   images together.


   - Improved Calligra activity: You want to learn your child to write its
   first name in cursive? It's now possible with the new version of Calligra
   activity. You can even build your own words list. You've asked for it,
   it's done!

   are available to learn how to spell and pronounce words in English and
   French.

[IAEP] Free hosting for your Sugarizer Server

2020-11-23 Thread Lionel Laské
Hi all,

We're launching a beta version for our Sugarizer Server Free hosting
service: *Sugarizer Server School Portal*

https://sugarizer.site/

The idea is simple:
- You already know Sugarizer and like it
- You want to use collaboration features of Sugarizer, so you need a
Sugarizer Server
- You want to have your private Sugarizer Server dedicated to your
deployment
- You want to control and manage the work of learners and manage and
analyze all activities on your deployment using Sugarizer Server Dashboard
- You don't have skill or resource to host your own Sugarizer Server

That's fine, the School Portal service is for you!
We offer you for free (yes free!):
- A dedicated Sugarizer Server to host your deployment
- A dedicated DNS address: https://.sugarizer.site to use it
from anywhere (browser, PC, tablets)
- A dedicated admin access to manage stats and activities on your server
- A limited online support (Slack/Mail/IRC) to help you during deployment

It's totally free, the only things we expect from you are:
- *Use it for real!* We don't want to host servers just to play with
Sugarizer Server, it's already easy to play with it on
https://try.sugarizer.org.
- *Give us feedback*: how you use it, what's cool, what's wrong, what's
missing... We need users' feedback to improve Sugarizer.

That's all: you just have to sign up and request a deployment - telling us
how you plan to use it - and we'll create a deployment for you quickly.
Start now, we're not sure to be able to serve everyone.
Find here a step by step tutorial :
https://sugarizer.org/download/ssp_stepbystep.gif

Let me know if you've got any questions.

Regards.

[IAEP] Sugarizer no server mode

2019-06-30 Thread Lionel Laské
Hi all,

Since Sugarizer v1.0, Sugarizer Client [1] and Sugarizer Server [2] are
split and Sugarizer Server need a node.js and a MongoDB server.
Thought this configuration is a prerequisite to implement rich features
like Journal synchronization, collaboration and presence, I know it could
be complex for very small deployments (like testing on a tiny server like a
Raspberry PI Zero).

To solve this issue, I've decided to implement a "No Server mode" that
allow to expose Sugarizer on a web server without Sugarizer Server, so with
just a Apache, NGinx or Lighttpd server.

Of course, the drawback is a limited experience for the user: he/she will
lose all its work when the browser cache will be clear, It's not possible
to use collaboration feature and presence.

This feature is still in alpha and will be release with Sugarizer Client
v1.2.
In the meantime, I will be please to hear feedbacks from you.
More information here [3]

Best regards.

   Lionel.

[IAEP] [Announcement] Sugarizer Server v1.1 is available

2019-05-12 Thread Lionel Laské
Hi all,



I'm proud to announce the version 1.1 of Sugarizer Server [1] the server
side of Sugarizer application [2].



Because Sugarizer Server v1.1 is the foundation for the Sugarizer
Deployment in Saint-Ouen [3], lot of works has be done in this version on
stability and usability.

Specifically, new features in this version are:

   - Classroom handling in dashboard to organize children,
   - Responsive UI for Dashboard to be usable on smartphone,
   - Seed script to create users/classrooms from a CSV file,
   - Improved welcome message on command line: banner, version, settings
   - Improved resilience, detect: missing settings file, port already in
   use, fatal error, …
   - Support for node.js up to 10+, node.js 4 is no longer supported,
   version 6 is the new minimum,
   - Support for MongoDB 2.6+, MongoDB 2.4 is no longer supported, version
   2.6 is the new minimum
   - Go to User journal/Launch activity when clicked on Dashboard chart,
   - Better handling localization on Dashboard,
   - General improvement on Dashboard UI.



Find a detailed change log on [4].



Sugarizer Server 1.1  is available for any computer using Docker or could
be directly installed on Linux, MacOS or Windows. Specific documentation
explain how to deploy on a RaspberryPI, Google Cloud Platform or Amazon Web
Service. See here for more [5].



Note that since Sugarizer v1.0, Sugarizer Application and Sugarizer Server
are split and are updated separately. So like Sugarizer Server v1.0,
Sugarizer Server v1.1 could be use by Sugarizer Application v1.0, v1.1 or
more.



   Lionel.



P.S.: Special thanks for their contribution on this version to Tarun K.
Singhal, Nikhil Mehra, Ashish Aggarwal, Somtochi Onyekwere, Anshuman
Bhardwaj and Ahmed Karaman. And a big thanks too to Saint-Ouen IT staff,
specifically to Armand Delcros.

Hi Simon,

Thanks for your interest on Sugarizer.
If you're running Sugarizer Server into Docker, the file to update is
env/docker.ini (not env/sugarizer.ini).
You could see (and eventually change) this settings here:

Thanks for the count you've done about attendance for each SLOB member. I
respect your work however I must say you're wrong on me at least for the
last meeting. I was there as you could see on the log.  BTW the question is
not about meeting attendance but more about meeting content. I must say
that we spent in 2 previous years lot of time and energy to talk and debate
about travel reimbursement for some members. These debates discouraged lot
of SLOB members and it's probably the reason some of them decided to not
candidate again. I must confess I was questioning myself too: your own
candidacy was one reason to motivate me that something could be changed
(please James, join us too ;-).
Finally, I'm not sure anyone could have doubt about my personal engagement
in SugarLabs during past years.

 Hi SLOBs,

 Jaskirat Singh is traveling to the GSoC mentor summit.  Because
 he's coming from India, he's asked us to prepay a number of expenses, 
 which
 we're happy to do as long as you approve.

 First, he has requested an advance of 43,700.00 INR (about $625) to
 cover expenses related to getting his visa and ground transportation in
 India.  He provided this budget:

 VISA Fees - 11200 INR
 Travelling agent and Consultant charges - 7000 INR
 As i have to travel for the VISA Documentation and Interview to
 other states so for that i have 2 dates consecutively ( VISA 
 appointment
 letter attached), So for that Hotel Charge for 1 night and 2 days - 
 7000 INR
 Meals for this purpose ( 2 days ) - 2000 INR (approx.)
 Taxi fare from my location to the US Embassy - 4000 INR + toll and
 taxes ( approx ).
 As per the rules VISA Documentation and Interview takes place at
 different place and VISA Collection gets issued from the different 
 location
 which is the part of another state, so for that Taxi Fare - 2500 INR
 Taxi fare from Home to Airport - 5000 INR + toll and taxes ( approx
 )
 Taxi fare from airport to back Home - 5000 INR + toll and taxes (
 approx )

 Please let us know whether or not you approve sending him money for
 these expenses ahead of time.  We'll still ask him to provide receipts
 after the fact as required for all travel under our policies.

 Note that, between this advance and the flight he's asking us to
 book, Jaskirat's travel is likely to exceed $1,000, meaning some of it 
 will
 be paid out of Sugar's general fund and not covered by the money coming
 from Google for GSoC.  Please let us know what total travel budget 
 you're
 willing to set for Jaskirat.

