KTurtle is an educational programming environment that uses TurtleSpeak, a programming language loosely based on and inspired by LOGO. The goal of KTurtle is to make programming as easy and accessible as possible. This makes KTurtle suitable for teaching young students the basics of math, geometry and... programming.

Some of the main features of KTurtle include:
* the ability to translate the programming commands into the native language of the student using the KDE translation framework.
* all you need integrated in in one application.
* simplified programming terminology.
* intuitive syntax highlighting and error markers.

== KDE 4.0 (v8.0) ==

KTurtle largely rewritten in the KDE4 porting effort. Canvas is now a based on QGraphicsView (SVG ready). The editor has new features. An inspector widget and a run console where added. Still some regressions (F2 context help, full-screen mode)

== KDE 3.3 (v0.7) ==
KTurtle is first released as part of the kde-edu module in KDE 3.3. But sadly a terrible bug regarding the Settings dialog slipped in.

== KDE 3.3.1 ==
In KDE 3.3.1, 2 bugs are fixed (inlcuding the "Settings" bug).

== KDE 3.4 ==
Small bugs fixed. F2 context sensitive help implemented.

== KDE from SVN ==
KTurtles bleeding edge developer version (currently 0.7+) can be obtained from KDE's SVN server (kdeedu/kturtle), see here how to do this:
Please note that some experience with kde-svn could be very helpfull while doing this.
You can also see who's up on #kde-edu @ irc.freenode.org.

 Pity about the build

Well, it looks good but I can't get it to build!

./kturtle.kcfg ./settings.kcfgc; ret=$?; \
if test "$ret" != 0; then rm -f settings.h ; exit $ret ; fi
/bin/sh: line 1: ./kturtle.kcfg: Permission denied
make[4]: *** [settings.h] Error 126

And yes, I did follow the README.

That's indeed a pity... :)

> And yes, I did follow the README

good you mention that, else i would have told you to go there...

Did you read this?


(especially the admin linking part)

If none of this works then please sent me (ciesinasia+AT+yahoo+DOT+com) a full shell-log from the "cvs co kdeedu/kturtle" to the "make" attempt.

Thanks for trying!

Yes, i've just checked out KTurtle from the CVS and followed the configuration & compilation steps. But I've got the following error when i use "make":

then mv -f ".deps/kturtle.Tpo" ".deps/kturtle.Po"; \
else rm -f ".deps/kturtle.Tpo"; exit 1; \
kturtle.cpp: Dans member function void MainWindow::setupActions() :
kturtle.cpp:161: error: `setupGUI' undeclared (first use this function)
kturtle.cpp:161: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once for
each function it appears in.)

This means you need newer kdelibs, setupGUI was added to kdelibs at around June 8 2004

Hi Euclides Chuma,

I'm Cies Breijs the initiator and main developer of KTurtle. As you might remeber I contacted you somewhere in 2002. I was inspired by your application and I wanted to help, yet I quickly found that I couldn't. At this point your app, KLogo-Turtle, suffered from:
- portugese symbols (class/ method and variable names) in the code
- all LOGO commands are hardcoded (every translation)
- there is no real interpreter, this prevents growth
Before I posted this I had a look at the current KLogo-Turtle's source code (0.6), and found non of these issues fixed.

So I started MyOwnLogoApp (for which I had to learn C++/Qt/KDE programming) and called it KTurtle.
- I found a BASIC interpreter in C++ called WSBASIC (wsbasic.sf.net) by Walter Schreppers, which i reused
- I wanted to use and re-use as much KDE as possible (now using Kate_part, XMLGUI, KConfigXT)
- for easy translation of the LOGO commands I wanted some external, extendible file format that plays nice with KDE's internationalisation framework (turned out to be XML)
- and I wanted to get into KDE-EDU, so KTurtle gets widely distributed

All the above points are in the current version of KTurtle, which ships with KDE 3.4!

> This Project is a clone of KLogo-Turtle.

Yes, this is true. I build a similar app because (1) I wanted to and (2) I couldn't work with yours.

> Missing new thinks.

Untrue! Euclides, don't get me wrong, I give you the full credit for inspiring me but you cannot say KTurtle misses 'new thinks', it has a lot of 'new thinks'!

I invite you to have a look at (the source of) a current version of KTurtle...

Kind regards,
Cies Breijs.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
