I created this thread for these purposes:
• finding existing sofwares for our needs
• requesting new sofware
• discussing what could be developed next and the best way to aproach the app functionalities
In my sig you can find some software I developed, and there is so much else we can do!

Feel free to discuss and don't forget to answer the poll with your opinion

I think this is a great idea.

Yeah I agree, such a pinned thread in software category will be useful.

Good idea. Glad to stick it if people find it useful and suggest stuff.

is it just me or we don't have enough megaminx tools and trainers?

#### Waffles

Not just you

I was trying to find something to gen LL algorithms for Megaminx and there was literally norhing

#### Waffles

Also we need something that can gen squan algs ig

Also if a way to gen CF Edges only algorithms in a 2 look phase that would be nice too. It’s not like I use CF or anything, but it would be interesting to do some kind of challenge with CF

Kthnx someone should like make a post listing most resources we already have

Do we have like a squan visualcube image generator in that cause I can't be bothered downloading the file lol

Algdb.net has a visualizer

Copy image address and modify it

EDIT: Try this out too:

Do we currently have a Pyraminx Image Generator (because a quick google search didn't bring up anything helpful)

#### Waffles

Does anyone know of an "alg-sorter" where you can put in specifications, paste in a bunch of text and remove the lines that don't contain (or do contain) the certain specifications?

Yeah; It's called grep.

you can now use Twizzle for that. Just put in the alg and go down to Alg Tools > Screenshot

I don't understand. Could you elaborate or give an example of what one of these "specifications" might be?

like for example you put S2 in and it finds every line that has an S2 and options come up, like delete and remove lines not containing this

that was a bad one but it was all I could think of

Ah I see. Sorry I don't have any suggestions but I'll tell you if I find something.

that sounds easy to write a quick script for, i could help if you like

One could easily make some software that can do term rewriting on algorithms.

Possibly something a bit like this? Just create a text file containing a list of algorithms in the same folder as the python file and it should work fine.
@Waffles

Python:
alg_list = open("algs.txt", 'r').read().splitlines()

filter_requirement = input("Exclude algs containing: ")
check_for_suffix = False

if len(filter_requirement) > 1:
check_for_suffix = True

output = []
for i in alg_list:
if filter_requirement in i:
if check_for_suffix:
if i[i.index(filter_requirement) + 1] == filter_requirement[1]:
print("Discarded item: " + i)
else:
output.append(i)
elif not check_for_suffix:
if i[i.index(filter_requirement) + 1] == " ":
print("Discarded item: " + i)
else:
output.append(i)
else:
output.append(i)

print("OUTPUT:")
for i in output:
print(i)