 Thank you,

 --

[IAEP] [Announcement] Sugarizer v1.0 is available for your device

2018-05-15 Thread Lionel Laské
Hi all,



I'm proud to announce the version 1.0 of Sugarizer, a taste of Sugar for
any device.



http://sugarizer.org



Finally, five years after the start of the development and after 9 beta
versions, Sugarizer is now officially released.

Added to activities and features that you enjoyed in beta versions, in this
version you will find:

   - Login Screen: Secure your connection to the server with a login and an
   unique password image.
   - Journal synchronization: You will never lost your work again. Let's
   connect to a Sugarizer Server and your journal will be automatically
   synchronized on the server. So you will retrieve your work on your tablet,
   browser or laptop in the same state you left it.
   - Stability: Hours of testing has been done and tens of issues has been
   fixed in this version both in Sugarizer core and activities. You will have
   in your hand the more stable Sugarizer version ever.
   - Standalone Server: No need to change settings of your web server to
   deploy Sugarizer Server. Thanks to nodejs, Sugarizer Server works now as a
   stand alone server. It's also separated from the Client to simplify
   deployment and maintenance.
   - Dashboard: The ultimate tool to handle a Sugarizer Server deployment
   is now here. Inspect users, activities, journals and follow more than 10
   graphs and indicators (top users, top activities, % active users, average
   journal size, …) to have a total understanding of what happens on your
   Sugarizer deployment.
   - Security and privacy: With a password image to access to your content,
   a full HTTPS support and privacy options in settings, your privacy is a top
   priority in Sugarizer.
   - Scratch activity: It's not a dream, the little cat is now directly
   integrated in Sugarizer like Turtle, Jappy and Etoys. Learning how to
   program has never been so simple with Sugarizer.
   - Fototoon activity: The famous Sugar activity is now into Sugarizer.
   Use your pictures, your drawing or images from Abecedarium database to
   create in few minutes an amazing comic strip to share with your friends.
   - Game of Life activity: A game to observe and explore how cells
   interacts and evolves generation after generation.
   - Flip activity: A simple strategy game where you flip "coins" in order
   to get all of them with the same side up.
   - Activity Development Tutorial: What if you decide to create yourself
   an activity? In a 4 hours tutorial you will learn all you need to know to
   explore Sugar UI, Journal, Localization and Presence.



A short animation of these features is visible here:
https://sugarizer.org/download/Sugarizer_v1.0.gif



With the version 1.0, Sugarizer is now ready for your next deployment.



Sugarizer 1.0  is available on your browser [1] but also for your Android,
iOS and Windows device. Download it from : Google Play [2], Amazon Store
[3], Apple Store [4], Chrome Web Store [5], F-droid [6], Windows Store [7]
and if you don't like stores, you could also install it by yourself using
instructions on the Sugarizer website [8].

On Android, Sugarizer could also replace your launcher with Sugarizer OS
[9].

And if you want to deploy Sugarizer Server for your school, follow
instructions here [10].

BTW I'm agree with Caryl, the idea is to use this "honorarium" to defray
his costs. Not considering it as a payment/salary/reward.
I'm not at all a big fan of the use of word "honorarium", it's not the
philosophy of SugarLabs to giving money to someone to represent SugarLabs.
It's even dangerous: in few months a guy could ask us to pay him because he
represented SugarLabs during a conference.

2018-03-07 Thread Lionel Laské
Hi all,

The version 1.0 of Sugarizer [1] - a taste of Sugar on any device - will be
shortly ready to be released.

About 100 strings to translate has been added in this new version (in core
and activities).

Everyone is welcome to contribute to the translation on:

 http://translate.sugarizer.org

Just click on this URL and you could start the translation:
- Suggest new translation without even need to login
- Sign up to create a new language or validate translation

Do not hesitate to ask me for any question/issue.

Best regards.

 Walter,

 As always, I am ready to assist with i18n/L10n efforts as needed.  In
 the past we've had an active Japanese localizer, but it has not been a
 priority language for recruiting.  Efforts like this are wonderful
 opportunities to reach out to an online language community at other
 projects to let them know that their work is destined in real-time for a
 particular audience, which can be quite motivating.  It is also an
 opportunity to recruit new stakeholders to the L10n effort to benefit all.

2017-10-04 Thread Lionel Laské
There is no issue here but it's interesting to see that you've decided to
publicly mailing this without giving the complete Adam explanation.

Here's the missing part:


*Sugar Labs has approved "$550 towards local transport" from GSoC funds:*
*http://lists.sugarlabs.org/archive/iaep/2017-September/020184.html
*


*Walter Bender has asked that his own portion GSoC's (9 non-admins x $500)
/ 11 mentors[*] - 10% SFC - 5% SL = $347.73 be sent to Samson immediately
as well, based on 2016-34 here:*
*https://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Oversight_Board/Decisions#2016-06-10
*

*[*] 11 mentors listed at https://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Summer_of_Coded
 clarified by Walter: "we
had 13 signed up (including the 2 admins who also mentored), and 2 were
inactive/not associated with any projects: José Argüello and Matias Baez".*


*Samson's $347.73 (also based on 2016-34, separately from Walter's) are
already contained in the $550 GSoC funds above.*

*Please wire this $550 + $347.73 = $897.73 cash advance to Samson Goddy
immediately if possible.*

If you read carefully the sentence "*Samson's ... are ALREADY contained in
the $550 GSoC funds above*", you will find the explanation.
I'm completely approve this calculation that seems fair enough considering
the previous motion voted and considering the money and the time that your
trip already cost to all of us.

BTW, feel free to propose a new motion to SLOB if you want more money.

  Lionel.

Re: [IAEP] Sugarizer1° Revisited

2017-09-26 Thread Lionel Laské
When I talked about Labyrinth I talked about LabyrinthJS: the one include
in Sugarizer (and ported in JS by me), not the Sugar version.
Regarding eToys it's already included in Sugarizer. I've worked with Bert
on it. Unfortunately eToys use some extended JavaScript so it don't work
very well on mobile browsers. It's why it's not on the favorite view by
default but it's there, you could test it yourself.
Regarding Scratch 3.0, I've already talked with Scratch guys on that at
Bordeaux. Scratch 3.0 is a full rewrite of Scratch in JS. A pre-version is
already playable here [1], source code is here [2]. I don't think it will
be a hard work to integrate it in Sugarizer when it will be ended.

Regards.

2017-09-24 Thread Lionel Laské
Hi Caryl,

Thanks for your support to Sugarizer.
I remember your Sugarizer Primero idea and as I said to you I'm agree to
help you as possible.

Here is a short description of our Sugarizer deployment this year (I'm CC
Bastien so he could give more information):
- The deployment was in a CM1 class in French so Grade 4 for US.
- The deployment was between February 2017 and July 2017
- We've deployed 25 tablets Lenovo A10-30 tablets with a supplementary
microSD 16Gb card with
- Each tablet has a protection and we later add a headphone and a bluetooth
keyboard for each
- Sugarizer OS - so Sugarizer as an Android launcher - v0.8 was deployed on
all tablets, we've also included 82 Android activities. Most famous are:
GCompris, ScratchJr and Wikipedia. The list was decided by Sandrine, our
education specialist.
- The school had no internet access, we planned to deploy a Sugarizer
Server on a RaspberryPI with a bunch of content but we didn't had time to
finalize it
- The main work done by the teacher with the tablets was:
   * Mind mapping using the Sugarizer Labyrinth activity
   * Scratch using ScratchJR application
   * E-book creation using BookCreator application
- Sandrine had regular contacts with the teacher during the year. We had
few meetings with her too and we had a meeting with parents at the end of
the year

We're starting these days a new deployment in another school with 10
tablets (same model). AFAK these tablets will not be dedicated to a
specific grade  this time.

