I have created a preliminary prototype of a board game card generator in OmniGraffle:
- merge data property values with graphic’s text
- style graphics based on a data property from visual style prototype
- export individual cards as individual files
Few features I am planning to add:
- include an image from a library of images in another sheet
- “enumeration” style: based on value pick an object from a list of objetcs, for example stars based on a numeric value from 1 to 5.
- simple CSV reader (not everyone has the ability or access to conversion of CSV to JSON)
It is just a rough sketch of the Card Maker idea, not perfect, neither clean. Improvements and fixes are welcome.
EDIT: Added screenshots.
