Kokua is NOT an attempt to create the ultimate TW2002 helper or scripting platform. In fact, it has been built to work explictly with TWXProxy (latest version at Google Code. Other helpers, like SWATH, have way more features than Kokua will probably ever have. In particular, Kokua does not focus on scripting, leaving that to the faster and more capable TWXProxy. Not that I'm against the idea of a fully-featured TW helper, I just don't have time or motivation.
This code is still in the early stages of development and is not meant for actual use. Use at your own risk
In the meantime, the following capabilies are either completed, in progress, or planned:
|Terminal emulation||Since 0.1|
|Multi-session support||Since 0.3|
|Macros||Since 0.1. Can record, stop, and replay|
|Status display||Since 0.1|
|Text parsing||In progress. Most obvious information is gathered, but much more needs to be scraped|
|Sector visualization||Since 0.2 Sectors can be customized by embedding attributes in the sector notes and using popup menu. Needs a lot more work to be really usable.|
|In-game chat||Since 0.4. Fedspace and subspace work fine, still working on private messages.|
|TWXProxy integration||Tested as of 0.4. Buttons on the toolbar script common TWXProxy script executions, and TWXProxy 2.0.4 comes with the Kokua distribution. Yes, TWXProxy can run in Linux with Wine.|
|Data storage||Since 0.1. Data is stored as serialized objects, but backed up as xml. When a new build is discovered, the data is loaded from the xml backups.|
|In Game Help||Since 0.5. Currently only game guides, but will add Kokua usage help if ever a need.|
Version 0.7 - June 16, 2007
Kokua requires Java 5 or greater to be installed.
Kokua comes as a completely self-contained jar file. For Windows users that have Java 5 installed, you should be able to just double-click on the file to run it. You can also execute the jar by running "java -jar kokua-VERSION-standalone.jar" at a command prompt where VERSION is the version you downloaded.
