I´m a noob and currently on the computer science path around lvl 5. And I have a win sys.
I think I was reading the tarot card lesson instructions and I didn’t do the lesson, instead I got a bit off the rail in sublime.
side note : One of my favorite magazines is “Take a break in Fate and Fortune” from UK, It´s mega funny and I took some inspiration out of it.
good news is, my code works
but I think it could be more elegant ( I imagine the file gets larger and I add stuff)
You can find a picture of the dictionary and output attacht. I don´t want this post to look to messy.
Should I put the dictionaries in a separate file?
Should I put all the output messages in a separate file?
I guess my main problem is the structure itself. When I think about the scope, I want to be flexible.
Therefore when do I decide to split it up in multiple files?
scope or have not´s:
I want to prompt user input for “past”, “present” , “future” or “today” or all together
I would like to sum up the current if statements and use the while loop for user input instead
I want to replace card_deck_count with the length of deck in use.
(Just in case I want to add the bigger deck as well)
Should I randomly generate a number (1 til 3) for the second that the script should sleep?
Should I print random comments until the user respond?
I really would love to do the following as well, but I need a better foundation to tackle it:
create a standalone
does it work on Linux/Mac as well? Is it User Friendly?
Any feedback on how to structure it proper is more than welcome.
