We are proud to release Karma version 0.2 today. You can test out the demos here. You need Firefox 3.5 or Google Chrome/Chromium to run the demo. You can download the Karma-2.xo bundle here. We now have a well-documented API and a four part tutorial.

The Karma Project aims to create high-quality open-source educational software using openweb technologies, with special emphasis on the Sugar desktop educational environment. karma.js is a javascript library for manipulating HTML 5 and SVG in any context.

New Features:

Features that didn’t make it into Release 0.2:

  • Internationalization mechanism for inline text
  • new browsing layout (Chakra)

I am particularly proud of the Karma version of “Conozco a Uruguay”. You can try it out online right away.

If you are interested in Karma, the first step is to join our Google Group and to look through our four-part tutorial series.

  1. Introduction to karma.js
  2. Comparing HTML 5 Canvas and SVG
  3. Digging into Inkscape
  4. JavaScript and SVG

OLE Nepal and SugarLabs deserve special thanks for their continued support of the Karma Project.
