Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Georges Khaznadar <georgesk@xxxxxxxxxx>

* Package name    : turing
  Version         : 0.10~beta
  Upstream Author : Tom Niget <niget.tom@xxxxxxxxx>
* URL             : https://github.com/TuringApp/Turing
* License         : MIT
  Programming Lang: Python
  Description     : assistant to learn algorithms and programming languages

 Turing is a free and cross-platform app whose main goal is to assist
 the learning of algorithms and programming languages by providing
 easy-to-use development tools to all.
 It provides a lighter alternative to the well-known Algobox, which is
 the currently de-facto widely used solution.
 It provides two work modes:
 * Algorithm mode
     * Uses a "natural" pseudocode language similar to the one used in
       Algobox and school books.
     * Assisted development
 * Program mode
     * Uses Python, for the more experienced
 In both modes, the code can be debugged and executed step-by-step to
 facilitate the problem-solving side of development.


All the dependencies for the new package 'turing' are in Debian, except
python3-autopep8 which should enter unstable shortly, see bug #875906
which I am closing.

Turing's author is most enthusistic about pushing his work into Debian;
no much autors of high quality free software are aged 15.
