Catch V If You CanEdit

During the hackathon we created the CatchVifYouCan app for
Android. CatchVifYouCan aims to bring health and (European) Culture into
the minds of its users. CatchVifYouCan mixes Scotland Yard, Pac-Man and the gameof Tag in an hightech innovative gameplay, combining the capabillities of a modern Android device with the culture of European cities. CatchVifYouCan transforms cities into urban playground offering a unique oppertunity to see a city in a new light and meeting interesting new people along the way.

About the hackEdit

The hack communicates with a server. The server is developed with Grails and exposes a REST-interface. For more information about the REST-interface see the API section.

What APIs, tools or kit did you use?Edit

The Google API is used to provide the map functionality.

The Android app is developed with the Eclipse IDE.

The backend is developed with IntelliJ Premium edition.

Works on Android versions: 10 - 16Edit

During development we focused on a narrow set of releases because we had access to a limited set of devices. Nothing prevents the application to be adopted to a wider set, but some time should be invested.

Android SDK APIsEdit

4.1

Third party APIsEdit

No third party API is used.

The following list the REST-interface for the "Catch V If You Can" back-end.

    Protocol | url                                                                 | result
    ---------+---------------------------------------------------------------------+-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    GET      | /api/game                                                           | returns a list of game ids
    POST     | /api/game                                                           | creates a new game
    GET      | /api/game/$gameId                                                   | returns a list of player ids in game $id
    GET      | /api/game/$gameId/$playerId                                         | returns the trail of player $playerId in $gameId
    PUT      | /api/game/$gameId/$playerId                                         | registers player $playerId to game $gameId
    POST     | /api/game/$gameId/$playerId?latitude=$latitude&longitude=$longitude | adds a location at $latitude, $longiture for player $playerId in game $gameId
    GET      | /api/game/$gameId/$playerId/$n                                      | retrieve $n-th location in the trail of player $player in game $game


The run below demonstrates how the create a game, add some players to the game and update the trail of the players with [cUrl][13]. All the urls should be prepended with a correct server and endpoint, e.g. http://localhost:8080/server/

    curl -X POST -d "format=json" /api/game  // { "status":"ok" }
    curl -X GET /api/game?format=json        // { "game":[1] }
    curl -X PUT /api/game/1/anna?format=json // { "status":"ok" }
    curl -X PUT /api/game/1/bob?format=json  // { "status":"ok" }
    curl -X GET /api/game/1?format=json      // { "players":["anna","bob"] }
    curl -X POST /api/game/1/anna?longitude=0&latitude=0 // { "status":"ok" }
