A statistics-duelling deck generator using data from wikipedia.
Trop Tumps chooses random categories from dbpedia.org and turns them into (mostly-useless) printable decks of cards representing things from that category, complete with exciting statistics.
Note: Trop Tumps requires Python 3.6+
The simplest way to install Trop Tumps is using pip. With Python and pip installed, Trop Tumps can simply be installed directly from the source repository with:
pip install git+https://github.com/Frimkron/troptumps#egg=troptumps
Later you can uninstall with:
pip uninstall troptumps
If you have installed Trop Trumps, it can be run using the
troptumps.exe on Windows), otherwise the package can be run
python -m troptumps.
The script will connect to dbpedia.org and keep trying to find a suitable
category of things to turn into a card deck. Eventually, with a bit of luck, a
deck_(something) will be written to the current working
directory, containing a printable .pdf file.
To re-generate the PDF for an existing deck (e.g. to change the paper size),
--datadir option to indicate the path of a
deck_ directory. The PDF
will be overwritten.
--help flag to see the full list of options.
