Pilas.xo Project

This brings the pilas-engine game development engine to Sugar, adapting it to the needs of the Sugar platform and adding elements to your learning curve.

We seek to facilitate a teaching tool for Python and game development.

This project was developed during the 2011 Sugar Junin Day Sugar Day Junin 2011

Links to the project

  • Pilas: [1]
  • Activity. .XO [2]
  • Code [3]
  • Issues tracker [4]
  • Name of branch 'pilasqt'. Command to take to the branch:
hg clone 
cd pilas/ 
hg update pilasqt


What has been done:

  • Packaging the pilas-engine [5] to run on Sugar.
  • Incorporation of PyQt libraries [6] into the activity
  • Adding widget ninja-ide [7] , to have the interactive shell on the same screen.
  • Generation of file dependencies needed for the project with PyInstaller [8]
  • Creating the pilas.xo activity

To-do immediately:

  • Bug: resize widgets
  • Bug: set focus
  • Documentation of how it is packaged with Qt activity [9] for Sugar
  • define user guidelines and make mockups
  • typical Pippy examples [10]
  • interpreter and code editor tabs
  • option to run in fullscreen or box
  • list of Pilas actions and behaviors
  • help tab
  • persistent options
  • Document examples / startup guide

Future Work

We must turn this into a roadmap ...


  • Trim list of dependencies created PyInstaller, to include only what is needed
  • Incorporating autocomplete and inline help for the ninja-ide
  • Use dbus [11] to communicate with the menu of others
  • Incorporate Sugar persistence [persistence options or code to be developed]
  • Integrate code for the pilas-engine [12] and pilas.xo

Wish list

  • Refactoring to PyCairo [13]
  • Incorporate into the activity the possibility of Sugar sharing
  • Add interactive options on objects (such as in eToys [14] )
