How was your holiday? Hope it was as good as mine! We stayed home, no going to faraway places this year, just enjoying the garden and home.

A friend claimed it would not be possible to do something like a roguelike via CGI. So I did a fun little project during holidays:


You can get the source and some notes and a Tkinter GUI for it at


Biggest problem was not the software design but getting CGI to work. The permission issues drove me nuts. It turned out that after creating a new db you have to wait a while before you can use it. Geez.

Unfortunately I am not a webserver wizard so my friend was right it is too slow. But it *is* fast enough with Apache running on my local machine.

If I can find somebody who can improve the performance (perhaps host it?), then it would be fun to add multiplayer and other things. The architecture is simple so adding stuff is not difficult.