Best regards.

   Lionel.

2017-09-24 Thread Lionel Laské
-1 for this motion.

Participation to the GSoC Summit is already a privilege. It's fair that
Samson as a mentor could have opportunity to attend to it.
I don't see any advantage for SugarLabs on the Samson side trip, so there
is no reason for SugarLabs to pay for it.

 As has been discussed, Samson would like to have a layover in Boston on

 Nigeria to California on his return from the GSoC summit.

 Please note that this is independent of the request for additional

[IAEP] Translation platform for Sugarizer

2017-09-16 Thread Lionel Laské
Hi all,



What if Sugarizer [1]  - a taste of Sugar on any device - could be
localized in your own language?



To simplify translation efforts from the community, I've unified all source
files to localize for Sugarizer (Sugarizer core, Sugarizer website,
including activities and the future Sugarizer Server dashboard) in a new
platform:



http://translate.sugarizer.org



Just click on this URL and you could start the translation:

   - Just suggest new translation without even need to login
   - Sign up to create a new language or validate translation



Thanks to Weblate [2] the underline tool used for this platform, all new
translation will be integrated to related repos without any other action
for you.



Hope you'll enjoy it.



Do not hesitate to ask me for any question/issue.



Best regards.



 Lionel.

[IAEP] [Announcement] Sugarizer v0.9 is available for your device

2017-09-11 Thread Lionel Laské
Hi all,



I'm proud to announce the ninth version (0.9) of Sugarizer, a taste of
Sugar for any device.



http://sugarizer.org



For this summer Sugarizer version you could find not less than 8
new/improved activities:

   - Abacus activity: The famous Sugar Abacus activity: let's explore
   representations of numbers using different mechanical counting systems
   developed by the ancient Romans and Chinese.
   - Reflection activity: The port of the nice Sugar game designed to learn
   reflective symmetry.
   - ColorMyWorld activity: Explore the world and its countries. Fill
   countries with color you like or use the interactive mode to find location
   of countries on the offline map.
   - Jappy activity: Learn the Python programming language with this fun
   adaptation of the famous Pippy activity.
   - Blockrain activity: A tile-matching game directly inspired by the
   famous Tetris game.
   - QRCode activity: Use easily QR Code with this simple QR Code Generator
   and scanner.
   - XO Editor activity: An editor that display the rainbow of different
   color patterns for the XO buddy icon.
   - Updated TurtleJS activity: Latest version of the famous TurtleJS
   activity is now included in the Sugarizer package.



Other features in this version:

   - Integrated Tutorial:  You want to discover Sugarizer but you don't
   know Sugar. Sugarizer now integrate a tutorial to learn step by step the
   unique Sugar UI interface.
   - Journal Popup: A new popup to browse the Journal and integrate your
   better pictures into the Paint activity.
   - Better iOS support: Few improvements on the iOS support to better
   handle touch.



Sugarizer is already deployed in two schools: when for you ?



As usual, Sugarizer 0.9  is available on your browser [1] but also for your
Android, iOS and Windows device. Download it from : Google Play [2], Amazon
Store [3], Apple Store [4], Chrome Web Store [5], F-droid [6], Windows
Store [7] and if you don't like stores, you could also install it by
yourself using instructions on the Sugarizer website [8].

On Android, Sugarizer could also replace your launcher with Sugarizer OS
[9].



   Lionel.





P.S.: Special thanks for their contribution on this version to Euan Ong
(Abacus activity, Reflection activity, XOEditor activity), Charles Cossé
(ColorMyWorld activity), Sanchit Kapoor (Blockrain activity), Sebastian
Silva (Jappy activity), and Walter Bender (TurtleJS activity).

-1 for the motion.

As James said, I don't think adding more Sugar Labs members will give more
transparency.

Good point to make an open call if there is more volunteer but do a motion
to "force" new members to the committee is not fair.
Plus except if I miss something I didn't seen in this thread a clear
request from Pericherla, Hirish or Ibiam to be a part of the committee.

 I disagree.  As the motion is only adding members to a committee,
 there's no interference in process of the committee.

 By your logic above, the only people who could vote for the motion are
 those whose slot is not expiring; Samson, Ignacio, and Laura.  And
 these three are the committee.  ;-)

Because Adam is our Financial contact, I would like to hear from him before

In the meantime my vote could be considering as "Abstain".

2017-05-19 Thread Lionel Laské
I'm not for the idea:
- It's possible than some OLPC France guys will be present there. They
could present Sugar/Sugarizer to the conference as well. And if they do,
the come from France - compared to Nigeria.
- Are you sure to obtain a Visa for the conference ? French government is
sometimes hard about Visa delivery to avoid illegal immigration.

Hi Caryl,

Thanks for this complete and excellent job.
I'm agree with the last update of Walter.
@Tony, I think the new version is more general. We don't need to mention tools 
in mission, we'll do it in objectives.

Thanks again for this work Caryl. I'm okay to second the motion.

Subject: Re: Motion To Approve 2017 Sugar Labs Mission Statement

Hi, Caryl

In the January 2017 meeting, the SLOBS approved the following motion:

motion: "Sugar is a learning platform based on the constructionist educational 
principles of Jean Piaget, Seymour Papert, Cynthia Solomon, and Alan Kay. Sugar 
Labs is responsible to develop, distribute, and support Sugar with the help of 
a global volunteer community of contributors. Sugar Labs provides Sugar in two 
forms: Sugar for personal computers and XOs and Sugarizer (Sugar Mobile) for 
mobile devices and the Web."

This seems to satisfy the definition of a mission statement.

Hello All,


This is long, but it needs to be done…


It’s time to “fish or cut bait” as they say. We need to move on with the 
Mission Statement and Goals for Sugar Labs. I am submitting a Mission Statement 
as a motion to be considered for approval at the April SLOB meeting. Then, with 
that in hand, we can move on to settle on 4-5 broad reaching goals to go with 
the Mission Statement to be voted on in May or June.  Specific objectives would 
come after that.


Most of the things people have put on the wiki are neither a mission statement 
nor are they goals. They are Objectives. But most of them lack the specifics to 
be considered a true objective.


So… what do we need in a Mission Statement?


First let’s take a peek at the current one… yes we do have one and I found it 
sitting right at the beginning of the Sugar Labs website 
(<https://www.sugarlabs.org/>https://www.sugarlabs.org/)


At Sugar Labs, we make a collection of tools that learners use to explore, 
discover, create, and reflect. We are non-profit and led by volunteers. We 
distribute these tools freely and encourage our users to appropriate them, 
taking ownership and responsibility for their learning.


Not bad for starters! Now let’s take a look at that Wikipedia says about 
Mission Statements:


Definition:

A mission statement is a short statement of an organization's purpose, 
identifying the scope of its operations: what kind of product or service it 
provides, its primary customers or market, and its geographical region of 
operation. ... The purpose of a mission statement is to focus and direct the 
organization itself.


