HackProp 2: Paint Partners

Hack Prop Title: Paint Partners


A collaborative drawing tool made in Python using PyGame as the GUI, and homemade networking code borrowed from Hack1. Ideally would be able to be used as a teaching tool, by limiting the teacher to be the only one able to draw.


The only library we need to be using is PyGame.

Upstream Repository:


The only hardware we need is the Raspberry Pi, Display, Input Devices


I will be working with mstubinis for the project

Project Milestones:

  1. Develop non-server side code to modify and display an image, load config data, and prepare text fields
  2. Develop server side and networking code to send and process information: pixel data, chat messages, client connecting and disconnecting from server, admin issuing commands through console
  3. Finish development tasks, build documentation, distribute upstream.



Upstream Mentor:

Currently none, but the project isn't really different from our last one in terms of what needs to be done.

Final Thoughts:

This project should be an interesting build off of the work that was done on Hack 1 and should serve as a cool project providing a service.
