Contents

Like the Activity Grid, this is a grid of content bundles, asset libraries and other materials available for download to the laptop. Content bundles on this page should have been tested to some degree on a build, and should indicate which builds they work on. Click on the name of any bundle for detailed information.

If you have a content bundle that's ready for public consumption, please add it to the grid. If you're not sure about its readiness, you can add descriptions and links to the talk page.

  • The content page has general information about contributing content.
  • Content bundles has information about creating a content bundle.
  • The current version of the OLPC Library is here

To-do

  • Update the browser mime-type list so it knows how to unpack and stow away content bundles
  • Update the library main page to generate its navigation dynamically from its directory list
  • Publicize this standard to people with game, audio, video, text, and other libraries; including activities that are registering mime-types with the browser and want to offer a way to browse their projects without launching them directly: for instance, Etoys should automatically produce a content bundle linking to its projects on the laptop build... perhaps with a section linking to other projects online.