Here is the Mission Statement I posted last month, based on an excellent 
document Walter had written about Sugar Labs:


Sugar Labs Mission Statement:

The mission of Sugar Labs is to reach global learners (and educators) with 
powerful free and open source educational tools to help them in engage 
Constructionist learning.

So, with a minimum of editing, we can combine the two to get this:

Sugar Labs Mission Statement:

The mission of Sugar Labs is to reach global learners and educators with a 
collection of tools that enable them to explore, discover, create, and reflect. 
We are a non-profit and led by volunteers. We distribute these tools freely and 
encourage our users to appropriate them, taking ownership and responsibility 
for their learning.


O.K. Let's see if that meets the criteria in the definition of a Mission 
Statement as stated above.

  *   purpose... check! The whole statement
  *   scope of operations... check! Global
  *   kind of product or service or service... check! Learning tools 
distributed freely
  *   primary customers or market... check! Learners and educators
  *   geographical region... check! Global


Therefore, I propose that the following motion be considered at the April SLOB 
meeting:

_


The 2017 Mission Statement for Sugar Labs shall be as follows:


The mission of Sugar Labs is to reach global learners and educators with a 
collection of tools that enable them to explore, discover, create, and reflect. 
We are a non-profit and led by volunteers. We distribute these tools freely and 
encourage our users to appropriate them, taking ownership and responsibility 
for their learning.

Now, some sample mission statements from a few well known organizations and 
businesses. You will note that some of the biggest and most successful have 
very simple, concise mission statements:

Re: [IAEP] [SLOBS] 2017 Goals for Sugar Labs

2017-04-09 Thread Lionel Laské
Hi Walter,

Thanks a lot for this long proposal. Great to hear you on that.
I think that it's more a Sugar history than a goal/vision but it's good to
read it from a guy that was the major contributor of the history.

BTW I'm not agree with your goals.
My view is that it's not a good idea to limit Sugar/SugarLabs to makers.
We can't target a so small market:
- RaspberryPI ? RPI is a great tool. I personally used 2 RPI weekly for my
personal usage. But it's a tool for geeks not for learners. It could be a
good device as server (we're using it in classroom in France and in
Madagascar and it's good for XSCE too) but it's a very poor tools for
children: no screen, no keyboard, no mouse, not even a power adapter. It's
just a board ! So I don't see the interest of Sugar on it.
- Trisquel ? Probably a nice Linux distribution but how many users ? Not at
all a largely distributed distribution like Fedora or Ubuntu.  Why doing
effort on it ?

I can't understand you even mention Windows support in your goals: just
99,9% of the PC market ! So if you're a Windows user you can't be a target
for SugarLabs ? Plus, regarding devices: we should be better on touch
devices because tablets is the favorite learning tools in classroom today,
not PC. It's why Android (80% of the tablet market) and iOS are so
important in my mind. We should go where users - children/teachers - are !

We can't target makers just because Sugar has synergy with them and because
we hope they help us to spread the world tomorrow.
Our goals should be to deploy Sugar as a mainstream solution for everyone
not a solution for a bunch of geeks. It's the only way to expand the Sugar
community. You told about OLPC: the goal of One Laptop Per Child was to
give a laptop to EVERY child, our goal should be to give Sugar to EVERY
child too. The marketing effort should be in that way, no need to do
marketing for makers, I'm sure they found us themselves.

 Lionel.

P.S.: Regarding Sugarizer maintainability, it's just your opinion. Not sure
it's the opinion for 20 others Sugarizer contributors. I don't think you
could judge Sugarizer maintainability only because you've not successfully
updated TurtleJS activity inside. I don't have success running TurtleJS on
my side and had a very bad experience when trying to Sugarize it, it's not
a reason for me to give a judgement about TurtleJS maintainability.

I'm agree with the idea to think to the long-term but I think we can't

So +1 to process this TSR considering we can't process other requests

[IAEP] Sugarizer dev platform is now open

2017-03-20 Thread Lionel Laské
Hi all,



Currently, Sugarizer is released about one time by year.

I know that it's slow but it take us lot of time to test and package new
features and activities on all supported platforms.



To give you  a faster view of change in Sugarizer, I've decided to open a
new server dedicated to the development branch.



So, the branch "master" [1] is now the stable and ready-to-production
version and could be tested on http://try.sugarizer.org

And the branch "dev" [2] is now the development version (*) - and
potentially unstable - and could be tested on the new
http://dev.sugarizer.org



If you're curious you could discover today on the dev branch: the great
ColorMyWorld activity from Charles Cossé and the nice port of XOEditor,
Reflection and Abacus activities by the GCI student Euan Ong.



Sugarizer is growing every day: stay in touch !



Best regards from France.



  Lionel.



[1] https://github.com/llaske/sugarizer/tree/master

[2] https://github.com/llaske/sugarizer/tree/dev

(*) So if you're a developer and want to contribute to Sugarizer, send your
PR to the dev branch

Re: [IAEP] Resubmission of Proposed Project for Sugarizer1°

2017-03-03 Thread Lionel Laské
Hi Caryl,

Very nice.
I'm fully encourage your proposal.
Sugarizer is not my tool, or the tool of OLPC France. Everyone should be
able to appropriate Sugarizer itself and transform/adapt it for its needs.
That's the way Open Source Software works and Sugarizer definitively lack
of tester feedbacks. So welcome Sugarizer 1° !
I will support it technically as far as I could.

Regards.

  Lionel.

Re: [IAEP] [SLOBS] Sugar Labs 2017 Budget

2017-02-25 Thread Lionel Laské
Hi all,

+1 Caryl
I can't imagine a budget without a project proposal. Money could be a way
to solve issues. The issue could not be to spend money.
And yes, the most important thing is feedbacks from the field. It's why it
was super important to me to launch the first OLPC France Sugar deployment
in Madagascar 8 years ago and the first Sugarizer deployment this year.
More: today, every Sugarizer feature I'm thinking about is because of
feedbacks or issues we raised during our Sugar deployment.

I'm proud to see reference to Sugarizer in your previous exchange. Thanks
all for that.
By the way, Sugarizer need developers more than money.
Give me two tokens for the incoming GSoC and it will be more than all
badges!

Best regards from France.

Re: [IAEP] [SLOBS] [Sugar-devel] Google Summer of Code 2017

2017-01-22 Thread Lionel Laské
Hi all,

SugarLabs participation in GSoC is very important. Previous GSoC give me
lot of opportunities to improve Sugarizer activities/features in a very
impressive way. I don't have Sugarizer projects proposal for GSoC 2017 for
the moment but I will certainly have projects to submit.

BTW I think that we must be very cautious on:
- Project selection: one project is one token, i.e. one student working for
us during months. We can't lost a token opportunity for a project with few
interest or with few chance to go to its end. We should have an objective
view on project from last years: how many projects are really integrated
into Sugar/Sugarizer today ?
- Mentor selection: a mentor should be someone with experience on its
subject. He must perfectly know the project, the project goal and must have
a very good technical knowledge of its subject. So, sorry to say that not
everyone could be a mentor.

May be it could be interesting to imagine a sort of selection process for
projects, then for mentors.

