How about having a palapeli-extra-data package

Postby shirish » 2013-08-11 08:40

This is a small project but could be an interesting one, so wanted to know/see if people would be interested on this or not. I dunno how many people have played the game 'palapeli' . Apart from fun for people for all ages it does have lot of educational value esp. for younger kids. The only thing I find missing for it is a huge trache of content which would make it usable out of the box. There are only 5 puzzles in the game. Now I have found a site which has around 1000 odd nice pictures with CC-0 license. Please see http://pixabay.com/en/editors_choice/ for the pictures I am sharing.

If somebody has the time and the skills this is what they could do :-

a. Use some sort of recursive wget or curl and take all the images from the editor's choice and download it at some specific place/directory.

b. Palapeli has 5-6 different slicers, so maybe have a script which randomly selects a slicer and slices them into say 30-50 pieces for people to play with.

c. Pack all the resulting puzzles (.puzzle) files into a .deb file and call it palapeli-extra-data.

d. Find a sponsor and upload it to debian archive and profit.

The only hitch I see is I don't know whether content under CC-0 would be allowed in the archive. Logically don't think it should be any issue as we are using public domain archives.

There are and can be further fun work on this as well :-

a. Have some sort of tag system so properties of an image/puzzle can be used to put them into some sort of categories. For e.g. if we have lot of nature i.e. flowers, butterflies etc. they would be in nature category and things like that. That sort of thing.

Looking forward to see what people think of doing something like that.
