Help! I need help thinking of python projects I can do.

Help! I need help thinking of python projects I can do. I’m not very good at thinking of projects. I’m not looking for super advanced projects. Like, beginnerish projects to help me learn more python. Don’t suggest, like, a web scraper or something like that. I’ve already done rock, paper, scissors; guess the number; calculator; dice; and flip the coin. Any other ideas?

@BumboCactoni, googling ”beginner Python projects” gave me quite a few goodlooking hits, hangman game etc.
If you find something you like, but are concerned whether it would be doable on Pythonista, we will be happy to help.

@BumboCactoni
i just posted Space Escapeyou could use this to understand Scene more and create somthing from there? or even add to it. im going to start a new project of a game that will let you set tasks and give experience acordingly with rewards. mostly for kids and to help motivate doing stuff like chores.
i alo have a RPG Template in the works.this is a more long term project but i hope to get it done soon lol

Hi maybe you can help me with this one?
I am trying to put together a tactical kneepad tool for virtual fighter pilots.
It helps with situational awareness concrening bullseye BRAA calls in game.
This is what i got so far and should work out of the box so you can check it out:import matplotlib.pyplot as plt import numpy as np import math class Vector (list): ''' Simple 2D vector class to make vector operations more convenient. If performance is a concern, you are probably better off looking at numpy. Supports the following operations: * Initialization from two arguments, two keyword arguments (`x` and `y`), tuple, list, or another Vector. * Equality and unequality comparisons to other vectors. For floating point numbers, equality tolerance is 1e10. * `abs`, `int` and `round` * Addition and inplace addition * Subtraction * Multiplication and division by a scalar * `len`, which is the same as `magnitude`, see below. Sample usage: v = Vector(x = 1, y = 2) v2 = Vector(3, 4) v += v2 assert str(v) == '[4, 6]' assert v / 2.0 == Vector(2, 3) assert v * 0.1 == Vector(0.4, 0.6) assert v.distance_to(v2) == math.sqrt(1+4) v3 = Vector(Vector(1, 2)  Vector(2, 0)) # 1.0, 2.0 v3.magnitude *= 2 assert v3 == [2, 4] v3.radians = math.pi # 180 degrees v3.magnitude = 2 assert v3 == [2, 0] v3.degrees = 90 assert v3 == [0, 2] ''' abs_tol = 1e10 def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs): x = kwargs.pop('x', None) y = kwargs.pop('y', None) if x and y: self.append(x) self.append(y) elif len(args) == 2: self.append(args[0]) self.append(args[1]) else: super().__init__(*args, **kwargs) @property def x(self): ''' x component of the vector.

What i want to do next is integrate this into something like sketch.py demo.
To make it possible to draw things onto like flightpath & annotations etc.
Also the feature of exporting as img is handy for recap and debriefing.Take a look maybe you like this project.
Regards,
Robert.

@robStacks
You want me to help?
I don’t know much Python, so I don’t think I’ll be able to help. Sorry. I am working on learning a lot more python, but right now I just don’t have the knowledge or experience to help. I wish I could help. Sorry. :(

@BumboCactoni that request has already be takin care of in another thread but helping others is the best way to learn 😉 you will research stuff and learn aspects you may never have or create new objects to put in your
cook book
. for example i created thisButtonNode
and i probably wouldnof made one at some point but not as neat and propbably not so universal in a way. jump out there help people help you 🤠 community is about teamwork💯

Ok no worries Bumbo i am also a beginner in python and it is a great code language.
Its easy to read and understand and with a great communitie very helpfull.
I managed to create something awesome and usefull in a short time thx to that.

Its starting to look like an useable app already👍🏻
I am looking into API's right Now not so hard to use and lots of them look it up.
Maybe you can find a nice project for u with the use of API'sGoodluck finding a Nice project!

Thank you!
Also, I kinda have a slightly random question. What is your favorite app or website to learn python on? I use SoloLearn right now, since it’s free.

@robStacks, suggest moving the Vector implementation to a file called
vector.py
insitepackages
. Then you can import it and it does not distract you from your own code.

@mikael Yes thx for pointing that out to me did so and is so much better👍🏻

Yay! I’ve thought of a good project to do! Hopefully it won’t be too complicated... by the way, does anyone know how to display a picture? I’ve tried googling it, but it’s all a load of mumbo jumbo to me.

Using
Image
Module:import Image with Image.open('my_img.png') as img: img.show()
Using
ui
Module:import ui class MyView(ui.View): def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs): self.img = ui.Image.named('my_img.png') self.iv = ui.ImageView( image=self.img, width=ui.get_screen_size()[0], height=ui.get_screen_size()[1]) self.add_subview(self.iv) MyView().present('fullscreen')
Using
scene
Module:import scene class MyScene(scene.Scene): def setup(self): self.sn=scene.SpriteNode( texture=scene.Texture('my_img.png'), parent=self, position=self.size/2) scene.run(MyScene())

@stephen
Thank you!

@BumboCactoni Your Welcome

Now I have another question: How do you display a picture that you can move with your finger?

😁 I like making these examples! Give me just a few.

@stephen
Have you ever seen, like, those super simple blockprogramming apps? That they use to semiteach people to program?

I am trying to make my own blockprogramming thingy, but I don’t know how to create the blocks, make them movable, or even make them connect together.

Like minecraft/terreria?

You mean like moving the items in the inventories?
If so, yes, that is kinda what I mean.
