My intent is to work with Joseph to improve tarot.el. Here are the things I’d like to do:
Initially just the standard deck and a deck consisting of only the major arcana.
I would like more spreads, the celtic cross to begin with.
User shuffling after the deck
To simulate shuffling of a deck the user can make a random seed by wiggling the mouse or whatever.
expose seed_random to lisp
(random t) does a hard-coded seed but for better shuffling we need to expose seed_random to lisp
Insert card images in a buffer in the shape of the spread being used. This shouldn’t be too hard if one compromises on the layouts a bit.
There are currently two variants.
- org mode inlined images
- a svg implementation
The SVG implementation has more graphical promise while the org variant is simpler and allows org mode integration.
allow different card images
I have some home made cards I’d like to use and one can also dowload card images from Wikipedia. Maybe even Pokemon cards, why not :)
currently I include two decks:
- scans of the traditional Tarot de Marseille
- The Jave Tarot which is my personal attempt at a deck
publish tarot.el to ELPA
The main ELPA repo requires FSF copyright but PD ought to be fine. The emacs maintainers need to be consulted.