Best regards for France.

Lionel.

Thanks all.

@Walter, PR is the best way.
More precisely: clone Sugarizer, replace Turtle Blocks code by the new one,
if possible test on all browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, EDGE) to ensure
portability on all devices, then PR.

Re: [IAEP] [Sugar-devel] [Announcement] Sugarizer v0.8 is available for your device

2017-01-06 Thread Lionel Laské
Any Android applications could work into Sugarizer OS.
Two applications that we love here:
- GCompris: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.gcompris
- ScratchJR:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.scratchjr.android

The idea of Sugarizer OS is to mix Sugarizer activities with Android
application that you love and that you can't find in Sugarizer.

But of course it's also a good opportunity to integrate "standard"
application like Chrome or Google Play into Sugarizer so you could launch
it without leaving Sugarizer.

Lionel.

   - Updated Etoys activity: Latest version of Etoys is now included in the

Re: [IAEP] Priority languages to translate Sugar

2016-07-17 Thread Lionel Laské
Hi Caryl,

Each activity could use it's own framework. I don't think some use
bootstrap.
BTW bootstrap usually take care of HTML contents, most activities use
Canvas elements instead so I'm not sure it could help.
Doing responsive design is always a challenge.

All Sugarizer activities work on mobile. I'm checking it before each new
release.
So activities are usable but it's true that activities are not fully
optimized for mobile.

Re: [IAEP] [SLOBS] [Sur] [Sugar-devel] [SLOB] Motion (1 of 2) GSoC Stipends

2016-06-08 Thread Lionel Laské
-1

I'm considering that, like in others GSoC organization, all GSoC funds from
Google must stay at SugarLabs.

   Lionel.

P.S.: I'm concerning about the increasing of number of motions. I'm not
sure we need motion for everything. Lot of initiatives could be launched
without any motion. We're at the point where we're doing motions to manage
motions ! Do I need to propose a motion to stop doing motions ?
Hopefully I've not asked a motion three years ago to start the Sugarizer
initiative...

Guess I don't need to say that it's exactly my though :-)
FYI, I've qualified Sugarizer on Windows 10.
I've tested it both on Windows 10 Desktop and on Windows 10 Mobile.

A preview video is available here [1].
If you're interested to test it, you could generate yourself the package
from the Cordova command line using instructions here [2] (replace
"android" by "windows").

It will be available on Windows Store in the next version.

2016-05-07 Thread Lionel Laské
Disagree.

Thought I understand that 500$ is lot of money for some people, I think
that GSoC is also a way for SugarLabs to raise money. Because we don't ask
for an annual fee to member (like other association, for example OLPC
France), it's even the only way to hope for a regular contribution.

Best regards from France.

2016-05-07 Thread Lionel Laské
Sorry to be once again the devil's advocate but I think SugarLabs has no
resource to pay for a Financial Manager. We can't both support the cost of
a SFC and the cost of a Financial Manager.
I think the job done by SFC and nice reports by Adam and Laura (and others)
are enough for a small organization - without regular budget - like
SugarLabs.
If we need to have a Financial Manager so we need to think seriously to
exit of SFC.

Best regards from France.

Re: [IAEP] [SLOBS] [SLOB] Yoruba i18n motion

2016-05-07 Thread Lionel Laské
Disagree.

I don't see any evidence how Yoruba localization could increase the size of
the Sugar community. I think we mix here two things:
- a localization project without any clear need on the field,
- a legitimate wish to thank an active and loyal contributor (Samson)
I can't be agree with the first one (including within the Trip Advisor
deal): it's time and money for nothing.
I'm agree with the second one but may be we could imagine other ways to do
that, i.e. ask Samson to work on more useful tasks. For example help on
initiative like the Tony one to invent an auto localization process.

Best regards from France.

On Sugarizer, I would like to specifically mention the work of Shirsh Zibbu
on Moon Activity and the work of Vishal Batchu on Speak Activity. Both had
done a prototype almost ready to be deployed.
So I plan to integrate both activities in the next Sugarizer version. If
they are agree to help, I will be please to work with them on that in
coming weeks.

Re: [IAEP] [SLOBS] [SLOB] meeting reminder and some open issues to discuss

2016-05-02 Thread Lionel Laské
Hi all,

Would like to add a quick motion to ensure we share the Vision Proposal
2016 [1].
Not the goal part of the page, at first.

Best regards from France.

 Apparently we did not actually get all the votes necessary to approve a
 motion to pay Devin a $500 stipend for his time taken away from his Day Job
 to help with the Turtle Blocks workshops at the Constructionism Conference.
 The motion was made and voted on at the 2015-12-07 meeting [1]. There were
 only three votes cast. (I thought four had been cast.) There was no
 objection raised at the time and Devin did take a week off from work to
 attend the meetings and run the workshops. I'd like to reopen this motion
 with the new board and take a vote.

 Motion: offer Devin U. an honorarium ($500) to compensate him since he
 needed to take a week off from work to run two Turtle/Music Blocks
 workshops at the Constructionism Conference. The funds would be allocated
 from the Trip Advisor grant which are in support of promoting and advancing
 Turtle Blocks around the world.

 Please respond ASAP, as I feel we need to clarify the situation and not
 leave Devin hanging.

 Adam, in the future, it would be nice to get a heads up when you find
 mistakes and not just catch them by noticing a change to a wiki page.

 Also, I need clarity regarding the Trip Advisor grant. I believe that
 the oversight board has previously granted me approval to spend grant money
 on workshops under the conditions that (1) I inform the committee of my
 plans and (2) I don't exceed the budget. Apparently this is not the
 understanding of some of you and not the understanding of the SFC.

 Motion: Walter, as PI of the Trip Advisor grant, will inform the SL
 oversight board of his plans for workshops that fall under the guise
 promotion of Turtle Blocks but otherwise has discretion in organizing and
 funding these events, within the budget constraints of grant and the travel
 guidelines of the SFC.

 Please take action on this ASAP as I am many months without
 reimbursement for travel for several workshops.

 FWIW, the large proportion of the travel and expenses associated with
 the workshops to date has been paid for by third parties. I've been able to
 stretch the budget quite far.

 thank you for your attention.

 regards.

Re: [IAEP] [SLOBS] Motions to create position of Translation-Community Manager

2016-04-06 Thread Lionel Laské
Sorry to say that I don't add my vote to the motions:

I move that the SugarLabs Oversight Board approve the position of
Translation-Community Manager as described at
http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Translation-Community_Manager.
-1

I further move that Chris Leonard be named to this position effective
immediately.
-1

I further move that the Translation-Community Manager be paid a stipend of
$1000/month.
-1

I really admire the work done by Chris Leonard from the beginning, no
question about its motivation, capacity and dedication to the project. It's
the better guy for the job.

I'm just considering that the limited resources of SugarLabs should be
dedicated in priority to increase the community and I'm not convinced at
all that translation is the better way. At least the ratio cost to invest
(12000$/year) vs result in community improvement is not in favor of the
motion for me. In short: money could be better invest elsewhere (marketing,
events, school kit, ...).

Best regards.

Lionel.

I guess that UTC 15h00-17h00 should be okay on most timezone.
I can manage it if we plan meetings one or two weeks before.

