In order to help you practice in the GCompris framework, I propose you to make this little exercise.

Mandatory: GCompris development is done on a GNU/Linux distribution of your choice.

  • Install GNU/Linux on your computer if you don't already have it.
  • Get the GCompris code from the Git version control system.
  • Compile GCompris.
  • Create a new Python activity using the supplied script. For example, use you nick name as the activity name.
  • Compile GCompris again.
  • Run your activity with the script (it is just the template for now).
  • Modify the activity to display an image, an ellipse, a rectangle, a line and a text.
  • Add an event to a graphical object so that clicking on it does something visual.
  • Test your activity by running until you are happy with the result.
  • Use git to commit your changes locally.
  • Use git to display the patch
  • Publish the patch to github.
