#178 closed defect (fixed)

Adding Memorize MIME information to the database

Reported by: erikos Owned by: erikos
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Memorize Version: Git as of bugdate
Severity: Major Keywords: GPA
Cc: Distribution/OS: Unspecified
Bug Status: Assigned


We need to add mime information to the database, so that games created by the activity can be transferred and recognized to other systems.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<mime-info xmlns="">
  <mime-type type="application/x-memorize-project">
         <comment xml:lang="en">Memorize Game</comment>
         <comment xml:lang="de">Erinnern Spiel</comment>
         <glob pattern="*.memorize"/>

We need to add this to mimetypes.xml and make sure it is installed and added to the database on installation.

I think this is fixing it. The database gets only updated on installation - not when using "./ dev". But should cover mostly all the cases. Will verify in next soas.

  • Keywords GPA added

This was uncovered as an issue at GPA.


If this will allow a kid to launch a specific Memorize instance with a specific game loaded directly from the Journal, it would have been very useful.

Not certain how much of an issue this is or isn't anymore; we can copy Memorize games to a USB device in OLPC 11.2.0 os14/Memorize-36, but they lack any extension in that case, and rely on Sugar's USB metadata support to figure out it's a Memorize game on another Sugar system.

When I save a game, and copy it to the usb drive, the file have a extension .memorize

Tested in 11.2

Tested in 11.3.0-os3 copying to and from USB, as well as with wiping the .Sugar-Metadata folder on the USB stick so no Sugar-specific hints other than the file extension were present.