[IAEP] [Announcement] Sugarizer v0.7 is available for your device

2016-01-12 Thread Lionel Laské
Hi all,



I'm proud to announce the seven version (0.7) of Sugarizer, a taste of
Sugar for any device.



http://sugarizer.org



This version is mainly focus on activities, so you could find not less than
8 new/improved activities in this version:

   - Paint activity: this famous drawing activity include everything you
   could expect: change size, pen/fill color, a set of stamps, text font,
   templates, … Plus it's fully compliant with presence so multiple user could
   draw at the same time on different devices.
   - Memorize activity: play to the memory game with letters, sum or sounds
   or create your own memory game like you're doing today on Sugar. Here also,
   play with your friend through the network.
   - Calculate activity: a fully functional calculator with basic
   arithmetic operations but also trigonometry function, base handling and
   event graphical capacity.
   - Record activity: Once again a "must have" activity. From your browser,
   tablet or smartphone, take a picture, a video or audio and share it with
   your friends.
   - Physics activity: A JavaScript port of the famous Sugar Physics
   activity. Simulate effect of gravity using a set of forms (circle, square,
   triangle, …) and move your device to bring it the scene to life depending
   of the device orientation.
   - Labyrinth activity: Mindmap and organize your ideas with this web
   version of the Sugar Labyrinth activity. Format and change each item color,
   size or font and export it in a printable image.
   - KA View activity: Browse and play directly into Sugarizer more than
   500 of the famous Khan Academy videos in English, Spanish and French.
   - TurtleJS activity: Command without limit your Logo-inspired graphical
   "turtle" in this reinvented version of the famous TurtleArt activity.



As usual, Sugarizer 0.7 is available on your browser but also for your
Android or iOS device. Download it from : Google Play [1], Amazon Store
[2], Apple Store [3], Chrome Web Store [4], F-droid [5] and if you don't
like stores, you could also install it by yourself using instructions in
the Sugarizer readme file.



Sugar on any device is not the future, it's now ! Join us to spread the
world with Sugar !



   Lionel.



P.S.: Special thanks for their huge contribution on this version to Michaël
Ohayon (Paint, Memorize, Record and Calculate activities), Walter Bender
(TurtleJS activity) and Piotr Antosz - GCI student (new web site).

[IAEP] [Announcement] Sugarizer v0.6 is available for your device

2015-04-13 Thread Lionel Laské
Hi all,



I'm proud to announce the sixth version (0.6) of Sugarizer, a taste of
Sugar for any device.



http://sugarizer.org



Main features in this new version:

   - Neighborhood view and presence : Sugarizer now include the
   neighborhood view to allow users to see other users connected on the same
   server and share activities with them. Only one activity currently use this
   feature: Chat Prototype from Suraj. Launch the activity, share it, then
   your friend could join the chat whatever device they use. Note that the
   Sugarizer presence API need a Sugarizer server (remote or local). A default
   service is available on server.sugarizer.org
   - New TamTam Micro activity: Let children (re)discover the joy to play
   with the TamTam activity and hear more than 70 different sounds.
   - iOS support: Yes, Sugarizer is now available too on this devil but so
   popular platform. Launch the Apple Store, look for Sugarizer [1], download
   it and voilà Sugarizer is now ready to run on your iPad or your iPhone.
   - Chrome App support: Are you a fan of Chrome OS or are you just a
   Chrome user that don't want to waste time into complex install procedure ?
   That's right. With Sugarizer as Chrome App, Sugarizer is now one click far
   from your Chrome environment. Just go to the Chrome Web Store [2], download
   it and Sugarizer is ready to start with full features without impact on
   your work environment. And of course, it works on any platform where Chrome
   is available.
   - F-Droid support: F-Droid is the repository of Open Source applications
   for Android. No compromise: only open source applications - compiled from
   source - are allowed inside. Sugarizer had to be there.
   - Device integration: Sugarizer on any device don't mean bad integration
   with hosting device. In Sugarizer 0.6, Puneet show you in the Cordova
   activity (pick in from the List view) a Sugar Web developer could handle
   device features (accelerometer, camera, network, …) in its activity.



Of course for your Android and Firefox OS devices, Sugarizer 0.6 is
available too on all others app stores: Google Play, Amazon Store and
Firefox Market Place. And if you don't like stores, you could also install
it by yourself using instructions on the Sugarizer website.



Other features of Sugarizer 0.6:

   - Icon activity color in Journal and Home view now vary depending of
   last user color
   - An initialization screen let you set preference at startup
   - Sugarizer automatically detect language at first launch
   - server.sugarizer.org is now the default server
   - Igbo and Yoruba localization
   - Arabic localization (*)
   - Japanese localization (*)



Stop talking about Sugar future, let's write it with us ! All contributors
are welcome.

Re: [IAEP] [Sugar-devel] This list in need YOUR help

2015-03-31 Thread Lionel Laské
Hi,

Just to share OLPC France experience on the same issue with mailman on our
private mailing list.
We had lot of junk mails received every day on this mailing list from
mailbox that didn't subscribe to the list.
Manual administration of this is probably a full time job for a moderator
so days after days this mails saturated our server and we had a crash (no
place left on the disk) every two month.

The problem was solved when we decided to check the option Discard held
messages older than this number of days. in the list settings. We choose
to autodiscard held mails after 8 days. Of course there is a risk to loose
some mails but the sender is notified so we could hope that he had time to
contact a member directly.

Just my two cents.

  Lionel.

 There is a number of reasons a message could wind up in the moderation
 queue.

 If it is over 256k. If you send it from a different address than the one
 you are subscribed.

 The one that bit me, was that mailman thought my email was some kind of
 administrative email (subscription request or something).

 It also seems like some people have been automatically unsubscribed
 against their will because of some kind of bounce email automatic

 Yes, this is an irritating problem.  The problem can be seen by a list

Re: [IAEP] Planning for the future (Samuel Greenfeld)

2015-02-24 Thread Lionel Laské
Hi Samuel,



Thanks to share your vision. I think you're right, SugarLabs lack of a
clear long-term vision that we could share with all contributors. Hope that
your mail we'll give us opportunity to share our thought on that.

Here's mine.



If Sugar want live, it can't be limited to a niche platform: neither the
XO, neither a Fedora computer. I'm sure we're all convinced that the better
platform for education is a computer but today all others decision maker in
the world seems to think that it's a tablet or even a mobile.



So the question is how we could answer to requests for these new platforms
thought keeping our roots: an unique UI for children, a reflection tool
(Journal), a collaborative platform (Presence) and the most important -
free an open source contents.



My point of view is that we must not invest time to think how we could be
compliant with a new platform, we need to think in another way: how we
could port Sugar on Any platform ? Any computer (from the bigger one to the
tiny one: raspberryPI), any laptop, any tablet, any mobile.



And the answer is simple: web technologies allow every device to run very
complex software. It's the only solution to be compliant with any device.
It's where we need to put our investments.



It's why I've got a personal engagement on Sugar for the Web from years:

   - First to allow Sugar activities to be written using web technologies.
   From Sugar 0.100 thanks to Sugar Web, every developer could write new Sugar
   activities using exclusively HTML5/JavaScript - without any line of
   Python/Gtk.
   - Second to create a Sugar container for the web - named Sugarizer -
   that could host any Sugar Web activities and that reproduce the unique
   Sugar features: Sugar UI, Journal and Presence.



