Easy openSUSE Upgrade

a project by maverick74

The idea is about an easy way to allow users to make upgrades (e.g.: changing from one major version like 15.0 to version 15.1) using a GUI and as easy as they can in Ubuntu. Something like a notification with a button to perform the upgrade with just one-click, instead of having to deal with the terminal, that frights some new users and gives them the sensation of an outdated system.

Port some classic game to Linux

a project by MDoucha

Let's pick some old classic game, reverse engineer the data formats and game rules and write an open source engine for it from scratch. Some games from 1990s are simple enough that we could have a playable prototype by the end of the week. Write which games you'd like to hack on in the comments. Don't forget to check e.g. on Open Source Game Clones, Github and SourceForge whether the game is ported already.

a project by jeff_mahoney

New Development In previous hack weeks, the first few days ended up being wasted on just getting it working. I'm pleased to share that the code quality has improved dramatically since the last hack week and there are now extensive test cases for both unit testing and testing against real vmcores, and we'll use both mypy and pylint (if installed) to perform static analysis. Packages for those are available in openSUSE or as part of the crash-python OBS repo for SLE15. It has been tested with kernels from 3.0 to 5.1.

Self Watering Indoor Vegetable Garden

a project by kberger65

Project Description

This first part of this project will build a moisture sensor using an ESP32 board and circuit python. I am hoping to implement a notification method using SMS or Email. Additionally, future plans include adding a Web based interface to view historical data as well as optionally adding some mini pumps that will water the plants once a specified moisture level (very little detected) has been reached.

I was talking with a friend the other day who is blind. He briefly explained to me how he reads books (the regular, paper printed ones). So, he is taking a photo of each page, passes that to the OCR to extract the text in digital form, then passes that to some text to speech engine to read it out loud.

an invention by dspinella

Project Description

rinit is an init written in Rust. It offers a valid alternative to systemd for PID 1 and service management. It uses the supervision to manage long running programs (deamons), log everything to files (no binary log interface) and provides an easy to use command line interface. rinit is already working and able to spawn services and handle their dependencies.
