1 Phylo Card Generator on Wed Jun 23, 2010 1:44 am

Hello All,

My wife directed me to this site, and I was immediately blown away. I'm a big Magic player and a naturalist, so this project has me very excited. I noticed you needed a card generator for schools to make custom cards, so I wrote the following in PHP with AJAX (so it can be hosted at the server) to get the widget mostly there:

The source code repository for this is located at:

Click on the "Downloads" tab to get a copy of the ZIP file if you'd like to contribute or try it out on your own server. I'm new to GitHub, so if you have any problems, I'll try to learn how to admin them out. : )

Current TODO list for this widget:
  1. Clean Up Terrain Images (I don't know how to do this, we need transparent gifs that look nice like the ones on the cards. Mine are ugly.)
  2. Get those bullet points to display on the card. (I get question marks when I try to do it the way)
  3. Additional Kingdom, Phylum, Classes (Do we want one drop down or three dynamically generated?)
  4. Print Function
  5. Image Uploading
  6. HTML Source Code Output

The first two I'm clueless about, but think I can tackle the others as I find time in the coming months. Are there transparent gifs of the terrains I can reference online?

I can pass on the transparent gif images (they're currently within the zip wordpress file). If people think it's handy to have a dedicated folder at the site that houses the gifs, then let me know - I can also certainly set that up!

I wouldn't mind all the original images too in a zip file if you could manage that. My current versions are were photoshopped blanks from the current cards.
