[APPS] Laptop Apps {WIP}

by GamingAssociation39 » Sat Dec 02, 2017 01:02

Bell07 has been helping me out with my laptop mod. He has made it possible to make apps for it. For now there is just a sticky note app and a settings menu. Feel free to make your own apps for the mod. Any requests for developers for the laptop. All apps developed for this mod can be linked here. If it's a needed app for the laptop like a store or a "file manager" it'll be added to the main build of the laptop.

https://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=17910

This is an area to submit your apps for people to download and add to the laptop mod. Basic apps that should be included in a laptop will be added to the main mod.

Any apps done for the laptop should be either posted here or on your own subtopic. I want to try to keep the laptop subforum post strictly for basic apps and for ideas on what to add :)

Should a laptop have the minecoins monetary pressure?
Any other ideas how the laptop can support minecoins?
The Money-idea is tracked in https://github.com/Gerold55/laptop/issues/40

Testers needed before I create the pull request for the app. So please provide the feedback if still something is missing or could be beter


How to install: If you have already the latest laptop app, just download the "TNTsweeper_app.lua":
https://github.com/bell07/laptop/blob/tntsweeper/apps/TNTsweeper_app.lua and save them to the apps folder.
Alternatively download the full TNTsweeper branch https://github.com/bell07/laptop/archive/tntsweeper.zip

I know only the homedecor's arcade Tetris, is on my roadmap already to port them:
https://github.com/Gerold55/laptop/issues/41.
I looked already to the code, it should be not complicated to port the code to laptop, but the laptop-OS needs to be enhanced to handle the timer.
There will be still the limitation https://github.com/minetest/minetest/issues/6353 so it can be playable only by clicking screen buttons.

I did it ;-)

Needs more testing and adjustments before it can be merged to the main mod.
The textures are from "wool" mod, needs to be replaced. There is no icon in launcher. Maybe some other adjustments?

perhaps somebody could take the chess game and modify it so can work with the laptops mod? maybe even a basic algorithm could be added so you can play person x computer

Already requested in https://github.com/Gerold55/minetest-laptop/issues/62

I did a short experiment today and implemented the laptop-support to the realchess mod: https://github.com/bell07/realchess
Image

The implementation is a working prototype. If anyone like to finish the work, feel free to take over the development.
Open issues are:
(1) formspec and infotext are written directly to nodemeta - solved using workaround for infotext, and by framework for formspec
(2) The app uses directly the laptop's nodemeta instead of the "RAM" table
(3) Feedback is trough chat - bad visible if app is open. Feedback should be on screen

(4) Really nice to have is LAN, but this requires some work on the "select opponent from list" app and the synchronization of screen content.

about the miniature minetest in the laptops perhaps something more like
https://zanzlanz.com/MineBlocks
with a view from the side instead of from the top

I couldn't get linked site to work, perhaps it's using Java or something. But side scrollers require 2D physics which would be very inefficient with the current implementation of formspecs. Also sidescrollers are difficult to navigate. Just build a brick wall, and suddenly half the world is no longer accessible.

Could you make a minetest game for the laptop? It would be very meta.

Arcade games requires mostly fast input keys that not possible at the time. The tetris app is on limit. Only on-screen buttons are possible, And during a screen update the button does sometimes not work.
We need something like https://github.com/minetest/minetest/issues/6704 to get the "real" keys working in app. And maybe the https://github.com/minetest/minetest/issues/4153 should be usefull.

On the screen site the often screen refresh's could produce lag trogh tranferring formspec string. But I did not seen the limit so far.

I asked already for laptop mod for the minetest game on laptop >:-)

Any kind of action games are going to be near impossible because formspecs are static and immutable. To simulate any kind of animation requires resending the formspec in its entirety to the client. Hopefully one day we'll see the introduction of dynamic elements and perhaps embedded multimedia as well:

What about something like 2048? Apps apps apps... Chat/messaging that would go straight to other players or maybe only to players on their computers? Some sort of word processing for writing books. A spreadsheet program for household records. Online banking that works with currency mods.

Online banking has been in the talks but we need to find a good currency system for it. The sticky notepad has to be developed more to be a proper word processor. We have an email app done. We are also looking for help to further the apps and development of the laptop mod. Bell07 has been gracious to help me build this mod from the ground up. I've constantly thanked him for all of his help. He has been a big help and has done amazing work with it already. Thank you again bell07 :)