Sugar for the Web is not the Sugar successor, Sugar for the Web is a way to
do a transition from Sugar for the XO to an universal version of Sugar that
could run on any device so that could be used by any children anywhere on
the world.

Most important with Sugar for the Web we don't leave alone our current base
of Sugar users, with Sugar 0.100+: any new Sugar Web activities will be
usable both on Sugar on old devices and Sugar on new devices.



With Sugarizer and Sugar Web, Sugar for any device already exist. But to
become a reality, we need to invest more on it:

   - Have a clear roadmap of transition between old Sugar activities to
   Sugar Web activities.
   - Convince a more important community to join us. Sugar is the better
   learning platform, with Sugar for the Web, it should be easy to convince
   other communities to help us. I think specifically to Mozilla because they
   have a clear engagement on web and open source and Google because of their
   wish to embrace education with Chrome. We need to ask help from them.
   - Experiment: we need to start deployment as soon as possible to
   demonstrate. At OLPC France, we've got ambition to start a first
   experimental deployment of Sugarizer before the end of the year.



All of us spent years on promoting the Sugar philosophy. We have the choice
to look backward or look forward. My choice is clear: with Sugar for the
Web I will give to every children the same opportunities I gave to XO users.


Best regards from France.


   Lionel.

 Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8

 Disclaimer: The following are my views, and not the views of my current or
 past employers.

 About a year ago, I privately expressed concern that Sugar needed to ensure
 it had long-term sponsorship and a long-term user base.

 Since then, both the historical US-based OLPC organization and Sugar Labs
 have not publicly said much about their long-term plans, with OLPC also
 being rather closemouthed about the present.

 Meanwhile contributors silently leave.  It is hard to justify volunteering
 when you don't know who will benefit besides mysterious customers.

 Everyone seems happy to cite their past successes.  No one corrects the
 press when they report stale information in their favor.


 There is no shame in being a smaller project.  But we need to ask the hard
 questions.  With Sugar, getting users and developers for a niche platform
 is a problem.  With OLPC, everyone seems to love repeating the 2 or 2.5
 million number for laptops historically shipped.  Rarely is it asked how
 many XOs been shipped in the past year or are in active use  where.

 Sugar  OLPC need to come up with long-term strategies.  While there is
 nothing public I have seen stopping One Education's XO Infinity from
 running Sugar, I haven't seen anything stopping it from running anything
 else.  It is also unclear how much One Education is willing to engage with
 the 

[IAEP] XO Infinity ?

2015-02-17 Thread Lionel Laské
Hi all,

As some of you, I've seen: https://medium.com/road-to-infinity

Something that look like to a new XO concept with an Android OS proposed by
OLPC Australia. Just my guess.

Is someone have more information on this ?
Is it related to OLPC Foundation ?
Is it related to Sugar ?

Please share with us.

[IAEP] Khan Academy videos offline

2015-01-30 Thread Lionel Laské
Hi all,

The question about how to get videos from Khan Academy in any language was
asked several times on this list.
We planned this year to deploy offline Khan Academy videos in French to our
Nosy Komba deployment. So I've worked with Bibliotheque Sans Frontiere to
get French videos.
They suggested me to use KA Lite [1], a software dedicated to install a
offline Khan Academy server.
BTW it's slightly intrusive and need some installation. So I've write a
script to explore and extract only videos URL. You could find it here [2].
The result of the script could be seen here [3] as a tree or here [4] as a
single list.

Hope it could help.

Best regards from France.

Re: [IAEP] [UKids] Discounted XO Tablets at Amazon

2014-11-29 Thread Lionel Laské
Hi Caryl, hi George,

Any Android application from Google Play could be installed on the XO
tablet. However, because access to Google Play could be disable from the XO
Learning Platform interface you could need to download it from the parent
account then authorize the new application explicitly in any child account.
You could find video tutorials to do that on [1].

Regarding Sugarizer on the XO Tablet, yes it could be installed from Google
Play. Thanks Caryl to mention it.
To be honest, I must confess however that because XO Tablet use an old
Android version, some issues could happen in some activities.

Best regards from France.

 Hi George,

 Sugarizer is now available at Google Play. It is also on Amazon Apps (for
 Kindle devices), and the Firefox marketplace.  I am guessing that if any
 apps can be loaded from Google Play onto the XO Tablet, Sugarizer will be
 too.

 I may have loaded something when I was playing with the tablet in the
 summer of 2013, but I'm not sure. Someone will need to try to find out. The
 device is supposed to be a regular Android tablet when it isn't on the
 Dream screen.

 If someone else has one, maybe they can test it out and let us all know
 what the possibilities are for adding other Android apps.

 I'd be careful about promising that anything can be loaded on the android
 side.

 My experience playing with this device is that the loader is signed, and
 locked. And vivitar refused to give me a key, or a procedure to unlock,
 that would permit me to load any arbitrary code.

 Hi Folks,

 While browsing for Amazon's Black Friday deals I came across the XO tablet
 (not the same as a regular XO) being offered for $79 with free shipping (if
 you have Amazon Prime). It is definitely worth that much. It is basically a
 7  Vivitar tablet with a green skin to make it an XO. I don't think
 much about the educational software that is on it, but my
 almost-4-year-old granddaughter finds plenty of things to keep her amused.
 Here's a link to the listing…. it is only offered at that price through

 Sugar is not on the tablet, however you should be able to run OLPC
 France's Sugarizer version on the Android side of the tablet. Here is a
 link to a demo of Sugarizer and info on how to get it as an app:

 P.S. The camera feature of the tablet is excellent.

Re: [IAEP] [UKids] Sugarizer on Kindle Fire

2014-10-18 Thread Lionel Laské
Hi Caryl,

Regarding Kindle and Maze, I'm surprised about that. A guy from Amazon give
me a Kindle HDX 8.9 (first generation) so I've tested on it and it works.
Are you sure you're touching on the right place ? In the nice Manuel Maze
Web activity, you don't have to touch near the little face. The activity
compute the direction between your touch and the little face to decide
where you want to go.

Regarding Spanish version, thanks to Alan and Ignacio, it's already inside!
Just change settings/language with a long touch on the buddy icon.

Regarding iOS, I will be please to have support here. In fact as I said to
you, iOS porting should not be technical so complex. Sugarizer is just
HTML5/JavaScript and I'm using PhoneGap to package it as an Android app.
PhoneGap works too on iOS (lot of iOS app in the app store are PhoneGap
apps) so it could be used to package it as an iOS app. Of course some
testing should be done on Safari, and PhoneGap packaging need also to be
done on a Mac because unfortunately, Apple require a Mac to generate iOS
application.
I don't have easy way to access or work on Mac for a long time so it's
difficult for me to work on it. But if you know someone that have a
HTML5PhoneGap background and have a Mac, I will be please to help on this.

More globally Sugarizer porting on other devices just require to have the
required device and do some packaging, testing and eventually some minor
adaptation. My personal road map include porting to Raspberry PI (work in
progress), Windows 8 and Windows Phone. ANY device I said :-)

   Lionel.


2014-10-17 22:54 GMT+02:00 Caryl Bigenho cbige...@hotmail.com:

  Hi…

 I just downloaded Sugarizer to my Kindle Fire. It looks great! It will
 take me a while to test stuff.

