OS Builder/Add additional Activities

From OLPC

Jump to: navigation, search

Look into the sugar_activity_group and sugar_activities_extra modules.

sugar_activity_group

If your activities are published online and can being fetched from public URLs, and you can manage a "Sugar Activity Group page" the best option is to use sugar_activity_group. This works both for the builder and for later updates.

Define a 'base URL' -- for example, http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Activities/YourDeployment . Add the module to the modules list and a new section:

 [sugar_activity_group]
 url=http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Activities/YourDeployment

The system will actually request a url adding the OS version number, so it will try, in order

 http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Activities/YourDeployment/10.1.3
 http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Activities/YourDeployment/10.1
 http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Activities/YourDeployment/10
 http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Activities/YourDeployment

For best control over activity versioning, create a page for this specific version http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Activities/YourDeployment/10.1.3 . The page uses theactivity microformat -- the easiest way is to start copying the contents of http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Activities/G1G1/10.1.3 or http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Activities/G1G1Lite/10.1.3

sugar_activities_extra

If your activities and content are not published, or you prefer to avoid maintaining a "Sugar Activity Group page", you can use sugar_activities_extra.

For just place them in a directory next to your INI file, and use the sugar_activities_extra module.

  • Add sugar_activities_extra to the modules list
  • For activities with a URL, just add a
 [sugar_activities_extra]
 url_1=http://foo.com/MyActivity-1.xo
 url_2=http://foo.com/MyContent-3.xol
  • For activities from your disk, create a directory activities, and add instead
 [sugar_activities_extra]
 local_dir=%(oob_config_dir)s/activities
