Joakims notes

My intent is to work with Joseph to improve tarot.el. Here are the things I’d like to do:

TODO Multiple decks

Initially just the standard deck and a deck consisting of only the major arcana.

TODO Multiple spreads

I would like more spreads, the celtic cross to begin with.

TODO User shuffling after the deck

To simulate shuffling of a deck the user can make a random seed by wiggling the mouse or whatever.

TODO expose seed_random to lisp

(random t) does a hard-coded seed but for better shuffling we need to expose seed_random to lisp

TODO graphic spreads

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.

TODO 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 :)

TODO 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.

TODO look up cards in wikipedia
