. So you have to import the relevant evaluation-sheets from a software for evaluation-sheets (e.g. 'WeBO' ) before!
MannyTraining has the extensive import filter of WeBo. So
you can import and process existing data.
To import data, open the menu 'File'-Import' or click the 'Import'-button in main windows of MannyTraining. In both cases will open a dialogue window. Here you can choose format and name of the file, you want to import.
The necassary steps for the data transfer from the different
software you can read in the documentation of WeBo.
If your past evaluation-sheet-application has the option for XML-Export, you should export the data as XML and import this data in WeBo as XML.