 I have, however, played a bit with Maze and find that the touch screen of
 the Kindle is not sensitive enough to always make the little face go in the
 intended direction. Sometimes it goes in a completely different, and
 incorrect direction. Is there any way to decrease (or maybe increase) the
 size of the sensitive spots on the screen so the errors won't occur? I'm
 guessing that the spots are too big and overlap a bit on the Kindle screen
 and that is why the problem is happening.

 On another note… we have a lot of folks on the list that could help get
 Sugarizer adapted to Spanish. Lionel, would you like to set up a project
 for that? I can help recruit people to assist. and can help with it myself.

 Still hoping to get to the point where I can help get an IOS version
 going. I will have to finish EdX's CS50 class from Harvard first and it
 looks like it will take me until sometime next year to cover it all. I
 figure it could be my Final Project for that class.

[IAEP] [Announcement] Sugarizer v0.5 is available for your device

2014-10-17 Thread Lionel Laské
Hi all,



I'm proud to announce the fifth version (0.5) of Sugarizer, a taste of
Sugar for any device.



http://sugarizer.org



I've decided to put the focus on this version on three majors points:

   - Responsive Design: to ensure that Sugarizer could work on any screen
   size, from the smallest smartphone screen (320x480) to the bigger tablet
   screen (2560x1600).
   - Android support: I've done a huge work to ensure that Sugarizer and
   activities work well on Android so I've fixed lot of issues related to
   Android limitation. Of course due to diversity of the Android ecosystem,
   some issues could still exist on Android versions lower than 4.2.
   - Firefox OS support: Thanks to Mozilla foundation that help me on that,
   Firefox and Firefox OS are now #1 platforms for Sugarizer. Sugarizer has
   been tested successfully on Firefox browser and on several Firefox OS
   devices (Keon, Peak, Flame).



Finally, because it's very important for us that Sugar/Sugarizer could be
accessible to every users, I've packaged and published Sugarizer on three
major app stores:

   - Google Play:
   https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.olpc_france.sugarizer
   - Amazon Store: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NKK7PZA
   - Firefox Market Place: https://marketplace.firefox.com/app/sugarizer/
(soon)

Of course, you could also install it by yourself using instructions on the
Sugarizer website if you don't like stores.



Other features of this version:

   - Updated TurtleJS version, now save automatically context in the Journal
   - Updated Gears version, now use colors for gears
   - New Etoys activity (beta)
   - Favorites activities are now saved in user settings (so, could be
   retrieved from a device to another)
   - Favorites activities are now configurable at server settings
   - German localization



Do not hesitate to fork and contribute: I need you to Sugarize the world !

All contributors are welcome.



   Lionel.



P.S.: Special thanks for their contribution on this version to: Jorge
Alberto Gómez López (TurtleJS activity), Manuel Quiñones (Gears activity),
Bert Freudenberg (Etoys activity), Christian Stroetmann (German
localization), Jason Weathersby (Firefox OS support).

 Excellent progress! I'm impressed at how you typed in the user ID on

 we need to re-think the workflow.

 Thanks Sameer.
Today the user ID is just... the object identifier in the MongoDB database.
So of course, it's not very user friendly.
I hope to have something better in a next version. To be honest I didn't
want to have a standard user/password to identify user. I thought to
something that could be reminded easily but didn't find the good idea.

a browser Sugar Web activities wrote for Sugar 0.100+.

Sugarizer is available from a browser or as an Android application.



New in this version:

   - Three new activities:
  - Tank Operation: a Tuxmath like activity, practice math facts in an
  arcade game,
  - TurtleJS: a TurtleArt like activity. A taste of TurtleArt for any
  device !
  - ChatPrototype: see below.
   - Sugar compatibility: Sugarizer could now be used as a developer
   platform for Sugar-Web activity. So, developers could now develop Sugar
   activities only with a browser and a file editor. Resulting activities will
   work without any change on Sugar 0.100+.
   - Improve Journal view: rename, delete and popup menu.
   - Server collaboration: Sugarizer Server now allow each user to publish
   local journal content to the Server. Just go to the journal view and access
   to your private or to the shared journal zone. Plus, if you keep in mind
   your user id (in settings/server), you could use the same settings (name,
   color, language, private storage) from different computers.
   - Presence API prototype: Sugarizer include a first prototype of
   Presence API and a Chat test activity. You could chat with all other users
   on the same server.
   - Server connectivity to Client: The Android Client has capacity to
   connect to a Sugarizer Server. Just go to Server settings: check the
   connected checkbox and set your user id. You've now capacity to start your
   work on your PC then update it on your tablet !
   - Improved Android experience: Lot of issues related to Android
   environment has been solved.
   - API to server features: all server features are exposed as REST/JSON
   interfaces. So, developers could easily access to all server contents from
   any client (including, why not, the real Sugar journal).



Hope you'll enjoy it and you could say: Yes, I want to Sugarize the world.

Do not hesitate to fork and contribute.



   Lionel.

prototype), Ignacio (Spanish translation) for their contribution to this
version.

We didn't talk a lot about that and I'm afraid we miss to mention it but at
the end of next year, a team of OLPC France guys have achieved the
translation in French of the book Movilizacion social para CEIBAL.

It's a way for us to thanks Uruguay for its inspiring OLPC deployment.
The translated book is available here:

Hi all,



I'm proud to announce the third version of Sugarizer, a taste of Sugar for
any device.



http://sugarizer.org



To remind you, Sugarizer reproduce main features of Sugar in
HTML5/JavaScript. Sugarizer also expose these features to allow running in
a browser Sugar Web activities wrote for Sugar 0.100.



New in this version:

   - Full support of filtering in home view, list view and journal,
   - Localization: English, French and Spanish - thank to Alan,
   - Full buddy menu,
   - Settings dialog for name, buddy color and language,
   - 4 new activities:

   - Write: http://www.webodf.org/
   - Calculate: http://www.graphr.org/

Yes, you could need to delete the cache history to see the new version.

 Great work.
 I am trying to use the thin client, but I only see the activities from the
 version 0.2
 (and the content of the journal from the last time)
 Should I reset/clean something to see the new activities?

Thanks Manuel.

About menu, I'm still working on it: more to come on the next version. I've
also worked on Searchbox and Combobox that are two major parts of the UI -
at least for desktop features.
So I propose to discuss about how to upstream it in sugar-web after the
next release.

Lionel.

[IAEP] Sugarizer, a taste of Sugar on any device

2013-12-19 Thread Lionel Laské
Hi all,

I'm proud to announce the second version of my prototype of Sugar as a web
page. This version now include the list view of the home, datastore
handling, popup menu on activities, and journal view.

I've decided to name it Sugarizer and package it as a dedicated web site:

http://sugarizer.org

You could access to Sugarizer from the web site or download the Android.

To remind you the concept, Sugarizer reproduce main features of Sugar in
HTML5/JavaScript. Sugarizer also expose these features to allow running of
Sugar web activities wrote for Sugar 0.100. So all activities included in
the Sugarizer package work in the same way on Sugar 0.100.

Hope you'll enjoy it, it's my Christmas gift to the Sugar community :-)

Best regards from France.
