geek_code

A Dart implementation of the Geek Code.

This package is actually a port and cleaned up version of JGeekCode from Java.

Basic ideas

  • This library uses builders to generate the different categories that make up a Geek Code
  • Building a category is done by calling the grade method with a GeekCodeGrade or by calling some of the modifiers (i.e. noKnowledge) instead
  • The geek_code library includes a collection of base classes which are useful for implementing custom Geek Code flavors
  • The geek_code.v312 library is an implementation of the Geek Code v3.12 specification (specified at http://geekcode.com/geek.html), which is useful for generating a personal Geek Code

Generating a Geek Code with geek_code.v312

Start with a GeekCodeV312 object that will contain all the types and categories:

GeekCodeV312 code = new GeekCodeV312([G312.IT, G312.CS]);

The above constructor receives a list of GeekCodeTypes.

Then add categories to the code object using the addCategory(GeekCodeCategory).

All v3.12 categories are globally defined by their code:

code.addCategory(C.grade(new GeekCodeGrade(2))); // Adds the C category (Computers) with a grade of 2 to the code

Generating a Geek Code block is done by callin generate:

print(code.generate());

Modifiers

As per the v3.12 specification it is possible to set certain modifiers for categories.

code.addCategory(h.living().grade(new GeekCodeGrade(-2))); // Adds the h category (Housing) with a grade of -2 and adds the "living" modifier to the code

Some modifiers are incompatible with each other:

code.addCategory(h.living().noKnowledge()); // Throws a GeekCodeError

Full example

GeekCodeV312 code = new GeekCodeV312([G312.IT, G312.CS] as List<GeekCodeType>)
  ..addCategory(d.crossover(new GeekCodeGrade(0)).living().grade(new GeekCodeGrade(-1)))
  ..addCategory(s.roundness(new BasicGeekCodeCategoryBuilder().grade(new GeekCodeGrade(-1))).grade(new GeekCodeGrade(3)))
  ..addCategory(a.grade(new GeekCodeGrade(-3)))
  ..addCategory(C.grade(new GeekCodeGrade(2)))
  ..addCategory(U.B().grade(new GeekCodeGrade(2)))
  ..addCategory(P.noKnowledge())
  ..addCategory(E.grade(new GeekCodeGrade(-1)))
  ..addCategory(W.grade(new GeekCodeGrade(3)))
  ..addCategory(N.noKnowledge())
  ..addCategory(o.noKnowledge())
  ..addCategory(K.noKnowledge())
  ..addCategory(w.grade(new GeekCodeGrade(-3)))
  ..addCategory(O.noKnowledge())
  ..addCategory(M.grade(new GeekCodeGrade(2)))
  ..addCategory(V.noKnowledge())
  ..addCategory(PS.grade(new GeekCodeGrade(0)))
  ..addCategory(PE.refuse())
  ..addCategory(Y.grade(new GeekCodeGrade(0)))
  ..addCategory(t.noKnowledge())
  ..addCategory(BABYLON5.noKnowledge())
  ..addCategory(X.noKnowledge())
  ..addCategory(R.refuse())
  ..addCategory(tv.grade(new GeekCodeGrade(1)))
  ..addCategory(b.grade(new GeekCodeGrade(1)))
  ..addCategory(DI.grade(new GeekCodeGrade(0)))
  ..addCategory(D.noKnowledge())
  ..addCategory(GCode.grade(new GeekCodeGrade(2)))
  ..addCategory(e.grade(new GeekCodeGrade(0)))
  ..addCategory(h.grade(new GeekCodeGrade(-2)))
  ..addCategory(r.refuse())
  ..addCategory(z.male().grade(new GeekCodeGrade(0)));
print(code.generate());
