Mod simulator licensing

1 comment

What is the license that LAFORGE is attaching to the Mod simulator? The code is basically available via glitch at the moment, but I didn't see any indications on what license the code follows. (I'm looking to fix some issues, but I don't know if I'm able to share my results until I know the licensing.)

Never mind, I'm an idiot. The "package.json" lists the license as "MIT", so I'll go with that.

 

I took the liberty of adding in the official polyfills for HTML5 Web Components [1] so that the simulator can run in other browsers besides Google Chrome. I have uploaded the result to GitHub [2] if anyone else would like to use it!

    Google Maps and Waze are quite good at vehicle navigation but my experience is they are difficult to use when walking. I'd like to get feedback on a mod that shows simple navigation arrows, distances to waypoints & landmarks, points of interest, and similar meta data in a format that makes sense while walking wearing the Shima glasses. The user would start the navigation app of their choice on their mobile device and the Walkabout companion app would redirect and reformat the navigation information for the Shima glasses display. Thoughts/feedback?

    I wanted to see if it was possible to clarify "The Rules" (https://www.socialflo.com/rules-standards) we've been given for mods. In my opinion, it's confusing to see rules like "No web browsers" and "No eReaders, PDF viewers, Spreadsheets, or similar", while also having the first example on the same page discuss how to "steal" an idea from a web page and make it more directly visible. I can certainly understand if LAFORGE doesn't want users to have their field of vision replaced with full screens of any kind, but I'm not understanding the rules as they are written. A few hypothetical examples of why I'm confused: - I create a Mod that displays an entire text file two lines at a time. Is this "an eReader" and therefore forbidden, or have I just "stolen" the ability to digest the text in its simplest form as the website praises? - I create a Mod that shows in real-time the title of the current web page being browsed on my phone. Is that a "web browser" or "mirroring" and against the rules? - I create a Mod that shows videos in only one pane, and at only half-size. The Rules only state "no fullscreen playback of videos", so is this Mod valid or not? These are just a few ideas off the top of my head that suggest further clarification of what Mods are really supposed to be. Could someone chime in with a better summary of what LAFORGE is looking for? Thanks!

    So I'm currently interested an apps/mods for home automation. Control my lights when I walk through/into a room. Mod that is compatible with a whole host of security cameras, but without pan,tile and zoom features.
