Nand-to-Tetris in Minetest for local CoderDojo

I'm thinking of seeing how far I can get through http://nand2tetris.org/ using Mesecons with the Manchester (UK) CoderDojo. If anyone wants to help out or has ideas/experience with the Mesecons logic gates please drop me a line.

How to check if a server is still alive?

Hi,

Is there a way I can ping my server to check that it is still alive an responding? I'm seeking a monitoring solution so I can have a script check every five mins that my server is still running and send me an alert if it isn't.

Thanks,

Dave.

Build floats and put them in a Parade

Hi, I volunteer for our local CoderDojo in Manchester in the UK [1]. We have been given a space in the local library to run drop-in sessions for the Manchester Day Parade [2]. As part of that we are hacking together a Minetest parade. Kids will be able to build floats using Minetest and then put the...

Hi Jeija,

Yes I'm all fine with that. I hope to have some time to work on this over the weekend.

Re: [Mod] Mesecons (= redstone) [GitHub] [minetest-mod-mesec

Hi Jeija, Thanks for the reply. Love2d looks *really* useful. I'll ignore the comment about Lua being good because it is *more* like JS than python ;-) I'm toying with the idea of packaging up a few mods into a Minetest game. Does that make sense? I could then include the minor modifications to the ...

Re: [Mod] Mesecons (= redstone) [GitHub] [minetest-mod-mesec

Hi Jeija, Thanks for the reply. I didn't give the full requirement: I'm actually putting together some ideas to use Minetest in a local code club to teach kids about programming. I'm planning a dice-rolling game. So e.g. I wanted to do something like: x = math.random(1,6) minetest.chat_send_all(&quo...

Mesecons - Post to chat from luacontroller?

Hi,

I'd like to be able to post to the chat window from code in the luacontroller. I can't do,
Code: Select all
minetest.chat_send_all("Hello from Minetest!!!")


...since that is not one of the safe commands. Is there a good way to do this without tinkering with the init.lua file?

Thanks,

Dave.

Re: Scripting Interface Like Raspberry Pi Python?

Thanks @rubenwardy. From my digging so far I've seen using Lua to build mods, but those don't seem to be scripting in the sense of being able to write code separate from the running server to interact with the running server -- unless I'm missing something!

Scripting Interface Like Raspberry Pi Python?

Hi, I run a local code club and due to the recent Bukkit/Minecraft/Microsoft malarkey we're going to have a go with Minetest. We had extensively used the python API to Minecraft ([1] and [2]) to allow kids to write python code that would change a running world. Is there anything equivalent in Minete...

Are you okay with me doing that? Totally! If you are interested I'll send a pull request to GitHub with my changes once I'm at a suitable point. That would be great! Could you seperate it somewhat from the current version so that there is an extra/easier tutorial for kids? I've just submitted a Git...

Thanks. I've got something to work using minetest.after. It is a little hacky as you say. Is there an argument for adding another hook that you can register? Something like minetest.minetest.register_on_newplayerready ?

Send Chat to Player Who Has Just Joined

The wiki says that you can't use minetest.chat_send_player() to send a message to a player who has just joined by registering to minetest.register_on_joinplayer. [1] My question is: so how can you send a message to a player who has just joined? [1] http://dev.minetest.net/minetest.register_on_joinpl...

@Jeija I'd like to tweak and update the tutorial for the young age range that we get at our code club. Are you okay with me doing that?

If you are interested I'll send a pull request to GitHub with my changes once I'm at a suitable point.

Regards,

Dave.

Hi,

I'm looking to use Minetest as an introduction to Lua programming tutorial for a local kids programming group. From a quick look this tutorial seems to be a great starting point. Is it still up-to-date enough with the current Minetest release (0.4.6 at the time of writing)?

Thanks,

Dave.
