What is Veripeditus?
Veripeditus (from Latin „veritas“ → „truth“ and „pedis“ → „foot“) is a client/server augmented reality gaming engine and framework. It allows writing game „cartridges“ for the server, which it can then run. Players access the game while being outside with a mobile device.
The server component, the framework and the games are developed in pure Python. There are a few design/development principles:
- Game cartridges must be easy to develop with basic Python skills
- The framework and engine must be dynamic enough to allow a large number of different game types to be developed
- The framework must not carry any code that is specific to only a single type of game
- Development is test-driven and test-first
- pylint is to be used and obeyed
- Code must at all times be compatible with Python versions in Debian stable and Debian unstable
Features of the web frontend
The web frontend was originally intended to provide a quick view into the game state on a Veripeditus server. It has, however, developed to become a full-featured client for playing.
Depending on how cool HTML5 turns out to be, it might become the official client and thus the first real-world HTML5 location based real-time game.
The Veripeditus web frontend is developed and tested exactly on Mozilla Firefox as there are no other free browsers that support HTML5 in a reasonable way and can be entrusted with privacy critical data like geolocation of a user.
Mozilla Firefox is available in any serious Linux distribution, as well as for Android from the free F-Droid app store. Rumour has it that there is also a version for iOS.
A testing system is available at http://nightly.veripeditus.org/ . This machine runs the current development version of Veripeditus and is auto-deployed from Git.
It is unstable and might be broken. It will also lose data regularly.
