Starting to figure out mouse events and getting "game pieces" to appear in the correct location on the graphical game board with #pygame. Mouse position calculations also now produce numbers that I can pass to functions previously written for the terminal-based game. In short, once I rewrite a few things, I should have a playable, graphical version of #Maerstanas written in #Python! Not bad for a newb. 🤘
Thanks the feedback. I had more or less made up my mind but thought the poll might be fun.
Tibor Kaputa spends his days developing the Simple range of apps for Android-based OS and makes them available free of charge on F-Droid. I use a bunch of them and they're fantastic. Please consider trying out his apps and making a contribution to support his work:
So I've created a working Python version of my abstract strategy board game, Mǽrstánas, however the output is in the terminal. My goal is to have a nice graphical representation in a Gtk window with players being able to click the board to place a piece. Any suggestions on the best way to accomplish this?
I mainly use #GitKraken with #GitHub because, well, it's easy. The idea of #Codeberg intrigues me though, and I was wondering if anyone could suggest a GUI app that would interface with it in a similar manner as Gitkraken. It doesn't need all the features of course; just the basics will suffice How's #gitg? Or should I just stop being lazy and learn git?
There's a new Master Boot Record 💾 live video out on YouTube.
It's a 4:3 aspect ratio and 256 colors. Because OF COURSE it is! ❤️
When I started learning #Python, I was using #Mu because it was easy, and I wanted something beyond a text editor. I'm now checking out #VSCodium and #Pycharm CE. I have to say that I really like some of the analysis features of the latter to help reinforce style. My code ran, but seeing how I could make it read better or run more efficiently is helpful as a learner.

Want to change your hard drive? Remove these 17 screws, pry off your keyboard, remove 6 more screws, pry off the piece holding the touchpad, remove these 3 short flat washer looking screws...Look! I can see the hard drive! Remove 1 more screw, pull out the hard drive, remove 4 more screws. Change the drive. Now put it back together.
