a tarot card reader in Python

I’ve recently been helping some work colleagues get their heads around Python’s Flash web toolkit, and it seemed like a good opportunity to update my old Ruby tarot card reader to Python.


The app draws one or more randomly selected cards from a dictionary (hash) of 72 Tarot card description and image references.

The card images used are Arthur Waite’s deck, by artist Pamela Colman Smith. According to Wikipedia they are out of copyright in the US now and will be in the UK in 2022.

The source code to this app is here – please feel free to fork or re-use, there are no license restrictions.
