In this project, everyone is free to contribute. To do that, you must first learn how to use The Machine. It's very easy and takes 10min to start making your first template. Of course, you don't have to learn writing code or something technical else. The Machine is here to generate your cards automatically.

Create a new template

To be used by The Machine, each template has a generic JSON configuration file.

The folder structure

A template must be located inside the /templates folder in its own folder.

Here is the folder configuration:

/templates/[template name]/
    -> [template name].json
    -> [template name]-back.jpg
    -> [template name]-variable.jpg
    -> [template name]-code.jpg
    -> [template name]-event.jpg
    -> [template name]-preview.jpg file

This file contains :

  • A preview picture
  • A link to the configuration file
  • The author
  • A changelog

It describe the template spirit

[template name]-*.jpg

Except for the [template name]-preview.jpg file, all of the pictures files are used to generate cards :

  • [template name]-back.jpg is the back design of the card
  • [template name]-variable.jpg is the variable type design of the card
  • [template name]-code.jpg is the code type design of the card
  • [template name]-event.jpg is the event type design of the card
[template name].json

This file structure areas and styles of cards:

  // Author can have a twitter user after @
  "author": "Me @me",

  // Full name of the template
  "name": "Fototse",

  // Default style applied for all areas.
  // Styles are CSS convention
  // You can add all of the Google fonts you want in "font-family"
  "default": {
    "color": "#ffffff",

  // Area of the card title
  // In addition to the styles, you need to add "area" with title position
  "title": {

    // "area" need 2 points location to draw a rectangle
    "area": {
      "y1": 4782,
      "x1": 293,
      "y2": 4961,
      "x2": 1742

  // Same as "title" but for the "MemoryOverflow" brand
  "brand": {

  // Same as "title" but for the card details like Edition and Version
  // Ex: "Fundamentals - F011"
  "edition": {

  // When The Machine create a "Variable" card, it use the [template name]-variable.jpg picture
  // and the "type-variable" configuration area to display card informations
  // Same as "title", you can use an area and styles
  "type-variable": {

  // Same as "type-variable" but for the "Code" cards
  // It use the [template name]-code.jpg picture
  "type-code": {

  // Same as "type-variable" but for the "Event" cards
  // It use the [template name]-event.jpg picture
  "type-event": {

  // Same as "type-variable" but for "The Machine" cards
  // It use the [template name]-the-machine.jpg picture
  "type-the-machine": {

  // Inside informations area, cards can have many text formats
  // Each format is delcared inside "text-style"
  "text-style": {

    // CSS for the default area text
    "default": {

    // CSS for the "code" tag
    "code": {

    // CSS for the "operator" tag
    "operator": {
