dwideck, the 21st-century response to Oblique Strategies

From the dwideck README:

The images in the dwideck directory are taken from the Design With
Intent Toolkit (http://www.danlockton.com/dwi) and are also sold as a
hardcopy deck of cards. Their license is as follows:

“With the exception of certain images, the proprietors and nature of

I found the file randomizer code here:

I split the original PDF into separate card images, and then deleted
anything that wasn’t one of the 101 Design With Intent cards. I put
them all in one directory, cobbled together a GNU/Linux script to
display them randomly from the page above, and packaged it up for you.

To install:

1. Move the dwideck directory wherever you want it, such as
/usr/share/dwideck or /home/foo/dwideck, and set the $dir variable in
the dwi script appropriately.

2. Move the dwi script somewhere you can call it easily, such as
/usr/local/bin/dwi or /home/foo/bin/dwi.

3. For bonus points, add a custom application launcher for dwi to your
panel, so you can call it with one click.

Share and Enjoy!
