Palapeli: Library transactions
October 2, 2009
Someone has already asked on this blog yesterday, and thereby pushed me to actually implement them: library transactions in Palapeli. These include import/export (copy puzzle files to and from the library), and deletion (remove puzzle files from the library). The screenshot below illustrates where you can find these actions:
Note though that knowing where these actions are won’t help you much currently. There are exactly 5 Palapeli puzzles in the world, and these are the default library. You cannot import those puzzles (because Palapeli uses puzzle identifiers, which need to be unique), and exporting/deleting puzzles from the default library is not allowed for obvious reasons (exporting default puzzles is pointless, and deleting default puzzles could damage the installation if you have write access to the install prefix).
The last missing piece in Palapeli (pun intended) is the puzzle creator, which will (like it once already was) allow you to create Palapeli puzzles from arbitrary images. I hope that I get this last piece done during the next week. This weekend, you can find me in the audience of this year’s Datenspuren (a conference on privacy and stuff, the name is German and means “data tracks”).
