The Main Karma Package

A set of tools that will help you start working with Karma quickly

This is what is contained in the repository at http://git.sugarlabs.org/projects/karma/

  • Includes script for Karma activity generation, xo bundle generation
  • includes "platform" files, i.e. a basic html5-capable browser that can be used to create an xo bundle
ROOT/                              ( ROOT is not actually a directory name, it just labels the top-level of this package )
   assets/                         ( images, sounds, and text common to karma.html, examples, and the lessons )
          default/

                   images/            
                   locale_name.json   ( karma actually needs the .po file to be converted to .json )

Karma XO bundle

  • similar to E-Paath layout and uses the standard Sugar bundle structure
  • It is still undecided whether karma will default to using Browse which is based on Firefox or Surf which based on webkit (Safari/Chrome). Surf requires that you install the rpms for pywebkitgtk and webkitgtk
 activity/
        activity.info                          (activity info file)

        mimetypes.xml                          (map documents to MIME types)
        text-plain.svg                         (icons for documents, e.g. "text-plain.svg" for "text/plain")

                    lesson_name1/
                    lesson_name2/

Lesson

consists of a single lesson

  lesson_name/
             index.html               ( lesson menu with iFrame for reading.html, css and js are common files, they are inside../css/ and ../js/ respectively)
             tutorial/                 ( contains files related to the tutorial )
             game/                    ( contains files related to the game )
             exercise/                ( contains files related to the exercise )
             assets/
                  {langCode}/         (files specific to langCode: en-US, en, es-MX, es, ....) 
                          docs/

                              teachers note      
  • Notes:
  1. {langCode} represents the lang code and country code
  2. which will be the template language for aseets/docs/* ?, English suggested
  3. suggestion: rename assets/{langCode}/docs/ to docs/{langCode}/ . This is based that at this moment there are no other kind of files under assets/ than 'docs'

Reading, Game and Exercise

consist of a single 'reading', 'game' or 'exercise'

{type}/
