1 Online web-based card editor on Fri Apr 13, 2012 9:58 pm

Hi all,

A year or so ago I built this (you need a modern browser- Firefox, Safari, Chrome, etc.):
gardaud.github.com/PhyloCC/

(copy-paste the link in your browser, as the forum won't let me paste a direct link as I'm a new member)

Then I kind of forgot about it, and today I realized that I should probably show it off.

The source code is freely available under the MIT license (basically you can do what you want with it as long as my name is included with the license) here:
github.com/gardaud/PhyloCC

It's still incomplete (notably lacks export capabilities), but I figured some motivated person somewhere might be willing to contribute to it at some point. Or maybe I will if I find the time Smile

Cheers!

That looks great! And let me know if you ever want to look more closely at the back end of the Phylo site. We are actually contemplating putting an easy to use editor in the site somewhere, so that kids can make DIY cards more easily (right now, the wordpress backend is still too scary looking for student and teacher alike)!

why did you have to go and do a thing like that? Now I'm going to spend the whole afternoon building a dinosaur deck.

There's a potential dinosaur deck coming. Did you want to help with some of play testing of that one?

Wow, thanks, that's awazing work.

There are some text placement errors when I use it thought. (the copyright signs, the commas between climates, and the number in the circle are a bit misplaced)

Do you think it would be easy to create a version that export to SVG format?

I may be that person....

ac-arcana.github.io/PhyloCC/

I'm not allowed links yet either; same deal.

Please do! Your contributions will be greatly appreciated Smile
The lack of export is due to security measures in HTML5- to my knowledge there is no fully client-side (a property which I would like to maintain) workaround that will work, sadly. I guess the user can just take a screenshot of the page to export Smile

Another thing that the editor is missing is the possibility to make habitat/event/starter cards- that's something you could look into to get started.

(also note that the code hasn't been touched in 3 years- if there has been new rules added to the game since then, the editor may require a code update :-)

I solved this in my version by letting the user select an image from their computer. This prevents cross domain accessing in a way that the image can now be saved as png, bmp, and jpg.

Well I didn't do Habitat cards because they are not a part of the official game rules anymore, but I did write code for event and starter cards.

I've also automated some of the processes (like points are automatically calculated based on the algorithm given on the site).

Check it out! Well not in the literal github sense. I just mean look at it Razz
ac-arcana.github.io/PhyloCC/

I'm still toying with it a little but it is mostly done.

Fantastic, it looks great! Please issue a pull request when you're done :-)
(and good thing you're on top of the rules, I had no clue that habitat cards didn't exist anymore!)

Do you two know how wonderful you are? These are fantastic! I'm just a new player, but thank you so much for going through the trouble; really, it's wonderful. You should get trophies or something.

So awesome. We'll keep an eye out on this thread, but also email Dave Ng (db@mail.ubc.ca) if there comes a point where you want things to show up/be highlighted/be incorporated into the main website.
